Transcription

J.R.:
Hi, so Kim and I just finished. She taught yesterday. I just finished today teaching at the Destination Downtown thing. That's three classes 5 Stones has taught this week.

Kim:
This week.

J.R.:
What did you teach on, Kim?

Kim:
I taught on StoryBrand. How to use StoryBrand Framework to clarify your message for communities to attract citizens and visitors.

J.R.:
And then I taught on websites, kind of what to look for in a good website, how websites are still relevant, and then kind of a little bit more about content. And then I went into answering questions. Just kind of a lot about websites for all these folks. So, Kim, I wanted to ask. You teach more than anybody in our organization. Why do you like to teach?

Kim:
Because I love it, and I'm a crazy extrovert. I love just having fun talking. I talk a lot. It's what I used to do. I was trained to be a teacher.

J.R.:
So when you're up there, I watched you teach your class yesterday, and you look like you might've just rolled out of bed. It's no trouble for you. Not that you look like you rolled out of bed-

Kim:
I know. I'm like what?

J.R.:
But it's just you're so calm and stuff about it, whereas I've been obsessing about this and can't sleep or whatever. How do you do that?

Kim:
I don't know. It's just a God-given gift, I think. My purpose in life is to teach, connect, and serve.

J.R.:
You do a good job of it, but I think that speaks a little bit to your values, obviously, the connect and serve thing. What do you think people get out of it? We do this, and do you think they're going to be able to go do, or what do you think happens next?

Kim:
Yes. I think that they get confidence. People are so afraid of screwing something up or doing it wrong. And so they come in, and they get some encouragement and some confidence until they can go out and try to tackle it themselves. And then if they find that "It's too over my head, I can't really do that," they at least know where to go to get answers.

J.R.:
Right. And I'll add to that. I always learn something from the class too. I can go over a class over and over again, and then when I'm in the class, I'm always like, "Ah, I should've added that" because of something someone asked. So I think we learn a little bit too, right?

Kim:
Absolutely.

J.R.:
Well, anyway, that's our class. You got anything else to add?

Kim:
No, I should be questioning you. You're good at this. I'm not good at this.

J.R.:
See, look, I'm controlling it so that I don't get uncomfortable, right? Anyway. All right. Bye.
