Kim was a Toronto Police Officer for 30 years, retiring as a Staff Sgt. She went back to school as an adult and achieved her Masters in Leadership. She retired slightly early so she can pursue her dream of entrepreneurship. Kim also worked side hustles until she came upon a water ionizer that changed her life. Kim’s mental and physical health improved tremendously as a result of drinking this water and now she wants to share it with the world. Kim’s passion lies with giving service and helping people. She has written in an inspirational book due to be published in June and is extending her portfolio with possibly a coaching course in the near future.
Where did the idea for Crazy Water Girls come from?
I originally decided to endorse hydrogen rich water shortly after I started drinking it and learnt of it’s therapeutic benefits. I shared the water with my best friend and now business partner. I had loaned her a water ionizer, she noticed a health change in herself and her family and decided to get involved in the business. We are at that age where having fun is a priority and loving what you do. We are both Crazy for the water, so it was a name fitting to represent our passion in sharing the water with others so they can experience mental, physical and financial health like we did. Both of us decided to leave our current jobs early and go after our dream of being our own boss, while helping people and living our best life!
What does your typical day look like and how do you make it productive?
I get up by 9am, I shower, brush my teeth and go to my office. I spend all day and evening in my office. I divide the time into training, follow ups, new leads, booking appointments, working with business partners on endeverors. I ensure that I am productive and will aim to stop around 9pm where then I will allow myself to watch TV before going to bed. I’m aware of all the time I had wasted in the past, getting ready to do this and that or making plans that I never followed through in.
I took a coaching course in November, and then I took it again to learn at a deeper level. Coach Noel Walrond taught me to be accountable for the 168 hrs in a week by utilizing a calendar and scheduling your daily activate to follow. He also helped me to beat procrastination.
How do you bring ideas to life?
I act on them immediately. I will contact my business partner and run it by her or send out a text or email to everyone involved. I make them happen, move forward, put it into action.
What’s one trend that excites you?
On line businesses running themselves! The true opportunity for financial freedom so you can extend your dreams. I am involved in an online program where my sales and closing are done for me. It’s incredible. You can use the program for any online business or product you have!
What is one habit of yours that makes you more productive as an entrepreneur?
I don’t just look at my to do list and pick the ‘pleasurable’ things to do, avoiding the ‘painful’ things, I will do the list in order of priority, regardless of the pain it may cause me or how much I don’t like it.
What advice would you give your younger self?
Follow your dreams, believe in yourself, don’t listen to what others say or think you should do.
Tell us something that’s true that almost nobody agrees with you on.
Network marketing is a real thing and creates millionaires who then go on to do great things with the money earned for people.
As an entrepreneur, what is the one thing you do over and over and recommend everyone else do?
I never give up. I will continue to call, email, voice message or text a lead until the tell me absolutely no. I am persistent and it has led to much success. My motivation is the knowledge that I am doing a dis service to people if I do not get to tell them about the water.
What is one strategy that has helped you grow your business?
I just talk to people one by one and share the water, whether it be to deliver it to their house for 21 days or I can loan them a water ionizer for 21 days if available. I deliver 2 bags of 4-5 litres every second day to a home for 1 person doing a 21 day water challenge. The person drinking the water gets presented with a water share form that describes what is required of them, which a to drink half their body weight in the water and to eliminate all other acidic drinks during the trial. The form alerts them of the possible detox effect they will experience during the trial. This will depend on how acidic their bodies are to start off with and how much rebalancing is required to bring the body to homeostateous. People will experience the therapeutic effects of drinking Molecular hydrogen water and will become more educated over this the 3 weeks with emails from me about the water related to what their pain is. After the 3 weeks, families or individuals purchase the water ionizer for their families and then tell their friends and families about it.
What is one failure you had as an entrepreneur, and how did you overcome it?
I had tried many side hustles and they all required minimal monthly purchases and the pressures of an upline. None of them lasted or gave me the compensation plan that satisfied my want to leverage my time. I overcame this by finding a high converting product with an excellent lucrative compensation plan and went all in! My failures in the past were choosing the wrong companies and not committing to being successful.
What is one business idea that you’re willing to give away to our readers?
Virtual assistant! This is genius. You can work from home, its all administrative, no sales, just booking appointments, work your own hours. I can use one!!
What is the best $100 you recently spent? What and why?
Personally the best $100 was spent on personal coaching with Noel Walrond for me. It was money I spend on my mindset. It was amazing and has accelerated my life dreams by giving me clarity and focus in regards to my goals and where I want to be in the future without fear. I took the course a second time to solidify my lessons and really train myself to live and think a different way permanently. I made the best investment ever, on me. It led me to want more personal coaching to grow as a person.
What is one piece of software or a web service that helps you be productive?
ZOOM! Before COVID it was difficult to get people to watch a webinar or attend a live demo or commit to on line meetings. COVID has normalized Zoom meetings and it is just a normal think now to request a zoom meeting and have people watch on line videos. Zoom allowed me to network, join BNI’s, interest groups, learn on line, take coaching courses and do twice as much as there is no travelling time.
What is the one book that you recommend our community should read and why?
Empowering Women to Succeed Series. This is a best selling series with various authors sharing their inspiring personal or business stories. I choose this one as I am going to be a published author in the upcoming book being released in June. I have read the previous books and found that I could relate to every story in one way or another. All the writers are strong individuals who gave me the push to write about my struggles I have overcome. I found the process very therapeutic and I know that I will help someone who reads my story know that they too can overcome the demons and move forward.
