What People Are Saying

Thought provoking, inspirational and insightful…words cited by the members of Virginia’s Hampton Roads Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals following a session with Kim Ades of Frame of Mind Coaching! Kim’s straight shooting and thoughtful advice left our chapter members with tools they could use to improve both their professional and personal lives. The biggest and most important lesson learned was the barriers to our success in life are often caused by constraints we place on ourselves. She challenged us to state what we really wanted, acknowledge what was standing in our way and commit to thinking differently to achieve personal and professional success.

In this unprecedented time, I highly recommend Kim Ades for virtual presentations. Kim totally and absolutely captured the interest of the group. In this very difficult time, she did a wonderful job of getting my team to engage and learn. The virtual meeting was really a chance to continue. It truly surpassed my expectations ─ Kim delivered and my team loved it. I love Kim’s storytelling and her connection to my team. She got my members to participate in a very challenging forum. I know they needed this and she helped them so much.

As one of the top shows in iTunes, our podcast has access to top-talent, so I know it when I see it. Kim Ades is not only a great interviewee, but she actually became one of my mentors in my own quest for growth. She will deliver to your audience and to you as well.

This woman changed my life in about 1 hour! One of the BEST virtual presentations I’ve attended to date. I am taking advantage of this time to learn, learn and learn so that I can be the best I can be. This matters for firstly myself and secondly for everyone I cross paths with. Never stop learning!

Kim Ades’s talk was nothing short of inspiring. The attendees were made up of highly accomplished managers with years of experience directing the activities of major companies in and around New York City. They can be a tough audience to say the least, but Kim completely captured them with her energy, thought-provoking questions and live participation. Everyone walked away with a valuable insight and a deeper understanding of how we impose limitations on ourselves instead of flying free towards our goals.

As a podcast producer and host, I’ve interviewed over 700 guests, including New York Times Bestselling Authors, self-help gurus and Academy Award Winners. Kim Ades was definitely a standout guest for me. I had her on all of my podcasts, and it was a wonderful experience. Kim provided valuable content for my listeners and focused on serving the needs of the show. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a guest who is engaging, entertaining and offers great insights and takeaways about how to change your life by changing your thinking. She has my highest recommendation.

Doug Foresta


I have seen Kim Ades speak in large rooms of entrepreneurs and in more intimate settings too. Regardless of the audience, Kim is engaging and confident. She is highly experienced in all the areas she talks about and uses vivid examples. During one of her talks, she did a live coaching session with a volunteer. I was sitting on the edge of my seat wondering how she was going to handle each challenge on the spot, but she knew exactly what to say and how to say it. It was super clear that Kim is not only a great speaker, but knows her stuff as both an experienced coach and someone who trains coaches. After I saw her speak, I hired her to be my personal coach and to speak for Entrepreneurs’ Organization. After other EO members saw her speak, they hired her to speak at other events. She has returned to speak at our chapter every year since and that speaks for itself.

Every once in awhile, you get an expert guest who is so good that you feel compelled to just hand the entire radio hour over to her. It’s rare, but it does happen. That would be Kim Ades of Frame of Mind Coaching. Kim is so insightful and enlightening that she can transform anyone in just a matter of minutes. Drawing upon her own experiences and wisdom, she has a knack for showing others how to look within for their own inspiration. Oh, and she’s funny to boot.

This Little Parent Stayed Home

I have had the good fortune to attend a number of leadership conferences and workshops throughout my career. The Frame of Mind Coaching™ event we participated in a couple weeks ago is possibly the best leadership seminar I have attended. Initially I thought it would be hard to stay on track to ask the right questions during coaching discussions. Interestingly enough, I have already seen positive change in one staff member due to our coaching discussion regarding his beliefs on certain products and situations. Kim brought to light some key coaching areas that each and every one of us can utilize on a daily basis. I feel significant benefit both professionally and personally from my implementation of a number of items covered that day.

For anyone looking to have Kim Ades on their podcast as a possible interviewee, I highly, highly recommend it. I had an amazing time interviewing her. Very rarely do I have guests that you can throw literally any question at them and they answer it; not like, “oh I read this book…” and they regurgitate some answer, but from experience. I think that’s really rare, and provided a ton of value for my listeners. If there’s anyone out there that is looking for an unbelievable interview, I highly recommend Kim Ades.

I was fortunate enough to see Kim present at a Strategic Human Resources conference in a room of 900 people. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. She has a way of getting to the heart of things and touching people in a very human way that is irresistible and that you can’t help but relate to.

I have listened to many of Kim’s podcast interviews and have been able to adopt many of her practical ideas to help me tackle life’s daily challenges. Instead of being trapped in my old habits, I get a sense of forward momentum and focus to move me towards my goals. I believe she is a fully dedicated and skilled coach with a sensitive and intuitive approach. She has a passion to help people create the lives that they want in a fun and energetic way, and I am grateful for how she has helped me.

Mindful Life

 Our leadership team attended a workshop given by Kim Ades and it was the highlight of our meeting. We all discovered new things and all felt that Kim understood who we were but also that she was just like us. The only difference is that she had voluntarily decided to make a difference and she decided that she wanted to grow as a person and give back to her family, her friends, her team and her customers. In a short period of time, all the leaders had a different perspective on what it meant to lead and transform people. I truly and sincerely recommend Kim’s workshop to any company that values their people!
