"I struggled to justify raising my rates...Now, I've raised my rates...launched 2 online companies...whittled down debt...Better yet, I know my worth..."
I'm a hard-working farm girl from the Midwest, but had hit the ceiling on how much I could make because there’s only so much of me to go around and I struggled to justify raising my rates. I knew I had issues with money - believing in my own worth, fear about having enough for retirement, but I didn’t realize how deep they ran and didn’t know how to overcome them.
It never occurred to me to seek help with this, but I found myself at one of Katy’s workshops and knew right then I needed her help.
Fun fact: my husband is a financial advisor. I know more than any muggle should about IRA’s, budgeting, investing, and so on. What I didn’t know was how to lose my fears and feelings of deprivation around money.
It really was one of the last things holding me back. I’m known for my feisty, get-shit-done attitude, yet I wasn’t making nearly what I wanted, and it was wearing me down. Katy’s gentle guidance helped me discover the sources of my issues, and with just the right amount of pushing, she helped me break through some deeply-rooted beliefs that no longer served me.
Now, I’ve raised my rates, which allows me to have fewer clients and provide better service. I’ve hired a subcontractor and two interns. I launched two online companies, one of which has already (within 6 months) attracted attention from potential partners and investors. I’ve whittled down debt. I was even able to pay for a very expensive medical procedure with cash.
Better yet, I know my worth and have left behind the fear and deprivation that used to result in taking on clients that weren’t a good fit and feeling overworked and resentful.
I wish I'd found her sooner!
Katy’s work is the kind of thing you don’t realize you need until you get it. Trust me - you need it. And she has a kind, gentle way about her that allows you to let down and fully embrace the work. I cannot recommend her enough!
"Just 2 weeks after I began working with her 1:1, I sold out my group coaching program in 24 hours."
Katy Chen Mazzara is an incredible coach. I love her holistic approach to financial wellbeing! Just 2 weeks after I began working with her 1:1, I sold out my group coaching program in 24 hours. Now I have a solid plan for how to manage my finances moving forward and I feel confident in my ability to make money as a small business owner, stay out of debt, and create a stable financial future for myself. Katy does an amazing job of teaching the techniques and strategies while also transforming your mindset throughout the duration of the program. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the financial ups and downs of running your own business I would highly recommend working with Katy to help you feel more financially secure and empowered.

"Boy were my expectations blown away. Not only did I almost DOUBLE my income and draw in unbelievable professional opportunities in my time with Katy, but I felt a profound and final shift into truly understanding my worth, deep down in my bones."
Working with Katy was the absolute best thing I did for myself in 2018 - and I had a big year of leaving my 9-5 to start my own company. But still, working with Katy takes the cake. I honestly went into financial coaching as a skeptic. I had done years of personal development work and felt my self worth was at an all time high, but for some reason I was still struggling with personal finances. I wasn't sure what financial coaching would do besides giving me some practical steps to take with my money, but boy were my expectations blown away. Not only did I almost double my income and draw in unbelievable professional opportunities in my time with Katy, but I felt a profound and final shift into truly understanding my worth, deep down in my bones. I worked through childhood memories I hadn't thought about in years, released old stories, got clear on my core values and what it truly means to take care of myself, and was amazed as that translated into transforming all areas of my life - from my home to my health to even being ready for another serious relationship. I cannot say enough about the transformative power of Katy's work. If you have any small inkling that this might be for you, don't hesitate. I know it will reap the rewards of this investment for the rest of my life!
I more than doubled my income from the previous year. Even though I had booked a commercial before we met, Katy was a major influence on helping us to allow that financial flow to exist, and really guided us on how to spend that money.
Within minutes of talking to her I knew Katy was a perfect fit for us. She put us at ease immediately. I was drawn to Katy because of her approach. She combines the practical side of finances with the artistic side. As an actor this was very appealing to me.
I am forever grateful to her for helping us tackle a huge amount of debt. During our time with Katy we paid off two credit cards and a home equity loan. This accomplishment, I believe, was achieved through a combination of financial planning, manifesting, staying positive and sticking to our goals - all things Katy helped us with tremendously.
My wife and I are now on the same page in terms of our approach to finances. While working with Katy we were able to speak open and honestly about a lot of our money issues. This communication with Katy and each other has given us a sense of calm and relief. My wife was a little hesitant before a couple of our sessions. After every session, we both always felt so much better. We both have a strong sense that there is a financial light at the end of the tunnel.
(Taken from the video, not verbatim): Financial Coaching with Katy was one of the best gifts I've given myself! I'm a working actor/performer, and I knew I wanted to articulate more financial goals for myself and I also wanted to be more comfortable and confident in talking about money and understanding my money, how I can make the most of it, be taken care of as as artist because we're not taught about the business side of entertainment/acting.
I wanted to define goals for myself, both artistically and financially, and I wanted to work with someone who can help me achieve those goals. Working with Katy was such a wonderful eye-opening experience. She's a creative herself, a producer who's worked behind-the-scenes, so it's a great opportunity to talk to her about what that looks like.
What's also wonderful about her program is that it's much more holistic. She draws from a lot of different modalities, and the way she asks you questions to help you unpack belief systems. We talk about retirement, financial planning and budgeting but in a place that's non-judgmental, that's comfortable and safe. She's a wonderful communicator who makes you feel at ease, which I really appreciated because sometimes talking about money can be uncomfortable.
I now feel so much more confident about my retirement because I'm on track. So, I've come out of the program with more confidence, access to information, and tools that are going to really help me on this journey. So, if you are a creative and are thinking about working with a financial coach, please just do it. Work with Katy! You'll be so glad that you did.
My husband and I worked with Katy for 8 weeks and it was such a transformative experience both personally and for our marriage. Having the opportunity to focus on core values, spending habits, budgeting, short and long terms goals, gave me a new appreciation for finances. Katy helped us put a plan in place to pay off some major debt using an approach that helped us feel empowered and motivated. My husband and I come from very different family dynamics which had been causing conflict in our relationship. Katy helped give us new perspectives while offering suggestions on ways to support one another. As a psychotherapist, I work with couples who have major financial conflict and I refer all of them to Katy because I can personally speak to her expertise and empathic demeanor. I am forever grateful for this experience!
"In just a few weeks of working together, I was called for a big job with a six-figure salary...A year and 3 months later, I've paid of $35K of debt..."
As a creative entrepreneur, I was struggling to pay my bills month to month and seriously stressed out. As Katy carefully walked me through her financial fun sheet exercises, shame was replaced with facts and a plan. In just a few weeks of working together, I was called back for a big job with a six-figure salary and went on to get it. A year and three months later, I've paid off $35K of debt, and am on track for a down payment on a home. With Katy's sound wisdom and inspiring teacher mindset, I finally feel like I've got the financial basics down. I recommend Katy to anyone looking to transform their money mindset from the inside out and finally break through those long-held blocks to fulfill your full potential.

