I help corporate burnouts build $100K+ consulting businesses, and I’d like to help YOU design a life & business you love more than a fat kid loves cake.
A startup designer & marketer by trade, I’m just a nerd with an MBA who's helped 100's of entrepreneurs get started and get traction.
In my last career, I helped build a couple dozen tech startups from the ground up, and was a sought-after mentor at business accelerators.
But before that, I was just another corporate burnout dying to escape my life.
I had a perfect-on-paper job that was eating me alive spiritually.
I wanted to create my own hours and build my own legacy - not someone elses.
But I didn't have a clue where to start and I was so.damn.scared.
What if I f**cked it up? What if I failed? What if I died alone, half-eaten by cats..?
I knew I was good at what I did... but I had no idea how to build a business around it.
Ultimately it took me a few attempts, about $15K in mistakes, $80K in student loans and another $20K in coaching to finally get it right.
But I finally beat my corporate salary and made $120K as a freelancer.
Then I started traveling the world as a digital nomad with Remote Year - living and working in 22 countries.
While on the road I met heaps of other talented corporate burnouts who knew they wanted to work for themselves, but had no idea how to start.
And thus, a coaching business, and the idea for the Six Figure Freelancers Accelerator was born.
If you're currently stuck in a corporate job and are dying to get out into your own business, I'd love to help you get started and get to revenue quickly.
Kate's 6 Figure Freelancing program and personal coaching transformed my life and business. Not only did I finally start my company but within 90 days I've already connected with 80 companies and have 10 proposals out valued at $700,000 out.
