Marita Kinney: A Woman Who Knows How to Walk the Path to Success
Marita Kinney has managed to find success in various aspects of life—whether it’s with her writing, coaching or family life. In all that she does, she continues to inspire and encourage others, and Hope for Women is privileged to feature Kinney and share The BOSS Network member’s wisdom to help people live the lives of their dreams. What is your profession? I'm an author and mompreneur. That simply means that I manage to write books and own three successful businesses as a wife and mother of six children.
What accomplishments have you made during your time in this field? I have published 23 books, started my own publishing company and become a best-selling author. With that experience, I now mentor other authors and women in business.
What is one of the most important keys to your success? The key to my success is the passion behind it all. I take small steps every day doing what I love to do. Over time, it equals huge progress.
What are some of the obstacles and challenges you have faced? What helped you to overcome them? Being in an industry where I didn't know many women personally in my field, I didn’t have mentors or anyone to help me. I had to become a student along the way and be willing to invest in myself. I had to learn whatever I needed to in order to get the results I desired. I shifted my time. If it didn't enhance my life in some way, I avoided it. My time became valuable, and I was determined to succeed.
How would you encourage other women seeking to take the next step in their career endeavors? I'd suggest that they learn as much as they possibly can in their industries. Knowledge is truly power. No one can take your knowledge away from you. You can become an expert in anything as long as you know more than others in that field.
