Here’s a sneak peek at Kate’s interview with InWeekly:
What makes your job 'click' for you?
What drives me every day is being able to help people live easier, more enjoyable lives. Life is too short not to enjoy it while also making an impact. I am so grateful for the opportunity to help others create more impact while operating in their zone-of-genius.
What's the best advice you've ever been given?
"Give yourself grace." As an entrepreneur, we grind, push, and hustle to "make it" yet we forget to give ourselves grace. We are human, we make mistakes, and we need breaks. Grace is the most important form of self-care.
Tell us about the best/most rewarding project you've ever worked on.
Increasing one of my clients' revenue by $1.6M has been one of my favorite and most rewarding experiences. By streamlining their processes and making their team more efficient at their core we also gave the CEO and COO an opportunity to step away from daily operations to focus on growth.
What keeps you in Pensacola?
Like many people, I took time to reevaluate my situation during 2020 and chose to relocate my business headquarters to Pensacola permanently. The gorgeous beaches, collaborative entrepreneurial spirit, and iced honey lattes literally make my new home feel like paradise.
