Life isn’t meant to be something we ‘get through’. We are meant to thrive in all elements of our existence.
My name is Kate Strong and I don’t believe in living a compromised life. From an early age, I felt I was different. I was curiously questioning almost everything I did, and realised that living within society’s comfort zone doesn’t always create inspiring and extraordinary results.
My mission is to inspire and empower people, just like you, to step up and achieve what you know intuitively know you want.
Add clarity, direction, a sense of purpose and methods to maintain your desire to move forward to achieve and live your dreams.
We live so far beneath our potential. We need to stop waiting for the right time and make now the time to start.
Imagine living a life with no glass ceiling to cap your potential?
Whether you want to develop a profitable & purposeful business, or to take your life to the next level, I can support you.
For over three decades, I tried to fit in. I put what other people expected of me ahead of what I truly wanted to do. I was not being entirely me – I was conforming and compromising.
At university, I studied Engineering – to please my parents (I did enjoy the challenge of learning a new topic, but being an engineer was never my dream).
After graduating, I went to Latin America and stopped travelling to ‘return to normal’ and to ‘settle down’ – following the unspoken rules of society.
Then, I emotionally gave up. I got a job, bought a house and it wasn’t until a dramatic break-up with my fiancé that left me financially in debt and emotionally distraught, did I realise that I could not go on living and putting other people’s expectations of me first.
I chose to step away from ‘society’s tick-list lifestyle’ and create a life that would keep me thriving, not just existing.
Far too many people are living below their potential, in a state of discomfort; living for Friday afternoon and the next paycheque. Life doesn’t have to be like this: Live unreasonably and live with meaning!
If ‘normal’ doesn’t excite you, the first step is to stop reacting to circumstance and start consciously creating a life that inspires you.
It would have been too easy for me to get a ‘safe & secure’ job and settle down, but settling isn’t that comfortable. Instead, I decided to design a business and life that I would be excited to live. This led me to 9 years in Australia as owner & operator of multiple hospitality businesses and also discovering triathlon. Applying my ‘anything is possible’ attitude, I found myself on Team Australia and was age-group World Champion in long-distance triathlon in 2014 all off plant-based nutrition.
One question I’m asked regularly is “How?” How did I set such bold goals? How did I have time to train and still operate my business? How did I improve my and my team’s efficiency?
And I now answer these questions through my coaching and consulting, as well as guest speaker at events.
There has never been a better time to start on your personal journey of self-discovery than now. The world is changing fast, and we need more leaders to step up and lead the way.
We are at an interesting point in history, where our actions will have profound impact on the world’s future. Our world is changing, it is up to us whether it is changing for the better, or worse.
What are you doing to positively change your world?
Kate is an excellent Keynote Speaker. We had excellent feedback from attendees of her seminars at two recent Expo events that we organised. Kate has a fascinating profile of experience which piques people’s interest even before they’ve seen her; compelling subject matter on relevant, topical issues; great engagement with the audience, and she’s nice to work with. We’ve asked her to speak again at a future event. Can highly recommend.
