The rest of the story …
Kim is a true entrepreneur — which makes her seminars even more inspirational for attendees because she actually lives the entrepreneurial life and fully understands the ups and downs of being a small business owner.
Midnight Productions, Inc. has been serving the small business community with marketing materials (both online and offline) since 1996. They offer marketing and business coaching; graphic design; website design; advertising design; social media marketing — anything and everything a small business needs to be successful with their marketing program.
Kim is also a working artist (although she prefers the title “Creative Adventurer”) — she is a professional equine photographer, fiction writer, and poet. Because she makes a good chunk of her living from creating art, she also understands the ins and outs of being an artist entrepreneur. Through Kim Beer Photography, Kim travels around the world taking photos of horses and their humans. Some of the images are used for fine art. Others tell the story of equine athletes, standout individuals and horse friends. But Kim’s true gift is telling the photographic stories of life coaches who partner with horses to accomplish amazing things in human lives. Kim teaches classes in photographic artistry and photography as well.
Kim’s website, KimberlyBeer.com, features Kim’s fine art, fiction and poetry in a blog format. She routinely publishes works in progress as well as finished pieces.
She is also a ranch owner — The Beer Ranch is a working cattle ranch that also has 194 acres of row cropped land. The ranch also features recreational opportunities for private events and is host to several such events each year including a dirt bike motocross race and some equine related events. The Beer Ranch is Kim’s home as well as the home of all of her business endeavors including an awesome new mindfulness entrepreneur workshop series focused on helping “Horsepower for your Business” and “Horsepower for your Life.” These workshops are offered in co-creation with Vicki Jurica of The Lamaste Center who partners with horses to help humans achieve their dreams.
Kim attributes much of her success as an entrepreneur to lessons she has learned over the years from The Beer Ranch. Her keynote speeches reflect the interconnection of human, business, and nature. With over 20 years experience as a woman ranch manager, Kim has many stories — you can read them on her blog LessonsFromTheRanch.com.
Kim is passionately committed to seeing entrepreneurs succeed and she gives of her knowledge and experience freely. As a speaker and coach, she strives to inspire creative marketing, mindfulness, gratitude and success.
