WELCOME!I'm Kate Wratten.
DIGITAL MARKETING SPECIALIST & MENTOR
Founder & Heart of Kativa Business Solutions
If you’ve struggled to market your digital business and have been looking for the right mentor to support you in breaking through your current barriers, then look no further.
I’m Kate and I’m all about keeping your marketing heart-centered AND revenue-producing – without taking time away from your personal life or losing sight of your bread-and-butter client work. Yep, you can have it ALL!
I have spent the last 5 years in the trenches implementing countless marketing strategies for my clients. It was during this time that I discovered one of the biggest marketing barriers for entrepreneurs (and myself!) is accountability and prioritization. As service-providers and entrepreneurs, we are often self-sacrificing, without even realizing it. We strive to enrich the lives of our clients and customers, and otherwise and enhance their experiences through our services, but we often lose sight of our own business’s growth potential – or just get plain comfortable with the status quo.
The good news…? It doesn’t have to be this way!
It was through my personal experience and overcoming these struggles in my own business that I discovered the key to moving past these barriers was through goal-setting, just like everyone was telling me all along… But, it was more than JUST goal-setting…
I needed the accountability of others to stay true to my goals, clarity from an external advisor who wasn’t in the thick of it, and the trained eye of an expert to push me past my perfectionist and analysis paralysis tendencies.
I finally started crushing my goals, without the resistance…
Once I created the support network I needed to build momentum in my business using my 3-part success structure, my entire business changed. I suddenly had the structure and clarity I needed to provide high-level services to my clients AND grow my business exponentially.
I also knew I wasn’t the only service-provider and entrepreneur struggling with growing my business while providing the highest quality services to my clients. It was at that time that I vowed to support other female business owners through heart-centered digital marketing consulting, marketing accountability, and business growth mentoring.
Now I have the flexibility and freedom to be a mom and wife, while still serving my high-level clients and mentoring fellow entrepreneurs as they strive for their own successes and grow their own businesses through heart-centered marketing and accountability support. I’ve found my happy place, and I can’t wait to help you find yours!
BUT REALLY, who am I?
A Go-Getter, Driven By Passion & Coffee…
Fast-forward 6 years when I discovered the digital marketing industry. It fascinated me. I was giddy and excited at the potential and flexibility it could provide. It was my calling. Finally an end was in sight for my boring 9-5er.
I researched endlessly. I completed all my paperwork in March 2014, and POOF, there it was, Kativa Business Solutions.
Fast-forward another month when we got the BEST NEWS EVER, our bundle of joy would be arriving in December.
Instead of returning to my daily commute and paying exorbitant daycare rates, I made the best leap of my life – full-time entrepreneurship.
Since having kids, early mornings and coffee have become necessities and keep this yogi loving and likeable. Give me a peaceful house and a hot, tasty cup of dark roast… GLORIOUS!
My days are filled with love, laughter, and wild
I feel like the luckiest woman in the world, most days. Working in my cozy home office. Spending countless hours playing, baking, and chasing my little giggle-monsters around the house.
Occasionally I wonder what in the HECK I was thinking, but only occasionally. It is usually cut short by the most adorable smiles, ever
I am grateful for everything I have, and I am excited for everything yet to come. The future holds great things, so I work hard and love harder.
