Notes from Kim Flynn's Power to Become Speech

   Kim Flynn was the first alumni that addressed us. Her website describes her as the following quote: "Kim Flynn is passionate about playing big in business. She is a bestselling author, speaker, trainer, and workshop leader for entrepreneurs and small business owners. She has four kids, is the founder of five businesses, and the creator of the Plug & Play Business System. Kim teaches business owners how to automate, systematize, and grow their businesses to their potential.
After several years as a school teacher, Kim started her first tutoring business when she was 23 years old. She grew that business to employ over 30 people while working 3 hours per week. She went on to build and sell three more service businesses before creating Kim Flynn Consulting.
Kim now hosts monthly Business Intensive Retreats at her lodge in Park City, where women and a few brave men fly in from across the country to learn the Plug & Play Business System and overhaul their systems and operations in three intense days. Kim is a frequent guest on national radio and TV programs outlets like Fox Business News, and Forbes, and was recognized in the Top 40 under 40 in Business Q Magazine."
The following are my notes on her speech: Don't let anyone tell you this. You are out of alignment. Mothers can't do big things. Will I be sacrificing my family, if I do big things? I can do whatever I want to do because I see you do whatever you want. - her daughter, the most rewarding part of her career
We don't have to follow the mold. You are not sacrificing your family, being a businesswoman. You are blessing your family. The mold is education, get married, have children, grandchildren, & die. It is not the calling and purpose of women.  Don't let the box limit you. It is okay to rock the boat. Your family and friends will still love you. You don't have to figure out your life. Just move forward. Look at the threads in your life for purpose. We've dreams to achieve, but we don't. Giants, fighting against us, aren't physical or financial limits. They're social pressures. Playing it safe is a lack of faith.
