Out of Pure Terror…

Was born the Real Wealth Network.  Sure, Kathy always had the desire to be an entrepreneur, but when her husband got sick and the medical bills started to pile up, Kathy had to figure out how to make money and fast. She used the platform she already had (a podcast) and built up her audience and target market through that. 

When you’re really up against it, that’s when miracles happen. It’s when she knew she needed to shift what she previously believed was possible.

What did you discover in  your podcast interviews? (She interviewed Wealthy individuals)

  • mindset
  • being open to money  vs being afraid of money
  • just talking about money and breaking the taboo around it.

Kathy realized she always held the belief it was a selfish thing. She knew she had to create a constant flux of income. In her interviews, she learned the avenue towards that was real estate and/or building a business. So she did BOTH!


Empowered Employees: The foundation of any successful business

Really successful businesses are a result of empowered employees. These people may also be more talented than you. For the first time, she hired “ABOVE” her. She also brought in a partner because she finally understood how powerful that could be.

How To Empower Employees

Kathy and her team hire people with the idea that this is their business too. Ask them:

  • What do you want?
  • What would be your dream job?
  • What would motivate and excite you?


When were you in the trenches Kathy?

Kathy was in the trenches when she had $250 in her bank account and couldn’t even pay her employees. This forced her to get creative along with the employees help. She learned that the hardest times in life are when you are forced to get creative.
