Katy Calls BS

By Katy Miller | Miller Social

Katy Miller is a course creation coach and social media strategist with over 15 years of experience in education and business. After spending six years in the networking marketing industry, she decided to start her own business helping entrepreneurs stand out on social media. It quickly became overwhelming and she burned out, twice. If you, like Katy, are tired of the overwhelming amount of information we have access to these days and are confused about where to even begin, you’re in the right place! Katy is on a mission to breakdown the BS in life, business and motherhood in a no BS way.

All the online business BS

All the online business BS

Emma and I cover a ton of different pieces of the online business space clearing up plenty of BS along the way. Her experience as an engagement specialist brings a different perspective to social media and online business because she and her team are constantly in other accounts. They see the ins and outs of all the things online.

Emma says: So many people are full of shit. The lack of transparency blows me away. I am grateful that we're starting to see old bro marketing tactics die out, but again and again I have people come to me saying they were brutally burned by some of the most well-known players in the game and felt like they were set up to fail. It's just not that hard to freaking communicate and show receipts. 

At the end of the day, we all started our businesses for some form of freedom. Yet so many people are struggling behind closed doors. We can't keep putting on these shiny happy faces or else we WILL set ourselves up to fail.

Emma Barrera (she/her) is the Founder & CEO of Right Hand Glam, The Engagement Agency, which supports scaling entrepreneurs in increasing brand awareness, organically growing their following, and converting conversations to cash. Over the past three years, Emma has scaled to a multi-six figure agency with a full-time employee and six contractors. She has been a TEDx and HOBY speaker, and has served over 250 clients and 100 students through DFY services, mentorship, and her program, The Engagement Academy, which gives service providers the tools, tech, and tenacity to add engagement to their product suite!

So many people need it, yet most don't understand it. I fully pull back the curtain with this program, absolutely no gatekeeping (another BS issue I see ALL the time).

Katy Calls BS on the coaching industry with Faith

Katy Calls BS on the coaching industry with Faith

Have you been frustrated by the coaching industry? Today we are diving into the difference between a coach, consultant and mentor. We also discuss this largely unregulated industry and how to navigate investing in a coach that works for you. 

My guest, Faith Burtamekh, is  the founder and visionary behind Faith Marie & Co. She has 20+ years of coaching experience and just a few more than that of life experience. Her friends like to refer to her as a former teacher and principal turned serial entrepreneur. 

Faith’s clients are creative entrepreneurs who are overwhelmed by their own great ideas, struggle to execute their plans and want a simple system for scaling their business more sustainably. So they stop feeling bogged down and scattered, and finally feel confident and achieve their goals. 

She lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her  husband and daughter, and their dog, Moonee. Faith is obsessed with all things buffalo plaid, personal development, and office supplies. I love a good fine point gel pen and a fancy notebook.

What you should know about her: She loves simple systems and routines because they’re one of the fastest ways to get yourself out of a rut and into a new habit. Faith has spent years honing her coaching skills and developing her active listening. So, you know you’re in good hands! But more than that, she has a huge heart for her clients. 

Faith loves nothing more than helping a stressed out, overworked, yet ambitious woman to redefine success and their belief in themselves, so that they disrupt and dominate their industry,make a bigger impact with using the skills they’ve mastered, and get paid top dollar for the value they deliver.
