Founder, Faith & Focus

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…

  • Miss important family moments because I “need” one more minute in front of my computer;
  • Work 20 hour days, 7 days a week yet still have a negative bank account balance;
  • Jump from one idea to the next never finishing a project and, thus, never making money from any of the projects;
  • Say “yes” to the wrong clients out of desparation to bring in money;
  • Fall victim to Shiny Object Syndrome, buying courses, products and programs because I thought they were the solution to all my business’ problems;
  • Become ill, physically and mentally, due to working too much;
  • Post non-stop to social media, my blog and my podcast with $0 revenue

I, Kim Sutton, also know how to recover from all of the above pains. I know because I have personally done it.

I know the true cost of letting our businesses control our lives, and I don’t want to see you fall victim to the negative side-effects of entrepreneurship I did. I’m committed to empowering you with the systems and strategies you need to help you get away from your business and back to the people and activities you love WITHOUT sacrificing revenue.

So my question for you is… Do you want to continue being a slave to your business? Or are you ready for change?

I invite you to join me now on the Faith & Focus 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 the blessings in the world, dear friend, and I can’t wait to see you soar.

Journeying through my first year post-divorce, Scripture inspires me to be better instead of bitter, filling new wineskins rather than old.

I have never been so conscious of the people I feel pulled to connect with as I have since my divorce. Whether in my business or personal life, I admit I haven't had much tolerance for negativity and hopelessness. ⁠

For example, on January 2 I saw a connection publish a post which read, "364 days left." ⁠

I had to unfollow them.⁠

Dear friends, I know we all have points in our lives when we struggle. I go through moments of emotional struggle every day. I am happy to help friends going through rough patches, but I don't think it's okay to purposely drop your storm cloud on top of hundreds of other people if not thousands. I, as a Christian, and my brothers and sisters should be looking for hope in God and then sharing that hope with others. ⁠

Sharing hopelessness is letting the enemy win and then giving him the opportunity to infect the surrounding community. Do you really want to let him win?⁠

If you need help finding hope, spend some time considering the content you are ingesting whether it be blogs, podcasts, books, news, radio, music, etc. Is the content bringing you down or lifting you up? For the sake of your mental health, please make a conscious effort to fill your feed with positive and productive!

Warning: I'm not holding anything back here. These are topics which deserve to be discussed and I know I am not seeing them discussed enough. There may be triggers, however, so please read with discretion.⁠

This morning I sent a dear friend a text which said something along the lines of not enjoying singledom in the 21st century and in my 40s. To be honest, being a Christian, while making my life far better, makes being single and dating soooo much more difficult due to my commitment to living in the Word.⁠

I enjoy sex. A lot. I miss it. But I don't want to have sex until I find the right person again. I thought I had my right person for life and he abused and left me. I'm not going to rush into sex now just to have momentary pleasure and then be left because there was no attachment to/with the person. My heart already hurts. I don't need to be ashamed of my behavior because I've put out to temporarily fill emptiness.⁠

Besides sex, alcohol is a temptation. Tomorrow I will celebrate 365 days sober. When asked if I want to go for drinks, I am honestly saying "no" because I am not drinking and I don't want to be tempted to be. I made it through my divorce without drinking, and I don't want to be tempted to break my streak and risk doing something I would regret later.⁠

But I'm tempted. While I've had longer periods pass between heartbroken meltdowns there are times I just want to numb the pain with alcohol. But I can't. I won't. It won't make me feel better forever, and I know I'll regret breaking the progress I made with a sip.⁠

I know my marriage is over and I know God has something in store for me. But I wish so much that being single didn't have to mean people playing with my emotions, going hot and cold with communication and wouldn't immediately turn away when they find out I'm sober and saving it. Yes, I have five kids. Yes, I've been married. But don't assume I'm going to make decisions now based on what I've done in the past. I was one way and now I am different. Get to know me or don't. The choice is yours but my body isn't.

When you judge people by the half you see, you risk missing out on the depth of their mind and heart.⁠

When you only share what you think people want to know, you risk making a true connection.⁠

Money, appearance, social status and possessions last only as long as our time on earth - if even that long - but it's what's inside a person carries with them into eternity.

What numbers are you tracking in your business outside of social media followers and income? Or aren’t you?

Too many of my clients have no idea what the important numbers of their business look like. If you asked them what the open rate of their most recent email was they wouldn’t know, nor would they know the lifetime value of a client, the bounce rate of a landing page or the number of unique visitors to their site in the course of a month.

But would they know their latest gym stats or calorie count? In the first 14 days of the year the answer here is likely “yes”!

This year, make a commitment to knowing and consistently working on improving your numbers. This can’t happen without regular tracking, but WITH tracking and committed time for improvement, I can almost guarantee you will see your important numbers improve over time.

How has doing what you do for Him affected the way you do things? Share in the comments! 👇️⁠

The trajectory of my business changed completely when I realized I am working for Him and not for me. While I know we all have bills to pay and other financial obligations, I want to my desire to do more and do better come out of my love for Him rather than my desire for money and possessions.⁠

Our time here, on this earth and in our bodies, is limited to whatever time He gives us. Our life will continue into eternity depending on how we serve Him. ⁠

It's important to note, however, that we must be WILLING to serve, and not only doing it out of selfish desires to spend eternity with Him. For example, when we do a good deed, we must be just as satisfied if nobody knows about the good deed besides ourselves and the beneficiary. You know you're not willing when/if you don't want to do something if you're not going to be publicly acknowledged and/or celebrated.⁠

When I realized I am working for Him, my procrastination was nearly eliminated (Hey, I'm human and sometimes I don't want to XYZ). In addition, I became much more comfortable saying "no" to opportunities I knew I wouldn't be able to fulfill at my highest level.⁠
