Women are more likely than men to start businesses which benefit society and the environment versus purely economic ventures. However, 60% of women with a business idea don’t pursue it because they don’t believe they have the right skills to be a business owner or the confidence. This is all according to Kim Sprague, who believes hugely in women-led businesses and is passionate about supporting them. Flamingo Life is Kim’s purpose driven coaching business aimed specifically at women who want to make a difference. There is also a podcast – Her Balanced Business – that supports it. After making it to the top in her field in PR/Communications, Kim found it didn’t make her as happy as she thought. “If you ask a lot of people if they would like to do something else, you’ll be surprised at the number of people who say yes”, says Kim. A near fatal labour experience and a detour via a yoga practice made Kim realise she wanted to make an impact but needed to balance this with income. “It comes down to balancing impact and income”. Find out Kim’s goal setting tips and more for women who want to make money they deserve for doing good in the world. Plenty for men to learn here too!
