I’m Kim Kaupe

I’m an accidental entrepreneur, educator, podcaster, speaker, chocolate chip cookie touting BFF who pushes you at work to win at work. 

Pull up a chair, grab something caffeinated & get ready to start planning. First stop, your dream life. Second stop, Hogwarts.

In January 2020 at age 34 I kicked off a tour with Oprah while juggling clients like Paul McCartney, The NY Mets, Ace Comic Con & Shawn Mendes. 

In those 9 years I learned how to go from zero clients to Oprah, no one knowing who I was to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list and not knowing what an LLC was to securing offers from 4 out of 5 sharks on Shark Tank. 

Now, I’m opening my playbook to show others exactly how I did it. That little voice that tells you that you’re made for something more…I’m giving it a megaphone. 

I work with executives & future leaders to harness their voice & image to expand their network. I dust off the ordinary to reveal the extraordinary in my clients whose perceived value in the workplace does not match the actual value they bring to the table. By showing others how to showcase their strengths we’re building an army of leaders who are ready to take center stage.

In January 2011 at age 25 I googled, “How to start a company”

(even if it's not what's best for you!)

I believe in...

sharing the last cookie

doing what's best for others

I don’t just talk the talk,
I walk the walk.
