Earlier this week, I sat down to be interviewed for Shock Your Potential, a business podcast focused on “excellence in leadership, sales and the customer experience.” Michael Sherlock hosts the podcast; she reached out to me via LinkedIn after regularly picking up issues of Global Traveler in Delta Air Lines’ lounges around the country.
I was flattered she asked me, especially when I looked into the podcast further and noted she seeks out the “greatest examples” she can find to “share positive examples in business today.”
Some of the topics we covered included some background of my career, the people in my past that helped get me to where I am today, how our publications help people reach new potential and what I would tell the younger Kim. I’ll be sure to let everyone here know when the podcast is live sometime in July. In the meantime, however, be sure to check out past interviews on Shock Your Potential.

TAP Air Portugal is adding 15 new weekly flights from the United States and Canada by summer 2020, a new record for the carrier of 71 weekly flights between North America and Portugal.
As harmful to the environment as air travel is, some airports are taking measures to become more environmentally conscious. One example is Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where an adjacent solar farm powers certain airport operations.
United Airlines announces a number of new routes.
Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
