Today's Guest: Kate Hancock

Kate Hancock, known as "The Pivot Queen" by those who know her tireless work ethic, is a serial entrepreneur, international speaker, and a mom of two amazing boys. 

Kate built four highly successful businesses in less than ten years, with revenues that ranged from six to eight figures. She started these businesses from the ground up with no funding in various industries. 

Her first venture was an e-commerce business that started with only $20. Within a year, she grew this business to over a million dollars in revenue and over 15 million in online sales. 

Kate did not limit her success there; instead, she kept going. One of her true passions is to help people have healthier, beautiful skin. This led her to open a spa that served a diverse clientele. From a small room of 100 square feet, OC Facial Center became a premier location for exceptional service. Her beautiful spa went on to receive the recognition of being in Inc 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, not only once but twice. 

Integrating her ability to create exceptionally successful businesses and her desire to help, Kate created a community on Clubhouse from 0 to 100,000 entrepreneurs globally in just ten months. To date, Kate has impacted over 8 million entrepreneurs. She has produced the longest-running virtual summit in the world that ran for 85 days 24/7.
