Who Needs Money?
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!

Like all of us……
I like to pass on information that can help entrepreneurs. I found this site that gives great resources on business funding. Check out www.netpreneur.org and look under the funding section. From angels to VC’s, it’s all here.
Funding is that ugly word most entrepreneurs do not want to hear, or have to deal with. We are all in the same boat, just in different oceans at different times. You must commit to having to do it, and it will come easier than you expect.
Another good resource from the SBA for a technology company looking for dollars for R&D and growth is the SBIR Program (Small Business Innovation Research) grant money. You can go to www.sba.govweb and type in SBIR to pull it up……
If anyone has their own funding tips, secrets or resources, I would love it if you would share with us. It is always great to pay it forward……….
Always Dream BIG!
