My Story – From Burnout to Business Owner
Quit Without a Plan
So burnout from my corporate job that the best I could manage after work was a microwave meal washed down with a bottle of Pinot, I quit my job without a plan.
Caught the Startup Bug
After earning my MBA, I moved to Silicon Valley to work as a startup product manager. The valley wasn’t a fit, but I’ve been working with startups + entrepreneurs since!
First Business Failure
After leaving The Valley, I started freelancing but had no idea what I was doing and had to go back to corporate jobs 3-times before I hired a business coach and got my shit in order.
Fresh on the tails of failing at business, I took a 9-to-5, short-sold my home and moved into a friends basement. Realizing my drinking wasn’t helping, I went into recovery + became a personal growth junkie.
Second Business Failure
I co-founded a data-visualization startup and got to participate in the Portland Seed Fund. Alas, we didn’t get traction and I couldn’t work for free anymore so I had to get yet-another-job.
A Spiritual Experience
On the edge of burnout again, I took a solo trip to Bali, Cambodia + Singapore. I read the 4-Hour Workweek on the plane, and at Angkor Wat I had a spiritual experience – I decided then I would travel more and help others live their best lives.
Going Location Indie
After getting permission to work remotely, I briefly dabbled as a digital nomad then moved across country to Savannah, GA by myself, quit my job and started my 6-figure freelance business.
Joined (+ Left) Remote Year
In January I set out to travel the world for a year with 70+ other crazy folks. I left the program but have continued to travel, living and working in 18 countries in the last 2 years. I built my coaching practice, created Six Figure Freelancers and made friends around the world. Because there is never too much growth, I also attended Business Mastery & Date with Destiny with Tony Robbins, the Millionaire Mind Intensive and nearly a dozen other global professional events.
Cofounded Travelpreneur Tribe
One of the amazing people I met this year became a business partner and we’re currently planning startup retreats around the world in 2019. Join us & kickoff your business with me!

It didn’t take Kate long to push me forward & build momentum. I wish I’d met her years ago.Maxime DeBlue
Kate is absolutely amazing at what she does! Her coaching feels like talking to a friend you’ve known for years. She’s helped me identify the “why” in starting my business, which has given me the confidence in securing/knowing my ideal client.Vanessa Loney
The content helped me immensely. I was able to find clarity as to what is holding me back and what exactly I want. I feel inspired that I can actually make this happen.Anonymous
