“There is NO ONE I trust more then Katie when it comes to business. Whenever I have a challenging decision or am navigating unchartered territory, she is the first person I call.

Katie is extremely intuitive, and not just on an interpersonal level. She is able to sense industry trends before they even happen and can feel into the direction the collective is moving like no one else I know. Many people pay lip service to thought leadership, but Katie literally lives and breaths it.

When Katie and I met, I was unhinged from a breakup and settling for a job that was fine, but not spectacular. I longed for soul-enlivening relationships, meaningful work, deep love and the ability to travel the world. Fast-forward 4 years: I quit my job to coach full-time and travel, and now spend my days working with the coolest women on the planet (and getting paid well for it). I know this is just the beginning, and none of it would have been possible without Katie. I’ve never seen anyone with her ability to call people forth (I am living proof). Generous, wise, fierce, and wildly insightful, Katie is someone you want in your corner.”

“When I learned more about the IGC Mastermind I was hooked!

I now look forward to my calls each day. I think about Monday because I can jump on not one but TWO calls! I have already learned so much about myself. I have laughed, cried and connected. I have made friends in Honduras and England. Being a part of a group of supportive and like-minded women has opened up the opportunity for abundance and joy. Katie DePaola is so welcoming, the women are real and it’s refreshing. If you want a community of supportive women who really care, this is the place to glow!”

“If I’m being completely honest, when Katie and I started working together, I was sad and disconnected from myself. I had been working hard at so many areas of my life but nothing ever felt fully satisfying. I was putting in the time at work, getting a master’s degree and ‘moving up,’ but I didn’t love my life. I kept thinking if I did more, learned more, earned more, I’d be happy.

I was also working so hard to turn an unhealthy relationship into something it wasn’t. I kept thinking if I were thinner, prettier, nicer, a better cook, a better dancer even, he would treat me better. This kept me in a constant state of anxiety, so of course, I had to fix that. I saw doctors, therapists, acupuncturists, psychiatrists and more. Eventually, I felt I either needed to run away or give my life a total overhaul.

Enter coaching with Katie. I remember being on the treadmill after one of our sessions and realizing it was time to stop living for everyone else and start living for myself. I wasn’t living in alignment with my desires; I was living to check the boxes: college, career, house, boyfriend. Of course I was miserable.

I worked with Katie for over two years. I quit my job, trained as a coach, started my business, left the bad relationship, started a better one and had my two sons.

Now, there’s so much to look forward to: a growing business, building Inner Glow Circle and opening a pitbull rescue! Thank you, Katie, for sticking with me for all these years!”

“When I started working with Katie, I was about to enroll in IIN (Institute of Integrative Nutrition). I knew it would be helpful to work with a coach myself, but I was hesitant. I needed to work on so many things: body image, emotional eating, leaving my career and starting a new one.

I knew extra support would help, but I had NO idea how much it would change my life.

I knew our work was ‘working’ when I started to get my yoga and coaching businesses off the ground. My resistance had been SO strong, and I truly needed the support, structure and accountability of coaching. When I look back to where I was two years ago and compare it with where I am today, it’s incredible.

I changed my career path. I got engaged, then married. I moved to the Bahamas with my now husband. I became a yoga teacher, co-founded a yoga studio and built a coaching practice full of women I love. Katie has been there every step of the way.

WOne day, Katie gave me an exercise. Every time I heard my inner critic going on about how I wasn’t thin enough (or any other disempowering thought), all I had to do was talk to it. The practice was to say, “I hear you, AND I choose a more empowering thought.” This literally changed my life and is something I still use with my coaching clients today. Because of this work, I RARELY ever hear that voice anymore. It’s actually amazing.

Today, the possibilities are endless. I have a full-time coaching and yoga business, which provides the amazing opportunity to impact women on a daily basis. I’m finally living into my purpose and loving it.”

