May 18, 2021

In this episode, Heather interviews Kizzy Parks, Ph.D., CEO of KPC, GovCon Winners, AmPar, AdultFluent, and Host of the AdultFluent℠ podcast. Her newest company GovCon Winners works to help small businesses win profitable government contracts. 

She is charismatic, honest, and compassionate in this episode, where she shared the times in her career when she wasn’t the best leader. She states that at times she was leading from a space of scarcity and less than - which was not productive for her or her company. Now she leads from a place of compassion and has implemented new strategies to ensure that her employees get treated the most fairly. 

Kizzy shares that her entrepreneur journey began when she was just a kid when she would resell golf balls she found to fund her love for FUNYUNs and Nutty Bars. She knew from a young age that she would be an entrepreneur. Today, her companies have over $50 million in government contract rewards.
