I'm Katie O'Brien. I'm a Certified Professional Coach turned Web Designer.
My business focuses on building beautiful WordPress websites for entrepreneurs who don't have the time or the desire to learn the ins and outs of building a professional website themselves.
I have two main objectives during my builds:
- Grant you a simplistically, classy site that accurately reflects who you are and what you do, and
- Grant you a turnkey WordPress site, so moving forward you can easily edit and tweak your site on your own without feeling lost or intimidated.
Let's quiet the noise of the have-tos and should-bes in the online world and finally get you that stunning online space you've been dreaming of...
"Whatever you do, do it from the heart, as something done for the Lord..."
On a more personal note, I'm first and foremost a faithful child of God. Every day I wake up to serve the Lord and grow deeper in my relationship with Christ. It wasn't always this way and am grateful to have come to Christ in my adult life.
I'm married to my dream guy who also just so happens to be a dedicated law enforcement officer. And I'm a mother to two crazy yet super sweet children (Ava 4 & Mannix 2).
A Certified Coach + New Mom
My daughter was born in 2013 just a month after receiving my coaching certification from the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching. I left my 9-5, became a stay at home mom and full-time entrepreneur all in the same day. Needless to say, that first year was a little crazy.
But things settled down in the new-mom arena and my coaching business started growing.
In fact, things were so good my husband and I decided it was time to have a new home built, move across state lines and have another baby. All which happened within a month of each other in the summer of 2015.
The reality of Baby #2
Chaos was an understatement.
I was on maternity leave from my coaching business. Unpacking boxes. And learning that baby #2 was nothing like baby #1. Quite the opposite in fact... he was not sleeping, not wanting to leave mommy, not taking a bottle, etc.
I didn't have the time, quiet or sanity to start coaching again. So instead, one afternoon I bittersweetly emailed my waitlist of clients letting them know I'd be closing the doors to my coaching business until further notice.
One door closes, another opens
Shortly after closing the doors, I really needed something for me. There was an entrepreneurial void. But I needed something I could still manage with a bit of chaos and noise in the background. Or with a baby strapped to me.
In February of 2016, I started a virtual assistant business, joined Marie Forleo's B-School and then quickly morphed my business into the web design business it is today.
Owning my own web design business has truly always been a distant dream of mine and I'm so grateful the chaos of my children led me to finally pursue something I love so much.
Today I'm grateful to be using my God-given gifts to help others thrive in their heart-felt businesses.
Think we'd be a dream team? I'd love to jump on a call to see how I can support you with a gorgeous new website.
