CATALYST Is...

Transformation Coach, Trainer, Mentor

Cat Valentine

What do I know about running my own business?

I’ve been doing it for over 30yrs. 

 

I started a business answering the phone with babies on my hip. That business grew to provide private schooling for those 4 babies and travel at the pointy end of the plane.

 

I also know what it’s like to have your life circumstances change and then need to start again from scratch.

 

New business. Zero experience in the field, fear, overwhelm and dead ends. I have lived experience, and the scars to prove it, as well as an MBA and a multitude of coaching and training qualifications.

My Passion is helping people overcome the overwhelm and confusion so they can realise their vision for a successful business.

What breaks my heart is watching people with vision and passion let the fire die because they don't know how to move forward.

Brand Elevation & Confidence Enthusiast

Jess Simpson

As a publicist and marketer in the entertainment industry for the better part of 15 years, I understand that a brand is more than a business, it’s a story.

 

When you are your business - it’s YOUR story.

 

The power of your story is what makes connections and grows your brand authentically.

 

I thrive on helping passionate people share their unique and dynamic stories with the world, through confident branding, strong communication and engaging content marketing.

Helping people tell their stories authentically and create businesses that reflect who they truly are.

What breaks my heart is when brilliance is crippled by the stories out bully mind tells us......that we are too old, young, tall, fat, shy, silly or stupid to sing our stories from the rooftops and show the world what we're made of!

 

You are the expert on YOU! I just show you how to take up space!

Why did we create CATALYST?

For too long, the helping industry has been like the Wild West, with a lack of quality control and professionalism.  It’s full of noise and conflicting advice. The loudest voice, not necessarily the best voice wins.

 

You absolutely, 100% need mentors and people with more knowledge and experience than you in the areas you wish to grow.

 

The problem is finding them, and the problem is two-fold:

  1. You don’t know what you don’t know - and you know there is critical stuff you don’t know.

  2. You don’t know who the professionals are who do know what you don’t know.

 

Some of the big issues are:

  • Exaggerated income claims - "make $10k per month by following…"

  • Lack of transparency about qualifications, experience or course content

  • High-pressure sales tactics - "This will never happen again…"

  • Lack of practical, actionable advice - more about a positive mindset than concrete tools

  • Inadequate support 

  • One size fits all approach ​to bookkeeping

YOU will always be the expert in your business. Your experience, your vision, your passion, your programs. Good help should support your passion, and help you create a thriving business.

 

People with vision require settings that support finding their unique voice, environments that create space to take chances, trial ideas with peers, and hear from professionals with different business skills. Each of us move at our own pace. 

 

That's where CATALYST comes in - we know you are the expert in you.

 

With our combined decades of coaching, PR and business experience, we provide space, guidance and clear structures so that you can authentically expand your vision.

 

Stop listening to ‘experts’ that make you wrong.

"Knowledgeable, generous, committed, passionate" Coach Rach Wheeler - Aug 2023

Hayley, Qld Australia

Both Cat & Jess share decades of knowledge, experience and wisdom which I am certainly benefiting from in my own coaching business. Cat & Jess are supportive, non-judgemental and allow me to really nut out what's not working in my business, shift my inner mindset, change direction and see growth in my business. I'm doing the "hard things" with real authentic people in my corner.  It's the thing I love most about Catalyst.

 

I would recommend the program to anyone who needs support, growth and more abundance in their business. 

Brianna, Qld Australia

One word to describe Catalyst is support. When working in a field where you are predominantly working on your own, it’s great to have that support and somewhere to turn when you feel unsure or just need to bounce some ideas. 

Jess and Cat have been an incredible duo to work with, and I can't recommend them enough!

Kylie-Margaret, Vic Australia

Catalyst addressed everything I need to build my business. Specialists in the areas of finance, PR and many more have shared how to create and build my coaching business. This all happened while Cat dealt with my imposter syndrome.

 

Catalyst does not make unrealistic promises it gives facts and tools to build on what you have already started.

Paula,

Vic Australia

I would recommend the Catalyst Program with Cat & Jess in a heartbeat…… and you wont necessarily realise the benefits until that light bulb starts shining.

I had looked at other business mentoring programs but what stood out to me was the personable and relatable touch that Jess & Cat brought to the table. They are inviting and available to support you with advice even when you don’t realise you needed it.

Before I reached out, I had a concept of what I wanted my business to look like, which both Cat & Jess were supportive of...but what has been amazing is how that concept has grown and developed into something far more than I was coming up with on my own.
