Kim Minert was diagnosed with insulin dependent diabetes at the age of 44. With her entrepreneurial mindset, Kim’s mission is to teach others how to manage their diabetes and to give them hope, to know they are not doomed.
“In the end people are persuaded not by what we say, but by what they understand” by John Maxwell
Second guessing my mission. I started writing a book about diabetes 5 years ago, and got distracted with speaking, Toastmasters and National Speakers Association. Filled my plate to overflowing a common practice among entrepreneurs. We have so many ideas! Maybe it wasn’t a failure, just a delay?
Changed the topic to my second love, networking. Connecting people to people and people to ideas is what I do unconsciously. Wrote around that topic for a year.
Meeting Dr. Hilts was the Ah Ha Moment. Now I have a story AND a message. Something that REALLY helps people.
I now combine my story with tools that can liberate diabetics almost immediately! The current business is marketing the book, Your New BFF: Burn Fat for Fuel, Lose Weight, and Beat Diabetes. The book combines my story and the stories of many others, the science behind our message, and an easy how-to guide complete with recipes.
Where did the title come from? I was speaking to my Toastmasters Club (plug Park Central Toastmasters) and when I pulled a 2 pound package of Amish Butter out of my basket and said, “This is my new BFF” there were roars of laughter. My husband said, “Burn Fat for Fuel!” The rest is history.
Speaking to folks, whether it’s one or one thousand, to set them free into a world of healthy living is my passion, along with providing tools that make a lifestyle change not only possible, but practical and positive! Coaching one on one. (Have a current diabetic client who has to lower his blood sugar drastically so he can have a pet scan and begin cancer treatment. After one session and a trip to the grocery store he is doing amazing!)
Coming up: Speaking to Ping Golf Employees as part of their wellness program and to 200 members on a Low Carb Cruise in the Caribbean, both in May.
Next two books, BFF for kids (US highest percentage of childhood obesity) and Trucking Low Carb, Your BFF on the road!
