In this episode, Kim and Felecia are taking on…

  • The question adults commonly ask children that shuts down their ability to get creative with their opportunities
  • The tough lessons Felecia learned early in her entrepreneurial career that helped set her up for success as a leadership speaker
  • Why it’s so important to act on the ideas, inspiration, and intuitions you receive

If I would have listened to everyone and what they were saying if I would’ve just followed the mold of what society tells you what’s acceptable and what creates you these pathways to colleges and universities and opportunities, I wouldn’t be talking to you. I probably would be saying like, ‘Hey Kim, do you want fries with that?’ because that’s what my guidance counselor told me.”

Top Tips from Kim and Felecia

  • Give yourself permission to chase after the things you’re passionate about.
  • If you can’t be number one or two in a niche, build your own niche.
  • When you see an answer to a social problem and can’t answer the question “if not me, who else can do this?” – that’s your moment of obligation to bring that solution to fruition.
