About Kim Carpenter

What I really want you to know about me is that I’m just a person on the planet wanting to leave it better than I found it. I believe one of the best ways to do that is to change how business works. As business owners, we’ve got to take a stand for what we believe is right and then take action to change things for the better. And if you’re here reading this, there’s a really good chance that you’re one of those business people that want to make the world a better place too. In fact, you probably want to play a really BIG part in that. Am I right?

I’m committed to helping entrepreneurs do more good in the world through their business activities. I believe that small business owners, entrepreneurs and solopreneurs are optimally positioned to create positive change. Think about it – you don’t have to report to a board or a bunch of shareholders. You can be nimble, flexible, and ninja-like in your business maneuvers. You’re the head honcho. You call the shots! You CAN make a difference in any way that you choose.

 

THE REST OF THE STORY

For over 15 years, Kim was an executive for some of the world’s top online marketing and advertising agencies. By all accounts, she had a great career. Nice salary and 401K. Big fancy offices with views of SOHO. So, it’s no wonder her family and friends rolled their eyes when she complained about being unhappy with her career.

What was the problem? Kim longed to do more good in the world through her work. Even though her clients at Mastercard, BlueCross, FootLocker, Toyota and Pepsi were great people, she didn’t give two hoots about marketing credit cards or selling more sneakers. Her soul was aching for more meaning, and she knew she had to make a big change.

She quit her job, sold everything and gave up her Carrie Bradshaw-esque New York City life. After spending a year traveling through India, Israel, Germany, Italy and Cyprus, she knew two things for sure — she had to take a stand for "good business", and she had to surround herself with clients and a community with the same values.

Kim’s clients rely on her socially conscious + business savvy mentorship to help them focus their efforts for maximum efficiency, profitability and positive impact.

After traveling the world for most of her life, Kim is now settled in Austin, Texas where she enjoys running by the lake, dining at foodie restaurants, and networking with amazing social entrepreneurs at places like Impact Hub, The Center for Social Innovation, and Capital Factory.

Kim Carpenter is available for speaking engagements, workshops and retreats.

INCREDIBLY MOTIVATING AND INSPIRING

I asked Kim to put together a custom workshop for my team. Kim did a masterful job of creating a workshop that encouraged the team to set specific goals and commit to those goals. She taught us new ways of thinking about limiting beliefs that may be holding us back from achieving the goals we want. Kim is incredibly motivating and inspiring. She is organized and detail oriented. I would encourage anyone to work with her!
