Skills Aren’t What’s Holding You Back from
Building a Six-Figure Business…

You already have them in spades.

As a mid-level professional, you’re already at the top of your game. You’ve worked on big projects and had massive wins…

Your boss loves your work. And so do your corporate clients. Yet, something big is missing from your work life.

You feel that:


There are more fulfilling and enjoyable ways to spend some of your best years than 40+ hour weeks in an office


You could double or triple your productivity without constant Slack messages or Zoom meetings


You’re tired of evenings and on your days off and evenings - vacation? Forget it!

Instead of doing the work you love to do, you spend most of your time in meetings.

Where little to nothing ever seems to get accomplished.

And when it does…

Your most creative ideas get nixed, because your company always wants to play safe.

Living this way is sapping the life out of you. So you try to dull your pain in some unhealthy ways.

Maybe your antidote to a work life you hate is your nightly half-bottle of red.

Or a bag of Cheetos. Endlessly scrolling Facebook. Or shopping online for stuff you don’t really need or even want.

All you know is that you need to shut your brain off from the misery.

Emotionally, you’re hollow. Your eyes are dead. Your shoulders are in a permanent slump.

This Was Me in 2014

My name is Kate Bagoy. And this was my story not so long ago.

Soon after accepting a “dream job” with a Silicon Valley startup I realized that it was more of a nightmare.

I wasn’t doing the work I love – design. Instead, all my time was spent in meetings.

And then there was the office politics. Tiptoeing around the boss’ favorites. The ass-kissing. The stolen ideas where I got zero credit.

Even worse? My office was a trailer sandwiched in between other trailers. Looking out the window was like looking out into a corporate armageddon.

No wonder that my drive, my spirit, and my ambition withered away a little more every day.

The money? It was good – very good.

But it just wasn’t enough on its own.

So I quit my job without a real plan – and grabbed whatever low-paying gig I could.

It didn’t take long to start falling behind financially. Even worse…

I become just another commodity, up for grabs by the highest bidder. Which was ridiculous with my skill set!

I mean I had that skills to land a six-figure job at a Silicon Valley startup, so why wasn’t I thriving on my own?

Actually, there was a massive reason why.

Here’s What Really Holds Most Aspiring Entrepreneurs (Especially Women & Creatives!) Back

This is exactly what held me back.

And I’ll bet that it’s what’s holding you back too.

I had the mindset of an employee. Not a business owner.

And if you have that mindset when you start your freelance business…

You’re almost doomed to fail.

You’ll feel like an impostor who doesn’t measure up, despite your amazing skills.

It makes you hesitate to go after your dream clients…

Because in the back of your mind, there’s that nagging voice, “What if I fail?”

What hangs over you is the awful realization if this doesn’t work, you’ll have to find another soul-crushing, mind-numbing J-O-B.

So how do you make the mindset shift from employee to business owner when you:


Don’t have any actual business experience


Have always worked as an employee


Are afraid of failing...but just as afraid that you might actually succeed?

For me, it took a long plane ride to Singapore for the switch to flip.

Suddenly, I Knew This Wasn’t What I Was Meant to Do Forever

After I washed out during my first go at building a freelance business, I took a job at another start up. This time, the job was more aligned with my values, and I actually enjoyed it.

But after about 18 months, the familiar burnout and fatigue set back in. I needed a break.

So I packed my bags for a vacation to Bali and Cambodia, desperately hoping I’d get my mojo back.

Although there were many things about my job that I loved, in my heart I knew this wasn’t what I was meant to do with my life.

So I started to think about going on my own again. But I knew I had to approach things a lot differently.

My choice of reading material for that trip was the catalyst I needed to figure out what I wanted and needed to do with my life.

And that was “The Four-Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferris.

As I read the book, it dawned on me that my freelance goals were wishy-washy.

Sure I wanted my own business and to make good money.

But don’t all freelancers want that, too?

Something just clicked as I read that book.

