This month’s CatchUp is with MomUp's superstar mom, Kim Holt.
Hi, I’m Kim Holt... I’m optimistic, resilient, empathetic, visionary, results driven, collaborative minded and so much more. My career path provided me with the opportunity to travel and live around the world, allowing me the chance to see the world through a different lens.
The team at MomUp is amazing. When I speak to them, I feel like I am talking to a close friend, who understands my situation and provides advice based on who am I am and my situation. Thank goodness for MomUp.
I am most proud of the impact I made within the APAC region when I was the Merchandising Director with Timberland. I was able to revitalize the Timberland brand with a very pivotal market.
I started working as soon as I was allowed. With my worker’s permit in hand, I starting working at a newspaper distribution office. I remember that job vividly.
Companies should know that working moms are a force to be reckon with. The ability to juggle work and family life is not an easy feat.
Find a way to upskill yourself. That is the best way to refresh your CV, especially if you have been away from the workplace for a while.
The belief that things will get better.
Be kind to yourself. You are only human, and sometimes you will make a mistake or drop the ball. It’s ok. Forgive yourself and move on.
I have never watched Netflix before the pandemic (yes, its true). But most recently I started watching Kim’s Convenience. It’s lighthearted, funny and reminds me of my family.
