I'm Katie O'Brien, a Certified Professional Coach turned Web Designer + Brand Strategist. I'm also a proud 2016 B-School alum.
I'm the designer + coach who starts strategy, has an obsession with organization and makes it a breeze for my clients to get the polished and professional online presence their business deserves.
In 2013, I received my coaching certification from the ICF-accredited Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). And then in 2016, I transitioned from coaching to web design + brand strategy.
In 2020, I began partnering with the B-School program, providing intimate support for new students. In addition to the core curriculum and Marie's B-School Bonuses, I provide new students with a deep dive website + brand review alongside private and group coaching opportunities with myself.
When I'm not working, you'll likely find me somewhere outdoors enjoying our beautiful hometown, Charles Town, West Virginia (USA). Here I live with my husband, two young children, and our spunky pup, Makk.

B-School has given me everything I need to build a life + business I love.

my b-school story
Before B-School, I was dreaming of a little side gig I could successfully run alongside staying home with my littles.
I hung the hat to my coaching business shortly after my second child was born in 2015. The juggle (ahem... struggle) of motherhood was too much for me to handle alongside juggling a coaching business. So I decided it was best for all involved to hit pause until the kiddos were in school full time.
But I just couldn't seem to quiet my entrepreneurial spirit.
Between diaper changes and meal planning, I was scouring the internet for a business that was better suited for my new lifestyle. And then I saw Marie Forleo's B-School was open for enrollment.
Before enrolling, I had a basic website and small idea of the services I wanted to provide. I also had a deep desire to succeed.
Finances were tight back then and I wasn't bringing in any income. So I talked it over with my husband and we both felt it sounded like a good investment, even though it really stretched us financially.
Throughout the program, I watched every video, did every fun sheet, participated in every call and took every bonus training. I also regularly leaned on the community for support, guidance, and feedback through everything.
By the end of the 8 weeks, I had already made enough in my business to cover the initial investment.
And that next month? I brought in over 5 times what I originally spent on this program.
That little side gig I was searching for turned into the beautiful, highly-profitable business I have today.
It's a business that allows me to work with and serve clients I adore from all over the globe, doing something I love.
A business that's granted my husband the freedom to quit his second job and to say no to overtime assignments that pull him away from family.
It's a business that grants me the freedom to create a schedule that works around my life, not the other way around.
A business that allows me to be there for my kiddos when they need me the most, whether that's when they're home sick or just want mama to come read to their classroom.
That freedom also allows me to participate in mid-day Bible studies through my church. Join friends for morning coffee dates. Or join my husband for lunch dates or day hikes.
And with an average profit margin of over 60% (and growing!) each year... it's given me the ability to SLAY our family's financial goals.
Sure, it was hard work, several late nights and some serious determination... but the catapult of my success started with Marie Forleo's B-School.
The B-School Bonus Suite that includes one on one coaching!
I have recommended this program to anyone and everyone long before I was an Affiliate Partner. But now that I'm on the inside circle of Marie's affiliate partners, I get to work closely with new B-Schoolers, just like you, through my dreamy suite of bonuses.
Wonder if my suite of bonuses is for you?
First off, let me just start off by saying the best part about B-School is, well, B-School itself. The vast amount of bonuses offered by some of the top online entrepreneurs in the world... they're just icing on the cake.
B-School alone transforms businesses.
As an affiliate partner, I wanted to offer a bonus suite that complimented the program itself. I didn't want to add extra work or another online course... but rather provide some high-value, high-touch support that could only enhance your B-School experience.
These bonuses will help you complete the program. And everyone I've ever known who has completed the program saw a massive transformation in their business.
If you're committed to investing in yourself and want to see results, it's important that you actually do the work. I'm here to help you do just that.
Here's a rundown on each of the bonuses you'll receive when you enroll with me:
Bonus One: Website (+ Brand) Review
After completing the Website Module on Week 2, you're bound to have some questions. Before diving into your website review, I'll send you over a form to complete. Here you'll be able to ask any specific questions that I'll answer during your recorded deep dive. I'll comb through your existing website (and online presence) sharing feedback, suggestions, and strategies for you to focus on first.
During this recording, I'll not only cover your website but your overall brand cohesiveness and social media presence.
Don't have a website yet? Not a problem! You can sub this bonus for a 1-1 call after you complete the Website Module in Week 2 of B-School.
Bonus Two: Mid-point Coaching Call
It's easy to get excited when diving into something brand new. But what happens when life gets busy and the excitement wears off? Well, it's all too easy to put something like a lifetime-access-online-course on the backburner for a while. But that 'while' turns into 'forever' for too many.
This mid-point consult call will not only serve as accountability for you but help you through any of the material you might be feeling stuck on.
This bonus provides you with the individualized opportunity to get the support you need. We'll meet via a Zoom Video for this call for a full 60 minutes. Prior to our call, I'll send you over a short prep form to help you gather your thoughts and get the most out of our time together.
Bonus Three: Bring-it-in Coaching Call
Bonus three is all about finishing strong! You're going to have some big ideas come graduation day... but then what? This consult call is where we'll get crystal clear on your business goals (both immediate and long term) and devise a plan for you moving forward.
This 60-minute call will help you prioritize the right things in the right order helping you to take strategic action moving forward. Not just at the end of B-School but for years to come.
Plus, I understand –life– so you'll have until a full month after the end of B-School to schedule your call.
Bonus Four: 2 Group Coaching Sessions + Live Q&A
My final bonus brings us together after the end of B-School for accountability, check-ins, answers to any pending questions and a bit of group coaching to finish strong. After B-School ends we'll come together for 2 intimate group coaching calls in May and June.
If you can't make one of the calls, no worries! You'll still have the opportunity to submit any questions for that month's call and then catch the replay when you're able.
B-School's Core Curriculum:
A new module released each week with two weeks reserved for implementation so you don't feel rushed. Each week additional training videos and bonus materials are released alongside the core curriculum allowing you to dive even deeper.
B-School provides lifetime access so you can chug along at your own pace that works best for your schedule. I went through B-School in 2016 at full speed, completing every video, every fun sheet, and every bonus training. Since then, each year I revisit the material but at my own pace.

I want you to dive right in that first week of B-School with zero distractions so we'll reserve our first call for after Week 2 concludes. All bonuses must be redeemed by June 30th, 2020.

Every year Marie and her team create a private Facebook group for new members of B-School. THAT is the Facebook group you want to be in. I want to encourage you to be involved, ask questions and dive deep into the full B-School community. Trust me, you won't need another Facebook group.
Once B-School is over all new B-Schoolers from this year will then be transitioned into the larger B-Schoolers' Facebook group alongside all the alumni from the previous years.
I've served hundreds of entrepreneurs over the years.
