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.”

Loving this podcast. The information Kimberly is sharing is invaluable! A must listen if you feel stuck, “lost”, or misguided in your career life. These are great takeaways that can even be applied outside of your work life to be honest. Looking forward to more.

Your Next Move

Kimberly’s content is billed as being for women and people of color. As a white male, I feel that her content is universally applicable. As a person that benefited from privilege I appreciate having access to this point of view. I feel that being able to get an understanding of these topics from her perspective helps me better approach these topics with my employees.I hope she keeps producing new episodes and publishing books.
