Katelyn James is a marketing mastermind, a wife, a mom of 5, a gifted photographer and creative and the face of a 7-figure education business. She's also one of the kindest and most humble human beings you will meet, and I'm thrilled to share my conversation with Katelyn on today's episode of BEYOND: The Podcast for Moms Called to Business.
We cover so much on this episode – it's my longest episode to date – but filled with so much goodness. We talk about Katelyn's humble beginnings as a college student with a small business to becoming a millionaire who has stewarded her gifts to grow and support her extended family doing work she loves. We talk about marriage, motherhood, business, grief and loss, personal and spiritual growth and her belief that EVERYONE "should have a coach". She believes it so fully that her business invests in personal coaching for her entire team.

On this episode of BEYOND, you'll learn:

• What Katelyn learned about hustle in the early years of her business and how it quickly grew to a 7-figures
• How investing in her own coaching saved her most important relationships
• The cost of her business consuming her life for the first 5 years of marriage, and what she does differently now
• The lie that keeps most entrepreneurs from investing in their own growth and support
• Her loss of baby James in 2018 and what it taught her about the role of pain and discomfort in our healing and growth
• What a typical week looks like for Katelyn and her husband Michael in this season of life and business
• What's next for her personal brand, KJ Education and the pivot she feels coming soon
