Get to know Katrina Widener, one of the top life coaches in Minneapolis, MN.

The best part of my job?

Watching entrepreneurs absolutely own it in their businesses.

That’s why I became their coach.

Hi, I’m Katrina, a former marketer, journalist, and social media manager turned entrepreneur coach who gets overly excited about helping small business owners feel empowered and find amazing growth in their businesses

Whether it’s watching a client tell me why they’re uniquely qualified in their profession, working together to create copy that sells, or seeing their eyes light up when they feel inspired to tackle a problem, working as a life and business coach has brought me more fulfillment than I ever knew I could get from a career.

You see, I get my greatest joy from working with people — encouraging, supporting, and motivating them to find the sweet spot in their businesses (and their lives).

I love coaching, and I love the entrepreneurs I coach even more. But most importantly, I love watching my clients flourish after just a few months of working together, helping them take control of their businesses, watching them kick subpar sales to the curb, and seeing their confidence soar. 

My entire life, I’ve known my purpose has been to help others. Now I get to call it my career as well.

  • You’ll usually find me dressed in black or other neutral tones (which conveniently hides the fur on my clothing from my cat Teddy).

  • I spent a few years working in the Food, Holidays, and Entertaining department of Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Therefore, I know way too much random knowledge about fall wreaths and macarons v. macaroons.

  • I have an aeronautical engineer as a father so I’ve traveled all over the world, including Malaysia, Uganda, Germany, England, Italy, Ireland, and other amazing locations. I’ve been flying standby several times a year for the entirety of my life.

  • I am an avid reader, going through 40-50 books a year.

  • I studied vocal performance for six years, even deciding to focus on it as a degree in college. That lasted one week total. (I ended up graduating with two degrees — one in journalism and the other in history.)
