The Heart of Behind Her Brand

For nearly three decades, Kimberly DeShields-Spencer has dedicated her career to empowering women. It all began with a simple yet powerful desire: to hear their stories and create a space where they could grow, heal, and connect authentically.

Kimberly understands the loneliness and imposter syndrome many women feel in the business world. Behind Her Brand offers a remedy, sharing real, unfiltered accounts of women’s journeys – the successes, the setbacks, and the ongoing process of growth. By emphasizing shared experiences, Kimberly creates a powerful sense of community and belonging.

“There’s so much value in the journey,” Kimberly explains. “Behind Her Brand is a safe space where women can see the ups, the downs, and the lessons learned along the way. It’s about celebrating authenticity, helping women realize they’re not alone, and encouraging them to show up honest, show up real.”

A Leader with Impact

Kimberly is more than just the founder of Behind Her Brand – she’s a powerhouse. She leads multiple companies, is a best-selling author, podcaster, and sought-after speaker. Throughout all her ventures, she focuses on empowering women and helping them break down the barriers they face, both internal and external.

“There’s no boring minute” is how Kimberly describes her work. She thrives on the constant influx of new stories, the connections forged, and the impact her platform has on its audience. Behind Her Brand isn’t just a magazine; it’s a safe space for women to be heard, understood, and inspired.

For Kimberly, the magazine is just one piece of the puzzle. She fosters a vibrant community through networking events, workshops, and online webinars. It’s a place where women can come together, share experiences, and learn from each other.

The Power of Print and Purpose

For Kimberly, print is essential. She believes in the tangible power of a magazine, stating that “it has the ability to reach out and touch your audience in ways only print can.” Her commitment to quality fosters a dedicated readership, and she prefers traditional printing for the control it offers. Unlike print-on-demand services, she maintains complete control over marketing and distribution, ensuring her message reaches the right audience. Partnering with PrintingCenterUSA allows her to print her magazines and deliver them directly to select Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, and H-E-B stores, ensuring quality and minimizing waste.

That’s where PrintingCenterUSA comes in. “I found them through a Google search and was drawn to their overwhelmingly positive reviews,” Kimberly recalls. “They print my magazines beautifully and drop-ship them directly to the Barnes & Noble and Books A Million stores I choose. I’ve been with them ever since!” This model gives Kimberly flexibility, saves her time, and allows her to focus on building her community.
