Kimberlie Dykeman Introduces the SOAPBOX® In-Home Inspiration Party

  The SOAPBOX® In-Home Inspiration Party is a truly unique gathering started by Kimberlie Dykeman, TV Host, Motivational Speaker and Author of Pure Soapbox.  This past November, Kimberlie thought she was having just a much overdue, yet simple gathering at her house.  And since she is such a fan of famous quotes, she wanted to create an intimate event for some fabulous women to see what kind of connection and inspiration could ignite merely by tossing in her signature SOAPBOX® vignettes, bite-sized jolts of motivation wrapped around powerful quotes.  What happened was magical! Every woman that attended called or emailed that night or the next day saying, “I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE!!”  The response was so amazing that Kimberlie has chosen to keep the momentum going… and wants you to join in!  

 SO WHAT IS IT?     Well, this ain’t your grandmother’s Tupperware gathering or rerun networking event where you toss back wine and WHINE about work (or lack thereof!)  It stems from the SOAPBOX® brand, based on quotes…which are one of the most engaging and widely used forms of inspiration.  For millions, they create an experiential link to the past and cultivate hope for a brighter future.  From the book PURE SOAPBOX, to upcoming product lines, and an (eventual) talk show, Kimberlie leverages the power of profundity and timeless wisdom in famous quotes to promote living life to its fullest.  Because the SOAPBOX® message resonates with everyone, she believes this foundation for intimate home parties makes for a truly unique experience!  A party allows for a Host to bring brilliant women together to connect as businesswomen, moms and singles, and simply as strong human beings who have survived incredible life experiences.  It also allows for folks to make fabulous new friends, dump some old baggage, and take away fresh insights for both heart and mind. 

 On top of it, it allows Kimberlie to spread more awareness and garner more support for her chosen charity, LIVESTRONG™, which receives proceeds from all SOAPBOX® product sales.  And in turn, SOAPBOX® In-Home Inspiration Parties motivate both hosts and guests to get involved with local and global charities.  Net-net: a chance to get on one’s SOAPBOX and get inspired for what the future holds! 

HOST YOUR OWN!      Kimberlie Dykeman Enterprises is set to grow this grassroots idea virally throughout Austin and other cities!  Are you jazzed to share this experience with your own circles of friends and influence?  Then sign up to hold one at your own home!  As a Host, you’ll receive a SOAPBOX® In-Home Inspiration Party Starter Kit and our assistance in planning the evening.  And since the messages from Kimberlie’s book are central to the event, personally signed copies of PURE SOAPBOX will be available for your guests to purchase ahead, to use as a tool for the evening and as a memorable take-away!  PLUS, Kimberlie donates a portion of the book proceeds to your own favorite charity!  With enough advance notice, Kimberlie herself will be on-hand to help Co-Host your party, entertain your friends, and sign copies of PURE SOAPBOX

 CALL/ EMAIL for details!  (310) 500 – 9587   info@puresoapbox.com

Pure Soapbox Launches to Standing-Room-Only at BookPeople

book coverThe PURE SOAPBOX  book release and signing party at Austin’s BookPeople was absolutely fabulous…flawless!  Standing room only!  Kimberlie Dykeman coordinated a truly refreshing spin on the “average” book release.  Friends, family and countless new faces from the Austin and surrounding areas crowded the event, enjoying champagne from Taste, sushi from Zen, “Sweeto’s” from Sweet Leaf Tea and Tito’s Vodka, and dessert from Amy’s Ice Cream.  Orders have begun pouring in to Dalton Publishing  as well as emails recounting the touching message and genuine entertainment of the whole evening….proving that, for the budding entrepreneur and lost empty-nester, the burned-out parent and newly-single divorcee…this book has got something in that hits home and inspires change.

“I am so jazzed to witness this excitement and enlightenment in people, says Dykeman.  “And to do it through the written word and simply standing on my little soapbox, is proof that the old fashioned way still works!”  

Thank you also the BookPeople staff, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, REI, Backwoods, Waterloo Records, Avant Salon, Big Top Candy Shop, Tribeza, Austin Woman Magazine, Huey Houston and Game Plan Marketing.
