She saw expansion in all the areas of her life that she had set out to improve.  Kate has wanted to give back to others as a result and is now serving as a Coach for our clients.

Leading up to this, Kate’s career has been in the areas of an HR Executive and Insurance Executive for the past 22 years in the corporate world.  She has led and coached numerous teams and direct reports, supporting their success as professionals and helping them to develop the skillsets they needed to grow.  Kate’s desire to live a more inspired life in the work she does each day has led her to pursue coaching full time.

RYAN SMITH

CLIENT SERVICES SPECIALIST

Ryan, from the Great State of Texas, started his professional career in the U.S. Military and eventually transitioned into Federal Law Enforcement.  In 2014, Ryan made a drastic career change and traded his badge and handcuffs for a business of his own.

He started his entrepreneur life like every other beginner with little knowledge of business and not much support!  At the same time, he was supporting a beautiful wife, 4 kids, and 3 dogs…big dogs! 

By 2018, Ryan had built a successful business which he sold that year.  On the heels of selling his first company, Ryan opened and built a second company which became equally successful and was eventually acquired by a larger corporation.  In 2020, Ryan began sharing his 20 years’ of experience and knowledge with other business owners and executives in an effort to help them avoid and overcome the struggles he experienced in his own executive lifestyle.    

Today, Ryan is living his dream of sharing his knowledge and skills with people across the world who are ready to take control of their lives. And, ready to build a happy and healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families through the Anxiety Free Executive.
