Gets to the heart of what the challenges are

"Kim worked with me as an executive coach when I first assumed a CEO role. I found her extraordinarily helpful and supportive in that initial stage when everything is different from all you learned that got you the role. Kim is an outstanding listener, and really gets to the heart of what the challenges are. She teaches introspection as a way to understand how to leverage your own strengths and identify what needs to change. She showed me how to see conflict as an opportunity to improve things – and how to identify where change is needed, and where it is not. She helped give me the courage and tools to tackle thorny issues early on – and that made the rest of my time as CEO much more productive and satisfying."


It's been the antidote to over trading

"Trading setups, rules and processes are absolutely critical to success. However, these are useless if one has hidden self-limiting beliefs or self-sabotaging traits. Kim pointed out a path for me to question why I am the way that I am. Just going through that reflective process has made a big difference. I am MUCH more patient and comfortable waiting for those A+ setups-and walking away if they do not present. It's been the antidote to over trading. Thanks to Kim's guidance, personal growth is now a significant, deliberate portion of my trading process. It's about more than money-it's about using trading as a tool to learn broader lessons that have an impact on myself, my family, and potentially anyone I come in contact with. In my view, trading is a fantastic, objective gauge to show evidence that I am making improvements."

Huge difference in my trading

"Kim's small group coaching was such a great experience. I was having some mental roadblocks and through Kim's exercises it truly helped me untangle barriers I was having. Kim has so many tools in her toolbox to help address so many different topics you might be experiencing or need help working on. I have noticed a huge difference in my trading, as well as my personal and career life."

Her actionable insights lead me to success

"Most people will tell you that 90%+ of trading success is mental. Those same people will spend 90% of their time developing strategies without giving much thought to the mental aspect. Is it any wonder most people are not happy with their trading performance? Kim has the right background and a lifelong passion for helping others to be better. I am one of those people. Kim helps me explore areas I need to work on and provides actionable insights. If you are committed to success, take the steps to increase your odds, hire Kim!"

Pulled my trader out of a dangerous slump

When one of my traders went into a long drawn out slump I reached out to Kim for help. The sessions were well worth the investment, as they paid for themself in no time. In just a few weeks she managed to help him get back to consistent profitability. His performance has continued to improve and he is back on track to being a highly successful trader. Perhaps more important were some of the intangible and unexpected benefits. Kim's advice and guidance has been impactful in some very meaningful ways. Over the next few months of coaching he transformed into a new person - his outlook and attitude have never been so positive. My only regret is not starting sooner!"

My win rate improved from 40% to 60%

Kim's work has changed both my trading and personal life. Through our work together I was able to find out more about myself than I ever really have on my own. In trading, as we all know the better you know yourself the better you are able to execute/perform. My win rate improved from 40% to 60% as I began to trade less and make more by focusing on the best opportunities and acknowledging FOMO when it reared its ugly head. All of the trading work and personal work are very intertwined, and my personal life also got better as I was more observant of how I was interpreting/responding to situations and events that occurred in my life.

Rare and Effective

Her strategic vision and big picture thinking are second to none. She is adept at understanding the finance world and human nature. A rare and effective combo. Her knowledge is robust. I recommend her if you are ready to up level personally or professionally."

Mind-blowing Sessions

“Kim was able to put words to a lot of the common frustrations, issues, and emotions that traders deal with … my colleague and I had some mind-blowing sessions with Kim as well as some major breakthroughs.”

Nicholas Tsafos

Strategic Vision and Broad Understanding

"Kim’s strategic vision and broad understanding of people informs her unique approach as an executive coach. She is able to identify the unspoken needs that inform how business is done, thus revealing a clear road map to drive business success without compromising personal fulfillment. I strongly recommend working with Kim and her unique style of coaching if you are ready to take your career and personal satisfaction to the next level."


I now feel more on track in obtaining consistent profitability!

"Getting coached by Kim over the 6 week period was such a big help to my trading! Psychology is 80% the battle and in trading it ultimately comes down to You vs You. Kim pointed me in the right direction to gain control of myself and tame my overthinking brain which was really setting back my trading! I now feel more on track in obtaining consistent profitability!"

Arsenal of Mental Weapons

“I’ve never really believed in therapists or coaches of any kind. I’ve spent my whole life thinking you basically have to cure yourself of your issues. Then I met with performance coach Kim Ann Curtin. I was excited but still reluctant to dive into my personal life with a stranger. I can’t even begin to explain how much value I found in meeting with her. Kim not only made me feel like she was my best friend I could talk about anything with, but she never passed judgment and always had a tool to help me remedy my issues. Within two sessions, I had an arsenal of mental weapons to help me with both my trading issues and my life outside the markets. After meeting with Kim, I felt confident I could remedy my gremlins and grow as a person and a trader.”


