“It's so important, to first and foremost, just know who you are, and then find the right support, so that you can truly be supported and guided to create your own success”

 

Are you a highly sensitive entrepreneur? If you think you are, this podcast would be the best one for you to listen to. Kim talks to founder and leader of the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur movement Heather Dominick. Here she talks about the strengths and shadows of being a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur.

 

Heather is a student of the psychological and spiritual curriculum of a course in Miracles for over 30 years. Her journey to self discovery has led her to where she is right now. Combined with her knowledge of Dr. Elaine Aron’s research and studies about Highly sensitive individuals, Heather was able to come up with 12 HSE shadows and strengths. Join Kim and Heather as they break down the health issues, discuss the coping mechanisms, possible triggers of being an HSE and how a change in perception is the true game changer in being an HSE.

“Give somebody fish they'll eat for a day, teach them how to fish they will eat for life”

 

Chief Awesomeness Officer is just one of the many titles that Arthur Carmazzi holds in his lifetime. He is also the founder of the Directive Communication Psychology, a motivational Keynote Leadership speaker and he has also been named as one of the top 10 leadership Gurus Globally.

 

At a very young age, Arthur already had a knack for being an entrepreneur. He sold bubble yum and fake tattoos during his early teen years and with this, he was able to buy his first car during 8th grade. After an amazing business streak, he got stabbed in Puerto Rico and his life completely changed. He traveled the world for 3 years, met a girl, followed her to Korea, went broke, went half a million in debt and got a job which he did not like. But during his lowest point he had an epiphany that paved the way to his now most successful ventures.

 

Discover how Arthur came up with the concept of Avalon, his ideas for Directive Communication Psychology and how Gamification came about. Here in this podcast he also talks to Kim about his Squadli app, his book and how his creations can lead your company to a higher performing culture.

“I am willing to take all the risk and be disliked by people because I know that the positivity that I spread completely outweighs that negativity”

 

Trevor Perry is a URXO perspective catalyst and his passion is to let people know that they are EXTRAORDINARY, hence the URXO title. Coming from a small country town in Australia, Trevor was a very entertaining young kid who was very good at Math. With this, he went on to be an Accountant and thought this would be his career for life; not until his divorce. Going through a hard time he went into improv and street theater and rediscovered himself. He then found a passion for storytelling.

 

His message is all about being extraordinary, finding your passion and learning to overcome your fears. In this podcast he also talks about MAD or your “make a difference thing” and the equation on how to live an extraordinary life.

 

Let Trevor and Kim guide you as you find your life message and become the person you are meant to become.

“Along the way, there are silver linings, and if we are not still we don't see them, just be still...those silver linings are what can bring you joy”

There’s two ways we can look at the world. There’s a fixed mindset… and there’s a growth mindset… People who have a growth mindset are more likely to be successful.”

The entrepreneurial world is very small, and, coincidentally, Bonnie Fahy and Kim worked together 5-6 years before this conversation.

Bonnie was a balloon artist, who, after learning about SEO, became a consultant. At a conference party, she was amazed by the $38K+ bar bill they racked up in a couple hours — and didn’t even flinch over. She wanted to know how they managed to make the money to afford such bills.

Listen to hear Bonnie and Kim dive deep into the topic of outsourcing!