"Working with Katy opened my eyes to profound shifts that have changed my life."
Before I started working with Katy Chen Mazzara, I felt financially illiterate. Growing up, financial decisions were taken care of for me, so I didn't understand the true value of money or how to make it work for me. I also had to figure out my family's business at a young age and would often feel overwhelmed, frustrated or angry. Working with Katy opened my eyes to profound shifts that have changed my life. She showed me where my money blocks came from, what my values are, my purpose in this life, and how to set boundaries, so I can be as generous as I want to be and not be taken advantage of. Because of Katy's coaching I was able to pay off a credit card and am bringing in more money, than when we first started working together. My relationships with family and friends are even stronger now! As someone who was an athlete for most of my life, having a coach really makes sense for me to get to the next level and increase my money performance. I can't thank Katy enough for giving me the skills I now use every day!

"I'm well on my way to having over $1,000,000 (yes 1 million dollars!!) in my retirement fund...and best of all, I did not have to make unrealistic sacrifices to implement any of my goals!"
Katy Chen Mazzara's Money Mentoring program has completely transformed my relationship with money! Prior to this program, I found myself in a cycle of repeatedly maxing out & paying off my credit cards, unable to save or keep money in savings for an extended period of time, and fearfully avoidant when it came to planning for retirement.
My money beliefs went from being rooted in scarcity & not-enoughness to being rooted in empowerment & strong decision-making! As a single women with a successful career, this has been such a game changer; not only to my relationship with money, but to my self-esteem & my positive belief in my financial future!
I am now in a position where the money I save for vacation is earning me interest throughout the year, I'm aggressively paying off credit card debt, I am maintaining a budget, I'm well on my way to having over $1,000,000 (yes 1 million dollars!!) in my retirement fund by the time I reach 65, and best of all, I did not have to make unrealistic sacrifices to implement any of my goals!
If the words budget, savings, investing, retirement fund or credit card debt scare you or make you uncomfortable, THIS program is for YOU! Katy will transform your relationship with money, just as she has mine & you will not regret this investment in yourself!

"For the first time in a very long time, I actually had more money in my checking account at the end of the month!"
When I first started working with Katy, I had a lot of limiting beliefs around money. I did not trust myself with money and thought being good with money was a gift I just didn't have. Katy's approach to coaching was perfect for me because she works on both the emotional/spiritual side as well as the nuts and bolts side of finance. She has this strong yet compassionate demeanor that made me feel safe and secure so I was able to be vulnerable and dig deep into what was blocking me. Her gift of being able to hold space while teaching me about the balance between spending, earning, and saving was exactly what I needed. To be clear, Katy is not all about the "woo woo" stuff. She teaches practical finance management, which something I never really learned...and I'm 51 years old! For the first time in a very long time, I actually had more money in my checking account at the end of the month! I'm also no longer afraid of looking at my bank account daily and keeping on top of my finances. Her services are desperately needed because most of us don't have these skills and we get into a lot of debt without a way out. I absolutely feel like I received tons of value and knowledge that will not only help me but also my family. Don't wait or hesitate! Grab Katy now before she gets too busy!
