Kimberly Richards joins The Brave Files Podcast to talk about growing through mistakes.

Tenacity • Perserverence • Confidence

show notes:

When Kimberly Carson-Richards became a mother at age 14, she had no idea that raising her son would motivate her in unimaginable ways. Being a teenage mother forced Kimberly to be brave out of necessity and to pursue not only her own success but help others achieve success as well. She always believed in herself, even when others doubted her, and she stayed focused on her goals. Finally, Kimberly has achieved her dreams of building a better life.


Raising a child when she was still just a child herself wasn't easy but Kimberly was determined to finish high school, get her college degree and support herself as a young, single mom. Herself the child of a teen mother, Kimberly was determined to learn from not only her own mistakes but also her mother’s.


Kimberly met and married the love of her life, Regan and is now a mother of two. Recently she embarked on a new adventure as an entrepreneur after two decades in the traditional workforce. After a “soul session” with Stephane Hassein, Kimberly discovered a new path for herself and created Forward Momentum Coaching. Through her work as a coach, Kimberly has found new ways to help women create change in their lives. Both Kimberly and her clients feel happier and experience success.


And what of that little boy born to a 14-year-old girl? He is now one of the youngest members of the Alberta Provincial Legislature. How’s that for building a successful life?!
