You can read the official 'who I am' at the foot of this page and watch 'My Journey' video, but let me tell you why I do what I do.


I want to inspire you and show you how to start your own business

The world of employment has changed and many people are dissatisfied. They want to start their own business so they can take control of their life and make changes, but they don't know how to go about it.


I want to show you how to be successful and avoid costly mistakes

Whenever I've started any of my businesses, it's taken me a while to figure out how to do it. I've spent time and money making many costly mistakes in my journey to become expert in the essentials of building a successful business.  I share the how to's of building a successful business here and help you work out what activities will bring the best return on investment - and just as important, what you don't need to spend money on.


I want you to live the life you dream of - today as well as tomorrow

Many people are climbing up a ladder - in a career or their own business - only to discover the ladder is up against the wrong wall. I've been there myself. I've learned it's crucial to begin with the end in mind so you reach your goals and enjoy the ride along the way.


Since starting my first business in 1999, it's been a roller-coaster, but my life has changed beyond what I could possibly have imagined. I am grateful everyday for the lessons I have learned, and continue to learn; and the people (both the protagonists and the antagonists) who have shared my journey and helped me become the person I am today.  Because of these experiences, I can truly say I love the life of freedom I live today.


If you'd like to share your journey with me, I'd love to hear your story.  If you've got a question on starting or growing your own business, please do ask and I'll do my best to answer.   You can email me on kimberley@kimberleycharman.com.

Here's a bit about other parts of my life that may interest you: 

  •  I've been a judicial office holder since 1999 which means that I'm part of a panel comprised of a judge and lay member/s that decides the outcome of appeals for:
    • Employment Tribunal discrimination and unfair dismissal claims, hence I understand the ins and outs of being an employee and employer.
    • Special Educational Needs and Disability appeals where parents are fighting for their child to have extra support or a change of school. I believe with the right support, children with special needs can achieve much more than many people think is possible.
  • I started a charity when I was 25 to support people with learning difficulties into real paid jobs. We placed the first person with Downs Syndrome in a job in Marks and Spencer. I was Chief Executive for 10 years and it's still going strong today.
  • I'm mum to two amazing daughters - one who is at university and en route to becoming a successful entrepreneur herself; and one who is still at school and has ambitions to win an Oscar for film production.
  • I grew up living in Kenya and South Korea, attending an American International School until I was 18 as my parents worked abroad; and I can read and write in Korean.
  • I have a Bichon Frise dog called Joey who drives me mad and makes me laugh every single day.
  • I wrote a list of all the qualities I wanted in the perfect partner - and after being a single mum for two years, and when I was least expecting it, he came into my life! 
  • I once went to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen and nearly had the most embarrassing incident of my life in front of Her Majesty herself.

I am a self-employed entrepreneur with multiple streams of income including traditional, online and network marketing businesses.  I started out, in 1999, like most self-employed people exchanging my time for money until I realised that to earn more, I had to continually work more.  So I went on a quest to find ways to earn money even when I was sleeping.  Now, I only build businesses that don’t tie me to working in a specific place at a specific time because I love my freedom!  


If you're in the early stages of starting and growing your own business, or just thinking about starting a business from home, I can help you:

  • Decide if self-employment is right for you and what kind of business will meet your goals
  • Show you how to do the most important actions you must do if you want to be successful
  • Develop ways to create income when you sleep (even in a traditional business)
