Kim Babjak



Kim Babjak was born to be an entrepreneur. From her childhood days of developing products, Kim has loved all aspects of business. However, the area that brings her the most joy is helping others achieve success. Armed with her dream of taking to market products she had been developing for years, Kim took a chance at becoming financially and emotionally free by starting and running her own business.

She wanted to create a company that would give her the flexibility to work around her children and family, give her the freedom to make her own decisions, and help other entrepreneur's achieve the type of success she had.

"I want to make people's lives easier, and that is just what I am doing" said Kim.

Along the way, Kim encountered many obstacles, and through her perseverance, is now the owner of a highly successful company whose consumer products sold on QVC America, QVC UK, Wal-Mart, Walgreen's and large catalogs internationally.

Kim is thrilled to take the experience and knowledge she has gained from starting and running her business, and now share it with others. Kim provides guidance and resources in the areas of product development, offshore manufacturing, importing and QVC consulting.

This highly energetic and personable entrepreneur is helping create the "American Dream, one Dreamer at a time!"Since launching her company in 1998, Kim Babjak of KimCo LLC, has been living her "American Dream" of success. While wearing many hats like mother, entrepreneur, business woman, author, speaker and QVC agent, Kim has designed and taken to market many of the consumer products she has designed over the years.

Her struggles and hurdles in the process have compelled her to develop a unique consulting program that helps entrepreneurs with finding, then living their own "American Dream." KimCo's new venture helps entrepreneurs get their products seen by millions on QVC or HSN, idea to paper product development, product prototyping and overseas manufacturing.

Kim's four reason why she works so hard !

""

While you would expect to drive down the street and see a hospital or urgent care facility in your own neighborhood; would you expect to see a medi-clinic in your local Wal-Mart?  Mass retailers like Wal-Mart and CVS drug stores have been in the medi-clinic business? Move over Mc Donald’s!

Why not? In this economy, a Wal-Mart medi-clinic cost is a fraction of the cost of an urgent care facility, ever better yet, an ER visit! The big boys are trying to build a model of “if you build it, and they have cash, they will come!”

You have to think:

  • Does it promote big businesses’ go into the health care business?
  • Do they belong there?
  • Will this help facilitate the push for reformed, controlled health care for the US, or will it be promoting something that just should not be happening; Wal-Mart taking care of sick people? My opinion, if the Doctors are like the sales associates; I may be reluctant.
  • Where does this thing go from here?
  • Where does this put our “choices” of future health care?
  • What is next, Mc Donald’s offering a dental check when you pick up your fries? 

I would love to hear your insights.

Good, bad or indifferent, the vision has been a little depressed lately by the numbers of actual clinics that have been closed or scheduled to not OPEN at all. Both retailers have had a “slow road to a sustainable platform” with this one.

Food for thought: even the big guys make mistakes in opening up “other” revenue streams. Even more evidence that doing due diligence when looking to capitalize on a certain business model needs through planning, proper expansion, vision and a plentiful, willing to pay customer base.
