Katie Blair’s Entrepreneurship Style: Focus on Your Purpose

The road to success is never easy and almost everyone has a different story to tell about how they got their break. Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Katie Blair, an emerging business coach, and yoga master. Interestingly, she’s also a lightworker, an individual who dedicates her life to her purpose. Originally from Seattle, her success story started thousands of miles away from home, in Thailand.

When she stepped on that airplane five years ago, Blair started a journey to find her purpose. Little did she know that what she would discover was so much more.

At the age of 23, six months after her birthday, Blair left her home in Seattle, Washington with nothing but a bag of clothes and a one-way ticket to the other side of the world. She had but one single goal—to find herself and learn about her life purpose. 

She spent the next year in Thailand, helping kids become proficient in the English language. This is where she got her first lightbulb moment. She enjoyed teaching so much and saw how genuinely helping others learn and grow can help succeed.

After some time, she decided to move to India to master yoga and learn more about spirituality, culture, and purpose. Having “cracked open” her innate potential and getting a glimpse of her mission, she decided to move to Peru and work with shamans of the country’s Amazon villages to uncover purpose on deeper layers. Along the way, she also spent time trying to understand the way of life and perspective of people from various walks of life.

 

In all of your journeys, what was your biggest learning?

The craziest realization is that we are the ones who take our power away. We put ourselves in boxes and settle for things that don’t light us up. We make peace because being small is uncomfortable and deems our deepest desires as silly fantasies. Traveling the world for three years on my own, I found this power in myself that I could have, be, do & see absolutely anything I wanted. All I had to do was give myself permission to be that girl, and not starve her of the life she came here to live. Each of us has that within us, and too many don’t trust themselves to let it lead their lives.”

Blair adds that it was then she decided to use the knowledge and experience that she gained from traveling across the globe to help women claim their space and become successful individuals.

What was your biggest challenge getting into starting your own business?

Once you stand in your power and start to embody who you really are – it will naturally set you up on a life and career path that is completely aligned with your purpose. We think that building a business is this incredibly overwhelming, tech-savvy, impossible feat. The reality is that deciding to build a career based on your own unique medicine and spread your ripples into the world is one of the greatest acts of self-realization one can go through. It is where the magic and secret to deep fulfillment lies.

I started my virtual career by building a four-week virtual yoga program to make it easier for others to discover awareness and mindful living without going to India. This course was the seed that paved the way for much bigger things for me.

You have a summer retreat that is very unique and gets attention from a lot of young girls. Can you share how you came up with that?

Inspired by my love for my four younger sisters, the Sowing Sadhana Summer Retreat is a way for me to help teenage girls understand themselves and the world around them in a profound way. The goal is to help them answer the biggest whys in their life; to imbue them with mindfulness, to help them find their power and importance, and uncover the things that make them unique and to celebrate that. This is a spiritual journey that I wish I had access to when I was younger. It just gives a young woman so much strength that no one will be able to take away from them, ever.

 

You started by offering yoga programs then went on to become a business coach. What triggered that transition?

A year after I developed all these means to help people, I decided to just go for it and become a business coach. The yoga program I created helped me understand virtual business more, and as a lightworker, I knew I needed to share this with people. I’ve been doing business coaching for the past two years and the results have been astonishing. It’s still a young business, but it’s one that I am very proud of because it does what it’s supposed to, and that is to help people—especially women and lightworkers—build something profitable and amazing out of their passion. 

If you are to advise our readers to help them find success, what would it be?

You have the ability to be extraordinary. You have to believe that the only way to do it is to start with your mind and hold your vision of being the change you wish to see in the world at the forefront of your actions. I am so grateful that I am making a living while helping people become who they are supposed to be.
