Kim Ford is the creator/publisher of JubileeMag.com. She’s also a speaker and the author of “The Success Mindset: How To NOT Give Up After A Huge Setback”.
While publishing JubileeMag.com, Kim has covered events such as the BET Awards, Soul Train Awards, Dove Awards, Trumpet Awards, Stellar Awards and more. She has interviewed some of the red carpets biggest stars such as Tyler Perry, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Kevin Hart, Meagan Good, DeVon Franklin, Anthony Anderson, Magic Johnson, La La and Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Costner, Jada Pinkett Smith, Deitrick Haddon, Michelle Williams, Erica Campbell, Tyrese, Steve Harvey as well as many others.
She also covers private film and television screenings in conjunction with Sony Pictures, Warner Brothers, BET, TVOne, WEtv and many others.
“It’s time we re-build the image of faith to the world. What people want is love, truth and results, not just a church service. JubileeMag.com is here to show them all three.”
Kim has counseled and ministered to hundreds of men and women across the country. Although her wisdom impacts individuals of all ages, she specializes in speaking to 18-49 year olds.
“This is the time when you make decisions that will affect the rest of your life. School choices, identity, friendships, relationships, career choices, marital and parenting decisions are typically made between 18-49. If you want a good life, you have to make wise decisions. If people don’t know how to make wise decisions, we have to teach them God’s way of doing things… which is love.”
In March 2107, her online mag was nominated for Media Publication of the Year. In 2103 it was nominated as “Best Faith-Based Mag” and was voted as “Independent Mag of the Year” in 2010. In February 2016, Kim was honored as one of Atlanta’s Phenomenal Women.
Kim has made several in-studio appearances at Radio One on The Willie Moore Jr. Show sharing life tips and giving the inside scoop on major red carpet events. She’s also appeared on Lifetime TV’s The Rap Game, where she was invited by music mogul Jermaine Dupri to critique his new cast of talent on the show.
Kim’s passion reaches deeper than red carpet events, covering big film premieres and even interviewing some of entertainment’s biggest celebrities. Her strongest gift is helping women overcome life’s obstacles.
As the mother of a millennial daughter and a pre-teen son, Kim knows what it’s like to balance the role of single-mom and entrepreneur while also pursuing her own dreams. She has overcome many setbacks and disappointments, but decided to let it make her better instead of bitter.
Kim expanded her brand to offer online courses about personal development and media (in front of the camera and behind the laptop) by launching Kim Academy. On the site you can pre-order her book, take her masterclasses, watch her webinars, and buy products.
Whether she’s on the red carpet or pouring into the lives of women, Kim has chosen to be the light someone needs to keep going, no matter where they come from or what they’ve been through.
