My personal journey began with my mother passing away when I was very young, leaving me as an orphan to be raised by my grandparents.
I understand your desire to succeed in business. I have had the heart of an entrepreneur since my youth, and when I was just a child I asked my grandmother for a patch of land to grow vegetables on. I worked the land myself, sweating, carrying fresh water from the river to my tiny patch of land. Selling eggplant to the public was a success, but it was short lived.
My grandmother became a guiding force in my life, and she urged me to leave my business dreams behind and move from our home in Uganda to England to further my studies and become a Registered Nurse. As a nurse I have worked in both the private sector and the National Health Service. I have had a wonderful career, but have always been nagged by my dream of having my own business
A few years ago I was invited to a free seminar in London, and the speakers there talked about making money online. I didn’t get the concept at the time, but the speakers were very good and I thought the figures were too good to be true.
I became more and more interested, attending other seminars and events, learning from many mentors and programs about this Online Business journey. One thing kept jumping out at me – if these mentors were so great, why did so many fail at building an online business?
I joined several programs, and developed an obsession about learning why some had great success and so many failed. What could the average person use to move from failure to success?
My passion is to find a success formula – or a variety of success formulas to enable people to live out their dreams and build a successful online business. To accomplish this, I am on a journey to interview successful entrepreneurs, discover the secrets to their success and share them with you.
You can expect to find great content here, from shiny nuggets of information to amazing, life-changing ideas that can help you build and grow your business faster than ever before!
Won’t you join me on this Online Success Journey? You can always find my top posts here, and please reach out to me if I can help you along the way.

About the show
Everything is Workable is a podcast that explores the fundamental workability of life. Through personal reflections & interviews, Kaitlyn works to share the many paths we can take to be of benefit. She invites guests to share their practice
& the tools that help them with whatever they may encounter in their life, be it Orisha, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian or something of their own making.
An audio engineer with a passion for social engagement & 2 to 5 hours a month to work on show production. (It’s a bonus if you live in Vancouver, Canada but not a requirement.)
Perks for you
As it says above, this is currently an unpaid role, but as soon as there’s funding, early collaborators will be the first to see it.
I’m not gonna do that annoying ‘think of the exposure’ or ‘this will be good for your portfolio’. That’s for YOU to decide & not a selling point.
The perk I want to offer with this position is an opportunity for you to use your skills to be of benefit. If you’ve been lamenting how you can help contribute to making the world a bit kinder, this is an opportunity for that.
Of course you will be credited for your work in every episode you help produce, & I will totally sing your praises, offer myself up as a reference & treat you to dinner as often as I can.
About this project
Sonam Press is the seed of an idea for a customised, cooperative approach to book production & publishing. While working on the publication of Friends We Haven’t Met, Kaitlyn conceived of the idea of a co-operative publishing house that could work collaboratively with authors from editing to design to printing & distribution.
Sonam Press will also specialise in bringing marginalised voices out of the margins. This isn’t about tokenism, it’s about accurate representation & an honest reflection of the world in which live.
An editor with a great eye for detail & a desire to see intersectional main characters & skin tones that don’t sound like the description of a dessert menu.
Someone with a background in or knowledge of Canadian corporate law looking to use these skills for social action.
Writers with completed manuscripts featuring characters that move away from tired tropes & challenge what we think it means to be a hero, an American or ‘average’. Essayists (bloggers) who write thought provoking pieces & have a growing body of work. Poets with pieces that inspire contemplation & self-reflection.
Perks for you

Have you ever felt absolutely exhausted or unable to complete tasks? Do you feel completely drained from the busyness of life? This was me, and this is where The Success 101 Podcast began…
After running a full time financial planning practice for several years, coaching and developing other financial advisors, and still trying to find time for my wife and 3 kids at home, I hit an absolute wall of burnout and fatigue, both mentally and physically. I was no longer able to just “muscle it through” as life and business quickly came racing my way. I knew I wasn’t living up to my full potential and wanted a new direction toward living my best each day. I also began noticing that others in life and business, who once had a life of energy and zest for their professions and families, were also burning out at very young ages.
My goal for creating this podcast was centered on helping others find a way to live more optimal, through new concepts and ideas, and to prevent others from experiencing burnout, fatigue, and an unproductive mindset. My hope is that the strategies discussed on this podcast help you to live a life of maximum potential, and allow you to crush your personal and professional goals like never before.
