Are you a People Pleaser?

Caveat: This is not a post bashing people pleasers. Making people happy is a gift + a pleasure. I myself am impassioned to help people feel that they intrinsically matter. Because they do. However, if my actions are not aligned to my own wants/needs the act of pleasing people becomes fertile ground for resentment + [...]

This is going to be quick + dirty, and very much unlike uncomfortable conversations in real life. What is an uncomfortable conversation?

I’m Not Good Enough: Waging War on your Inner Critic

For me, 2016 was mentally, spiritually and emotionally charged. It was 366 days of face plants and feeling not good enough, peppered with some of the most soul-liberating experiences of my life. I became part of a tribe that breathed oxygen into the embers of my soul; I found a man that sees the world [...]

Why Every Entrepreneur Needs a Business Coach

I am overwhelmed and oh-so-honoured by the welcome + acceptance I've received in Q4 of 2016 from various social media outlets.

Being an Entrepreneur can be heartbreaking Oh. My. [...]

How to be Fear-Positive

Lately, I've been discussing the business of being busy and KD and You's ANTI-Busy Revolution. Today, I'd like to take a stroll into fear and what what it means to be what I call, Fear-Positive. I'm sure you've had those nights where you woke up at 3:00am, panicking for no reason. Maybe it's the fear of never seeing another [...]

Making Your 2017 Goals Work For You

2017 Goals are on the brain over at KD and You. We are just days away from 2017 and I had the distinct pleasure of guest blogging for my fellow badass boss babe, Britt over at Bourbon and Honey. If you know me, you know I'm not a fan of highly structured or regimented plans. [...]

Why I’ll never say “I’m busy”, again

I'm busy. Probably my least favourite sentence of 2016, and the pain-point for KD and You's newest theme. For those of you just joining me, welcome to the ANTI-BUSY Revolution. A movement with the hustle and heart to banish busyness to restore productivity and simplicity, to an over-complicated world. Today, much like every day, I [...]

Extroversion 101: An Introvert’s Guide

“Hi, I’m Kimberley Dawn, it’s 2011 and I’m a scaredy-pants. I’m terrified to put myself out there and get rejected. I spend days before parties torturing myself with “what-ifs”.
