I'm Kat

I’ve been in your shoes, and know how lonely, overwhelming (and expensive!) it can be to learn how to grow a profitable small business. Especially if numbers and tech don't come naturally to you...

I started The Helpful Academy back in 2015 because it's the resource I wish I had when I first started:
Somewhere to make it simple to learn, without having to enrol in a $40,000 MBA! So that my business could fly further, faster.

Fast forward a few years and with the help of other industry experts, we've now launched over 40 business courses and helped over 1000 businesses grow their businesses more effortlessly.

I look forward to sharing what I know to help you and your business profitability FLY!

Between 2015 and when these screen shots were taken in June 2023, we've only ever received 5 star reviews from our students and clients on both Facebook and Google. I don't think many businesses could boast achieving this after being in business for 8 years (and who knows how long it will last for now that I've drawn attention to it because = #InternetTrolls)
