Landing the cover of Oxygen magazine, starting her own Canadian beauty pageant and coaching women around the world has taught Kimberly Castle one crucial lesson: consistency pays off.
She learned quickly that if she was consistent with her work outs and diet regime, the fitness results that she desired would come quickly. Using her newfound perspective, Kimberly took this life lesson to other aspects of her life. She realized that it didn’t take anybody particularly talented to attain this success, just somebody who was willing to put in the work.
Using this profound knowledge, Kimberly decided it was time to help other women make the same realization.
Coaching women around the world between ages 25-50 years old, Kimberly’s focus is set on shattering her clients body shaming habits and opening their eyes to their beauty, capabilities and strengths. She gracefully balances her coaching business, a full time job as Vice President of Global Technology at Metlife, Mrs. Canada Globe Pageant and her personal fitness.
Kimberly’s tips for creating a successful career:
Shortly after landing the Oxygen cover, Kimberly figured out that she would need to do much more work to climb the ladder to where she wanted to be.
Hard work beats talent.
Coming face to face with a jealous colleague, Kimberly was told that she was “nobody special.” The words resonated with her and her perspective shifted. Talent didn’t separate those who succeeded from those who failed, hard work was the driving force.
Seek opportunities, don’t wait for them to come to you.
Taking the wheel, she decided to write her own story. Kimberly reminded herself that she was good enough for career changing opportunities. Instead of believing that somebody else was more deserving, she started asking herself, “Why not me?”.
Keep your blinders on.
Kimberly purposefully focuses on her personal growth, career growth and opportunities and ignores all the outside noise from social media. Dropping her fears of being judged by peers, she has been able to continuously grow her businesses and excel as a Vice President and CEO.
