Learn more at KathleenMulligan.com

How long have you been in business? Coaching and consulting amazing women for over 10 years – entrepreneur for over 30.

Why did you begin your business? About 17 years ago I experienced an intense physical and emotional ‘crashed and burned’ which led me on a long healing journey. I moved to Mexico and spent years as well as over $50,000 studying and becoming certified in a multitude of high-level, holistic Wellness and Transformational programs. My intention was to heal and recreate a new life while supporting others to do the same.

When I returned to the United States after living abroad for 13 years, my work shifted. I began meeting so many bright and talented women who were quietly (often secretly) suffering from an unsustainable speed of life and the same pressures and overwhelms that had crashed my life over a decade earlier.

It wasn’t until then – that I realized how dramatically I had changed. I had become a woman who had ‘learned’ how to deeply respect, honor, and even celebrate herself and I wanted other women to feel that same sense of self-confidence and self-celebration. I wanted women to learn how to feel fabulous in their own skin – to breakthrough their limiting beliefs so they could break free to create the personal and professional success and fulfillment they deserved.

This is my passion, and I’m also privileged to call it my work.

What is your mission for your business? To help each woman cultivate a powerful personal presence – one that is grounded in self-confidence and high self-value. To teach each woman to see herself through new eyes – eyes that learn to marvel at her own magnificence and uniqueness. To support each woman to live into her fullness – boldly.

If there was one thing you wish you knew before you began your business, what would that be? That I didn’t have to build my business using everyone else’s blueprint for success. That I could instead – craft my business to feel luscious, spacious and joyful for both my clients and me. Happy to have finally gotten here.

What is a guiding principle that you use in your business? Integrity. Service. Witnessing/Affirming others. Bowing in humility and deep gratitude for the privilege of working with the amazing women I do.

What makes you a thriving woman in business? My fierce dedication and unabashed passion (those who know me – know I cry just talking about it) in support of women stepping into the fullness and brilliance of who they are.

What do you love about being a thriving woman in business?  Being part of a community of SiStars who are here to create powerful and positive impact in our world.

What is the next big thing or dream for you in your business? Luscious ‘Reboot Your Bliss Retreats’ in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and the Northern California Wine Country.

Rayna Lumbard HeadshotHow long have you been in business?  I started my marriage & family, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, energy/sound healing, and life/business coaching business in 1987.

Why did you begin your business?  I had many life challenges growing up. After being a dental hygienist for two years, I felt compelled to follow my heart to become a marriage and family therapist. I enjoy supporting individuals, couples, and families to be happier, healthier, wealthier, and more fulfilled. I am on purpose clearing emotional blocks and helping my clients heal negative thoughts and physical imbalances by accessing their spiritual guidance. True fulfillment, happiness, health, and wealth comes from living in alignment with your life purpose, interests, gifts, talents, and passions.

I love sharing my positive, lighthearted playful energy, a winning strategy for success. I help you accept your disowned parts and release deep feelings to consciously and powerfully activate your intuition, your InnerSuccess, a valuable tool for successful living.

If there was one thing you wish you knew before you began your business, what would that be? I wish I had more training on how to run a successful, profitable business before I was licensed. To experience success I continued implementing courses on business finances, working with insurance companies, and networking with other health practitioners and professionals.

I keep my word, show up on time and am at my best for each client and engagement to deliver inspiration, enthusiasm and transformation. I am generous and good-hearted, which is very fulfilling.

Toni Gattone. Pasadena, CA. © 2015 Mark Turner

How long have you been in business?  I’ve been in sales for four decades total, 26 years self-employed and I began my speaking career three years ago.

Why did you begin your business? As a Master Gardener, we have to find our own way to give back. When I discovered Adaptive Gardening, I knew this was an important subject I could get passionate about sharing and ripe to begin conducting public seminars.

What is your mission for your business?  To enable gardeners of all ages to: 1. change and adapt their gardens, 2. find new ways to garden in comfort and 3. adapt or replace their garden tools, so they can garden for life, with joy and without pain.

If there was one thing you wish you knew before you began your business, what would that be? How to methodize and monetize my business besides my two seminars. I am now exploring consulting opportunities and garden parties.

What is a guiding principle that you use in your business? Whether we’re talking about gardening or life, if we approach it with ease, comfort and joy, that’s what it’s all about.

What makes you a thriving woman in business? Caterina offered me a great tagline: “Thriving At Any Age” and I love it.

