What would you do if you weren't afraid?

Imagine your future self for a moment - you know, that amazing, happy, successful version of you that exists 5, 10 or 15 years from now. She's pretty cool, right? Maybe she's running her own business, or has a really great job working for an organisation where she is really valued, surrounded by fab people. Outside of her working life she is really fulfilled and has great friends and does lots of fun things. 

Well I am here to remind you that the stuff you do today, tomorrow, this week, month and year are the things that are going to help you get closer to that version of you. The trouble is that we are doing lots of things that actually get in the way of us taking action on things that would get us closer to our true desires. 

We tell ourselves excuses like we are too busy, we don't have enough time/money/energy, and we will get round to getting started next week/month/year. I'm not saying you're not busy - we are all juggling a million and one things - but are we really too busy for even the teeniest, tiniest baby steps we could take today that would help us to move closer towards what we want?

I know that there are many of you who are hiding behind these excuses because you are actually really afraid. And I know that because I have been there and got the t-shirt! We are afraid of being visible and putting ourselves 'out there' too much, of getting out of our comfort zones, of putting our head above the parapet and shining. It's easier for us to stay playing small, to stay in the shadows, to keep dimming our light so that we fit in. 

It's time to stop that from happening! 

I am launching a brand new, online Leadership Mindset Academy for women who are ready to stop playing small and start moving towards the future version of themselves that they know they want to be. 

In this programme we will get really focused on what is getting in your way of achieving your goals. We are going to push through your self-limiting beliefs, mindset blocks, and identify the self-sabotaging behaviours that are blocking your success. 

You will learn the wide variety of practical tools and techniques that I have personally used to overcome my own adversities. 

  • Make peace with your past and understand that this context does not dictate your future success.

  • Embrace your feelings and start to heal any pain you've experienced that could be holding you back.

  • Manage your mindset so that you can approach whatever life throws at you with inner-strength.

  • See that sometimes it is the fear of success that scares us the most, and help you to work through concerns such as judgment from others.

  • Get comfortable with change and learn ways to help you to be more resilient.

  • Work out what you really, really want from your life and how to take action towards getting there.

  • Forgive and let go of things that you can’t change, so that you can live with more inner peace and acceptance.

  • See that they are the CEO of your own life and explore the relationships you have with people around you.

  • Learn how to protect your energy so that you can give the best of yourself in every aspect of your life.

  • Reflect and reframe the relationship you have with yourself so that you can love and accept yourself just the way they are.


Ultimately I will uncover that inner confidence that is already inside of you so that you can stand out and shine, so that you can reach your highest potential.

You are the CEO of your own life - the power is in your hands. 


Let's explore the CEO version of you...


You would BE...

  • Unapologetic about taking up space and time (heroes walk slowly)

  • Confident in your own skin (you'd accept yourself for who you are)

  • Showing up and shining (rather than playing safe and small)


You would DO...

  • Things out of your comfort zone (because you’d feel the fear and do it anyway)

  • Life on your terms as much as possible (because you’re the boss)

  • As much as you could to make your life easier (surrounding yourself with a brilliant personal board of directors)


You would HAVE...

  • A winning mindset (you wouldn't look left and right at what others were doing)

  • Resilience and a strength of character (to cope with what life throws your way)

  • Success (whatever that looks like to you)

It's never to late to become who you want to be...

The Leadership Mindset Academy is a self-led programme which covers 10 modules, which are drip-fed over 6 weeks.


You will be invited to join a private Facebook group where you will have direct access to Kate Cousens, as well as a community of like-minded women who you can learn and share with.


This is a judgment-free zone, and a safe-space where you can show up and shine exactly as you are.
