We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Kim Cook. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Kim below.
Kim, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. Can you open up about a risk you’ve taken – what it was like taking that risk, why you took the risk and how it turned out?
I have taken a huge risk and am betting on myself by quitting my 9 to 5 and working for myself full-time! I felt the urge and calling to let my last job go when I could no longer further someone else’s dream, while mine lay dormant. It just felt like a piece of me was dying on the inside. So, while I enjoyed the field I worked, I couldn’t do it any longer. Took the leap of faith and resigned. This has been one of the scariest things I have ever done. Without a “backup” plan. All bets are on me. Trusting myself to see it through and come out more successful on the otherside!!
Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers?
I am Kim, CEO and Owner of Plant Ther’py LLC. A company that is driven to see “Plants Healing People”. A passion to heal our community through the healing properties of plants, relieving them of traumas, anxieties and depression. Offering plant based services and products to get us back in touch with nature. Offering Aloe based products such as: Aloe Vera Gel for skin and Aloe/Flaxseed Gel for hair. Also, services including, succulent garden classes, plant meditation and nature walks available!
Have you ever had to pivot?
When covid hit, I found it extremely odd when people began to fight each other over simple necessities like toilet paper. So, I thought to myself what is going to happen when the food supply runs low as well. Pure mayhem will ensue. So I did some researched, tapped into my ancestral knowledge and began to learn how to grow food. With the driving force to teach and reconnect my community to our natural and innate ability to tend the earth, I began building and growing. Publishing a book in May 2022, All Living Things Seed To Harvest Gardening Workbook found on Amazon, is a fun and interactive way to learn how to grow your own food from Seed To Harvest!
How’d you build such a strong reputation within your market?
I feel that it is my genuine care and concern for my community. I am driven to reconnect us to nature and the healing properties of plants. With this purpose in mind we can treat and heal, anxieties, trauma and depression through what I call “Plant Ther’py”. Offering meditation with essential oils, succulent arrangement creation and even nature walks to bring calm and peace in a world that has become stir-crazy. What I want is when people think of plants, they think of me!
