In the 90s, social media entrepreneur Kim Garst was sick of being broke, so she launched a seven-figure business from her dining room table with no marketing. When she maxed out on that web design business, Garst became involved in a wildly successful network marketing business, which morphed into consulting, and eventually Boom Social, a social media marketing firm that is considered a leader in its industry.
In this episode, Kim and I discuss:
- How the heck she is such an involved mom of two, and wife, while building these killer businesses.
- Her innate comfort with making money.
- Why her derailment from plans to attend law school by motherhood was the best thing that happened to her career.
- Why selling your knowledge is often far more lucrative and impactful than doing the actual job.
- The importance of surrounding yourself with other positive, ambitious people.
- Her husband’s attitude about her professional and financial success.
