A little bit about me…

 
 

MY NAME IS KATELYN.

I help empower female business owners & entrepreneurs by creating an online hub for your business that matches your brand, works FOR you & gives back some freedom & control that you desperately need in your life & business.

I’m a total introvert (but you probably wouldn’t guess that) who loves to read & be at home with my husband & my Hound puppy, Luna.

My favorite things are waking up early (with no alarm), grilled anything, podcasts, audiobooks and building systems to work more efficiently.

I’ve lived in 3 different states in the US (Florida, Georgia & Wyoming), and have traveled to/through about 17 of them with a goal to eventually make it to all of the 50 states & a handful of other countries.

I FIRST GOT THE BUG TO FREELANCE IN 2008.

I was a designer for a small company in south Georgia and my then-boyfriend was away at college in Wyoming. That spring he asked me to come visit for a couple weeks so he could show me #alltheplaces & I jumped on the chance!

AS THE SOLE DESIGNER AT MY OFFICE THOUGH,

I had agreed to sign in & do a few hours of work during the week so things wouldn’t fall too far behind while I was gone. I soon realized I could do a full day’s work in half the time without all the office distractions! WHOA. 😦

After I got back, it wasn’t too long before I got a late night call from my then-boyfriend saying he didn’t want to wait until we graduated to get married after all & I totally agreed! We haaaated being separated! So he flew home, I got a real proposal (on the beach & in the water).

We got married 2 months later, then we moved to Wyoming where I continued working for the same company as an independent contractor, which meant I could work from home!

Of course, I LOVED IT.

I got to set my own hours, wake up without an alarm, didn’t have to get fixed up for work, and still got all the work done.

Then things went south a bit. My company shut down the branch I worked for & let all of us go. Back to square one!

I didn’t have a website, didn’t know how to apply for other remote jobs (or whether they existed), so I focused on my college classes & bounced between a few different 9-5 jobs to help pay our bills.

I never liked the way the corporate culture treated its employees, so I was never as happy as I was working remotely.

The hustle to find new clients was too hard & I didn’t have enough time or skills to do it all.

I’m not the only one who ever struggled with that, but I don’t want that for you!

I want to help you get off that struggle-bus.

Today, you can’t just set up a website on GoDaddy or Wix or Wordpress and expect clients to fall into your lap just because your site exists.

AND WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THEY DID?

  • Can clients book an appointment with you from your site?

  • Can they inquire about your services or get info without asking you directly?

  • Do you find yourself saying the same things over & over again?

  • How much does your website do FOR you?

 
 
 
 

HAVE A SIDE-HUSTLE OR RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS FULL TIME? YOU NEED A WEBSITE TO DO SOME OF THE WORK FOR YOU.

AND you’ll want the freedom that comes with that extra setup effort! (You get what you put in, right? And I never do anything less than 110%, even the dishes.)

 

THAT’S WHY I STARTED OFFERING SQUARESPACE WEBSITE SETUP + DESIGN.

My tendency toward organization & work efficiency will help you get setup with the tools you need to become more successful. BONUS: you’ll be able to keep it updated yourself!

 
 
 
Stop feeling embarrassed.

Let's mark this off your lengthy to-do list.
