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:
Here’s the thing…
This entrepreneurial journey? The work of going after those joy-filled, rebellious callings, of wrestling with the perfectionism and the procrastination, of taking brave, aligned action in the face of self-doubt and uncertainty?
Well, it’s not for the faint of heart.
And showing up as your most brave self, articulating your dream and stepping into actually doing the thing you’ve held in your heart for so long — it can feel incredibly vulnerable.
What if it doesn’t work? What if people judge me? What if it’s not enough? What if I’m not enough?
I’ve been there, friend. I’ve had those exact same doubts. And I’ve found that the best way to move through them is to come back to center, find your truth, work with a trusted soul to lay clear your path forward, and (hands shaking, knees wobbly) keep. showing. up. Take the next, right step - and then another. Do the brave thing. Then do the brave thing again.
That’s why I’ve created a free gift 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 step, build that muscle o' bravery, and then move forward.
