How to make money….when you’re not busy!
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!

Boy, it sure does sound like that is a silly thing to say? How do you make money when you do not have work? Well, it isn’t easy…but you can do it. My husband lost his job two months ago, after 25 years in aerospace…..now who has issues? He is OK though because:
1) He is married to me (his name is Mr. Kim) He! He! He!
2) He needed time off
3) He can paint a house if he needs to……
It just takes a little ingenuity…creative juices…and some old fashioned get up from your duff and go find it.
Most people say now is not the time to start a business…bull hockey! Now is the best time to start a business.
1) Costs for everything is lower (printing for business cards, manufacturing, gas etc)
2) People need your work!!!
3) Scared customers need security, assurance. Be that safety blanket
4) Barter…Barter…Barter…Till you drop
Now, just start the right business. Find the gap in a service and make it yours, own it and be the best. Now more than ever people are looking for good customer service, I see a hugh hole there! Fill it with a service…..get the point?
I was in China last week, and let me tell you, I witnessed many of my factories tapping into areas of manufacturing that they typically do not do; just to get the business. I have even had to morph myself to fit better into this economy. Example: I will take work that I would have turned down last year. Why? Because I do not want, and will not become, a failed business statistic.
Do not cry about this slumping economy. Take advantage of it, optimize your skills to help some business survive, and prosper yourself……
Only the STRONG survives now!
