She challenges you to think of what is possible… and then go for it! Katie is very candid about her life and the hardships she faced after the death of her brother and being diagnosed with a chronic incurable disease. 

Where others might have given up, Katie kept going, and she is now a CEO and best-selling author, sharing her experience and insights with you. Katie explains her five rules for life and how they have helped her take the reins of her journey. She talks about the importance of showing up, trusting your intuition, and letting go of your attachments. After all, it’s up to you to build your path to possibility.
