Stop Thinking About creating a Successful, Sustainable Business and Actually DO it.

Call in new clients, connections, and creative flow to make the most of your energy, rest when you need to, and have your content out in the world doing the work for you.

Welcome to

A gentle membership for coaches, healers, and other service-based solopreneurs to nurture and support you to launch and grow your next offer with monthly coaching, training, strategy, and connection.

Does this sound like you?

  • You want to create a business you love that doesn't feel like you're always in 'selling' mode.
  • You're as much about ease and flow as you are launching and growing. But maybe you've been wondering if it's possible to have it both ways.
  • You're ready to expand into your next level and build momentum without getting distracted by more courses and certifications.

It can feel safe to stay in learning mode...

but it's time to start getting your work out into the world.

You don't need another certification to be ready for your business to grow.

Continued learning is wonderful (and SO important), but another tool in your toolkit isn't going to grow you confidence (and your business) the way aligned action and a customised plan is.

You're spending thousands on coaches and courses but not seeing much change...

Coaches and courses are GREAT at specific parts of your journey, but there comes a point where it's time to implement and invest some of that money into other areas of your business.

There are plenty of 'steps to success' programs out there... but maybe they don't work for you.

Not only is everyone selling THEIR steps to success, it can feel so draining and demoralising to follow someone else's system that's not actually aligned with your strengths, skills, and what works best for you.

You are not alone.

When you first decide to start a business, it's usually because you've learnt a skill that you're excited to share with the world and you dream of the #laptoplifestyle that looks so great on Instagram where you get to work with amazing clients all day long.

It can't be that hard, can it?

But, what no one really talks about is that showing up to deliver that service is just one very small part of it.

Suddenly you realise that you need branding, a website, an online presence, content, a marketing strategy, behind-the-scenes systems... and you're a business of one. How can you possibly get it all done?

That one-size-fits-all program promising six figures in six months is looking pretty good right now, huh?

Or maybe another certification will make you feel more confident and qualified to share your work and ask people to pay you for it.

It feels so good to be in the learning space until that program ends and - once again - it's back to needing a website, a weekly newsletter, launches and advertising, social media... and you're on your own again.

I understand more than you know...

When I first started my own business, I did 'all the things'. I did a coaching certification, I spent thousands on high end programs and coaches, believing that was the pathway to success.

I was a dream student. I learnt and implemented. I was often highlighted as a 'success story'.

I got the results the programs promise - sold out coaching, a five-figure eCourse launch, ebooks and podcasts and speaking gigs.

I spend tens of thousands of dollars and then I completely burnt out and walked away from my business for 3 years.

I was exhausted and couldn't see how it would be possible to continue following what I was being TOLD to do and grow my business the way I was supposed to.

And then I realised I'd been following someone else's plan since the beginning. I wasn't taking my own energy, strengths, needs, and desires into consideration - no wonder I was exhausted! I was an introverted, highly sensitive, Projector (in Human Design) trying to operate like an extroverted Generator.

When I returned to my business, I vowed to do it differently and to help my clients to not just do business differently, but to map out strategies in alignment with THEIR energy, strengths, needs, and desires (not squishing them into mine).

As Seen On...

What if you could get the support of a high end mastermind, the community of a certification program, and the systems and strategies of multiple courses... for less than a cup of coffee a day?


  • Working in a sustainable way with your energy and your gentle launches so you don't have to 'always be selling' and embracing a more cyclical approach to launching and evolving in your business.

  • Being part of a likeminded, meaningful community to show up and share, connect, and step back as you need to.
  • Having. A. Plan. So your energy isn't being depleted trying to THINK what you should be doing and you direct it where it will have the most impact in your business.
  • The joy and certainty of moving through the world with simple strategies, a clear message, and the alignment and clarity to focus on the important things with confidence.
  • Creating your own inner circle of people who want what you've got and are excited to learn from you.
  • A space where you can ask questions, get support and feel understood when things aren't going according to plan, work out your next steps, and keep moving forward in a way that feels good to you.
  • Carving out dedicated time in your week to get stuff done and start building momentum towards your next offer or launch.

Get Clarity, Confidence, and Support In A Gentle Space

It can feel like 0-100 out there. You're either going it alone, trying to get support in free communities and via Google OR joining a program that's go-go-go and you get lost in the crowd.

But what if you could get the best of both worlds?

Choose Your Own Adventure without Starting From Scratch

What's going to work for you isn't necessarily what's cool or trending right now - as much as every marketing guru will try to tell you.

Build your business your way, but get the templates, tools, and strategies so you don't have to start from scratch.

It IS possible to build a successful business That doesn't Just Make Money And Grow With You, but Also Nurtures Your Needs and Supports Your Strengths.

