About Kathryn

Originally from Northern Ireland, I have been living and working in France since 1994. I hold a B.A.(Hons) degree in European Business Studies and a Master’s degree in Technical Writing and Translation.

From corporate executive to freelance professional

After a corporate career spanning 18 years in various sectors of industry, during which I held executive positions in Sales & Marketing, Project Management and Economic Intelligence, I set up my first freelance business as a technical translator in Nantes in 2012 (LanguageApart).

Taking my freelance business to the next level

I discovered the GET CLIENTS NOW!TM book in early 2014, at a time when I was frustrated with the feast-or-famine nature of my business and the relatively low rates I was being paid by my clients. By applying the principles outlined in the book, I increased my turnover by 40% that year through prospecting new translation clients willing to pay me higher rates for my services. Since then, I have also been able to negotiate significantly higher prices with my existing clients, and I continue to increase my turnover each year. Today, my marketing efforts are so effective that I have prospects contacting me on a regular basis! I can directly credit the success of my translation business to the marketing plan I implemented thanks to the GET CLIENTS NOW!TM system. 

In 2015, I joined the Board of a non-profit organization (Fédération Nationale des Autoentrepreneurs et Microentrepreneurs) that works to advise, train and empower self-employed professionals. This led me to launch a new business activity in professional training. From there, it seemed a natural and logical step to become a licensed GET CLIENTS NOW!TM facilitator. Thanks to my experience, I can provide other freelance professionals with the insights and support necessary to create and/or grow their freelance activity and achieve sustainable business results – while also enjoying greater work-life balance!
