I’m Kate O’Mealley, small business mentor, copywriter and your ‘business bestie’.

Starting a small or micro business can feel like a mammoth task.

You have a brilliant and niche idea, but you are wondering “where do I start?!” or “how do I run a business?”

You don’t need to go it alone. I’ve got your back.

As a copywriter and small business owner for over a decade, I bring my first-hand experiences to be your small business mentor – or as I like to call it, your ‘business bestie’. A combination of friend, sounding board, support crew and cheer squad – I’ll help you set goals, raise your confidence, brainstorm new ideas and keep you accountable (in the nicest way possible)!

So, let me help you get things right the first time around – saving time, money and headaches – and giving you time to focus on what you love to do. Your business!

Let’s sit down for a chat over a coffee (either in person in Wollongong or via Zoom) and together we’ll get your business ready for success.

Choose a service that works for you!

It could be new website copywriting, marketing brochures, refining your message or choosing a ‘Business Bestie’ Mentoring Package – I can help you to communicate better and plan for success.
