Kim Delmonico

Kim Delmonico is the founder of BEINFLUENCE – an agency whose sole aim is to help businesses grow and achieve their goals through the use of revolutionary social media strategies.

In an interview with Kim a couple of weeks ago, she shared some of the obstacles she faced on her journey to the top, how she overcame them, and some words of advice to anyone striving for success.

Here’s the conversation;

 

Who’s your most significant source of inspiration?

My biggest source of inspiration has to be the COO of Roc Nation, Desiree Perez. When I still worked as a cocktail waitress, Desiree was in charge of operations. 

She was a go-getter and made sure everything worked in perfect unison with the plans she put in place, and she did it in style! Today Desiree runs Runs Roc Nation.

 

What’s the one thing you’re proud of?

Well, It would have to be my resolve to starting my business and not giving up. I’m a lawyer, and going back to a steady paycheck would have been easy for me. But I did not.

When you own a business, you don’t have anyone to rely on but yourself. You’re the one who makes sure your business grows and succeeds.

 

What are the biggest obstacles you’ve faced so far?

I’ve faced a lot of obstacles, but I have to say the biggest was dealing with the uncertainty that comes from being a business owner.  

Some days you experience remarkable growth, and other days, you’re at rock bottom.  You have to realize that that’s how the business world operates, and if you’re really determined about succeeding, you will.

 

What words of advice would you give to someone who wants to succeed in life?

Advice to someone who wants to succeed in life? Find mentors, lots of them. Reach out to them and give them value. Once you provide enough value, they’ll be glad to help you out on your journey.

I wouldn’t be here today without the mentors who have guided me throughout my journey.

Another thing I would recommend you do is to maintain an optimistic outlook on life. Have a positive mindset. This is one of the unique traits that most successful people possess.

 

What’s your favorite quote?

Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.”– Rumi