What do you love about being a thriving woman in business? The networking. Every one brings something different to the table and it’s fun exploring options and possibilities with other sharp entrepreneurial women.

What is the next big thing or dream for you in your business? I am contemplating that a lot these days. I have two questions I ask when I am meditating: “How can I best serve?” and “What is the most benevolent outcome?”

Nancy Karas
is our Thriving Woman of the Week!

Nancy Karas Headshot 3x4

How long have you been in business?  I started my business 22 years ago.

Why did you begin your business?  I had a huge career in Corporate America as the SVP of HR. I worked with so many people who were unhappy and completely dissatisfied with their careers and their lives. I wanted to provide people with the insider knowledge and the confidence they need to succeed and find the happiness they deserve.

What is your mission for your business?  My mission is to help people make their dreams a reality and to live truly successful and happy lives. I help my clients make huge transitions to obtain their career dreams, make their personal dreams come true and achieve their goals.

If there was one thing you wish you knew before you began your business, what would that be?  I wish I knew that fear is a liar. Everything I want is on the other side of fear. I also wish I had known that it was okay to hire people who are expert in things I am not, to do some of the work for me. You have to invest in yourself to succeed.

What is a guiding principle that you use in your business?  Take back your power and raise the bar. We tend to give our power away to others. We assume others have more than we do (older, younger, smarter, prettier, taller, luckier, wealthier) and so we must be inferior. I teach my clients to take back their power, know their worth, be comfortable with who they are and create the success and happiness they deserve.

What makes you a thriving woman in business?  I’m always willing to test and create new revenue streams for my business. I strive to remain current, relevant and highly adaptable. I reinvent my business yearly by adjusting my sails to navigate the changing needs of my clients and our society.

What do you love about being a thriving woman in business?  I absolutely love being my own boss and creating my own schedule.  I love that my work is a balance of barefoot in the backyard to all dressed up and speaking at corporate meetings and speaking engagements. I love realizing that the more I am my authentic self the more successful I am in my business. Most of all, I love that I can help so many people to live happy and successful lives and know that I will have helped to make the world a better place. Helping women to realize and find their own version of happiness and success is the best currency I could ever receive.

What is the next big thing or dream for you in your business?  I have been invited to be a guest Career expert for KTLA-TV. I love helping people on such a grand scale as so many more people can get the help they need at one time. My next big thing is to make this a long-term role on TV.

Audrey Fontaine is our Thriving Woman of the Week

Audrey Fontaine is our Thriving Woman of the Week

How long have you been in business?audrey-fontaine-white-background-high_res_print
I have been a Holistic Health Counselor since 2010, however have been studying health and nutrition for 36 years. My food preparation workshops have been occurring on a regular (now monthly) basis for 5 years.

Why did you begin your business?
It is through my own need for healing that I have gained the knowledge and experience to help others on their path. My personal struggles with digestive disease and multiple food sensitivities since childhood led me to try different approaches to find what would work best for me. In doing so, I have achieved a level of health that I could not have imagined for myself years ago.

What is your mission for your business?
It is my sincere desire to help women regain a more youthful, comfortable feeling in their bodies, and achieve a level of health and fitness that will lead to a happier, more fulfilling life!

If there was one thing you wish you knew before you began your business, what would that be?
I wish I had known better how to most effectively find the clients who would resonate with my approach. Instead of being open to serving everyone, I now find it much more fulfilling to have a focus on my niche market.

What is a guiding principle that you use in your business?
As a holistic health and nutrition practitioner I follow the Hippocratic oath, “First do no harm”, along with his principle “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.

What makes you a thriving woman in business?
I truly care about each woman that seeks out my services, offering them the best of my knowledge to help them on their path towards optimal health and their ideal weight. My counseling and teaching style is non-judgmental, patient, compassionate and understanding, while at the same time being focused, detail oriented and goal driven.

What do you love about being a thriving woman in business?
I love that I am able to create my business around my passions, and to continuously upgrade the services I offer to meet the needs and desires of my tribe.

What is the next big thing or dream for you in your business?
Beginning in October I will offer a “Third Tuesday Lunch & Learn” session monthly from 11-1, where we will create a raw, vegan and gluten free meal, including an appetizer or salad, entree and dessert. We will work hands-on as a group, then share our meal while discussing health and nutrition.

How can our readers connect with you?
