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.
Always Dream Big!

Stella has it right.
How do we get taken seriously about being sister-preneurs. This may sound kinda funny for some, however, for those of us who know what this is like with a significant other….it is not a laughing matter. We want to be taken seriously.
My husband, I love to death and have been with for 25 yrs… needs to be continually trained and educated on the principals of homemaker/entrepreneurism. I am sad to say that the topic of the current Sara Palin phenomenon that I do not understand; how can you be a mom and run the world?
Well we can! We just need to delegate well.
I will tell you that as a mother of FOUR boys, just last night I had to once again snap hubby back into the reality of mom-preneurism.
It was our fourth child’s birthday, I ran around all day gathering items for the birthday, plus clean house, and I took off work to be with them as mommy….
Then hubby gets off work, scott free from anything. At the end of the evening, me being tuckered out, asked hubby, who did -0- to help out with anything, complained when I asked him to rub my sore, tired feet……YIKES! (no matter how successful you are, or become, we all have the same problems, just on different days!)
Moral of the story….men will always see us, consciously or unconsciously, (depends on what PhD you ask)as the one who takes care of the home, kids, HIM, and oh yes your home office thing!
Girls….It is a matter of conditioning, reinforcement and firm commitment to ease/shift the home and kid responsibility to the family for help. Take care when doing this, do not cause tension, for that will ultimately cause more stress. Teach without them knowing they are being taught.
My solution…..first talk and make clear your requests….
Second….if not responding…..reiterate your needs…
Third…..start going to dinner by yourself and movies, giving the family time to fend for themselves….
If all else fails…STRIKE!
There has to be a balance of power and commitment for both sides, keep pressing until it is reached.
Always Dream Big!
