We had the good fortune of connecting with Kimberly Burke and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kimberly , is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
My creativity and my authenticity. I am unapologetically myself and in an Instagram world where perfection is what you see from most bloggers/brands. I don’t don’t do that. I stick to my own lane and what makes my brand unique. My audience appreciates the honesty and realness.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a Fashion/Lifestyle/Health Influencer. My blog is a place for readers to feel inspired, to laugh and find out about all the new beauty and lifestyle hacks. I also love to share affordable fashion that is easy to style! I model for a few boutiques in Phoenix which allows me to be up to date with all of the new Fashion trends to share with my readers. What sets me apart is that I don’t want to do be just like everyone else. I share things that I enjoy and find useful. I also share a lot about a healthy lifestyle. I had chronic health issues so I can relate to some of my audience that’s been through the similar experiences and how to navigate through a healthier lifestyle which is manageable and convenient. I’ve learned SO MANY lessons, the first of which is to not be afraid to fail. I fail or make mistakes all of the time. Too many people are too afraid to make a mistake so they never try. Learning to prioritize more important work instead of all the little things I have to do has been hard for me.
