  • Why you DON'T need a huge following to improve your sales, and what to do instead
  • The 5 money metrics every business owner should know about their business

  • How to work with me more closely to achieve your profit goals, and pay yourself what's fair


I'm Kat

The Helpful Academy is the resource I WISHED I had back when I started my business!

I’ve been in your shoes, and know how overwhelming it can be to learn all the different facets to running a business (while still mostly working IN the business)

Now over a decade later, it’s a joy to share all the shortcuts and cheats that I’ve learned with you during my time in business.

What makes me happiest about our Academy, are the transformations that I get to see happen every day inside our online school from our students, because we help them save time and earn more money.

I look forward to getting to know you and your business, and helping you grow your dream too!
