About the Creator

Katie Sullivan

Katie is a writer, speaker, and teacher specializing in the area of personal development, healing, and wellness.


After successfully overcoming the hardships of a turbulent childhood, faith transition, career change, and a nearly-failed marriage, Katie has been able to identify the key principles to surviving adversity, and rising above it for a life happily-lived.


In her 30 short years on Earth so far, Katie has learned the importance of one small truth: you only live once (#yolo). Far too many people wallow in their own suffering for a lifetime, because they never had anyone to show them their strength.


Katie believes we should all help each other make the most of the privilege of life and our time together on this planet.  She now shares her message with men & women around the world, looking for a lighted path toward happiness & fulfillment.


It’s not over till it’s over. Your story isn’t finished yet, and the final chapters tend to be the best ones.

A quote for inspiration

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”


-F. Scott Fitzgerald
