“Kim, you have done a masterful job with your training materials. 

I was going to get this stuff earlier and probably should have so I could be a little further ahead. But now, I’m going to make up for some lost time in getting through your stuff as quickly as I can.  There is a lot of wisdom in your training and I’m lapping it up like a thirsty dog! 

Even though I have experience with marketing and sales, your work here is custom made for coaching, cutting edge and up to date for the current state of the resources that are available for me to fully leverage and quickly grow a coaching business.  You are my guardian angel and I believe, heaven sent.  Thanks!”

“Working with Kim Avery was like having a best friend to talk to, but she also had
the Biblical wisdom and training to help guide me through some tough decision points in my life.  When I needed to “lighten up,” Kim was there with great understanding and support, and her genuine sense of humor and ability to laugh,  helped me work through some of the mountains I had created for myself. 

Kim didn’t give me the answers, but she was there to help motivate and support me to find them for myself and to move forward toward a more rewarding and fruitful life.”

Working with Kim Avery is not only beneficial it is pleasurable.  Kim kindly encourages her clients to discover themselves by looking at their whole selves–their interests, skills, passions, and values.  Once this has been accomplished, she helps them to see where the discovery can be harmonized with a career that is a joy to go to and best of all financially and personally rewarding. 

Kim “walks” with her clients each step of the way delivering them to their goal with proficiency and by instilling confidence.  Clients can’t help but feel confident by Kim’s kudos and reassurance.

“Kim, since this experience with you and this group I have had some major shifts in my view of myself as a coach and as a career woman.  Truly, they are paradigm shifts.

You prayed one time that we could provide $ for our families, and gave me “permission” after 24 years of being a stay at home mom, that it is OK and even Godly and Good, to make $. That is HUGE for me.  

I actually am embracing the idea that I am now a “career woman” with a business!!!!!!  AND….IT FEELS GOOD! :) I am a contributor. I am capable. I can do this.  Of course all with God’s grace and help! AND totally surrendering it all to HIM and His will.

I am actually feeling less and less afraid of having a successful business and being a successful coach. HUGE!!  I don’t feel PROUD, but I don’t feel scared like I did, either.  

I just feel more established and confident in my role as a Life Coach for wives and moms and women. It truly is a “glove like fit” for me. :)  AND I love doing it! I am so honored and rewarded and content. AND I WANT to do more!!

Finally, I am taking my business so much more seriously. I am really thinking about earning, marketing, advertising, ways to have touch points with my potential coachees. I am actually setting goals for my business, and looking for opportunities to speak, and starting a consistent blog. I am thinking about how I would structure a newsletter, to risk and put up a few videos of me sharing a life strategy on my website/blog/fb business page. Again, HUGE.

Being in coaching with you and this group, has done those things for me.  Thank you, God. (and Kim!)”

“I utilized Kim as my coach as I was training to become a coach.  We had several one-on-one sessions.  Kim’s style is very comfortable and effective.  We covered some deep topics in a relaxed but thorough manner.  I truly loved our sessions together and always looked forward to having Kim walk alongside me as I went through my certifications.  She encouraged me along the way and gave sound advice and resources for me to utilize.  I would not hesitate to hire Kim again.”
