Kadena TateSimon, Revenue Strategist

Who is Kadena TateSimon?

I am the author of “Cultivating Courage: The Path to Reclaiming Your Power,” contributing author of the NY Times Bestseller “Business Model You,” published by Wiley Press, and the United States Air Force Veteran.

In addition to writing books, I am a revenue strategist and business model designer for association executives, small business owners, authors, coaches, and speakers who want to create movements, masterminds, membership programs, and multiple revenue streams.

My hobbies are reading, writing, dancing, and international travel.

Kadena, can you please tell us about your business and what you do?

I help my clients design sustainable revenue models and increase profits. I work with small businesses and association executives to help them assess their current situation, set goals, and develop strategies for achieving those goals. I also provide ongoing support and advice to help my clients implement their plans and make adjustments as needed.

What kind of audience do you target your business towards?

I've been a revenue strategist for almost 20 years, and I've supported clients from a variety of backgrounds with diverse needs. My favorite four clients are the small business owner, the association executive, the published author, and the coach or speaker.

Each of these individuals has something in common – they want to improve their bottom line. And while my clients are typically based in the United States, I also have clients in Canada, Europe, and Australia.

My experience has taught me one thing ‒ there's no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to business growth. Every company is different, and every industry has its own challenges and opportunities. That's why I take a customized approach with each client, tailoring my services to meet their specific needs.

My goal is always to help my clients reach their goals as quickly and easily as possible. And I believe that with the right strategies and tools in place, anything is possible.

What are your current goals for your business?

My goal is to help my clients achieve their financial goals. I want to help them increase profits, reduce costs, and improve cash flow. In addition, I strive to provide my clients with the knowledge and tools they need to be successful in the long term.

What would you like to achieve for yourself and your business in the future?

I would like to continue helping my clients grow their businesses and achieve their financial goals. In the future, I also hope to expand my business to include more international clients.

Who inspires you to be the best that you can be?

My clients inspire me to be the best that I can be. I am constantly amazed by the dedication and hard work of my clients. They strive to improve their businesses despite challenges and setbacks, and they never give up. Their determination is an inspiration to me.

What is your work inspired by?

My work is inspired by my desire to help small businesses succeed. I believe that small businesses are the backbone of the economy, and I want to do everything I can to help them grow and thrive.

Tell us about your greatest career achievement so far.

One of my greatest career achievements was helping a client increase their profits by 66%. This was a small business owner who was struggling to make ends meet. I was able to help them assess their situation, set goals, and develop a strategy for achieving those goals. The result was an incredible increase in their bottom line.

If you could change one thing about your industry, what would it be and why?

If I could change one thing about my industry, it would be the way that businesses are valued. Too often, businesses are valued solely based on their financial performance. However, there are many other factors that contribute to the success of a business, such as the quality of the product or service, the commitment of the employees, and the strength of the brand. I believe that businesses should be valued based on a holistic approach that takes all of these factors into account.

Tell us about a pivotal moment in your career.

A pivotal moment in my career was when I realized that I could make a real difference in the lives of my clients. I had always known that I wanted to help businesses grow and succeed, but it wasn't until I saw firsthand how my advice and guidance could impact a business that I truly understood the power of what I do. Since then, I have been even more dedicated to helping my clients achieve their goals.

If you could give one piece of advice to aspiring entrepreneurs, what would it be?

The best piece of advice I can give to aspiring entrepreneurs is to remember that authenticity has no competition. When you are true to yourself and your values, you will attract the right people and opportunities. Don't try to be someone that you're not, and don't compare yourself to others. Just be the best version of yourself, and the rest will fall into place.
