I LOVE my life!

“I LOVE my life!” Many of you have heard me say this during a seminar or simply while in conversation with me. It’s a true statement. I love my life and an enormous part of that is loving the work that I do. As many of you know, I determined over 15 years ago that I would work for Klemmer as a facilitator. Little did I know that intention had an even bigger vision attached to it.

Five years ago, Krystal and I purchased the company because we did not want the Klemmer work to end after Brian Klemmer’s untimely death. We could not imagine a world where Klemmer tools were not taught and used. And, we were fully committed to creating a world that works for everyone with no one left out. Now, as we look back at this decision, the changes, the struggles, the sacrifices and the wins – we know without a doubt that we did the right thing.

Over the years, Klemmer has impacted hundreds of thousands of lives through our seminars and our belief in the traits of a Compassionate Samurai. We do not simply teach these ideals, we do our best to live them daily. Our friend and mentor Jim Stovall (President of Narrative Television Network as well as a published author of many books including The Ultimate Gift.  He is also a columnist and motivational speaker) had this to say about Klemmer in his recent newsletter:

“My late, great friend and colleague Brian Klemmer wrote an influential book entitled The Compassionate Samurai.  He hosted an international conference several times each year until his passing, and the conference continues as a significant part of his legacy.  Brian’s theory was that there are two kinds of people in the world:  compassionate individuals who have great hearts, and powerful people he called samurai who have a lot of control and influence.  He felt that when you can combine compassion and power, you can change the world for the better. 

Twice each year, I continue to travel to a small island in Mission Bay near San Diego where both powerful and compassionate people from around the world gather to explore how to maximize their gifts.  I have given over 40 speeches to this organization and believe my work with these unique people to be among the most fruitful of my career.”

Jim’s sentiments echo our own. The work we have done within the Klemmer organization has been the most powerful and fruitful of our careers! We get excited seeing lives change, people grow and dreams come true. Every day is a unique opportunity for us to learn, grow, serve and love.

Klemmer has a lot of new and exciting things on the horizon! We will be doing everything from introducing our new brand and creating a new website to customizing a platform that will include and benefit all of our grads. Stay tuned for more information!

As we’ve been writing this letter it occurred to us that a blog or note from us on a consistent basis would interest the grad base. We would love to get your feedback on topics and ideas you would like to hear about from us. If you have an idea or a topic, please email kristie@klemmer so she can create a list for us.

Thank you to each and every one of you for your support of Klemmer, our programs and our mission! It’s because of people like you that we all WIN every day!

In gratitude,

Kimberly Zink & Krystal Zellmer
