Kim Garst was online before any of us even knew what e-mail was, and now she’s on Forbes list of the Top Ten Women Social Media Influencers. On this week’s episode of Glambition Radio, Kim tells the story of how she started her business from her dining room and became one of the top resources in the world of social marketing. And why she’s decided to show entrepreneurs how to “Show Up, Be Authentic and Prosper in Social Media”.
Kim wanted to make a living while being a shome-based mom. The Internet had just been born, and she saw an opportunity in the marketplace for website design, so she turned her dining table into her office and created her first 7-figure business. That website design business soon evolved into a website hosting service. When a client offered Kim $100 an hour to be his marketing consultant, her ‘eyes opened really wide’, and discovered her knowledge was worth even more than her services.

When Kim was in my private coaching group, I helped her develop and streamline programs for her marketing strategy business. (She shared that during that year her revenues increased by over $270K!) As the CEO of her own marketing and training business, Boom! Social, Kim helps businesses of all sizes accelerate their profits with proven social media and digital marketing strategies. And she’s become a leading expert in her field, appearing regularly in the Huffington Post, Forbes, Fox News and Business Week.
Her current bestseller is “Will the Real You Please Stand Up: Show Up, Be Authentic, and Prosper In Social Media”. It guides business owners through one of today’s biggest struggles for success, and shows them how to stay true to their brand in the massive landscape of social media.
On this episode of Glambition Radio, Kim and I discuss why entrepreneurs need to embrace the controversy, ignore the numbers, and start a conversation. And you’ll find out why Kim wants me to get on a roller coaster and try snowmobiling!
