I Love Helping New Founders Grow

Build your company faster, while feeling clear, confident and focused.

Hey There, New Entrepreneur!

I bet you’re freaking out right about now, aren’t ya?

You didn’t exactly *plan* to be an entrepreneur.

It just sort of happened…

There you were, sitting around being awesome when

-> *WHAM!* <-

…some amazing idea popped into your head, or landed in your lap… and you just can’t shake it (no matter *how* hard your procrastinate or try to avoid it).

So, Now You’re An Entrepreneur…

And some days, you’ve like, “I’VE TOTALLY GOT THIS!”

Things are flowing, you’re gonna be a Capital B Billionaire on the cover of Forbes magazine.

Other days, you forget to feed yourself, notice you put your shirt on inside out and you waste four-hours digging in your Gmail archives to find the login details for that software program you just HAD to have a couple weeks ago and haven’t done anything with.

Is this really what success looks like? Do *all* founders feel like this?

Here’s the good news, AND the bad news.

All of these feelings are completely normal for new entrepreneurs.

But… with the right support system and the right mindset, you can spend more time in your zone of genius and spend less time hiding from your team or creatively procrastinating on that big, hairy, audacious goal.

You’ll make better decisions, trust yourself more, be able to adapt quicker and spend more time feeling confident and competent.

A Confident Founder Is…

… an inspiring leader
…a fearless champion
…a present parent
…a loving partner
…a good friend
…a trustworthy CEO
…a fiscally responsible CFO
…a creative CMO
…a financially free business owner

Okay, I like the sound of this, you say…

But HOW!?

How do I scale without destroying what we’ve built?

HOW do I have more impact without working myself to the bone?

How do I hire the right people and trust them to love this business as much as I do?

How do I grow into a leader when all I really want to do is create cool stuff?

First off, STOP worrying.

You’re allowing the Tyranny of How to get in the way of your ability to change the world.


Everything is figure-out-able.

And that’s what I’m here to help you with.

When you work with me, you’ll stay focused on your WHY…

  • Why you want to change the world
  • Why you need to build THIS company
  • Why you must make this dream a reality
  • Why it’s important to create YOUR legacy..
  • Why you DESERVE to be rich and enjoy the fruits of your efforts…

And I’ll guide you through HOW and WHAT to do next.

All you have to do is remember your WHY and know you CAN do this.

I’ve spent the last 10 years helping entrepreneurs build companies, as a designer, marketer and coach.

My passion is  helping new founders grow faster, while feeling more confident and focused.

As a founder myself, I know how hard it can be… How isolating and scary and OVERWHELMING.

I’d love the opportunity to support you in bringing your vision to life, whether that means being part of Fast Company’s Most Visionary Companies or just being able to serve your dream clients and work from your living room, sans pants.

And if you’re not entirely sure what you want, that’s OKAY. I can help you get clear about that too.

You can rest assured you’re creating a legacy you’ll be proud of, while creating the life you want.

I’ve worked with more than 50 startups as a designer, marketer, product manager, strategist, analyst and advisor and have helped 100’s of entrepreneurs grow their businesses.

Regardless of your industry or the size of your dream, I can help you move forward faster.

If you’re ready to take control of your business and let go of the fears and old habits holding you back from actually *enjoying* this wild entrepreneurial ride, I’d love to help you create a World-Class Business in perfect alignment with your PERSONAL desires.


What People are Saying

“Best Business Coach EVER…”

“In a one hour meeting with Kate, I went from feeling like I had NO idea how to start my business to having a fully laid out plan, and more importantly, full confidence I could do it.”

Vanessa Loney, Blue Ribbon Events, Philadelphia

“Kate is a phenomenal coach and cheerleader. ”

Work With Me

One-on-One Coaching

You’re not going to let a little form scare you away from building your dream, are you?

It’s only a formality, so don’t take it so seriously. I only work with 5 private coaching clients at a time so we gotta make sure we vibe, right?

After reviewing your application, if it sounds like a good match, you’ll be invited to book a consultation to discuss my programs and make sure we got together like peas & carrots.

If it’s not a match, I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction.

I look forward to helping you grow.
