Today we’d like to introduce you to Kimberly Davis.
Kimberly is the founder and owner of the Journey to Wholeness Center. The Journey to Wholeness Center is a holistic healing and wellness center located in Oak Lawn IL. Kimberly is a seasoned professional who spent over 25 years in corporate management. Prior to establishing the Journey to Wholeness Center, she was an Executive Director at a Marketing and Supply Chain Management Company. Stress, fatigue, and an unshakable feeling of discontentment in her personal and professional life, motivated her to go within to begin her own personal journey to wholeness. Through studying, travelling, and working with various healing practitioners all over the world she was not only able to heal her life but discover her true life’s purpose along the way. Kimberly left her corporate job in 2014 to pursue her true passion for helping others live their best lives, by providing them with the tools and resources required to empower and heal from within. It is Kimberly’s life purpose and mission to be a conduit of love, light and healing one person at a time.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The most challenging aspect of starting and owning your own business, is the need to become an expert in so many disciplines as it pertains to owning and operating a startup business. The Journey to Wholeness center was created from an idea, a concept, that I had in my mind to truly help others on their own personal journey to health and wellness. I didn’t have a template for success. In corporate, as a business executive, I was responsible for creating and implementing business and technical solutions for large corporations. With that responsibility came a team of resources that I could hand pick, to ensure the solution was delivered. I could pull resources from accounting, finance, IT, human resources, marketing, & operations, etc. to leverage their specific skill sets to deliver an end to end solution. When starting your own business, you are responsible for wearing all of those hats. I had to procure a location, design the space, create the programming, hire the staff, create market materials, market the business, create & manage financials and oversee day to day operations. I had to get smart really fast about all aspects of the business from licensing, financing and operations to marketing and sales. As we are wrapping up our first full year of business, the day to day operations are much smoother, thanks to my office manager, however I am challenged daily with the responsibility of attracting and retaining new clients and tapping into the corporate wellness arena.

We are planning to expand our service offerings deeper into the Corporate Wellness arena. Many individuals are suffering greatly from workplace fatigue and corporations are losing productivity and profitability from a stressed, burned out, and unhealthy workforce. I have a great deal of experience with the wellness challenges corporations and individuals are experiencing. It is estimated that 83% of all American’s are impacted by workplace stress & fatigue (Huffington Post, Jan 2016) We can provide solutions that can address these issues and produce a better work environment for all to experience.
