"I think these conversations are so so needed. We often don't take the time out of our business, life, day-to-day to ask the really hard and core questions. Great answers don't come without great questions."
"Katie has a unique ability to craft questions on the spot to help the attendees reach deeper than the surface of what we do and begin to tap into the why of everything we do...(this) will help me make realistic decisions and goals to move forward with my business."
"Eye-opening, really focusing on the why, earth-shattering, scary, enlightening, and exhilarating. It (Assured + Well) helped me think about how I can really get back to what I am best at and let go of the things that were holding me down or causing anxiety."
"Assured + Well was exactly what the name suggests - an event to root you more in confidence and assurance into the person you are and were created to be in order to make and create the most unique-to-you life available."
"Katie's intentions behind Assured + Well are felt all day long throughout this experience. If you are at a crossroads in your work + life, I highly recommend you attend this workshop. The heart behind each exercise is to find your personal truth. You will walk away with a sweeter vision of not only your business, but yourself. What can be more rewarding than learning to love yourself well and in turn being able to bless others because assurance is filling your heart and business vision!"
- Hannah Ashford, graphic designer
"Absolutely incredible. Katie's poignant questions and insightful format of the session lead to some truly heartfelt discoveries that made all the difference in the way I approach my work!"
- Bonnie Bakhtiari, brand designer and retreat founder
"My experience with Assured + Well was powerful and unique. I have never been asked such thought-provoking questions directed towards my dreams and goals in life. This time spent focusing on myself and my creative ventures has helped me in so many ways. Not only do I now fully and truly believe that I do not need anyone's approval of my dreams, but I now fully feel comfortable pursuing them. I discovered a newfound life motto after attending - 'What I do does not define who I am. Who I am defines what I do.' Plain and simple."
- Kendall Hancock, blogger
"Assured + Well was unlike anything I have experienced before. The dedicated writing time and group discussions went to a deep authentic level that was both inspiring and educational. I can honestly say that I walked away feeling a different kind of inspiration. I feel like I know myself and my business more intimately and I am more passionate and confident in my pursuits than ever before."
- Michelle Nace, personal wardrobe stylist
"I have engaged in a host of creative conferences and workshops in my last three years and business, and I found Assured + Well to be quite special and unique. Katie guided our group through mental heavy-lifting to uncover underlying fears and hesitations, which guided us toward our greater why's. Most of the day was spent journaling in response to Katie's thought-provoking questions, but there was also time for building community through conversation with other creatives. If you're like me, you may wonder what's missing from your mission statement. You may feel like you're constantly working, but you're not sure if you're accomplishing anything meaningful. You may be overwhelmed by a goal that feels out of reach, or you may have put an aspiration on hold because you simply don't have time for it. If any of these resonates, Assured + Well is the right experience for you. You'll leave with a journal full of ideas propelled by self-reflection and a heart that is truly, like the name, assured."
- Alex Estes, calligraphy and lettering artist
"Assured + Well gave me clarity. I knew that's what I needed, but I didn't understand it fully until I went to this workshop. Now that it's clear and I'm focused, I can really pursue what I passionate about - starting + building businesses!"
- Ashley Snyder, design and marketing firm owner
"Katie’s voice brings clarity and calm to those who have been swept up in the creative industry whirlwind. Whether you are in the beginning stages of overwhelm or have found yourself a slave to your work, her commitment to operate solely from her own deep-rooted truth will inspire you and help you find your own. "
- Bethany Fray, gathering designer
"Assured + Well is not like what you'd expect. It's not like the other workshops you approach and walk in ready to conquer your field and others in it and become the ultimate #girlboss. It's about your heart - and at the soul of being creative, this should always be our source. You learn about self and in order to run your business well, your self and your creative self, must also be well. It's a time of deep reflection and soul searching. A time to look past the likes, followers and inquiries. A time to find your roots and grab hold of them. Why wouldn't you want to do this?!"
