“Who you are today . . . that’s who you are. Be brave. Be amazing. Be worthy. And every single time you get the chance? Stand up in front of people. Let them see you. Speak. Be heard. Go ahead and have the dry mouth. Let your heart beat so, so fast. Watch everything move in slow motion. So what. You what? You pass out, you die, you poop? No. (And this is really the only lesson you’ll ever need to know.)”

// Shonda Rhimes //


Bravery is the place where scary and exciting meet.

It’s the tightening, the butterflies in your stomach, and still showing up.

It’s grounded assuredness and a quickening heart rate, standing a little straighter and stepping into your strongest, most courageous self.  

It’s the knowing, deep inside, that what you want - to create, make, share, transform - is possible, inevitable even, if only you keep moving forward, keep showing up, keep taking one courageous step at a time.

By your very nature, you are brave.

Entrepreneurship, by definition, involves risk-taking, facing your fears, and doing it anyway.

You were born for this.


This August 29th through 31st, join us for #abraverbrand, a collective social movement over on Instagram that’s all about building braver brands and businesses with three days of courageous visibility, soul-soaked community, and deliberate, authentic action.

While this round of the #abraverbrand movement has come to a close, sign up for my Brave Notions to be among the first to know when #abraverbrand returns - and get soul-drenched loved letters, heart-stirring reminders, stories of strength and celebration, special podcast episodes created just for you delivered straight to your email inbox.

The human behind #abraverbrand.

Hi, friend! If we haven't had the chance to meet quite yet, hello! Let's fix that, shall we? I'm Kate K. McCarthy (but you can call me Katie, all my friends do!), business + brand mentor for soulful + creative entrepreneurs. 

I'm on a mission to help creative entrepreneurs (like you!) build braver brands and businesses. To help you hone in on that next big, brave thing (in a safe, supportive, and expertly-held container), get clear on your next right steps, build that muscle o' bravery, pivot as necessary, and then continue to move forward.

And celebrate. We do a lot of celebrating 'round these parts.

I'm so grateful that you've found your way here. Don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything I can do to support you!
