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

Kimberlie Dykeman Takes a Bite out of NYC

From the minute she landed in New York, Kimberlie Dykeman took in fabulous new experiences every chance she could!  It began with a trip to the General Motors Building to join the crowds at a taping of CBS’s The Early Show…  Dykeman not only shook hands of the fabulously friendly anchors, she also garnered some serious camera-time for the cover of her book, Pure Soapbox, and  handed off a copy to the producer.  Just in case they needed a great guest to motivate their viewers in the New Year!

Dykeman stayed at the swanky SoHo Grande Hotel, dined at Lure and  Megu and took in the amazing contemporary West-Side Story-esque musical, In the Heights, at the Richard Rogers Theater.    A junket into Greenwich Village was distracted by the annual SantaCon celebration, where Dykeman asked not ONE but TWO Santas for a few Christmas gifts!   IMG_0283  IMG_0278 

 

 

 

 And a fabulous meeting with a top executive at the Discovery Network inched the TV Host and producer even closer to that ONE HUGE WISH LIST ITEM …of a talk show on the newly launching Oprah Winfrey Network!  After all Discovery and OWN are officially partners for life, now; and it’s about time Kimberlie Dykeman and the SOAPBOX brand hit the Big Time to motivate the masses!

Remember. Respect. Re-ignite. Relish your future.

Memorial Day is an incredibly moving day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.  For generations, our peers, partners, pals and parents have stood with dignity, integrity and the uttermost courage to make the United States of America what it is today: a land of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  I challenge you to set your political party preferences aside and simply let this thought sink in.  It’s not about what did right or wrong; should or shouldn’t have done; will or won’t do.   It’s bigger than that, folks.  Purposefully join together to honor those who gave their all for our collective rights, and simply pay mindful appreciation to all you have, all you get to do each day, and all your future might just hold.  Your memories are the magic of life.  Cherish them, share them…and make more!          – KD

Whether your first sweetheart’s phone number, your favorite song, or big acceptance speech, you’ve chosen to etch these things into your mind for timely safe-keeping.  Yet years later, buried convolutions release their imprints your call, and elicit surprising delight.  But it’s not the content, nor the fact that you remember it verbatim that elates your spirit.  Instead, your smile, laugh and peaceful pause for reflection evolve from the unfolding of the celebration surrounding such snippets.  When you commit anything to mind, you emphasize its importance to your heart.  Honor the influential people, places, experiences, and messages that graciously fill your moments and pay tribute to yourself by tapping the enlightening power of those memories.
