I specialise in helping you maximise your profitability and sales, enabling you to reach your dream destination faster!

Save time with personalised advice

Focus on what YOU need to achieve

Make it to your dream destination faster


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!

What makes me different from other business coaches is my online academy and my 6 Step In-Flight Profitability Framework®

My online training, templates and calculators allow you to get results faster, and reduce the required investment of working with a  coach - #WinningCombination!!!

Here's my unique way of helping you:

STEP 1. We start with a Profit Detector Service

The Profit Detector Service comes with my signature In-Flight Profit Audit® and a two-hour one-to-one strategy session with me. This powerful combo enables me to quickly become very familiar with your goals and what is/isn't working in your business.

At the end of our two hours together, I will diagnose which of the 3 most common culprits is holding you back from growth, share any quick-wins I've detected, and guide you to the resources to help. 

STEP 2. Once we've detected the problem, we can choose the best Framework for you to follow to take flight

Our easy-to-follow Frameworks become like a GPS, helping you take the shortest flight to your dream destination.

We have 3 signature Frameworks to help you grow your business success more effortlessly:

My 6 Step In-Flight Profit Framework®

This signature Framework helps you build strong foundations to fly further, faster in your business. 

The below Frameworks are extracted from one of these 6 Steps. That's why my 6 Step In-Flight Framework® (Flight Club), is the most cost-effective way to get help with more than one goal, and FLY for the long-haul.

My 5 Step Profit Formula

If the Profit Detector diagnoses you have a profitability problem, my 5 Step Profit Formula is designed to help you improve your profitability within 30 days. 

Implement this Framework via my DIY Profit Formula Course, an 8 Week 1:1 Profit Accelerator Program, or inside Flight Club, depending on your budget and overall goals.

My ‘Sell Without Selling System’

If you're ready to scale your sales results, this is the system for you... Many clients have been able to improve their sales within 24 hours implementing this system.

Implement this Framework with the help of my Sell Without Selling System Courses, other courses and templates, a 12 week 1:1 Sales Accelerator Program, or Flight Club, depending on your budget and goals.

From there, you have options!

That's what makes working with me so flexible and unique compared to other coaches

STEP 3. Choose the combination of training and support perfect for your budget, goal and preferred learning style


Choose one or more of our affordable DIY templates and courses.

Templates start from $17 NZD, Courses start from $67 NZD


Take one or more of my short, done-with-you accelerator programs. These include the templates and training you'll need + a minimum of 8 weeks of 1:1 support from me, to help you achieve lift off.

Accelerator programs start from $1500 NZD


If there's more than one big goal you'd like help with, the most cost-effective way to work with me is usually with my signature program Flight Club. This includes ALL the online training to implement my signature 6 Step Framework, and options for ongoing support.

Flight Club starts from $1800 NZD

working with Kat...

Between 2015 and when the top two 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)
