A tenacious and creative thinker, Kim negotiates with programmers and content providers throughout the entertainment industry to find innovative ways to provide consumers access to more content on a variety of platforms and devices. While she identifies success in the workplace as being part of a respectful team that provides unparalleled legal service with integrity, outside the office she considers success a state of being: “[It’s] having confidence in the sound of one’s own voice, and being true to that voice, not just in good times but also in the face of failure.”

How do you define success?
In the workplace, I have a more concrete measure for success: do I and my team provide unparalleled legal service to the company with integrity and respect for each other?

Instead, “success” is a state of being: having confidence in the sound of one’s own voice, and being true to that voice, not just in good times but also in the face of failure.
