We brought on professional community builder, Katie Saffert to help us dive into this topic.

Picture this: You’re on the floor in your house, sitting, perched up against a kitchen cabinet. You’re probably crying. You have everything that everyone tells you to have. A perfect partner, a 9-5 job that is financially supporting, a home you can call your own… but somehow you’re here… on the floor. Wondering how in the world you got here & wanting to escape it all.
Maybe you were here at some point in your life, maybe you’re here right now, or maybe you’re just about to get to this point.
This was me 12 years ago. It was in that moment I realized I was not living my passions and was shying away from my power. That’s when I decided to make the jump, the jump into what we call this thing “entrepreneurship”.
From there I leaped into wedding coordinating, event production, custom furniture making, florals and catering. I even took my catering business on the water for a while, working on private Yachts. As soon as I took the jump, life opened up, gifting me with the skills, experience, and motivation I needed to create the life of my dreams!
Here’s where Hatched Collective comes in… I realized there were other women sitting on the floor wondering why they didn’t feel fulfilled. I decided to leap again, opening Hatched Collective.
Hatched Collective is a consulting firm for entrepreneurs who are ready to build their community and grow their business. What the entrepreneurs in this community have in common is an inner drive to pursue what it is that makes them happy. They have big ideas and value working in a collaborative space with other entrepreneurs. The power that comes from working together & supporting one another equals an unstoppable powerhouse.
No matter what stage of your business you are at (been in business for 5, 10, 20 years, just starting out, or just hatched an idea) I am here to support you!
