Own Your Story - An author branding & business course

Katie was so encouraging! She asked insightful questions about our branding and she was constantly pushing us to dig deeper, to get more specific. I highly recommend the Own Your Story course!

Before working with Katie, I had a really good book. Now, I have a fantastic book! I’ve attended conferences and classes on how to write a good book. But nothing compares to having an expert apply all things craft to your personal manuscript!

Katie helped me understand how to focus and fine-tune my social media messaging so I could authentically connect with my ideal reader. It was the missing piece I needed to make sense of all the other social media advice that sounded easy, but was hard to put into action. Thank you, Katie!
