About this course

A couple of years ago I came across the US General Social Survey.  It is like the census but rather than statistical data, it covers our attitudes, beliefs and opinions.  On that survey there was a question about happiness. 

So we have the data to back up that women are less happy today than they were back in 1972!  

I was shocked that no one was talking about this!  It made me sad and yet at the same time, I wasn’t surprised.   As women we have made so many advances, yet we’re not happier.  Women are never astonished when I share this statistic.  They’re usually quiet for a moment, and then they go, “Yeah, I can see that.” 

I find this tragic and I am starting a HAPPY REVOLUTION to change it!

The HAPPY REVOLUTION is for women who are ready to go against the grain and eschew the traditional path we’ve been told will make us happy – a house in the right neighborhood, an attractive & successful partner, 2.5 kids, a size 6 body, and vacations on the beach.   

This course is for women who are willing to stop buying into the messages we’re being bombarded with through movies, magazines and social media, who are ready to quit listening to what the women at book club say or your Aunt Betty tells you -  and ARE READY and WILLING to  GO DEEP, GO INSIDE and craft a life that is by your own DESIGN and that makes YOU HAPPY.   

If you love keeping up with the Jones’s, have the perfect body, are never exhausted or stressed by others’ demands, you love social media, have all the time you desire with your friends and have more money than you can spend – THIS REVOLUTION IS NOT FOR YOU!

Happy Revolution is to for all women, everywhere who are ready to LEAD THEIR OWN PERSONAL JOURNEY to uncover the areas of their lives that are keeping them stuck and transform those areas so they can be truly, genuinely happy. 

I’m not promising it will always feel good.  I’m not saying you won’t be scared.  But I am telling you – IT WILL BE WORTH IT!

In this HAPPY REVOLUTION, you are going to take a real, honest look at certain areas of your life, and you will make changes to your thoughts, habits and actions in those areas, so your life is not one that’s been fed to you by the media or suggested to you by people who love you and are well intentioned,  but it’s a LIFE OF YOUR DESIGN - a life that makes you truly, genuinely HAPPY. 

Two years ago I started down the path of discovering what is making us unhappy today that we didn’t have to deal with 50 years ago, back in 1972.  I’ve come up with 7 areas that I believe are hurting our happiness:

BODY IMAGE:  We are at war with our bodies.  So many women HATE their bodies.  So much of our energy goes into trying to look a certain way – which isn’t even real.  Most of the images we’re exposed to have been filtered and photo shopped and truly are FAKE NEWS!

We’re going to learn to LOVE, and I mean genuinely LOVE our bodies – REGARDLESS OF SIZE! 

TIME:  We’re too busy.  We still do the majority of child rearing and house keeping, yet most of us also now work.  We go go go.  We do do do – for everyone else. 

We’re going to get crystal clear on what our priorities are, what is ours to do – and what we NEED TO GIVE UP!  

PARENTING:  We are letting our kids suck the life out of us.  Our parents had a totally different perspective on parenting – their job wasn’t to protect you from every hurt, get involved in your friendships and your school work and to know where you were at every minute!

We’re going to look at a different way of parenting so your focus is not on your kids – YOUR FOCUS IS ON HOW YOU CAN BE A STRONG, HAPPY WOMAN AND MODEL THAT FOR YOUR CHILDREN.

HEALTH:  We’re sick and tired (or drunk and hungover!)  The new face of an alcoholic is a professional, educated woman over 50!  We’ve put everyone and everything in front of our own health to the point that we are chronically exhausted and overwhelmed (even if you don’t drink)!

You’re going to take back your WELLNESS and set HEALTHY BOUNDARIES on what you need to do to regain your vitality and passion!

SOCIAL MEDIA:  We let social media determine how we feel about our own lives.  We are constantly COMPARING our own lives to the ideal others are putting out there.  We are wasting precious moments and harming our psyche with the myriad messages we absorb through these platforms.

We will do a SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX and re-introduce social media into our lives on our terms in a way that LIFTS US UP, and doesn’t make us doubt ourselves. 

GIRL TRIBE:  We’ve forgotten our true champions – our tribe – OUR GIRLFRIENDS!  As women friendships are as vital as air and water.  WE NEED THEM TO LIVE! This isn’t exaggeration, it’s a biological fact – we’ll get into the brain science of why friendships are NON-NEGOTIABLE as women.

We are going to re-prioritize GIRL TIME in our LIVES and safeguard that like it was a newborn baby!

MONEY:  We think money will fix all this.  We think it will make us happy.  IT WONT!  We’ll look at the real truth of how much money we need to be happy and how much damage the relentless pursuit of more can do.

We’re going to discern what we really need in our lives to BE HAPPY and we’ll SIMPLIFY, UNCOMPLICATE and DECLUTTER our lives so there is more space and energy for what fills us up! 

Every week we’ll do a deep dive in one of these areas.  It will include:

  • a lesson and supplemental materials
  • a video
  • activities and exercises  
  • a deep, restorative process to anchor your new reality into your body and being.

You’ll be given the opportunity to share and connect with the other REVOLUTIONARY WOMEN in the group!  If you choose, you’ll be given an ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER you can connect with on a deeper level and get into the nitty gritty of the content. 

Every other week, you’ll do a LIVE CLASS WITH ME – where there will be learning, discussions, Q & A, live coaching and SO MUCH MORE!   All live classes will be recorded and available to watch later if you are unable to attend. 

HAPPY REVOLUTION starts on May 18, 2020 and ends on July 8, 2020.

· Weekly Connection 

Each Monday for 8 weeks I’ll unlock a new module that will contain a lesson, some supplemental reading and/or videos, activities to complete and a powerful process for you to do on your own time.

· Live Q&A with Kim

Every two weeks during the program, you’ll have a 60-minute group session where I’ll answer your questions and give online coaching.  I ask you to submit your questions before the call and then even if you can’t make the call, you can still get your question answered.  If there’s extra time, we’ll take calls live on the phone.  All calls are recorded, so even if you can’t make the call, you can listen later.

Group Coaching Calls are 60 Minutes:

Tanesha Watts, Event Planner



Basically before this program, I was scattered in my to- do lists and didn’t even think about writing goals. No more distractions, no more getting off track. Basically, I am freed up to have way more time and energy to put into what I love to do. Thank you, Kim!    

Cindee Joslin, Business Owner and Yogi


Since working Kim’s program, I have made more changes in my life that have become proud accomplishments  of today. I carry Kim’s inspiration with me daily as it applies to my work, my kids, my family and most important “ME”!!! I am becoming a whole new person because of this program and I love it. Thank you Kim!

  Kari J. Larson, Entreprenuer


Kim’s program helped me with my confidence. It helped me improve my professional life. It helped me with my relationships with my family It also has given me the tools to use to realize when I’m slipping back into the old patterns. You can recognize that it’s coming. You can realize why and then you can implement the new behavior and the things that you learn from the program. It has provided me with the means to make the changes permanent. It was very powerful for me. It was unlike any other program or any other thing I’ve ever tried. It definitely empowered me.” 

Kelli Janowitz, Yoga Instructor


 “This has been the most incredible experience. I was ready for this. I was ready to make changes in my life. I didn’t know what turns this would take. I really had a little something different in mind. This is so much better than what I had in mind! I’m the most happy and fulfilled place that I’ve ever been!”

Elizabeth Dombeck, University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture
