Dear friend, it’s important you know and trust I will ALWAYS be honest with you…  EVEN when it means admitting the messy, ugly truths of my own entrepreneurial journey… And I have a lot of messy, ugly truths.

For example, I, Kim Sutton, know what it’s like to…

  • Be inauthentic in my business because I am more concerned with what others thought than being true to myself
  • Focus on quantity instead of quality, offering services because I want money, NOT because I enjoy doing them;
  • Miss important family moments because I “need” one more minute to work;
  • Work 20 hour days, 7 days a week to find my bank account empty and my mental and physical health suffering;
  • Jump from one idea to the next never finishing a project and thus never making money from my ideas;
  • Fall victim to Shiny Object Syndrome, buying courses, products and programs thinking they will success;

I, Kim Sutton, also know how to recover from the above pains. I know because I have personally experienced them!

I know the true cost of letting the expectations of others control our lives, and I don’t want to see you fall victim to the same negative side-effects of entrepreneurship I did.

So… Do you want to continue being a slave to unsatisfying expectations? Or are you ready to create joy and money pursuing your passion?

I’m committed to empowering you with the systems and strategies you need to help you embrace your true calling WITHOUT sacrificing revenue, your health, or time with loved ones.

I invite you to join me on the Work Smarter, Not Harder journey. Subscribe to the podcast, join the community and get ready to see your business and personal life change for the better. I wish you all my best, dear friend, and I can’t wait to see you soar while building a business that’s authentically YOU.

Navigating Silence

Navigating Silence

As one prone to overthinking and rumination, I am navigating silence, or a lacktherof, in an effort to heal and find peace in my new life.

Discovering Myself

Discovering Myself

Just shy of nine months divorced, I’m on a journey of discovering myself and finally being honest with myself and others.

Seeking Validation

Seeking Validation

It’s time to stop seeking validation from external sources and start looking within ourselves. Kim shares how she has started her journey.




Are you sick of wearing a mask in your business, avoiding authenticity and your true calling for fear of missing out on opportunites and/or income?

And are you tired of being a broke, broken and burnt-out entrepreneur, longing to love each work day while also having more time for the people and activities you love?

If so, you can’t afford to miss this FREE challenge…

2024 has been a journey in putting my foot down and standing up for myself. I`ve had enough of this year if I`m honest.⁠

I filed for a protection order for my kids and I a couple weeks ago and the request was granted. Without going into details, I was experiencing threats and harassment nobody should experience. NOBODY should ever receive messages like I was receiving.⁠

These messages came on the tail of me shutting down another relationship. (The relationship and the protection order are not connected). The relationship was shut down because I expressed I had been hurt and, instead of having a conversation or apologizing, I was further hurt and dismissed.⁠

2024 has helped me see how I have settled for far less than I deserved. It`s shown me the harsh realities of trauma bonding and codependency, and the disturbing nature of narcissists. And it`s shown me the (type of) people I want to surround myself with.⁠

I got my nose pierced for my birthday.⁠

I realized I`ve spent 45 years worrying about other people`s opinions of me and crafting my life to suit them rather than living my life for God and me.⁠

So I took a step, straight into a piercing and tattoo parlor. ⁠
I`ll be going back in a few months to get a sleeve honoring God and the life He has blessed me with.

This morning I asked my best friend where the fast forward button to 2025 is. 2024 hasn`t been easy, and I wish for nothing more than to be swallowed up into a warm hug of unquestionable comfort and psychological safety.⁠

I`ve been told hurtful things this year I can`t imagine ever saying to anyone, and in the past two weeks alone I`ve been attacked by words which made my stomach turn and me fear for me life and the lives of my children. Yes, I`m handling it. No, I won`t share any details. ⁠

Friends, please be an agent of love, comfort and peace for those around you. Despite their smiles and the way they continue pushing forward, you may not have any clue what someone is dealing with behind closed doors. I can tell you, however, that a REAL hug would mean the world to me right about now, and I`m sure many other people could use a hug as well.

The past couple years have taught me a tremendous bit about who I am, who I want to be and who I want to surround myself with. ⁠

It`s taught me that even when my bank account is empty, I can still contribute immensely to other peoples` lives by making them feel seen, heard and appreciated. ⁠

It`s reminded me that I am tremendously smart, and my skills can help others, personally and professionally.⁠

And it`s taught me that I don`t want to fill my life with people who give me material objects. I want to fill my life with people who fill my heart with happiness, and I want to do the same for others.⁠

Please, Lord, fill my life with people who make me feel seen and appreciated. Fill my life with people who are eager to bring smiles to the faces of others, not to see what they can get from others. And help me to contribute happiness and peace to the lives of others.

Much needed self-care and healing time yesterday made it clear that, despite a few people not being in my life anymore, they are occupying a lot of mental space rent-free.⁠

I wish I could snap my fingers and have them out of my brain immediately.⁠

No, that`s not the truth.⁠

There`s this piece of me that still hopes for reconciliation from one of them, a part of me that hopes what I`ve experienced was the result of stress in his life and not an actual representation of who he is. I want an apology for the hurts I experienced and an opportunity to show each other the best of who we are. ⁠

But I realize...⁠
😢 Reconciliation doesn`t always happen. My divorce proved that; ⁠
💭 Despite consistent, constant, evidence proving otherwise, I wanted to believe he was good and truly cared about me (as he said he did);⁠
❓ When reconciliation doesn`t happen, closure isn`t guaranteed. I may be left with questions.⁠

Questions and lack of reconciliation or closure don`t mean I need to allow people, especially toxic people, to remain in my mind rent-free. ⁠

I don`t know how exactly I`m going to do it, but I am working to bring my thoughts back to me, elevated, happy, and focused on people and opportunities who are happy to expend as much energy into me as I do into them.⁠
