This is one of those stories that exemplifies why I started RISE. Those stories that are inspirational, interesting, and full of tips.

Kim OvertonA few years ago, Kim Overton was running on a lake trail when she came up with the idea for . Fast forward to three years later, and now SPIbelt:

  • Has sold 150,000 products (!) to date.
  • Has a slew of trusted manufacturers and partners.
  • And all of this was accomplished with just a few employees (!) (now THAT is smarter, faster, cheaper!).

In this interview, Kim spills the beans on how this all happened with plenty of advice for all of us. Enjoy!

PS: Thanks to Lyn Graft at for setting up this interview.

  • I met Kim in 2009 at MAGIC (tradeshow) when we were first getting started with our line of fitness bags. She’s very cool and she and SPIBELT have definitely been an inspiration for us as we’ve grown.

    Another great interview (slowly making my way through your archive). 🙂

    Recently I was extremely low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this!!! – xW68
