If you’ve been feeling complacent in your career or lacking in vision, her tools are guaranteed to reignite purpose and acceleration to your drive. Your Next Move is the empowerment and advising I didn’t know I needed until now. I can’t wait until the book comes out. Thank you, Kimberly!!lol

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 gives excellent advice about how to reflect on where you’d like to go in your career and act strategically to grow with intention & integrity. Highly recommend not only this podcast for the great tips and interviews but also her book.
