I'm glad you are here. Before we get started, let me ask you some questions.
- Do you want to be the owner of a profitable small business?
- Do you want freedom and the ability to make an impact, and lead a movement?
- Do you hate selling but need to offer something to make money?
- Does technology put you in a panic?
- Are you terrified of hiring help or creating a business team?
- Do you know that you have something that can help others, but you don't know how to get started?
You’re in the right place!
I was in your exact situation. With a huge passion burning inside both to make an impact, and to make the money that would change our family's circumstances. Are you disenchanted with the benefits of pensions and paychecks because the time away from your family outweighs the daily grind? Or perhaps you are a stay-at-home mom who is ready to embark on an entrepreneurial venture. Your choices are limiting your options – you know you have so much more to give. But where do you start?
I know firsthand how frustrating building a profitable small business by yourself can be. Lack of clarity, being unsure of your “niche,” and the struggle to learn the jargon, craft a marketing strategy and overcome tech issues is all too real to me.

A personal note:
I’ve been where you are.
Like you, I’ve struggled with growing my business.
For years, my career was ministry. I wasn’t supposed to “sell” anything or even ask for money, ever. My husband and I were told to just “trust God” and donors to support our growing family.
But the real story behind the story is that when the recession hit about 2011 and God changed our ministry direction twice in a year and half, many of our donors took the opportunity to excuse themselves from their support. We were faced with finding a way to bring in income for ourselves if we wanted to stay in and continue to minster in Mexico. We didn’t have the money to go back to the States and raise more funds.
Remember in the movie The Sound of Music, when Maria says, “When God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window?” Well, in 2012, God opened a window.
We were homeschooling our children and realized there was no homeschool curriculum available to Spanish speaking families. It was then that a light came on!
I realized my undergraduate degree in teaching and my master’s in administration, and curriculum development offered a solution to offering homeschool options to Spanish-speaking families. We realized we had a solution for both needs, and we went to work creating the first ever literature-based homeschool curriculum completely in Spanish.
The Lemonhass® blog and curriculum made its debut online in Spring of 2012, along with the ParadisePraises.com blog for English speakers. When we sold our first e-book and saw our name in print on Amazon for the first time, we laughed and cried and pulled that window shut behind us, determined to never look back.
Sharing What I've Learned
When we launched, I remember telling my husband, “When we get to the point that our business is bringing in a regular income for us, I am going to teach other women how to do it too, so they can also experience the freedom that comes with working for yourself and earning money for your family.”
Those first few years were filled with long hours and many tears as I tried to learn all I needed to about WordPress, affiliate marketing, html codes, email service providers, branding, writing, graphic design and so much more. I kept going because I wanted to teach other women entrepreneurs to do this, making it easier for them. My mistakes and hard work could serve others.
I started coaching clients and opened The Blog Connection in April 2015, and hosting #BlogWell retreats in 2016 and have been helping women who have a passion to launch and grow an online business ever since.

Here's What My Coaching Clients are Saying…
“I cannot imagine launching my blog without Katie. There is so much to know and Katie makes it easy. She has the gift of patience and knowledge and her coaching will put you so much further ahead with your goals. Hire. Katie. Today!” – Susan Cox
“In October 2017, I had almost given up on my blog. I began coaching with Katie as a last ditch effort. In 3 months of working with her, my visitors, sessions and pageviews doubled, my subscribers increased by 700% and I made the first money I've ever made with my blog. But even more than that, I've gone from a hobby blogger to a businesswoman. Katie helped me train my brain to think that way. The best still though is that I've gained not only a blogging mentor but a friend who both understands what I'm trying to do and encourages my true calling. Coaching is not a magic pill, but if you put in the work, it can change everything for your business.I can't wait to see where we go from here.” – Samantha Hatcher

Katie's Coaching Client Stories
My client Betsi has gone from zero traffic to her travel blog to landing sponsored luxury vacations. Betsi says:
“If you're struggling to blog, struggling with tech, or to create a product or course, Katie Hornor is your woman! She is a teacher, and encourager and your biggest cheerleader. She helped me grow from hobby to business and take my blogging to a new level. She is my most valuable business growth tool. She is amazing!”
Susan has been a corporate copy writer for 30 years and recently made the decision to leave her job to launch her own fashion blog and freelance writing business.
My coaching clients are making more progress, faster and easier as they follow the steps I learned and avoid the mistakes I made.
Social Media Examiner recently reported that in 20 years, it’s expected that up to 70% of the entire workforce will be working remotely. Those corporate jobs are going away, and those who know how to work from home will be filling those positions. You don’t want to miss out on this entrepreneurial opportunity.
Are you currently in sales? Perhaps you’ll be like Kimi and start a DIY home decor blog and be paid by brands to share your favorite home and garden products with the world.
Are you an adoptive mom? Perhaps you’ll be the next Melissa, helping adoptive families thrive though online classes and virtual support sessions.
Or maybe you are great at creating recipes for those with special diets like my client Cathy.
Imagine how your blog can be life changing to your audience! I can help you do that!
You Have A Unique Selling Position
We both know that life doesn’t always take the path we hope it will. Real-life often finds doors shutting in our faces. Sure, we can force them open, but we can also choose to check the window, and often the window presents a view we weren’t expecting.
Whether you know it or not, you’ve probably developed a few skills you’ve never considered. Real-world skills. Instinctual skills. Flexible, endurance-based skills.
These are the very skills you can use to create a successful, meaningful, and even profitable brand. And I’m the person that can help you do it. I’ve taken the same care and attention to detail I needed to make it as a missionary, teacher, pioneer in the Spanish homeschool curriculum market, and business-owner straight into marketing and coaching.
My Accomplishments as A Female Entrepreneur
I’ve created and marketed over 24+ courses and self-published a complete preschool to sixth grade homeschool curriculum, plus over 50+ other book titles.
I’ve made it to multiple Amazon best seller lists.
I've spoken on international stages about education and business topics.
I’ve helped homeschool bloggers, travel bloggers, lifestyle bloggers, financial teachers, Bible podcasters and more – launch profitable online businesses that have given them the platform to follow their dreams and work from anywhere. (Check my testimonials page; they can’t say enough about our work together)
I’ve used our influence to support Revive our Hearts in their mission of training the next generation of Christian leaders worldwide.
My mission is to help message-passionate individuals like you to be the best YOU possible so your people can be the best they can be and the legacy can continue. Don’t wait! Let’s get your message to those you can help and are waiting for someone like you!

Let’s work together now. Don’t waste one more minute trying to make sense of how to be a successful online business owner. Stop paying hundreds, thousands or more dollars on training programs that always promise the moon yet somehow under-deliver.
