A Day in the Life of a Daughter

My third installment of the series on Kim Baum A day in the life of a daughter:  Kim's life is an incredible balance between business owner, veterinarian, ranch hand, wife, mother, friend, and daughter.   One of the most important roles she plays is that of primary care-giver to her 85 year old mother.  Kim's mom, Patsy, is a feisty gal who still lives a mostly independent life in a separate house on the Silver Buckle Ranch.  But Patsy has health problems and a touch of dementia and honestly, living single on a ranch is pretty lonesome.  So Kim spends a lot of time with her mom.  Patsy comes over for dinner each night, Kim brings Patsy along on her errands as often as she can, and includes her as much as Patsy is able.  Kim takes care of Patsy's bills, medical appointments, and all her shopping.

A Day in the Life of a Home-based business

A day with Kim Baum - Part 2

Kim runs two businesses:  DeAngelo Ground Maintenance in Arvada and she is also a Melaleuca advocate from her home in Elizabeth.  You can see from A Day in the Life on a Ranch, Kim's a busy woman who is managing a ranch, two businesses, taking care of her young teen son, and caring for her 85 your old mother full time.  Kim attends meetings, goes to doctor's appointments, joins conference calls, manages the books for her husband's carpentry business, and takes care of her horses.  She has  a young protogee, Beth, who is learning roping from Kim, joins them for Sunday roping and dinner, and is also learning the Melaeuca business.  Kim couldn't be a better mentor and friend.

In this series, Kim is preparing for her "bucket challenge" where she offered a month's supply of Melaleuca cleaning supplies for free to anyone willing to trade in their toxic cleaners for the all natural cleaners from Melaleuca for a month.  Kim and Beth participated in an hour long team conference call where they talk about sales motivation and strategy, and then she went to the school to offer cleaning products to some of the teachers to use in their classrooms.  As a shameless plug for Kim, if you are interested in trying the bucket challenge, you can contact Kim at thebaum16@yahoo.com or 303-810-2287
