Lessons from Local Leaders:

Kimberly Smith

Navigating life’s transitions elegantly, a seasoned manager/coordinator shares her journey of trading the security of her former role for the adventure of entrepreneurship, all while keeping her family at the forefront. Our guest, alongside her ‘boss friend’ Nikki, offers a candid look at the highs and lows that come with such a bold move. From the comfort of a stable job to the thrills of building a business from the ground up, their story is a testament to the power of resilience, friendship, and accountability, even as they joined forces in a planking group to stay grounded during the uncertainties of a global pandemic.

As the conversation flows, we uncover the intricate dance of maintaining personal connections in the face of a digitized, fast-paced real estate landscape. Our guest opens up about creating a personal brand that’s as distinctive as her leadership style, demonstrating how one’s identity can shine through professional endeavors and inspire others. She doesn’t shy away from the realities of evolving client expectations, the necessity of adapting to new technologies, and the art of nurturing kindness in a transactional world, offering personal anecdotes and strategies for fostering patience and empathy.

Wrapping up with a heart-to-heart on the personal side of professional life, our guest delves into the challenges of combating self-doubt and embracing positivity. Authenticity becomes the cornerstone of our discussion as we wade through the importance of owning one’s mistakes and leading with transparency. The narrative closes on a powerful note, introducing a transformative writing exercise designed to confront and dispel insecurities, a practice that promises not only personal growth but also the potential to revolutionize the way real estate agents engage with their profession. Join us for a session that’s as enriching for the soul as it is for the savvy business mind.
