Q&A, purpose, values dissect
On this special Mother’s Day, I interviewed Ruth Kim, the founder of Backed by Women.
Ruth is a powerhouse of energy and love. Dominant in the masculine sense of productivity and efficiency, she also fosters a unique feminine side fueled by desire, connection, and intuition. I have so much respect for this woman and am inspired by her story.
This interview dissects the 5 values of Backed By Women and how it came to be.
And together, we co-created the following Values Statement:
Rooted in LOVE, we allow ourselves to SURRENDER in CONNECTION with other women to discover our FEMININE power within and be fueled by our PURPOSE to change the world.
purpose, storytelling, rants, recap
This past weekend, I had just graduated from CP12 where I spent 7 months in a transformative and experiential Coaching “Change your Entire Life” program with 124 other deep diverse divers from all around the world. The themes from CP12 were Wake UP, Come OUT, and Join IN. Pushing us all past our edges, softening and smoothing our internal systems, moving fast at the speed of desire. We all played full out.
I’m in digestion mode now, reflecting on the subtle to huge transformational shifts that took place internally within and externally through all of the moments that expanded my consciousness. And I can say wholeheartedly now, without shame, that I choose to go down this path. I choose to live a life of Desire, Connection, Community, Healing, and Awakening. I choose to constantly Come Out just as I am.
I met Scout at the New Living Expo while I was out to get free samples at a smoothie stand. He was a big bear of a dude, wearing a purple suit, purple boots and purple beard to match. We get into conversation and he offers to give me a powerful energy reading and meditation. l let my guards completely down, I feel open, expansive, powerful, light, and clear, close to tears at the end of it.
I gift him an Awareness reMINDmeband from my wrist (also purple!) and tell him about my mission, how I interview people to share life nuggets about humanity. He looks at me for 5 seconds and says “I’ve got a crazy idea” andinvites me to his morning radio talkshow so I can do a raw interview with him there. Apparently, I was talking to the host of the longest running Personal Growth radio programs in the nation.
Sparks of electricity ran throughout my system as I stared into the mic and felt the energy of 15,000 listeners on the other end. And as I spoke, I was taken aback at how smooth and grounded and sure my voice was as I fell more into my body. I took myself out of control and spoke from the heart about my project and directed my attention solely on him. At the end, I had his endorsement of my work and my craft of how intimate the whole experience had felt from his side.
So lesson learned: Listen to the voice. Go for free samples if that’s your desire. Be generous with your time and attention. Feel the impact of every small to big thing you do. #POWER

I followed my passion and do what I love to do. I wander and interview people from all walks of life and learn as much as I can about the human experience. I do this to asking a simple question: "What are your top 5 values?" By expressing curiosity, placing exquisite attention, and holding space, I connect with and help people unearth who they were, who they are, and who they want to be....
