Tell us about your business and why you started it?
Through Active Chief, I met a variety of business owners and noticed a pattern in their marketing activity (or lack thereof.)
I then noticed that many of these businesses weren’t able to communicate a clear direction through marketing activity that was very adhoc and inconsistent with their brands and their target audiences. I saw this an opportunity to help these business owners and share my expertise in the marketing field, which is why I launched my marketing consulting company, Kate Emiley, in late 2017.
Tell us about what you're working on now and what we should be looking out for:
I'm running a workshop that is called Convert Your Community into Customers and is happening on Saturday 5 May at One Roof from 9am to 12pm.
It's a workshop for like-minded business owners, where you'll leave with the skills and guidance to talk to your customers with confidence and build a community that actually wants to buy from you. This is a hands-on workshop so you will actually get work done, rather than just adding to your ever-growing to-do list.

What's your tip for someone starting a business?
Hold the vision, trust the process. Things always take longer than you think, so trust that if you clearly understand your purpose for starting it will succeed.
What do you find beneficial when it comes to working from a co-working space such as One Roof?:
The community aspect! Working on your business when you are a sole trader can become quite lonely so being a part of such an incredibly supportive and engaged community like One Roof has been an incredible experience, especially in the early stages of my business. There is such a wealth of knowledge and everyone is so keen to share and help each other.
Tell us about YOU, what do you like doing when you unplug from work?
I live health and wellness! I love all types of exercise (especially yoga and HIIT) and creating delicious, wholesome food. My guilty pleasure is watching anything with the term "The Bachelor" in it and binging on American soaps on Netflix.
Life motto: Hold the vision, trust the process.
