Hi, I'm Kim Hickey — empowering shop owners to rescue themselves and supercharge their success!

My 34 years of real-world experience — and many days when I wanted to pull my hair out — have positioned me as an industry expert, but not your typical expert.

I started the Maximum Octane podcast to share my unique expertise, and create an honest, fun, educational, and unconventional view of our industry and the people in it.

Kim is a natural leader by inspiring others. Kim is a rare find that takes the time to listen first and then offers some key piece of insight that I swear every time makes the conversation better. I always walk away with something learned. I like the fact she is so creative because every time I chat with her it reminds me to live life to the fullest. 

Kim should be on your fav list.