My Win Rate Rocketed to 75%

"Not only has my trading turned around, but my life has too. I've been struggling with trading for 2 years and on top of that went through a divorce. My home and work life was in shambles and my stress level had never been so high. I decided to get help in my hope to find relief. Once I started working with Kim, my trading took a 180-degree turn and my win rate rocketed to 75%. I even went on a winning streak of 16 days in a row. My self-confidence has improved and my stress levels have decreased significantly. Thank you, Kim!"

Seeing the Potential in People

“When I reached out to Kim, I was already a very successful executive, in fact on the brink of a promotion, but I still felt my A+ game eluded me and I wanted more time for family. Kim helped me determine how to position my promotion so I could honor both. Additionally having her as a neutral sounding board enabled me to create a solution that had previously eluded me and my peers which our executive team found to be a breakthrough idea. Working with her also facilitated a more powerful interaction with my team, first by helping me to identify their needs and my own, which once met, empowered how we worked together. Kim has an eye and a heart for seeing the potential in people. I highly recommend her.”

Sustaining Success

“The majority of the work that I have been doing is with the help of Kim Ann Curtin. For me, the work has to do with reconciling my feelings about success, feelings about myself and living my best life while I’m ahead and sustaining it.”

Matthew Monaco

My Highest Profit Month (Double My Previous Best)

“Since I started working with Kim, I’ve had my highest profit month (double my previous best). Kim brings out the best in me. We met through a mutual gig where she stood out to me thanks to her endless ideas for improving my team’s current process. I have worked with her as a coach for several months now, and I’m astounded by how she has helped me uncover the ‘dragon in the basement.’ From our first meeting, Kim has helped me improve my confidence so I can forge my own unique path. A pre-interview conversation with her helped me to nail my first interview and land a new job doing work I love. If you need help in your trading journey, career, or personal life, Kim will go above and beyond for you. Coaching is a two-way street, and much will be asked of you, but if you take it on, you’ll see changes in your trading, and your life after the first session."

My Work with Kim Helped to Uncover Blindspots

“As someone relatively new to trading, I sought Kim out for support. For ten years I’ve been a professional poker player, so I understand that trading is a lot like gambling and since I am someone always looking to explore areas where an edge can be found, I’ve done extensive psychological and spiritual work on myself. Kim not only boosted my confidence to continue the path I am on, but my work with her helped to uncover some blind spots. Her gentle guidance has been invaluable to me for my journey to discover my true self. Today, the calmness and serenity I bring to trading — most mornings — is largely due to this genuine, empathic, and intelligent woman.”

Identified Many of My Limiting Beliefs

“I was fortunate to have my company hire Kim as my coach and after working together for six months I couldn’t be happier. Kim was very observant and identified many of my limiting beliefs that I never would have seen on my own. Her guidance extended well past our one-one-one sessions. Her introductions to other resources including techniques to use in my professional and personal life as well as important books continue to serve me. The work I’ve done with Kim will stay with me for the rest of my life.”

Lisa Rangel

Blended Personal and Professional Fulfillment

“I hired Kim to help me expand my growing business and I received so much more than I asked for in hiring her. In a nut shell, not only has my business grown, but with her guidance, I have restructured this growth business to support my life — and not the other way around. My personal life and professional life are no longer compartmentalized. By further defining my values and, with Kim’s encouragement, structuring my business to support my priorities, I now have blended personal and professional fulfillment derived from profitable activities performed in my career management practice. I recommend Kim to any driven professional who wants to find inner fulfillment from their outward achievements.”

Inner Confidence Returned

“I reached out to Kim to fulfill a personal need of defining and re-assessing my 15 year financial career in hopes of finding career fulfillment and a greater sense of bringing my true self to the job every day. Unexpectedly I was laid off from my company and Kim offered me immediate support, guidance and connections to successfully exit a tough situation with pride and a much anticipated outlook for my future. We worked closely together over six months and I was able to attain all of my initial goals and then some. My career aspirations are clear, core strengths identified, inner confidence returned and personal spark is prevalent in all aspects of my life.”

Benefited Tremendously

Concise Breakthroughs

“Kim Ann Curtin worked with one of our most exceptionally appreciated employees whose progress within the company was impeded by her shyness. Keenly aware of how strongly influenced she was by the traditional gender roles of her cultural background, Kim was able to help her make clear and concise breakthroughs. When Kim helped her to recognize her unique cultural perspective as an advantage, confidence emerged from within. Over the course of several months of coaching, the potential we recognized emerged and her value within the company increased.”
