Kate K. McCarthy

Hey there, sweet friend.

I’m Kate K. McCarthy, mentor, community builder, writer, and fresh-air enthusiast.

I’m a former non-profit-lifer turned creative entrepreneur who’s obsessed with helping creatives (like you!) build braver brands and businesses, navigate the mess and the magic of the entrepreneurial journey, find (or create!) their community of like-hearted humans, and really show up - for their businesses, for their people, and, most importantly, for themselves.

This space is dedicated to deep connection, soul-soaked courage, creative real-talk, and unapologetic self-expression. Welcome.

Let’s take this thing to the next level, friend. Here’s how:


We launched a website, created a product,
and doubled our subscribers.

We would be LOST without Kate. We found her at just the right time (thank you, universe!). With her help, we revamped our business entirely. Now, it feels authentic, genuine, and real to us - it actually feels GOOD.

While working with her, we launched a website, created a product, and doubled our subscribers! We’ve never been so confident and clear on our next steps. We’ve been able to communicate our story authentically and vulnerably, and we have Kate to thank.

If you are even remotely considering working with Kate, DO IT! You, and your future clients, will be so grateful you did.
— Shannon and Jessica Marshall, Owners at Your Velveteen Life
