Running a business is unlike any challenge you’ve faced before

It takes quiet courage; endless determination and creativity; and a true, undeniable love for your work. And you? You’ve got all of that in spades.

But, reaching success doesn’t happen over night.

When you’re up in the middle of the night, searching Google and Facebook Groups for answers (surviving on the coffee you made hours ago), it’s easy to feel like you’re utterly alone in this crazy world of entrepreneurship. There’s something missing, and it’s not another free worksheet download.

Here’s the thing: being a business owner does not have to mean doing it alone. In fact, here at Tradeshow Bootcamp, we believe community is the shiny, golden key to unlocking success.

Like anything worthwhile, it’s not easy. Building a support system on your own can feel just like running a business at times…overwhelming and intimidating.

It’s time for you to get the support, answers and mentoring that you need.

Introducing a Group Coaching + Mastermind Program from Tradeshow Bootcamp

The people you’re looking for are out there: fellow entrepreneurs that are facing the same struggles, celebrating the same successes and looking to build authentic industry relationships. Imagine finding not one, but several of them to cheer you on and brainstorm with as you grow your businesses!

The warm and fuzzy excitement you’re feeling after reading those words? That is why we created the TSBC Group Coaching & Mastermind program.

Carefully-curated small groups, intimate sessions, personalized attention, and the tried-and-tested solutions you can’t find anywhere else.

“Katie has such a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for this industry. She is incredibly insightful and encouraging. I loved working with her! – Cara Underwood, Underwood Letterpress

My Goal For You

By the end of this program, I want you to have completed one to two specific projects. These may be things you’ve been day dreaming about but haven’t put into motion.  Or, maybe it is something you started earlier this year and never completed because you lost steam.

We’ll take action, together.

I’ll hold you you accountable, provide solutions and give you the push you need to finish 2018 strong.

“After spending an hour with Katie I am confident and excited to tackle whatever comes my way. I have a plan of action, I know what to expect, and I know that I will be 100% more successful than I would have been, had I not worked with Katie.

Katie is warm and friendly, and extremely easy to talk to. It was so nice to be able to talk to an expert and I learned so much from her. I highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to up their game, and really take their trade show performance, and company to the next level.” – Lyndsey Gaskins, Latchy Catchy

I’m Ready to Apply

Applications are currently being accepted through August 27th and we’ll get back to everyone by September 1st, whether you’re accepted to the program or not.

Our team will carefully curate the right group for you based on each applicant’s experience level, needs and business goals.

Only 12 people will be accepted into the program this Fall. 

We want to keep the group small so we can dive deep into everyone’s businesses and ensure that everyone’s questions are being answered.

Take Me to the Application

“I worked with Katie at a critical point in my business. Katie was fun and positive and her advice helpful and timely. Often times you hear about all the things you are not doing in seminars or consulting and your tasks seem impossible. It wasn’t that way with Katie.  I felt fully supported and appreciated the added action item assignment and follow-up email. I would highly recommend working with Katie to anyone wanting to invest in growing and starting up their business.” – Julia Heatherwick, Kooky Uke



I am an educator, paper goods lover, mother of four, and firm believer in pressing go before you think you’re ready.

With help from a dual MBA in marketing and finance, plus over 17 of experience in corporate business development, I brought Tradeshow Bootcamp to life in 2011. It is a place where I can share my hard-learned business expertise and knowledge with an industry that I care so deeply for. I’m beyond proud to say that in the last 6 years we’ve worked with more than 700 independent stationery and gift companies, helping them build profitable, sustainable businesses.

Our why is simple. The TSBC community believes that together we lift each other up and thrive. By sharing our stories and knowledge, we can all build better businesses.

I’m thrilled to welcome you into this new chapter for TSBC. Investing in your business – and yourself – is a big step, and I can’t wait to help you reach for even bigger success.

“Katie, I can’t thank you enough for building this network of all these brilliant creative wonderful women, and giving me a place to go when I need support, answers, or just understanding. It has been priceless!”  – Kat Parrella, Merrily Paper Boutique
