Okay, it’s time for another case study update! You can read the “Getting Started” post here. It breaks down the first questions I always ask my coaching clients and how I answered them as Katharine Marie Weddings.
For today’s post I want to update you on what I’ve been doing on both the marketing and admin sides of the business and where I stand on my goals. Read More
We aren’t clowns so we don't have to live in a circus. Yes, our lives will always be busy (why do we always default to that description of our lives?), but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a sense of balance and normalcy to our lives.
In my opinion, getting your priorities in order helps balance out the scales of life and while creating routines allow you to function when life gets extra "busy". When you actually prioritize your commitments and items on your to-do lists, balance beings to become a reality. Read More
Working for yourself at home can seem really exciting when you dread going into your day job. But ask anyone who currently works from home and you’ll discover that it’s not all champagne, roses, and cha-chings. Running a business takes a lot of work and it honestly doesn’t matter if you’re a business to business or a business to consumer model. There’s a lot of things around the house to distract you and a lack the accountability that comes from working in an office for someone else. This post is going to get a little saucy but also provide you with ways you can be successful at home. Read More
One thing I heard (and still hear) so much from entrepreneurs was that they had family and friends who were NOT supportive of their business ventures. I did not (and have not) ever experience this when I started my business. As I look back over this last year I wanted to figure out why. Most of it has to do with my family being so entrepreneurial in general, and how my parents raised us, but I think there are some other things that I've done that have played into this as well. This post gets real honest towards the end, but I hope you also find it encouraging. Read More
Here's the thing that I think trips up most entrepreneurs...or should I say the ones who work from home - our schedules. Most of us had to be at school by at least 8:15am for years (1st-12th grade), then some of us went to college and got to choose our own schedule, and then we may have started out working a 9-5. My last job started each week with staff meetings and had 2 monthly large office meetings. I had bosses I reported to and clear objectives for each week. But then all that changed. Read More

When my first client hired me in March of 2016, I had no idea that in August I would be handing in my two weeks notice and be running The Social Walker Agency full time that September. No idea. What started as a way to learn the world of online business (after my first attempt in 2015 failed), quickly became something altogether different. In the video at the bottom of this post you’ll find the first three things I recommend doing in order to start your business. But today, I want to break down a few other areas to help you kick-start your business. Read More
Creating a work-life balance as entrepreneur is hard. Creating that balance when you work from home is even harder. But it IS possible. It takes a few strategies and some determination to get you there. Let's get started! Read More
I had already planned on writing this post with the overall same idea, and then Nicole from Nicole in Bold gave me the idea to focus more on the personal trainer side of it than just the OTF color zones. The video is a brief overview of today's blog, and the blog goes more in-depth with strategies and ways you can implement them. For me, accountability plays a huge role in my life and in my business.
