“If you’re in a 9-to-5 job and you are not happy with where you’re at, I can promise you you’re likely underpaid, undervalued, and overworked– and there’s not much you can do about that when you’re not your own boss. I think the pandemic shone a light on what really matters to us, and it’s not just working for somebody else and making a paycheck.” – Amy Porterfield


Today’s guest is Kimberly Williams-Paisley, someone I met decades ago when I was a talent agent. We reconnected a few years ago, but it has been so fun to watch her flourish. What’s amazing about Kimberly is how down-to-earth she is all these years later. She is so giving and her joy is infectious. 

She joined me on the show to talk about her journey with her mom, who was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Aphasia, a rare type of dementia. Kimberly candidly shares her family’s struggles and how she embraced the changes in her mother despite the challenges they all faced. 

We also chat a bit about Kimberly’s acting career and how being famous affected her. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I enjoyed having it.
