EP 63: How a Divorce Birthed Her BIG Idea, with Kate McKibbin of $5K Funnel Formula

Kate McKibbin

I adore this episode so so much, not only because our guest talks about how you can use funnels to supercharge your business and gives you some awesome tips and tools to do that... but also because she used her own experience of going through a divorce to fuel her vision for her brand and her products. Her mission was to automate her business such that it didn’t rely on her. I call her the “OG of Passive Income” because she really nailed how to get your business firing on all cylinders while allowing you to sip margaritas in Mexico. And who doesn’t want that??

Way back in 2007 (after cutting her teeth in the magazine industry) Kate McKibbin started her first blog, Drop Dead Gorgeous (DDG) Daily from scratch. She called it her "shoe money project," because she started it so she could occasionally afford some of the amazing shoes she wrote about all day long in her day job. Kate always thought of it as a business rather than a blog though, and it worked as DDG became her full-time gig in under 12-months, and continued to grow to have over 500,000 readers a month, with multiple 6-figure revenue and 5 staff. Then she did it all again at KateMcKibbin.com (yes, formerly known as Secret Bloggers' Business), which Kate started in 2014 and since then she has been lucky enough to help over 3,000 bloggers, coaches and infopreneurs to create profitable business doing what they love.

This week our show is brought to you by our introductory Getting Unstuck Program, which is a FREE course. I can speak from my own personal experience as to how fearful and anxious I was at times once I stepped out on my own and decided to build my own consulting business,. I had a vision and a mission, but I wasn’t sure if it was going to work and how it was all going to come together. I pushed passed the fear and then enlisted my own advice, which is detailed out in Goal Magic’s Getting Unstuck Program, and I can tell you honestly and with complete sincerity that this stuff works, folks! I now have 3 signed contracts and more inquiries about my work than I can manage in any given day. If you want those same results and to find that path forward in whatever way you want to get unstuck, then enroll now at www.goalmagic.co/getunstuck. This is different from our usual emails that we send from time to time so if you want IN on this, sign your badass self up and work your way to freedom, my friends!
