Meet Kimberlee

Kimberlee Jo Buckingham

Girlfriend, you have found a kindred spirit.

My passion is to inspire, lead, motivate and coach women to achieve abundance in all areas of our life, personally, professionally, emotionally, physically and spiritually with some hard lessons, some tough advice and strong support of friendship and love. 

My life’s purpose is to  "lead with grace".

I struggle with the same issues most women struggle with. Sometimes I feel like I don’t matter, like I am not good enough and who cares. Of course, like you, I know that I am loved and that I am needed and wanted by my family and those who are close to me. But sometimes…I don’t “feel” it. Especially today with all of the media and the magazines that showcase the most “accomplished” women.

They came from nothing and are now running multi-gazillion dollar businesses out of their kitchens. Or they lost 100 pounds in 6 months with no help. Or they met the love of their life while climbing a mountain in South America. If you are one of “those”, then this book is not for you.
I am normal. Actually more normal than I like to admit. I worry if that last piece of chocolate cake will show up in my panty lines in my good black pants while I give my presentation tomorrow. I fight with my Mom about my kids. I tell her they are doing great, while I hope they really are. I check my bank balance before making a purchase. I pretend like my husband is totally supportive of my new business, when he would prefer that I would get a “real” job, with a real paycheck and just be happy with myself. 

If any of this sounds like you…well, girlfriend, you have found a kindred spirit.

I keep trying to “fit in” and just be, but I have this little “thing” on the inside of me. I take my hands and roll them in circles in front of my chest to describe how this little spirit on the inside of me keeps spinning on a hamster wheel. It keeps saying, Kimberlee, you need to share your story…..so many women need to hear this……maybe you can help them, maybe they can help you…..maybe you can all change each other’s lives.

When it comes down to what do I (and perhaps “we”) really care about:

I want to matter. I want to make a difference and at the end of the day, feel like I did something or stood for something that made the world a better place.

I want to love and to be loved. I want a lasting relationship where I can be myself and be loved no matter what. I want to love with abandon, just be who I am and love authentically.

I want to have financial security. The definition of what financial security varies but for me, I want to know that I can provide for my family and my loved one.

Yet, so many of us, including me, worry about doing all of this perfectly.

I have created this story line complete with pictures, feelings and sounds of what my life should be like. Like, I wake up every morning and I can feel my hip bones, sound familiar, my loved one is sleeping soundly with no worries, I have an amazing day ahead of me where I wear the perfect outfits for the perfect workout and perfect meetings……yeah, I can go on….I know it’s sick.

Who am I kidding……do I know anyone who is perfect and happy? Or perfectly happy?  

That is why I decided to be smart because I know I can be smart and happy. I can live a life where I make a difference, I can be loved, I can have financial security and when it is all said and done I will know I mattered.

So to satisfy that little spinning spirit racing away on the hamster wheel inside my chest, I have developed a program based on my SMART methodology to share with you how I decided to live SMART.

I am a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend and a business woman. I have achieved significant success in career selling for IBM, SAP and Oracle. I have a degree from the University of California, Berkeley and an MBA from the University of Oregon. I have two amazing grown children and a 28 year marriage. I am the proud mom of two coton-de-tulears, Bentley and Bailey.

I want to leave a legacy to make a lasting positive influence in women's lives. Many times, I am unsure of myself, scared, sad and pissed off. I am so real. I will share my successes and dismal failures. My mission is to share my strategies so that you may achieve your own definition of success with your relationships, your business and your health.
