In her talk, Kimi will discuss:

1. Your comfort level in being seen

Your mindset will allow you to take bold action in stepping out and communicating with the world. Or, it will hold you back by playing small.

2. The power of putting your words on paper (or the computer)

There is something magical about putting pen to paper.

Paul J. Meyer said, “Writing crystallizes thought and thought produces action.”

3. The impact your message can have on your pocketbook and in the world

You can increase your income and make a difference in the world simply by communicating your message in a bigger way. And one of the best ways to do that is to write a book.
