Personal Story

I grew up in the South Bronx on welfare. At 18 years old I had a baby out of wedlock (the child later died through drowning at 16 years old). Even though I grew up on welfare, I was determined to take care of myself and my child and refused further public assistance just because I was an unwed mother.

I was determined to never take a handout again and would earn my own way. I worked in Corporate America for many years as an administrative assistant, then moved into commercial real estate management. While in Corporate America I successfully started and ran my own custom framing and art business.

I have always loved business, people and selling, so one of my last self-employment ventures was as a network marketer through a company called Compass, which introduced to the value of coaching. In that venture, I excelled and became one of the top 25 sales representatives in the company and significantly increased the company's revenue as well as my own. In addition, I changed the lives of hundreds of women and fell in love with coaching.

I am the only entrepreneur in my family, but I am trying to share with my nieces and nephews the value and joy of working for yourself.

Business Description

I provide coaching services for business women who struggle with the sales and marketing portion of their business.

I started my full time coaching business in November 2010 right as Compass Coaching (network marketing) closed its doors.

Coaching women business owners provided an opportunity for me to provide a much needed service for my clients and an opportunity for me to earn a profit - both of which I love!

My big challenge is planning and organizing my and my events - my greatest need is for an assistant and a bookkeeper.

My desire is to grow my business to over $100,000 in one year with the help of my coach Carmen Morris while serving my clients in a way which enables them to do the same.

What is the purpose of this loan?

My current goal for my business is to grow to over 6-figures. My gifts and talent for teaching and coaching have been acknowledge by my clients so I know I can change lives of business owners.

I need an assistant who is brilliant in handling details and will keep me on track. She would also enable me to focus on what I do best which is sales and marketing (the lifeblood of the business). I could focus getting more clients and developing additional marketing material and coaching content.

Freeing my time to do what I do best could potentially double my business in the next year.

My 6-figure income would give me the lifestyle and freedom I desire for my self and my family. I would also provide and opportunity for me to work with business owners who can not currently afford my services as well as teach young poor children about what it means to be a business owner.

Tell us about this borrower's business, and why you believe a Kiva Zip loan will contribute to his or her success.

Gail discovered her passion for selling at a very early age selling cookies, candy, greeting cards and any other products she felt people would benefit from. This love of sales continued into adulthood where she started/owned a very successful art and custom framing business for over 12 years uniquely called — Picture This.

Although she loved the picture business she knew there was a higher calling which involved helping, teaching and supporting people. This led her to work with a top network marketing and coaching firm as a sales representative, where she introduced “everyday women” to the value of personal coaching. This was the birth of Gail Campbell Coaching, a business she just started with the mission to provide the resources and tools that will help women become sales superstars and successful entrepreneurs.
