Kim Payne


Kim Payne Founder – 9Rok Consulting Co-founder – 3Genies I've spent the past three decades as a speaker, trainer, business coach, and consultant in financial services. During this time, I've worked with and transformed hundreds of brilliant, educated, high achievers who are chronically under-living. They are longing for fulfillment beyond the traditional measures of success. To be rewarded from the inside out, personal, professional, economic, and emotional. They want to stand in their power, be fully self-expressed, and embrace their calling. To break through the invisible barriers holding them back from being seen, heard, and fully valued. Even as an accomplished expert, they can make a bigger impact with the confidence, competence, and conviction in themselves and all they do. Whether running their own business, leading an organisation, starting out, or advancing their career, much of what gets in the way is fixable. As a professional woman, I've experienced most of these challenges and can turn them into opportunities to succeed. I do it through delivering inspiring keynotes, developing tailored training and group workshops, and privately coaching ambitious professionals. I help them step up, take the lead and be more valuable at work and in life. Professionally I've got a Bachelor of Economics, a Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment, and an Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning. I spent almost 20 years in the corporate world with companies including Credit Suisse First Boston, Citibank, Northumberland Group (in the UK), The Money Managers, and NAB/MLC. Since 2010, I've owned and operated multiple businesses of my own. I started my baseball career at 48, love dancing on stage, a funny home video, or a corny Dad joke. My two energetic, sports-crazy sons are my biggest inspiration, and my mantra for life is "if not now, when?"

The agreement to guilt-free

I’m obsessed with shoes.
And even more obsessed with buying them guilt-free.
In my early thirties, I was single, renting, and climbing the corporate ladder.

Permission to Pursue Happiness

I started my baseball career just before turning forty-eight. I yearned to play the ball game as a young girl, but the school softball team was the closest I got. Baseball was not a popular Australian sport, nor was it an option for girls in the 70's and 80's. And...
