Branding Self

I am learning what it means to Brand.

Recently, I have been working on a business venture/opportunity.

I have become a health and lifestyle coach. As a former ballet dancer turned mom, with a passion for helping equip people to live exceptionally, this has been an awesome journey. I have loved expanding myself in this field. I have however, had difficulty figuring out website designs and programs and logo’s. I have come to learn and see that I am not creating the company Coached By Kate but, I am branding and marketing my very own self.

With that in mind, I have really been thinking about how I present myself to the world every day. Image presenting and branding of individuals is not a new thing. I however am touching on it in many new ways and it has been eye opening.

Am I joyful? Do I dress for the success I’m wanting on a daily basis ? Am I branding myself as an individual who loves like Christ loves?

As someone who works from home it is easy to just throw on the yoga pants and go. But I can see a diffrence in how I manage even my toddlers tantrums when I am better “dressed” for the day. This includes my attitude, my wardrobe, and my heart.

Getting up early and preparing myself for my day in all these aspects has been something I have been lacking in doing and boy can I tell a difference! I don’t have the energy, I don’t feel prepared, I am definatly not presenting my best foot forward. I don’t accomplish half what I could when I am dressing better. when I’m dressing for success.

I blogged on the subject of “dressing for success” early on in my musings and it is just as relevant now. When we don’t give ourselves the time to meditate, put on make-up, and throw on a scarf instead of the yoga ensemble we cheat ourselves of what could be.

In the next few posts I’m going to dive deep into some of these thoughts. For now, let’s just think about what we are doing to present our best selves to the world.

-Are you getting up and dressing for success?

-Do you know what image you want to portray to the world?

-Are you preparing for success in the role you are assigned for today? (whether its mom, entrepreneur, girlfriend, wife, sister, or coach)

-If you were to dress as if you were a “rockstar” in your role what would that look like?

You are a cast member in a bigger story line that Christ is weaving.

-Are you choosing to be a lead role or an extra?

True Love

My husband’s thoughts on ture love. I couldn’t have posted it better!

Love is in the air with Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching!  Grab those roses, gifts that come in small boxes, and reservations for those sold out restaurants.  But before getting swept up in the emotions of the weekend I wonder if we can touch on this topic of love.

If you are married you probably think you have a grasp on this… or at least you do a pretty good job at it.  Sure, we can make our spouses feel loved, appreciated, important, valued and choose to be a servant leader in the relationship.  We can prove our commitment and dedication by being a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual partner – sharing in the natural ups and downs of life and being a source of strength.  While this is extremely important and should be your highest prioritized relationship after Christ, I wonder if we adopt this same effort and attitude towards…

Coached By Kate


Recently, I have had the privilege of starting something pretty exciting. As I have jumped from ballet dancer and dance teacher to a full fledged “stay-at home” mom I have had time to think about the “what next”. To further see what God has placed in store for me.

As far as I can tell we all have only one life to live. I want to make the most of what I’ve been given.

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough” – Mae West

So I have decided to become a Lifestyle Coach. I help people create and implement the vision they have for their life. It is not just the dreaming of great things but the doing of them. It is now within reach of accomplishing.
Just like the people who push athletes to greatness in sports, life and wellness coaches (myself) push their clients to find success and satisfaction from their lifestyle choices.

I love what I do and am enjoying stepping further into the field of Coaching. It is creating growth for me and I hope everyone finds a lifestyle coach to draw them to there fullest potentials. Creating Exceptional. 

According to the International Coach Federation (ICF), a coach develop their clients’ overall strengths and abilities.
As a professional coach, I provide the drive and guidance for my clients to improve their careers, relationships, and lives.

You create the action. I create the motivation and help you strategize by collaborating and asking the right questions that work for your personality and help determine what you want. We remove your own obstacles.


A FIT Lifestyle is the focus I work towards. A lifestyle that is healthy and fit ( A Freeing, Inspiring, Technique)  in all aspects; whether that be your marriage, your family life, your physical well being or your schedule.

So are you ready? Are you ready to create the full, integral life that you were designed for? What’s holding you back?
