We had the good fortune of connecting with Kathryn Alice and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kathryn, how does your business help the community?
I’m fortunate enough to run a business with a very positive message. We get wedding photos sent to us all of the time of the people I’ve helped to find love. And so many heartwarming letters from people I’ve helped let go of a toxic relationship or impossible attachment. So we’ve helped peoples’ love lives. In 2018 when the Woolsey Fire burnt down our home and 400 others in Malibu, where we reside, I taught a series of workshops in the community on letting go. I am my family badly needed to let go as did so many around us grieving. So I’m fortunate to know how to help folks in times like this. It helped me, too! Directing a Crisis Support Team for so many years put me in a position to be able to help people at some of their hardest times.

What should our readers know about your business?
My family jokes that I pulled a career out of my bum. I write books on love, release and soulmates and am a love coach. What sets me apart may be the track record I’ve had. My message is one of hope for people regardless of age, weight, physical situation or any other limit they’ve feared would keep love from them. A healing message. Over the years, I received thousands of wedding photos, love stories, and thanks for those who’ve benefited from my work. I’m very proud of this and can die happy knowing I’ve positively affected so many peoples’ lives. I think it has been my purpose, and so this career really flowed for me. The challenge was in scaling as I became popular. I had to learn to delegate, replicate myself with books and audio and get some good boundaries. Particularly because when my success began to mushroom, I was having more babies. Work-life balance has been my biggest challenge. I’ve overcome it by creating do-at-home products and courses so I don’t have to physically be there. I scaled way back on my personal coaching and hiked my rates up. Lessons learned: • You’ll never get it all done so stop & smell the roses • Find a good assistant & learn to delegate • When you are in demand, raise your rates • Do something you can be proud of • Go virtual as much as you can On this last point, we went virtual in 2007. It seems prescient in light of the pandemic and distancing. In 2002, I was extremely pregnant and took my sessions to the phone instead of meeting in person. It worked out so well, I never went back. I also began teaching teleseminars when they were not common — in 2008. It let me reach a greater audience and freed me from having to be anywhere at any time. I love the freedom, and we were well-prepared for quarantining.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I live in Malibu, which I know well and love, so here’s what we would do. First, we’d start out a Little Beach House/Soho House in Malibu of which I’m a member for ocean-side lunch, watching the surfers at the Malibu Pier and if we’re lucky, see some dolphins jump by. If you can’t snag an invite to Soho, then next door at Nobu is equally magical. Then, we’d drive up the coast to explore the Point Dume Preserve and walk off lunch. This is a micro climate where it’s dry, deserty with majestic cliffs and an abundance of sea lions barking.. We even might see a film shoot — the cliffs of Point Dume are constantly being used on commercial and film shoots. After that, we’ll drop by The Sunset Restaurant on Westward Beach for a glass of wine and appetizers. My good friends own it, and it’s enchanting — like eating right on the beach. You might even see a wedding there, too. After that, we continue our drive up the coast toward Point Mugu. On the right side are some fun sand cliffs kids love to tumble down and there are a series of rock formations made famous by car commercials. It’s fun to encounter the Harley-Davidson set at Neptune’s Nest right on Ventura County Line. This popular biker seafood restaurant affords an occasional spotting of avid motorcycle enthusiast Keanu Reeves, too. Not a bad bonus to see John Wick! Sitting on the beach at County Line for the sunset is a perfect end to the day.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
The Agape International Spiritual Center and Michael Beckwith. This is where I trained to be able to do what I do now — the beginning of my work. I directed Crisis Support there for many years. Dr. Beckwith was an important mentor, who went on to be in the movie and book The Secret and has been a great example of grace as your work expands.
