Katie Sonier - From Employee To Global Entrepreneur
Katie Sonier was working at a really popular gym in Miami as a personal trainer, and like many of you, she started up an Instagram page and started posting regularly. As her page started to grow to several thousand followers, she decided that she was ready to take her expertise to the next level.
She knew she wanted to build her personal brand and create her own online business, and that’s when she found out about me online. It was around April 2016.
She shared with me her goals and vision to see if I could help her go from being an employee to an entrepreneur.
And that’s when Team Katie was formed.
Once I knew what her unique goals and needs were, I was able to map out an online business strategy that would take Katie from being a regular trainer to an online global trainer and fitness influencer!
After we devised a rock-solid business plan, it was time to create Katie’s badass brand. Everything we did to build Katie Sonier’s online business was intentional, planned and deliberate, from branding to marketing to creating multiple income streams to positioning her as an influencer. We knew what the goal was, and everyone over at Team Katie dedicated their time, energy and focus to growing a successful fitness brand and business.
Here’s what Katie has to say:
“After talking with many people about the startup of my business and website, I knew immediately that Nash was the one I wanted to help me build my brand and website. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable in her field, she is so genuine as I have felt from the beginning that she has wanted to see me succeed. She goes above and beyond in her efforts. You can tell she loves what she does and she loves helping people. She’s always quick to respond, she’s patient, extremely organized, and I know I can ask her any little question and she will get that answer for me. It has been a pleasure working with Nash and I am so grateful for everything she has done for me and my business and so thankful we found her!”

The Results: Triple The Income In Less Than A Year!
Today, Katie’s online business generates multiple streams of income for her, and makes her 3x more money doing what she loves (while building her own brand and global empire) than working full-time as an elite trainer at fancy, well-known gyms, and is living her dreams.
In Just A Year And A Half Katie has already paved her path to being one of the top 10 trainers in Miami.
It’s been almost 1.5 years now that I’ve been running an online training business. And while there is nothing like working in person, one on one with someone, I find online training to be extremely rewarding as well. It’s been a fantastic way for me to reach and connect with women all over the world whom I may not had ever had a chance to work with had it not been for the online community. I have to admit that I was skeptical of it at first…how the hell can I actually help someone behind a keyboard? But, I’ve come to realize that social influence is a real thing and that I can truly change lives over the internet.
Katie’s story might look like your typical “overnight success story” but make no mistake… everything we did to build Katie Sonier online business was very intentional, planned and deliberate. We knew what the goal was and everyone over at Team Katie dedicated their time, energy and focus into growing a successful fitness brand and business.

I consider myself more of a life coach rather than a trainer. Every day I get the opportunity to change and transform lives by teaching all about fitness and health. That is so amazing to me! I believe that this is my life calling. This is my gift and I fully embrace it. I dedicate my life to empowering other women to live up their greatest potential. To not let the fear of failure hold them back. My goal is to help more women stand tall and OWN who they are, whether they are 4 foot tall or 6 foot tall like me.
