Kim Barrett knows what it’s like to build something from the ground up.
He quit his cosy city job, with all its benefits and safety nets, to start his own business. It took him a year of working out of busted up tiny rooms and coffee shops, being literally days away from closing down, to start making a living.
Now he’s made a life.
He’ll never give you an excuse, he’s not afraid of sharing his journey, and he’s not afraid of telling it straight. Kim and I are made of the same stuff.
He came on the What Are You Made Of? podcast to share the story of how he went from selling Pokémon games as a kid to 6, 7, and 8 figure business deals as the founder and CEO of Your Social Voice.
