Hi, I’m Kate, a freelance product designer and former business coach.
I haven’t had the time/energy to update this website properly so you may be confused as to how you got here or find some broken links, but I hope you’ll forgive me.
See, way back in 2017 I wrote a book outlining how to get started as a freelancer, which became a coaching program and course called Six Figure Freelancers and I set out to help as many people as I could find more freedom and make more money freelancing.
Things were going great – the course got picked up by AppSumo, I was invited to join the Forbes coaches council and I had over 3000 people join my coaching programs or buy the book. I did guest spots on dozens of podcasts, created an insane amount of content on the blog, hired a social media manager, and was prepping to scale my sidehustle into a proper business. Like, with employees and everything.
Then, I got Covid.
I developed long-term health issues and found I no longer had the physical or mental energy to continue coaching or managing a big online program. Social media? Ugh, no energy for that so I deleted those. Managing employees and contractors? OMG can’t deal.
So back to freelance design I went.
I’m now back to good health most of time but I realized I’m happier sitting behind a screen designing cool stuff than I was being “an influencer.” I’ve gotten to work with some great clients in the last few years like Microsoft, Harvard University, Etsy, Medable, Sylvan Learning and Compass.com – but as a freelancer most days I don’t even have to bother getting dressed, and I like that.
Long story short, I’m no longer taking on coaching clients and this website needs a major update but I really just can’t even tackle that right now so instead you get this weird letter.
