In July 2011 she began hosting monthly gatherings in her home where women are warmly welcomed and encouraged to share like the contributors in her book. In 2015, with the help of a good friend, Kim started coaching men and women in the art of storytelling and producing and directing storytelling events that are transformational for both storyteller and audience. She also partners with poet Daingerfield Dunn and produces and directs his live spoken word experiences.
In 2018 GRC was re-imagined into Kim for the World, a suite of services for men and women seeking to create inner sanctuary for a balanced, peaceful, meaningful life. That same year she also said “yes” to a different calling. She began serving as Spiritual Leader at Unity Spiritual Center, Sachse, Texas, where she inspires seekers to embrace and express their innate divine natures. She is now studying at Unity Worldwide Spiritual Institute to become an ordained Unity minister.
In 2020, GRC was re-imagined into The Call to Peace, a suite of services for men and women seeking to create inner sanctuary for a balanced, peaceful, meaningful life.

As the first African American to win the Birmingham City Chess Championship, first in 1999 and again in 2000, Orrin Hudson knows how to make the winning move.
But as a former gang member in his teen and the seventh of 13 children growing up in Birmingham public housing, Hudson knows that the principles of chess — concentration, self-esteem, problem-solving skills and discipline — apply just as well to the game of life. Following these principles, Hudson became an Alabama State Trooper.
Hudson was called to action shortly after learning of a robbery that ended the lives of five employees for $2,400, realizing for evil to prevail, the only thing required is that good people do nothing. So he founded Be Someone, Inc., and a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, to share his knowledge of choosing peace instead of violence and to put brains before bullets.
Now, he teaches the youth to stop chasing after the wrong cash and go after K.A.S.H.: knowledge, Attitude, Skill and Habits.
“Make Your Next Move Your Best Move and Every Move after that,” Hudson said. “Think it out. Don’t shoot it out.”
His speeches combine high energy performance, straight talk, personal experience and passion, teaching young people the invaluable life lesson a high school teacher named James Edge passed onto him: take time to think things through.
"With his help, I began to understand life through a chessboard,” Hudson said. “He showed me that every move you make has consequences and in order to improve my game and my life, I had to make better choices. I slowly realized that I was responsible for my own success or failure.”
In the same way that chess helped Hudson develop his focus and skills, his organization’s ultimate mission is to build character, hope and inspiration so that kids can realize their full potential.
Hudson also authored One Move at a Time: How to Play and Win at Chess and Life! weaving chess strategies into 21 life lessons.

What would you do if your husband lost all of your money and moved away with a stripper? In this interview with Lee Gaitan she shares what she did, because that's exactly what happened to her.
Keep in mind that as a woman “of a certain age,” I am a certified expert on bad bounces (and short of having spandex panels grafted onto my thighs, I am destined to bounce even more with each passing year). But, on a more serious note, I am a bit of an expert on the other kind of bad bounces as well—the kind that can shake your foundation, shatter your world and fling you to the ground.

Talk to people that Chris Krimitsos has spent any amount of time with and you’ll hear descriptions like “changemaker,” “motivator,” “catalyst for change,” and “inspiration.” Whether it’s a major corporation’s CEO or a solopreneur, Chris is passionate about being a difference maker. Unlike the featured guest who comes in and delivers a keynote and leaves, slipping out the back door like a national celebrity, Chris Krimitsos is the passionate professional who hangs around talking to anyone who wants his time – to listen, evaluate, and affect change.
Chris brings the unique perspective of success from both sides of an event. He understands the challenges of the organizer that needs to move an audience, having himself facilitated over 2,000 events that have brought together business owners, toward economic growth, under the umbrella of Tampa Bay Business Owners, which he founded in 2008. That success regionally was the springboard to launching a national event, Podfest Multimedia Expo, which he grew to over 975 attendees in just five years, with an expectation of 1,500-plus in year six, thanks to his ability to communicate key messaging to that community.
Channeling that energy into creating a documentary, now he is making an impact globally. Under the CK Productions banner, as a filmmaker and producer, Chris successfully birthed The Messengers: A Podcast Documentary, which obtained worldwide distribution and theatrical screenings. This after having hosted and produced two TV shows earlier in his career. Of note was one of those projects being archived in the Library of Congress.
With a unique skill set programmed to stay out in front of rapid change, Chris Krimitsos – as a speaker, as a business leader, and as a source for growth – is empowering audiences toward better opportunities for succeeding in business in the 21st century.
