You get to meet one of my favorite people today! Kim Kaupe is a true wonder woman who has made her mark on stages worldwide as a keynote speaker and the mastermind behind Bright Ideas Only, a fan engagement agency with A-list clientele like Paul McCartney, Oprah, my personal favorite Taylor Swift, and the NY Mets, to name just a few. Not to mention her work has landed her offers from 4 out of 5 sharks on Shark Tank, a role as judge of the Miss USA pageant, and spots on coveted industry lists like Inc.’s 35 Under 35, Advertising Age’s 40 Under 40, and Forbes 30 Under 30.

An entrepreneur’s journey is definitely a rollercoaster, and I think there are few people who understand that more than today’s guest. We are joined on the show by Shelton Wilder, a serial entrepreneur who turned a failed business into founding one of the top luxury real estate teams in the LA area, the Shelton Wilder Group.
From living an affluent life as a young entrepreneur, to rebuilding from bankruptcy, to then pitching her clothing company on Shark Tank, and now killing it in the luxury real estate space, Shelton is a true testament to what you can accomplish when you keep your focus on the road in front of you, instead of looking in the rearview mirror. Keep listening to hear Shelton talk about what it was like to pitch to the sharks, the easy ways you can leverage video marketing to grow your business, and how to grieve letting go of something you’ve worked hard on to move onto something better.
