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

Dykeman Showcased in Women of Personality e-Book by Rohit Bhargava

 

Last year Rohit Bhargava, blogger & SVP at Ogilvy 360 Digital Influence, launched his latest book “Personality Not Included”  to great accolades.  In response to a flurry of emails from women business owners who talked about how they were already intuitively using personality in their businesses, he has chosen to also launch a companion e-book.  The compilation book, entitled “Women of Personality”, is part of The Personality Project, and features 20 visionary female entrepreneurs sharing their stories of success.    Collectively they answered one simple questions:  How has personality helped you achieve success with your career or your business?

 

According to Bhargava, an elite marketer and renowned blogger, all showcased contributors qualify as some of the most visionary, approachable and interesting women in business today; and each of the participants was chosen because she has not only built a successful career for herself but has also made significant contributions to helping other women become successful as well.

 

I met Rohit for a spit-second at SXSW last year and we have since connected on the net to keep up and learn from one another.  Apparently he’d begun  following my career path via updates, reviews and tweets…for I have been honored as one of the chosen  entrepreneurs!    Read about this fascinating project and download your own FREE copy of the e-book, “Women of Personality”.
