Kim Appelt: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

A mother

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

A giver of good energy

Why do you do what you do?

I love making people feel good, beautiful and changing their self image

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I always loved dressing people, I have done it since I was young.  My friends would come over and I would re-do their outfits and makeup. I started as a model and years later a series of events led me behind the scenes launching brands.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

The toughest thing was putting myself out there. I am actually a private person but in this industry you can’t be. It’s part of my job to post pics of my favorite things, what I am wearing and my favorite places to eat, stay paly etc ;) My followers helped me, they give me positive feedback everyday and now I am excited to share all my daily finds!

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Actually I am inspired by all the power women out there in leadership positions that are driving, leading and showing our little girls that they can do whatever they want.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I haven’t made any major ones right now.  I did learn at the daytime Emmys however that I didn’t know how to tie a bowtie as well as I thought.  Note to file..when you have a client in a bow tie you better know how to tie it.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

It’s awards season so I am busy with getting ready for clients on the red carpet, I have a new client with her own tv show so I am dressing her for the show. My plans are to be organized and have everyone looking high functioning!

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Be nice. Be humble.  Always give more than you take, and treat everyone with respect.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Last words.  If you want it, go do it.  Success is never owned it is rented and rent is due everyday.
