Kimberlie Dykeman is one of those people you don’t soon forget. If her smile and laugh don’t get you first, her energy will. She is a woman on a mission. And her passion is overflowing, if not contagious. She has dedicated her life to being a motivator, entertainer and educator; and whether on-camera, on-air, on the field, or on paper, Kimberlie exudes a charismatic, vivacious presence that has fueled a loyal following and thousands of success stories. She has been lovingly described as “an espresso shot for the heart,” and labeled “a triple threat, delivering Wayne Dyer’s targeted yet malleable wisdom, Ellen DeGeneres’ contagious zeal and engaging delivery, and Oprah’s universal appeal and anticipated promise of betterment.”

So begins the ever so brief bio of Kimberlie Dykeman, who like her Soapbox vignettes that deliver a powerful punch in “a small, graceful literary sketch” (note this is actually the definition for vignette), leaves one comfortably overpowered and empowered by a raw energy that quite frankly is contagious.

Like the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words, hearing Kimberlie speak will tell you more than can be captured in mere words alone.

For this reason I am pleased to welcome Kimberlie to the April 23rd, 2010 segment of the PI Window on Business to talk about her book Pure Soapbox, and life from the motivational soapbox.
