Impact with Civia Caroline, Kimberley Day & Karen Laos

The October Theme is Impact. We kicked off the month with an impactful conversation on the topic with guests Music Industry Impact Coach Civia Caroline, Marketing Specialist Kimberley Day (Write & Grow Rich), and Communications and Confidence Champion Karen Laos.

At the beginning of every month, I bring together friends from different areas of my life to chat, check-in, and offer inspiration. This month’s guests agreed: Impact starts with you! It’s all about reaching and helping others, starting a ripple effect, and inspiring people to think and/or act differently!

Getting Starting with Making an Impact

  • Civia: Know your values, know where you stand, know your voice! Tell a friend something that feels a little outside your comfort zone.
  • Kim: Start from within. And take massive, imperfect action! Ready, fire, aim!
  • Karen: Figure out what you want and why that is. Give yourself permission to think big! Write your own eulogy. Start with the legacy you want to leave.