“There was an instant connection when I reached out to Katie. Our work together guided me through some of the toughest moments I’ve had to face in my adult life. Her attitude and reflections helped me remain focused on my goals despite the external chaos around me. After four months of working together, I can say with confidence that her approach works. And it works REALLY well. She challenged me, walked with me and celebrated with me. It touched my heart and helped take my life to the next level professionally and personally. I found Katie at the exact time I was meant to — and I am forever changed in the very best way possible.”

“I remember a time when I said my gratitude was broken. Well sitting here, I just had a moment of PURE gratitude. Gratitude for you, and all that you have been to me on this journey. I am a firm believer that every person comes into our lives for a specific reason (sacred contracts?), and you truly have been a blessing to have on this journey of self discovery I’m on. I know it’s your job, but you definitely got something a little extra special. I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you for locking arms with me.”

“This morning, as I was getting dressed, I looked at myself in the mirror and felt attractive, empowered, beautiful and strong. I love myself — mind, body, soul — and no one can take that away from me. I continue to acknowledge the investment I’ve made in myself over the last couple months. This is the most balanced and focused and loved I’ve felt in a very long time, if ever. A number on a scale, a guy or one decision doesn’t change that.
Self-investment — coaching — is a continuous process, not just a success or failure. Thank you for inspiring and motivating me, Katie. I cannot express enough gratitude for the lessons you’ve helped me learn.”

“Katie, this process has been transformational.

A lot of things have happened in my life since January, and this process with you has been a big part of my world. I feel light, excited about the future and happy about what’s happening now. After spending years in the sadness of infertility, anxiety about money and feeling stuck in many ways, I feel fresh and optimistic. Thanks for being my partner in this journey.”

“I recently made the decision to change career paths and dive into coach training, with an end goal of starting my own health coaching business. However, the thought of starting a business was overwhelming and stressful. I felt lost about where to begin. Katie asked the right questions to help me breakthrough my fears around starting a business. She helped me focus on why I wanted to start a business in the first place and encouraged me to shift my mindset from ‘starting a business’ to ‘starting my passion project.’ We created a 10 step action plan for how to get my passion project off the ground

Coaching has the ability to offer new insight and perspective that you might not discover on your own.

Katie has an infectious energy that motivated me to get moving on pursuing my dreams. She’s a great mentor and coach to have in your corner!” .

“Katie! Are you sure you don’t have a magic wand? I feel like you may sleep with one under your pillow. You remind me of Cinderella’s fairy godmother!

Just prompting me to get my desires out on paper and into the universe is helpful in manifesting! Here are the wins I wouldn’t have had over the last 60 days without you ladies in IGC:

Thanks to a call Katie did, I started trusting the Universe more. I trusted I would be supported and started leaning in from a place of love vs. scarcity. I’m really, really ready to nest! But how the hell am I going to come up with this downpayment in a matter of a couple of months? Is the money going to fall from the sky? Well, it did quite literally fall from the sky. Normally I’d feel guilty or bad about accepting such a gift, but I don’t.

I have been on an antidepressant for 8ish years, ever since losing my fiancé. I felt more supported by IGC in my first 30 days than I felt by the many therapists I’ve worked with in the last 8 years. I’ve been antidepressant free for about 30 days now, and I can finally feel again.

Lots of unexplainable synchronicities have been showing up in my life. Yesterday, I told a friend I really wanted to meet Brené Brown! 30 minutes later she announced she’ll be speaking down the road from me this Fall. I’m going!!!

I’m going to be using my yoga teacher certification this Fall. I’ve been sitting on it out of fear, but I have rented a gorgeous space and will be running a fertility yoga and support group for women going through infertility.

I attribute the above to myself, but also much of it to IGC. I couldn’t have done it without this supportive group!”

“Since working with Katie, I am so much more connected to myself.

I feel more confident in my own skin than I have in my entire life. My relationships are stronger, I’m actually doing work I care about and I’m experiencing more joy every day. She has helped me get real with myself about what I want and provided enormous support and accountability in making what at first seemed totally impossible, my reality. Also, she’ll call you on your shit — in the best way.”

Life is a lot to handle when you feel like you’re flying solo. Let’s talk. If nothing else, I promise I’ll make you laugh. 🙂
