Kimberly Kimble is an LA native who initially wanted to be a fashion stylist. However, working in her mother’s beauty salon helped shift her interest to hair styling. This resulted in Kim attending Dudley Cosmetology University and the Vidal Sassoon Academy.
In 1995, Kim opened ‘Phaze II’, her first beauty parlor. She became more successful when she began to style hair for the film industry. ‘Baps’, ‘Austin Powers’,  and ‘Cinderella’ are films Kim worked on to name a few.

Her reputation as a good hair stylist has grown tremendously. As a result, Kim has touched the heads of stars such as Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Shakira, Kerry Washington, Gabrielle Union, Mary J. Blige, Keri Hilson, Vanessa Williams and Sanaa Lathan.

Today, Kim is mostly known from her own TV show called “L.A. Hair” on WeTV.

One would say that many of Steve Harvey’s Facebook videos goes viral daily. The humor provided between his daytime talk show and Family Feud is embraced by fans with likes, comments, and shares. However, there’s one video that went viral and didn’t give humor, but rather a more personal Steve gives some encouraging advice [off camera] to his audience during a taping of Family Feud. 

 

I’m going to share something with you that every successful person has to do, including you, believe it or not. Every successful person in this world has jumped. Eventually, you are going to have to jump. You cannot just exist in this life. You have got to try to live. If you are waking up thinking that it’s gotta be more to your life than it is, man, believe that it is.”

Listen to his inspiring speech on success.

ELLE recently published a featured article on these beautiful women, and I was so intrigued and inspired, I had to share the story.

It’s awesome when ANYONE starts a business. It’s fantastic when the business owner is a woman. It’s sensational when the business owner is a woman of color! This story of three African-American women who started a law firm together makes me prouder of my people!

Because one woman, Yonde Morris, decided to step out on faith, she and her friends Keli Knight and Jessica Riddick, are working for themselves and guess what…they used the social media giant, Twitter, to help turn their dream into fruition.

By Elle:

Every business has its Hollywood origin story—the wee-hours revelation, the “Eureka!” moment, the so-crazy-it-just-might-work experiment. But the tale that the partners of the African-American- and female-owned KMR Law Group like to tell isn’t some blockbuster epic. It’s made of about 140 characters and one very consequential tweet.

“I had been doing some work that I definitely didn’t love,” explains Yondi K. Morris, a founding partner of KMR. “Technically, I was a contract attorney, which means I went into law firms to help them with whatever they needed for some period of time.” Newly installed at a law firm that she is too polite to shame, she was on the clock when a partner went over to check in on her progress.

“He just looked at me and said, ‘Okay, slave, get back to work.'” She was the only person of color in the room. “I looked around and just waited for someone to catch my eye,” she remembers. No one met her gaze. Worse still, no one looked surprised.

“For me, honestly, I wasn’t just insulted as an African-American woman. I didn’t want to be viewed as a worker bee anymore.” She went home and logged on and tweeted, “I need to start my own firm.” Keli L. Knight wasted no time. She replied right away, writing, “Let’s meet to discuss.” They did, and invited Jessica Reddick, an old friend that Morris had known for a decade, to join. “We got together one day in Starbucks and that was the first meeting,” Morris says. “We just all clicked—our personalities, our dreams, our ambitions. In that moment, it all made sense.” Adrenaline and caffeine flowing, they sketched out a provisional logo on scrap paper and drafted an informal business plan to start a law firm in Chicago. “We decided we were going to do it,” Morris says, “and haven’t looked back since.”
