When life gives you lemons you better learn to make lemonade. Adaptability, flexibility, and a resolute mindset of 'I can', allowed my guest - Kim Savage, to keep her doors open during the height of the Economic Recession of 2007-2011. Many would argue, that recession is not truly over.
While many felt the pinch of the recession, those who made a living in Real Estate probably noticed it the most. Kim, a licensed Virgina Realtor, immediately reviewed her resources, and reinvented herself to offer property preservation and rehab services to the growing foreclosure market. Kim figured out how to turn these life lemons into profitable lemonade.
No stranger to heavy duty construction equipment, Kim and a crew of women may not be the only women owned company in the property rehab business, but they certainly rank high among the few.
Don't let her last name (Savage) fool you. Kim is all pink and feminine - but her resilience has allowed her to make a mark in a male dominated industry.
She wil share with us the whole business of reinventing yourself and your business to stay viable in difficult economic times, and how she is able to carve out a place in a heavily male dominated profession.
