Meet the women who have built businesses around their kids’ schedules
If you’ve been part of my world for a while you’ll know that I had two small children and a husband that worked 10+ hours a day as a Fedex driver when I started my current business back in 2014.
Since then, I’ve mentored many other women as they’ve worked their way through my Be True, Brand You program, to start or grow their own online businesses while juggling motherhood at the same time.
In this post I want to highlight three women who have achieved so much since joining the program.
“After spending ten years at sea and five additional years as an assistant cruise ship recruiter, I knew I had the specialist knowledge and first-hand experience to serve anyone considering a life living and working at sea.
At the point I joined Be True, Brand You, I was working 9-5 as a teacher and desperately looking for a way to create my own flexible schedule so I could spend more time with my friend and family, and actually get to do more of the things I love to do like snowboarding.
While my job as a teacher was very rewarding and provided me with stability, I couldn’t help feeling constrained by it, and when my husband left for months at a time to lead mountain guided adventures, I had to stay behind.
Since enrolling in Be True, Brand You my whole life has been transformed.
I’ve left teaching full-time and now 100% of my income comes from helping other adventurous souls get paid to travel the world by landing their dream jobs on cruise ships.
Kimra has shown me how to position myself as an expert and create a personal brand that feels really aligned with who I am.
Best of all, I no longer have to work 9-5 – I can set my own schedule.
Last month, I spent a day driving the six-hour round trip to get to my son’s annual allergy specialist appointment. In the past, I would have worried about taking time off work to get him there… now I have my own online business, it’s all good! I just do what I need to do and I don’t have to ask anyone for permission. I even earned $600 in automated sales, without doing a single minute of work!
This summer when my husband left for the mountains Dax and I packed up and went too. Since I can run my business from anywhere, we can now be together as a family the whole year round.”

“Before Be True, Brand You, I had a local cleaning and organizing business. Although I was successful, the business wasn't scalable and forced me to be away from my kids all day. I was happy, but not excited by my business anymore and knew there was more that I could offer to the world.
I had been thinking about starting an online business for years but had no idea where to start or who to serve. When I heard Kimra on a widely known podcast, I instantly felt a connection with her and her brand. The day I listened to that episode happened to be just days before the doors to Be True, Brand You opened and I knew immediately that I had to join.
There isn’t enough space here to list everything that I learned from the course…I completely rebranded myself, found my niche and sweet spot, narrowed in on my ideal client, and learned how to write copy for the first time ever in business. I went from not even knowing what a webinar was to being able to set one up by myself in a day. I learned how to build and launch a course from scratch and most importantly, how to have the confidence to be myself and serve my audience from a place of complete service and love.
I simply can’t put a price tag on the value of membership to the community, or the fact that there were office hours every week for sixteen weeks, where Kimra answered every single question. Where else do you find that kind of dedication?
I’m launching my first Bootcamp this week and enjoy coaching clients one-to-one, something that nine months ago, I didn't even know existed. I have a growing Facebook group and was recently interviewed for an online summit. I have been approached to collaborate with others in my industry and I attribute almost all of that to what I learned in Be True, Brand You.
Whether you’re an aspiring or existing online business owner, you will not find a more comprehensive program that this. Kimra breaks down all the techie pieces and literally walks you step by step through everything you need to know. If you're ready to do the work, Be True, Brand You is the launch pad that you need to get you to where you want to go.”
Kendra Hennessy, Coach for Moms
“I was on maternity leave with a six-week old baby and a one-year-old toddler when I decided to join Be True, Brand You. I had no business to speak of and I was a complete and total online business newbie!
My only hesitations about joining the program were the time involved and the financial commitment. I was worried I wouldn't have time, especially with my babies. As it turns out, it was the best decision I could have ever made.
Now, I have two businesses and I’m totally blown away by what I've achieved. I grew the email list for my arts biz to over 2,000 in just a few months. I launched my first ever profitable online course. And I've grown confidence that has led to so many offers on the table.
It’s almost impossible to put into words what you get when you enroll in Be True, Brand You…membership to the community alone provides so much more than what’s written in the course description.
If you’re on the fence, I say jump! Do it! I was scared shitless at first, but I took a risk and it turned out to be the best thing ever. I’m not exaggerating when I say Be True, Brand You has completely changed my life. I now have so many ways to make money and it feels amazing!”
Michelle Lloyd, Artist & Coach for Visual Artists
“I was totally unaware of the potential financial benefit to having an online program until I met Kimra. When I started Be True, Brand You I was a personal growth consultant with no online presence and no clue about how to create one. If I’m honest, I was hiding because I didn’t know about how to get my message out there online.
Knowing what I know now, I’d have paid double or triple the cost of my investment based on the impact Be True, Brand You has had on my business and personal life.
With a teenager and two small children I wasn’t sure whether I’d be able to keep up with the program and really be able to achieve all the things Kimra said I’d be able to achieve by the end.
But with a little bit of juggling and a lot of encouragement from Kimra during office hours, I was able to complete the program and now I feel totally confident creating my online programs, building and designing my website myself.
If you are committed and willing to put everything you learn into action, your business will change and your whole life will change too.
Without a doubt, Be True, Brand You has transformed the entire scope and scale of my business. Kimra has created a real game-changer.”