I realized that:


There was no reason I needed to be in an office, or look out at the four walls of a cubicle


I didn’t need to work 40-hours a week for the rest of my life


There was no reason wait to really LIVE, praying that someday I’d have enough in a mediocre retirement plan

My real problem?

I didn’t really know WHY I wanted my own business…or WHAT I wanted it to look like…or WHO I wanted to serve.

And until I got clear on those things, no amount of conventional wisdom on how to start a business was going to help.

That’s why I hadn’t succeeded before.

The Only Rules and Limits That Exist are Those You Set for Yourself

The book was the catalyst in my decision to start over again…and this time I didn’t give myself the option of failure.

It was time to make some decisions.

I decided I was:


Starting a business, not just grabbing onto work thrown my way


Worth investing in, so was going to find the training and resources I needed to build my business


Going to focus on who I wanted to serve, instead of chasing clients who were looking for a one-off project at the lowest price


Willing to do whatever it took to be successful

This change in mindset was pivotal for me… and where things really started to click into place.

The right choices matter. And nearly everything in life is a choice.

So often, I talk to people who claim to want to start a freelance business but fail repeatedly.

It’s not because they don’t want it.

It’s not because they can’t do it.

Now, I’ve built a business where I get to work with my type of people: entrepreneurial, creative, and non-traditional.

I’ve found my tribe, one where “that’s just how it’s always been done” is never the answer.

Are You Searching for a Big Ol’ Life Change, Too?

I’ve got a secret for you.

After helping out tons of other people to build six-figure freelancing, coaching, and consulting businesses, I’ve realized one thing.

A traditional step-by-step business plan isn’t what you need to succeed.

Making the mindset shift you need to succeed as a business owner is probably the hardest thing you’ll face in building your six-figure freelancing, coaching, or consulting business.

And it’s not your fault.

Most of us are taught growing up that we should get a good education, then look for a job that comes with a decent paycheck. Entrepreneurship is rarely taught in school, so we have employee mindsets…

That’s why so many of us feel out of our league when we step out on our own. So it’s no wonder that so many of us struggle to build businesses!

And it’s not because there is a lack of info out there on the nuts and bolts of creating and executing a business plan. There is tons of free information out there on the internet and YouTube.

Business is a mindset game, and many people new to freelancing or coaching (especially women) don’t get that at first.

I didn’t either.

But once I figured out the rules (with the help of an MBA) then I became unstoppable.

And I can help you make the mindset shift you need to thrive as a freelancer, coach, or consultant too.

Just these successful business owners:

Kate helped me take my business from an idea to an actual money-making venture! Her guidance in-person and through her book and lessons are invaluable. If you’re thinking about starting your own business, you need to start with Kate!

– Ashley Bachman, Copywriter & Entrepreneur

For me it was a great decision enabler to undertake the 6FF course… The book presents you with sample exercises that give you an idea how stimulating the full course will be. Great Bu!

– Moti S., Business Analyst & Consultant

I just finished my MBA specializing in entrepreneurship (woo hoo!) but even so found this to be full of wonderful wisdom. I think it is a goldmine of practical tools set up logically and led by Kate’s step-by-step guidance founded on years of experience.

– Chantelle Collins, Social Media Strategist

Are you ready for the same mindset transformation for your own freelancing, coaching or consulting business?

I put together an easy to follow success blueprint for anyone who’s tired of the workplace grind, and ready to start living their ideal life…

Filled with ‘a-ha!’ moments, visualization exercises, and hard-won wisdom straight from the trenches.

What Would Creating Your Dream Business Be Worth to You?

I know when I was stuck in a cubicle feeling miserable, I would have paid almost anything to get out.

In fact, I actually invested time and money in an MBA as part of my escape plan.

A simple step-by-step blueprint that addressed the mindset issues and lack of marketing knowledge that held me back in building a business.

If I had access to a blueprint like that, I would have saved two years of my life and money that I could have invested in building the business of my dreams.
