Cultivating "Compulsion" to Drive Towards Your Dreams

In this episode, Kimberly shares her favorite topic and the question she receives most: How do you have the drive to do all the things you’ve done?

Tune in as your host shares why she doesn’t care about motivating or inspiring you. Compelled to achieve her dreams, so much so that it never felt like a choice, Kimberly wants to help you take action in order to create change in your life. So what drives you? Listen in as she reveals three questions to guide you toward a vision and compulsion to take action!


  • Motivation and inspiration don’t always lead to action
  • Why it’s less about motivation and more about compulsion
  • How Kimberly defines compulsion
  • Why you need a clear vision
  • What gets you excited?


“We all know motivation doesn't always lead to action. You could feel super excited and motivated after reading a book, but are you actually going to put the plan together that allows you to achieve whatever goal it is that you'd like to achieve?”

“My conscious wishes sometimes are to relax, to unwind, to do less. But compulsion drives me to move forward.”

Kimberly literally shares everything I only WISH I knew before working my way up the corporate ladder and transitioning into a job that I’d love (and one that paid me WELL). She touches on everything from pivoting in my career to salary negotiations - and what I appreciate most is that she speaks from a place of experience! She has RECEIPTS. I also love that the information is delivered in bite sized episodes - short enough for a quick listen, but long enough to make a lasting impact and providing actionable tips to implement. This podcast has my highest recommendation - especially for women of color looking to break through limiting beliefs, secure their dream position, and finally to get paid their worth.
