I first met Kathy a few month’s ago at one of our luncheons. Her smile just draws you into conversation. She is such a lovely combination of ease and grace with a splash of spunky sassiness! I feel as women we forget that we, our life/our bodies/our spirit, are important. Kathy helps us remember that we are all rockstars with uptapped potential! As a golf sponsor for our upcoming tournament, her lessons teach us that life is like achieving that hole-in-one: It doesn’t happen over night, but with guidance, motivation, and commitment (and a little kick in the butt every now and then), we will reach our goals!
Share something about yourself that can’t be found on your resume.
I love home-baked cookies. There is absolutely no nutritional label detailing calories.
Who is/has been your role model/mentor? And what is one key thing they taught you?
My sister-in-law, Susan Kooring, was a mentor to me at a young age. She taught me to always go out of my way to make people feel special.
If you could travel anywhere in the world – money is not an issue – where would you go and why?
Europe. I love the architecture and most of all the history associated with the European countries.
What is a motto or phrase you live and/or work by?
“Helping others succeed is my success” is on my business card, but personally, my dream is to inspire women that they can be so much more than they can possibly imagine. Most women have no idea of their potential.
Who is your must-listen-to or must-read author, blog or video blog? How do they inspire, motivate, encourage and/or help you?
This is a tough question. I love so many authors and get something different from each one. My first exposure to personal development was about 15 years ago to Andy Andrews. He teaches great principles in a story format so it was a great introduction for a newbie like me. I like Brene Brown for spiritual or self-help and Darren Hardy is great for business and personal development helping me make changes in my daily practices. I recently was at a crossroad in life of where to go next and I read The Passion Test by Janet and Chris Attwood. I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to know their “why.”
Any last words of wisdom to share with UTWNG members and future members?
I’ve always had the firm belief that my business only grows as much as I grow personally and help other people to grow. So if I feel stagnant in my business it’s because I need to “take a look under the hood” and work on me personally. I want to work with motivated, committed and rockstar people so I know that I need to be that same type of person in order to attract those people into my life so that I can help them.
