Welcome to Kim Porter TV!
Hi! I’m Kim Porter an award-winning entrepreneur, business and life coach!
My first career was as a professional makeup artist. My business, Makeup by Kim Porter, has been featured in the top wedding magazines and blogs including The Knot and Style Me Pretty. I’ve worked with hundreds of brides, as well as high-profile politicians and celebrities, such as Vice President Mike Pence and Barbara Corcoran from “Shark Tank”. I opened the first makeup studio in Virginia Beach and created my own makeup line.
I fell in love with mentoring makeup artists early in my career and knew in 2015 after years of studying, that I wanted to become a coach. We found out we were expecting our third child and I was presented with the proverbial fork in the road… do I move my business back home to start my higher calling with coaching or go bigger with my makeup artistry business? I chose to follow my head and not my heart and a few months after our third child was born, I opened up a 4 station beauty bar, I was so busy hiring a team, booking weddings, working in the studio. I started to hear the whispers of, “You’re suppose to be doing more” and I soon became depressed after realizing I had made a huge mistake. I was miserable and I didn’t know how to get out of the hole I had dug for myself.
It was a stressful time but after sharing my story with others I realized I was not alone and that other women felt stuck in their lives and careers. The more I started to share my story, the more clients were hiring me for business AND life coaching. It has been an amazing transition from helping women feel better through makeup to helping women live their best lives through coaching.
I now have a beautiful studio/office space that is absolutely perfect for me and I couldn’t be happier. It was a hard lesson to learn to listen to my heart but this is the core of my coaching, to follow our intuition, to get clear about what we really want and to live our lives with intention and gratitude.
I hope by sharing my story I can inspire others to live their lives more authentically. I am now very happy living with my husband and three children in Virginia Beach, VA. I love reading, bike riding, going camping and to the beach.
