Some learn from books, others learn from brunch. When it comes to self-improvement, Katrina Cohens believes that in order to make a difference in her clients’ lives, she has to meet them where they are most comfortable, be it through an online class or over eggs and mimosas.
“I want to continue to focus on growing my business, and help my clients become the best versions of themselves,” says the life coach and founder of CohensConsulting.biz. That’s why she experiments with a variety of formats for her coaching services, including one-on-one digital coaching and live events. The certified Master Life/Leadership Coach and women’s empowerment facilitator just wrapped up her flagship event of the summer, “A Highly Qualified & Blessed Brunch” on August 5 at the Serenity Entertainment Complex in Macon, Georgia, where she is based. “This event was extremely motivational and powerful!” notes Cohens. The brunch featured dishes by Catered Events-Donie Hogan, amazing speakers, and stress-free networking opportunities. Most importantly, Cohens writes, “We were able to support and celebrate each other.”
Year round, Cohens reaches her clients in other creative ways. During the winter she hosts a Zoom series titled the “3 Ps to Success: Purpose, Productivity, and Process.” The digital courses focus on how to build an action plan for achieving personal and professional goals. This past spring, she was a panelist for Career Women’s Network and Macon Magazine; the event at Hotel Forty-Five featured other leaders from the corporate, entrepreneurship, nonprofit, and higher education fields to discuss “The Art of Networking.”
Whether it be live panels or digital webinars, Cohens says no matter the format, her events and services are designed to motivate. To keep clients current, the coach and entrepreneur expertly uses her website, CohensConsulting.Biz. While the coach focuses on productivity, as a solopreneur, she is also focused on prices. That’s why she opted for the professional domain of .biz. “It was available at a great price!” she says.
Here Cohens shares more about her consulting business and how she uses her .biz website to showcase her achievements as a local entrepreneur in Macon, GA.
