Hi, I’m Kat, a Mindset & Success Coach

I’m on a mission to empower women worldwide to put themselves first, achieve their goals and live their next level life.

Kat Horrocks Mindset Business and Success Coach for Women

I remember the moment when I decided to put myself first. To stop living my life based on what other people wanted, and start running after my dreams.

18 years old, ready and eager to apply for University. To be the ‘good girl’ that I had always known myself to be and been praised for. You know the type. Don’t get in trouble. Be nice. Work hard. Get good grades. Get your head down. Get a good job. Good girl. 

But something inside of me, one day said NO.

Something inside of me felt suffocated. 

Something inside of me wanted more.

Something inside of me questioned it all…

Who chose this goal, this dream, this life path? Me? Or someone else? Something inside of me knew that this was not my path to walk down.

So I listened to that voice. I trusted my gut and I took a leap of faith to say, “thanks, but no thanks” to my Uni offer, finish college and start my own business.

Finding My Purpose

Fresh out of school with no business training, just a fire in my belly, a passion for the work I was doing and a desire to live a life based on freedom, creativity, purpose and impact.

At the time, I was building a business as a bridal makeup artist. I felt so lit up watching women shine, seeing their eyes light up and a huge smile when they saw themselves in the mirror, ready for their big day.

You see, I’ve always been a girl’s girl. A champion and a cheerleader for other women.

The outcome, the transformation, the result has always been the same in my work.

To carve out space and time for women to connect, share, reflect and breathe

To support them to put themselves first

To celebrate them every step of the way

To give them tools to feel like their next level self. The version of themselves they’ve always wanted to be (and secretly, know they always have been, deep down)

freedom. passion. impact. creativity.

Building My Dream Business

Growing my first business, I became nothing short of obsessed, fascinated and enamoured with personal development, mindset work and business strategy.

You see, nobody in my family is an entrepreneur, so building a business on my own required me to fully back myself and have a rock-solid foundation of self-belief, confidence, strategy and goals.

I was spending hours and hours a week studying. Whether it was journaling on my money mindset, trying to work through this thing I discovered called ‘imposter syndrome’ (now a key area I help my clients through), learning all about social media marketing or building my confidence to show up online and share my services with the women who needed them.

4 years into my makeup artistry, I realised that to create a deeper impact in women’s lives, to truly fulfil this mission, I had to go further.

In order to do that, I had to figure out the following…

  1. I had to reach women worldwide and online.

  2. I had to share a wider range of tools and support that had a lifelong impact on how a woman felt about herself and her goals.

Growing my first business, I became nothing short of obsessed, fascinated and enamoured with personal development, mindset work and business strategy.

“But wait…how the hell do I do that?! What does that even look like?”

I felt so frustrated. I remember thinking,

“I trusted my gut and took that leap. And it didn’t work out. Where do I go from here?”

I had no clue what the next steps were. The only thing I knew for certain was this passion I had for creating an impact in women’s lives, and my desire for something even bigger. Bigger than my own mindset at the time could even comprehend.

I saw myself writing a bestselling book.

Speaking on the TEDx stage.

Hosting workshops, events, retreats for women worldwide.

This was my next level. And it felt so far out of reach.

So I hired a business coach. 

Coaching Changed My Life

At the time, a family member had given me some money for savings, the only reason I was able to hire her. I felt sick when I made that payment. I had never invested that much money into myself.

But again, part of me just knew. Knew that it was a YES. Knew that I needed to pursue this. Knew that investing in myself was the support I needed to move forward.

Working with a coach changed my life. I witnessed the power of coaching in myself, my personal growth and the growth of my business.

I learnt so much about myself.

I had the space to explore my true mission and purpose.

I received dedicated support from an expert.

I was given permission and encouraged to claim my ridiculously huge goals and say them out loud to someone who got it. Someone who said, “Hell yes you can get there!”

I had a cheerleader in my corner, rooting for me.

A few months in, I remember her saying, 

“You’d make an amazing coach, you know?”

Ladies, that right there – was my lightning strike, a-ha moment.

Suddenly, it all became crystal clear to me.

This is why I believe you are always being guided and you are exactly where you are supposed to be, even if at the time it doesn’t make sense!

In hindsight, coaching was always my path. It doesn’t feel like work, it aligns with my greatest values and allows me to wake up every morning knowing I’m fulfilling my purpose and making a difference.

As they say…the rest is history.

4 years on and counting, I have transformed the lives of hundreds of women, helping them put themselves first, achieve their goals and reach the next level of their life and their business.

I have to pinch myself that this is my job! It is a deep privilege and honour to do this work.

Put Yourself First

Put Yourself First is the reason I wake up every morning and get out of bed. I believe it is my mission on this planet to share this work with you. 

Kat Horrocks Mindset Coach Business Coach Put Yourself First

You see, when a woman puts herself first and shines her light, the whole world shines back.

Yet, we have been taught the opposite.

Be a good girl. Be nice. Be quiet. Be selfless.

Don’t complain, you should be thankful for what you have.

Women speaking up for themselves in leadership roles? Bossy and crass.

Your worth as a woman lies in your ability to look after everyone else. You come last.

I call bullshit on all of the above.

Because in the last 4 years, the impact I have seen from the women I work with deciding that they come first, that their goals matter, has been earth-shatteringly huge. Not just in their own lives, but the lives of everyone else they care about.

When you put yourself first…

You give other people permission to do the same.
You are present in the lives of your loved ones.
You are giving from an overflowing cup, with zero resentment and 100% generosity.
You light up the room when you walk in.
You have the power to change the world.
