As I walked through the doors of the Wilkes-Barre THINK center, I saw nobody under the age of 21, and my heart immediately dropped. While roaming around looking at the faces of intelligent business women, I realized that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. This was the moment when I knew my life was about to begin.

I met three different, incredible business women from around the Wilkes-Barre Area: the creator of Building Blocks Learning Center, the founder of RAE SLEEVES, and the founder of Brighter Journeys. I was honored to meet these professionals and learn about their business experiences. The woman who truly caught my attention was the speaker of the night, Kim Kaupe. This brilliant woman is the co-founder of a multi-million business called The Superfan Company. The Superfan Company, according to their LinkedIn, “is a collective of pop-culture enthusiasts creating powerful programs and products that engage superfans.” She and her co-founder Brittany Hodak became well-known due to their appearance on the popular T.V. show “Shark Tank,” in which four judges make decisions and offers on new business ideas presented by ordinary people. Kaupe’s business was established seven years ago, and it remains successful today.

Kaupe presented the crowd with ingenious tips on how to be a successful business woman and how to perceive the work of business. However, the best part was her amazing personality.  She was such a humble yet hilarious woman. It’s possible to sit for hours listening to her speak and still be intrigued. The Super Fan Company business was started by Kaupe and Hodak after they had come up with the idea over coffee. Such a simple conversation has turned into an unbelievably huge multi-million dollar company.

Kaupe and Hodak hit one million dollars in revenue within their first year of being in business. Kaupe and Hodak have also had the fascinating accomplishment of being in the #1 business magazine Forbes at the thriving young age of 28. Kaupe and her best friend turned co-founder have accomplished so many amazing things in the world of business. Hearing their story helped inspire me to do the same in my future.
