KEY POINTS / MAIN TAKEAWAYS:
“Bloom where you're planted and sow where you are fed.”
“The secret here is that most professionals like to say they've outgrown their role. But I found that may not be the case, it's more likely that you've outgrown your desire to be in that role.”
“From what I've learned, many times, we're not taught how to be strategic with our careers. We're taught to get a new job, do the job, and then figure out how to get another job. We've spent more time learning how to get a job than how to build strategy in the job that you have, and thinking about your career outside of that one job that you're holding.”

Kimberly is a gem! Going to grab a copy of her book.
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.
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.
Short and easily ingestible coaching and informational knowledge. Kimberly tells relatable stories and gives great career advice!
