Hello! I'm Kimberly Sumpter, podcaster, coach and mentor. Since launching the Sistah's Connect podcast in January 2019, I’ve been featured on the Podcast Business Journal, Libsyn.com, Izzy & Liv and Authority Magazine.  The exposure has allowed me to connect with listeners from all around the world. I created the Podcasting Essentials for Beginners course to help content creators, aspiring storytellers and people just like you to develop and launch a podcast with ease. Podcasting is a booming medium and all that's missing is your voice. Let me help you to navigate through the process of creating your very own successful podcast as you focus on amplifying your unique message! 

As a woman of color, you have excelled in your area and have gone above and beyond for our cohort. You did not half ass this process at all. Because of your character and stance, you stood right there with us leading and guiding us all the way to the finish line. 


I have never in my life taken a course where the instructor gets right down in the work with you to ensure that you are on target even when her own plate is so full. Each of the tasks in the Podcasting Essentials For Beginners course were spelled out in terms that you could easily understand. Kim's patience was always at the maximum level. She is a woman of her word and it showed every single morning when she posted messages inside our virtual classroom. She didn't just teach us about how to create a podcast, she instilled in us values and lessons that will carry us through our new journey as podcasters.

In all of my life, I have never had a teacher who was so passionate about making sure I succeed as Kim has been. Before taking her Podcasting Essentials For Beginners course, I read a testimonial from another client that said "Kim pours into you" and I have come to experience that this is truly an understatement. She diligently and tirelessly, works beyond the call of duty to see that you have all the essentials needed to succeed as a new podcaster.
