Kim Zolciak is adding yet another job to her already impressive resume. The star of Bravo's "Don't Be Tardy" was recently forced to drop out of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" after suffering a mini stroke on Sept. 24, but she's not letting that hold her back. Just three weeks later she has announced yet another exciting new business venture.
Kim, 37, has reportedly begun a career as a motivational speaker. As was reported by Reality Tea, she announced via Instagram that she would be launching a 20-city speaking tour, which kicks off in Atlanta, Georgia. In her post she shared with fans that she was inspired to get into motivational speaking by them, saying their comments and emails provided her with the push she needed. The mother of six said she enlisted the help of a coach named Angie, who she claims "taught me all I know."

The "Don't Be Tardy" star got her start doing speaking engagements during Season 4 of her Bravo reality show. In episode 6 she was asked to deliver a speech as a part of the Atlanta Women's Expo. She was terrified, but agreed to participate. Despite her initial reluctance, the speech went off without a hitch.
Kim has been outspoken about her disappointment with being forced to quit "DWTS." Days after suffering from a transient ischemic attack (TIA), which caused her to lose sensation in the entire left side of her body as well as the ability to speak, she and partner Tony Dovolani were back in the studio practicing their routine. Just before they were slated to perform their new dance, the network made a shocking announcement claiming the rules of the competition clearly stated that Kim and Tony, 42, would have to withdraw.
