“I think care culture is really about this idea of wellness and fitness coaches say that for you to be happy, you have to have this product or look like this, right? It's almost it's the reason why people feel like they gotta get in shape before they go to the gym, right?” – Percell Dugger

“There's a lot of joy in my community. There's joy in people, and I want to celebrate that at every chance that I get. And I don't care too much about whether or not you weigh this amount or your genius fits like this. You can love yourself. And more importantly, loving yourself and loving others can have a far greater impact on society than having ‘great abs or nice biceps’ — nobody cares at the end of the day.” – Percell Dugger

This podcast came right on time! My fiancé attended a conference & met Kimberly. He immediately told me about her book and her story & I was hooked. I really feel like listening to this podcast and reading her book will truly propel me and many into the next career move. Often times I find podcast that speak solely to quitting your job, but what about us that really enjoy what we do and just want to elevate? Kimberly did THAT! & I’m appreciative.This isn’t a podcast that you listen to in the background, GRAB YOUR PEN & PAPER! 🙌🏾

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.
