Kim came to America in 1975 just after getting married and she recalls, "I had no idea what America was about." She began working in the IT space and in 1995, she founded her first in a series of IT companies. Her interest in entrepreneurship stems from her childhood. "I saw the struggles and suffering my parents had to go through to make ends meet," she says. "That drove me to want to become a successful entrepreneur so that I can support them and help them." Now her Los Angeles-based company I.T. Source is pulling in $3 million a year.
