About Me

Nice to meet you!

I'm Kathy Keats—author of fiction and non-fiction, online entrepreneur, coach, dog lover,  musician, artist, and sport enthusiast. Whew!

Do you have goals you'd love to achieve almost so bad you can taste it? But you aren't sure how to go about it? Or you're afraid to try?

I completely understand. 

I've been involved with elite athletics for most of my life as a competitor and coach, and have represented Canada in three completely different disciplines—basketball, dog agility and sheepdog trialing—winning world, national and regional championships along the way. 

When I was a kid, I was a promising basketball player with dreams of winning a national basketball championship.

But during my high school years, I lost my father to cancer and a couple short years later lost my mother to a heart condition. Basketball was the only thing keeping me from going off the rails completely. Then I blew my knee out during a recreational basketball game. 

My dream seemed over.

But I didn't give up. I soaked up everything I could about peak performance, mental game, overcoming obstacles, and peak performance.

After months of rehab and years of an up and down career, my team had an undefeated season and won the national championship, and I was named Player of the Game in the final.

During that time, I learned a lot about the pursuit of a dream and the failures and disappointments that come with it.

But I pressed on and figured out how to develop the skills, motivation, focus, and mental toughness to get where I wanted to go. 

Being a curious person, I started to apply those lessons to other pursuits such as dog agility, sheepdog trialing, music, art, writing, entrepreneurship...and realized that success is far less about talent and far more about process.

And you never know where that process will take you if you are open to it.

My life has been full of adventure, and I'd like to help you enjoy the same feeling.

So I'll be giving you lots of free information about the process and path of success, as well as detailing my own lessons and experiences in whatever my current passions and pursuits are.

I look forward to taking this journey with you!
