Why It’s Important to Invest in Your Personal and Professional Development

Many of us are taught that you get a job and work your way up year after year, head down just grinding. So if you work really hard, someone will realize it and promote you. Right? Unfortunately, this is not what always happens. So how can you be sure you aren't stuck in the same place professionally year after year?

Tune in as Kimberly explains why personal and professional development is crucial to your success and upward mobility, both in and outside of your organization. And shares her three tips for connecting with professional associations and catapulting your career!


  • How Kimberly was introduced to personal and professional development
  • You don’t want to be in the same place professionally year after year!
  • “Relationships are still everything”
  • The value of professional associations and organizations
  • Embrace the opportunity, show up fully, and hold yourself accountable


“It's unacceptable, in my opinion, to be in the same place year after year with no change in your own personal and professional growth, especially if you're unsure or unclear, not knowing what your next steps are.”

Your Next Move

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

I just listened to Episode 22, Being an Ambitious Woman with Tiffany Aliche and was so impressed. The time just flew by as I enjoyed the solid career advice Kimberly and Tiffany shared. Documenting your accomplishments was one of the ideas that I thought was especially good -- because if YOU don't know what you accomplished and what your big wins are, you cannot possibly expect others to remember. I look forward to tuning in again.

Your Next Move

This is not a podcast you can listen to while cruising or running errands. Kimberly drops so many FREE gems in each episode, you’ll regret not having something to jot them down. 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
