Today’s episode of True Grit and Grace is about a different kind of resilience: building a successful business or career. If you’ve been working on this kind of goal, you know the ups and downs it takes you through all sorts of challenges, ESPECIALLY with things like social media, SEO and getting more eyeballs on your brand. I am so excited to bring you an incredible expert on how to build “career capital,” find your dream customers, and share your best work with the world.

Kim Kaupe is an accidental entrepreneur, educator, podcaster, and speaker. She started her first business in 2011 at age 25 and in 9 years, she learned how to go from zero clients to Oprah, no one knowing who she was to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list and not knowing what an LLC was to securing offers from 4 out of 5 sharks on Shark Tank.

Now, she opens her playbook to show others exactly how she did it. Kim works with executives & future leaders to harness their voice & image to expand their network. She dusts off the ordinary to reveal the extraordinary in her clients whose perceived value in the workplace does not match the actual value they bring to the table. By showing others how to showcase their strengths, she’s building an army of leaders who are ready to take center stage.
