Kim is a life changer. I had heard she was the best of the best from so many others, but it wasn’t until I met her and experienced working with her that I truly understood the impact she has on people’s lives.

I was referred to Kim by good friends of mine who had purchased a franchise through her, and was immediately impressed by Kim’s ability to guide me through a process to evaluate franchises and help me follow my dream of owning my own business. She took the time to truly understood what we were looking for, to understand our goals and fears, to be patient when my husband and I were moving along the process at different paces, and ultimately to direct us to franchises that aligned with our wants and needs.

After looking at a variety of amazing franchise concepts that Kim introduced us to, we had it narrowed down to one. I went to Discovery Day, and came away, frankly, not feeling that “ah ha” moment to sign on that others described. Despite the franchise aligning with the goals Kim helped us narrow down, we were still hesitant. But, Kim challenged and encouraged us, in a perfectly balanced way, to get us past our fears and work towards achieving our goal of business ownership.

Fast forward, we just completed our 3rd full month of business. While every day continues to be a learning opportunity and a challenge, my husband and I are so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the Budget Blinds brand. The business is exceeding our already lofty goals, and most importantly, we’re able to prioritize what’s important to us day in and day out. We also surprisingly love what we do every day even though we originally thought it would push us outside our comfort zone — no Sunday scaries over here. Owning our own business is one of the most nerve-wracking, emotionally and relationally challenging experiences we’ve ever had, but also the most rewarding and thrilling experience and we wouldn’t have gotten to this point without Kim. We’re so incredibly thankful that she talked us over that final hurdle, so that we could experience this great satisfaction of taking a risk to work towards what we felt was best for our family. She truly has changed and continues to change our lives for the better. Thank you Kim!