Phase 1: Plan and Nurture

  • Plan your next 90 days so you feel organised and empowered with your next steps.

  • Get grounded and aligned with your mission, vision, and goals, make key decisions about systems and strategies to stay on track.

  • Get templates, checklists and tools to build out your content plan, pre-launch prep, and nurture strategy to engage your people.

Phase 2: Launch And Grow

  • Grow your audience and get seen + heard by new people with your custom gentle growth strategy.

  • Get resources, help and feedback along with support as you get your launch ready to put out into the world.

  • Launch your next offer, program, or 1:1 services in a way that feels energising and exciting, gets results, and builds your business in a way that feels good for you.

Phase 3: Review And Renew

  • Gather social proof, feedback, and FAQs to evolve and improve your offer after your launch and during delivery.

  • Review your previous 90 days, metrics, and processes to evolve and expand into your next phase.

  • Set yourself up for ebbs and flows for rest and renewing by creating systems and offers that support you, even when you're taking a break or not in 'launch mode'.

I feel so excited about my creation now and bringing it to life in a sustainable and energising way! Thank you for everything you do for the membership it is incredible!

Rachelle Glendon how to live slow podcast

My time with Katherine in her wonderful business community Emerge and Expand over the last year has really allowed me to do business in a slow and intentional way - with a system for creating that helps me be seen online even when I don’t feel like showing up. The low pressure, full support format kept me on track and in my ‘business mind’ through the ups and downs of the pandemic and the shifting online landscape too.


I've been appreciating and finding what I have managed to digest in the E&E membership very valuable. To be honest, my inner planner is blown away by the systems & structures you have created+put in place (Content Ecosystem, Streamline your systems etc.) - currently navigating how I can embrace the creative flows, with the impact & focus a system + structure can bring. It takes time as I'm early on this journey, but your work certainly inspires and shows possibilities where things can go.


This is not just following a step-by-step process that might not even suit your goals, strengths, or big vision for your work, but about joining a supportive community as you work it out.

Frequently Asked Questions

I haven't started my business yet, is this for me?

Yes! This membership contains all the things I say to every client who is just starting out or getting ready to launch. I wish someone had told me the things to get up and running FIRST, so I didn't have to come back and fix lots of things later on.

What if I already have clients and a business?

The whole foundation of Emerge + Expand is that we're building and evolving a sustainable ecosystem that helps you thrive in your business. It's cyclical but there is always room for a beginner's mind and expansion. If you're willing to go there, I am too.

Do you guarantee this will improve my business?

I wish that I could, but I purposely don't provide guarantees for this work because it is a co-created space. I will show up for you and the container 100% and ask that you do the same.

If you do that, if you commit to yourself and the work and show up and engage, I am very confident that you will start seeing and feeling big shifts in your life, your energy, and your business.

What days and times are the live calls and sessions?

The live sessions are held in a private Zoom meeting across multiple times to cater to as many timezones as possible. The calls are:

Live Training: 1st Wed of the month at

10am AEST

Q+A call 1: 2nd Wed of the month 10am AEST

Q+A call 2: 4th Thurs of the month 5pm AEST

Coworking: 11am AEST and 5pm AEST on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays (alt weeks)

What if I need more support?

You're in luck! I specialise in business strategy, ideation, coaching and consulting. I only work 1:1 with a handful of people a year, but Emerge and Expand members get first access to my 1:1 and Incubator.

How is the content provided?

Through live training, recorded video workshops, audio content, workbooks, and other tools. We have our own private off-Facebook community where everything is in one place.

I'm an introvert. Will this be okay for me?

I can't tell you either way, take a moment to feel into what feels right for you. But I can speak from experience that I'm about 13% extrovert (ie 87% introvert) and have found group experiences more enjoyable, energising, and expansive than 1:1.

What if I'm in training and my business and website aren't live?

It's really important that you decide what your capacity is to make sure you can honour your commitments to yourself. But if you feel excited to get things up and running, you'll be able to ride that momentum through after your graduate. Things aren't always linear ;)

Can I cancel anytime?

You can cancel any time you like with the click of a button. I don't want you spending money on something that's not working for you!

There is also 7-day, no-questions-asked refund policy as well to give you peace of mind if you decide it's not for you when you get in there.

How tech savvy do I need to be?

It's entirely up to you HOW you create and share your content and offerings. There are so many options and you can start really simple.

I do recommend tools and software to automate parts of your business so it frees up your time and energy for better things.

If you're ready to get the support of a high-end program, connect with likeminded souls, build your own business ecosystem that supports you to thrive (instead of trying to squeeze you into someone else's box) and get tools and guidance too, come join us.
