Meet Trailblazer Kimesha Coleman

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kimesha Coleman.

Kimesha, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
As a survivor of domestic violence and going through my own healing process, I knew there were others out there seeking answers and looking for their own sense of self. In 2011, I started out mentoring women in disadvantaged groups and emergency crisis shelters. At that time, I didn’t know the space I held or the impact but I knew it felt really rewarding. In the summer of 2014, I was laid off and during that time I decided that I would take more control of my life. I started CoachingbyKimesha.com, full-service self-esteem and business coaching company that works with survivors and women entrepreneurs.

Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been an easy process transitioning from working for someone else’s company to running your own. Every day is different, there are so many hats to be worn and so much to learn in order to get your business up and running. Coming from a place of unworthiness and feeling invisible I struggled with being in the front line and being the face of my company. But through the process of releasing shame, guilt, and detaching from my past experiences, I’m now a confident and bold woman. I am the brand.

For those starting their journey, when fear tries to talk you out of your dream, be ready to put up a good fight. I have a quote that says “Courage is feeling the fear and doing it anyway.”

Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I’m known as the Self-Esteem Enhancement Expert, an uncommon mentor that specializes in working with the abused as they walk through their pains to a victorious and joyful life while discovering their true selves and finding fulfillment in their own success.

I’m known for telling my own incredibly raw real-life story of harrowing encounters with abuse, the crippling aftermath, and the growing through pains.

Through coaching, I work with individuals that find themselves stuck in either their career, relationship, or business to identify and resolve the inner confusions, negative self-talk, and in-congruent behavior.

I’ve also written four self-help books: He Loves Me Not: Buried Tears of Betrayed Love, Mastering Self-Esteem: 5 Steps to Move from Suffering to Contentment, What My Last Boyfriend Taught Me, and Pretty On Pretty Off: The Journey Within.

I love helping people and sharing stories. I find that sharing my story ignites a power within me and empowers others to take hold of their own.

What’s the most important piece of advice you could give to a young woman just starting her career?
Never minimize yourself in order to make someone else feel better.
