How to get paid to be you.

The other night Mike asked me if I feel like we have a real business, or if I think I just get paid to journal.

It was a hilarious question, but it really made me think.

The reality is, while I certainly feel like I do more than journal, I do feel like I get paid {very well} to be me.

It’s such a relief to know that my livelihood is not dependent upon putting on a mask, trying to fit into a box, or attempting to be someone I’m not.

The great news is that you can also get paid to be you. And I’d love to teach you how.

I’m teaching a free webinar on Tuesday, February 23rd, at 10am PT/1pm ET called: How to Build Your Business to Feed Your Soul and Fund Your Life: 7 Strategies That Work.

Hot To Build Your Business To Feed Your Soul And Fun Your Life. Kate Nothrup will teach on the webinar, the 7 Strategies that work. Click to register.


In this delicious hour I will share the secrets of how:

– I’m working less and making more. (Last year I worked less than a quarter of the time I’d worked the previous year, yet the business still grew. I took a 1-month honeymoon, had an extremely restful pregnancy, and took a 3-month maternity leave.)

– Taking my business online increased my revenue by over 750% (and 200% in the last year alone) and what strategies I used to do that. (Some of them will surprise you!)

– I used 8 totally doable strategies to increase my audience by 410% in one year.

– Not asking yourself these 3 simple questions when you’re starting or growing your business could get you way off track.

– Being nice might be the worst thing for your business…and what to do instead.

– You can make the competition totally irrelevant in ANY industry…because you’ve got one precious asset that nobody else has.

– You can get started running a profitable business from anywhere in the world doing what you love and being of service today.

– You can start building a business that you love even before you feel like you know what you’re doing – and you can even get paid while you still don’t feel like you know what you’re doing!

P.S. If you’re new around here, allow me to introduce myself:

Hi! I’m Kate Northrup, a creative entrepreneur and bestselling author who loves to teach people how to make a life, not just a living. It’s all about freedom, baby. (My thing is bringing the light and fun into subjects that sometimes feel a little dark and heavy. Like money, for example.)

At the age of 28 I created financial freedom (having enough residual income to cover my living expenses) after getting myself into a boat-load of credit card debt and learning how to unravel that mess from a place of love instead of beating myself up. (Hint: Love always wins!)

Through a combo of building a business in the direct selling industry with a team of over 2,500 wellness entrepreneurs and learning to leverage online marketing, I figured out how to create a sustainable life: one that feels good financially, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

My husband and I run our budding empire together from the coast of Maine. We had a baby girl 5 months ago, and we’re living our dream of being a stay-at-home family. We didn’t have to worry about our employer paying us for maternity or paternity leave. I didn’t have to have my heart broken as I left my babe to go back to work. Neither Mike nor I will miss the most important moments of her childhood.

We’ve created multiple streams of income, some of them passive and residual, so that we can live the dream we’ve always wanted.

We don’t set alarm clocks. We work only on projects that inspire us. We say no to a lot of cool things because we value our freedom – and because we want to be able to say yes to the coolest things.

I’ve also had the pleasure of sharing some insights on financial freedom and #moneylove on The Today Show, Yahoo! Finance, and MarieTV, as well as in Glamour, Women’s Health, and Experience Life magazines.

Plus, I have some of the brightest minds in self-actualization and business on my speed dial list. These are the women (and a few really good men) who inspire me every day and who I’m so proud to call confidantes, colleagues, and kindred spirits. (Because seriously, if we’re not sharing the journey with people we love, what’s the point?! It’s so much better together.)

If you want to take the first steps toward making what you love what you do (and getting really well paid for it), then join me for this FREE class.

My story is not that unique. I know hundreds of incredible people who’ve created beautiful lives that they love using principles similar to those I’m going to teach you in my free class.

I’m going to show you how I got started – from scratch, no less. I’ll even show you my first, very embarrassing blog post!

Everything I used to create this life of freedom, love and abundance can be learned. It’s not rocket-science, but it’s not anything I was born knowing, either.

Let me teach you what I know. It will make a huge difference for you, too.

See you Tuesday!

How to Make Money the Feminine Way.


If you hang in the personal development woo-woo circles that I do (and you likely do since you’re reading this), there’s a lot of talk about masculine and feminine energy.

21 Days to Change Your Financial Life with the #MoneyLoveChallenge


  Ever since I had the baby I cannot seem to find anything I can tolerate watching other than Modern Family or Fixer Upper. I can’t stand anything with violence, anything disturbing, anything scary, or anything depressing. So that cuts out almost everything on TV. I promised Mike I wouldn’t watch the new episodes of…

Some Traditions Are Made To Be Broken.

Some Traditions Header

  There’s a tendency around the holidays to fall into the groove of doing the same things every year simply because that’s the way we’ve always done them. My friend Deb Kern beautifully described the way family traditions can bring us stress if we’re not mindful in her recent Blog Babysitter post here on my…
