Create and grow a beautiful business

With over 20 years of business management experience working for film makers, architects and designers, Kate offers business coaching for small business owners. Kate now offers two options – one-to-one business coaching or the small business group mentoring program for women.

A business coach can help you to:

  • Develop a vision for your business and create a plan for achieving your goals.
  • Establish a positive mindset around making money.
  • Overcome the sense of overwhelm that often occurs in the early days.
  • Identify your ideal client and learn how to get your message out there authentically.
  • Create systems that will free up your time so you’re not at your desk until midnight.
  • Develop a simple but workable marketing plan and the confidence to sell without being ‘salesy’.
  • Understand your unique strengths (and what you really should be delegating).
  • Network in a way that will make you comfortable.
  • Balance being creative with the boring parts of running a business (like managing cashflow).
  • Create a business that is profitable.
  • Balance business and life.

Who are your programs for?

Our business coaching and small business mentoring programs are for women who have started or would like to start their own creative or wellness business. You’ll get the most from this program if you’re:

  • interested in creating a small business that has some ‘soul’ in it.
  • the kind of person who values relationships as much as making a profit.
  • someone who is hoping to make a positive difference in the world.
  • willing to put in the work in order to make your business succeed.

How does it work?

We start with a single introductory one hour session. After your initial session, Kate will recommend the best way forward. For some clients, one or two sessions will suffice and for others, a three or six month program will be best.

Sessions are held either in-person at Kate’s home office in Elsternwick or via Skype or Facetime.

Six month program

6 x 60 minute sessions to clarify your business and marketing plan, identify your ideal clients, identify your key strengths, create systems to streamline the business, explore options to grow or simplify your business and build self-belief and confidence. Includes telephone and email support between sessions, access to resources and worksheets and referrals to our preferred suppliers.
