mentor + client testimonials


My strategy sessions with Kat have really helped my business. She helped me take a step back and really understand my work from my client's point of view. She helped me ensure that my copy was consistent across my website and social media platforms to make sure I was attracting my ideal client. She also gave me incredibly helpful suggestions for my pricing guide and I was able to successfully book several clients soon afterward. Overall, I loved worked with Kat because she's empathetic and really understands where you are coming from!


Thank you so much, Kat! You are such a huge help. I can see an even bigger picture now. I am going to rewrite some of the business plan, and hope to talk again!
