Where It All Began...
I first launched my Instagram in just as I started prepping to compete in my first body building competition. In , I went on to win the WBFF Bikini World Championship in Las Vegas and a couple of months later, I went on to win Miss Supercars. These led to opportunities I never imagined such as presenting on the Big Screen at the Supercars racetrack across Australia and gracing covers of international modelling and fitness magazines. Don’t get me wrong, the shiny trophies, the public attention and the social media growth was incredible, but the true fulfilment came from sharing mystory on how I built resilience, how I overcame my adversities and how I could start helping others to do the same and chase their dreams.
From the ripe old age of years old my love for business began, I started a flower business, and believe me, the business blossomed just as quick as the lilie’s did (they’re still my favourite flowers!). I loved the business, I loved the product, and I learnt early that if you love your product, you never “sell”, you simply speak your passion. At years old, I landed a weekly gig with my local radio station, hosting my own show “Katie’s Corner” where I hosted the top countdown and interviewed local talent. It taught me that no question is a silly question and I learnt that practising over and over, gave me the confidence I needed to be great.
At 19 years old I took a huge risk, I got a loan, I bought my first business - a promotional modelling agency and grew it to be the largest in Australia with more than staff contracted. I learnt through years of hard work and commitment that if you truly believe in your vision, it will certainly become your reality and at years old, I exited my first figure company.
