What do you do when it’s 18 degrees and you are trudging through Manhattan with 30 lbs of cargo on your back, en route to one of your major distributors? When you’re fingers are so frozen you can’t operate your cell phone? When you’re sick and tired of taking multiple modes of transportation to get to work? You go home and write your letter of resignation! Several years ago, Rutherford native Katie Roberts made the brave move to resign from her corporate job and become a momtrepeneur.

Katie left the corporate world behind and decided to follow her passion. What is her passion? Her desire is to “supply women with the tools and support they need to feel like the virtuous women they are intended to be, exposing that power to the world and in doing so, becoming a movement that shapes the world.” Such a powerful and moving statement! Her vision, and passion, where the catalyst for her to start World Momination. As a stay at home single mom (to two boys!), Katie tackles the daily challenges that come along with that in order to have a successful business. She makes it look easy, but it requires a lot of discipline and will power. Katie explained to me that she had to be very regimented in her application of time managements skills, and it was the hardest work she’s ever known. She’s reaping the rewards however, with a successful business, and by being an example to her children and other moms.

Katie has helped hundreds of women through her Bikini Model Mom challenge, Fitmergency (including yours truly, who lost 10 lbs in 10 days with this program!) and recently Juicy Bubbles. She’s also a motivational speaker, and you can catch her on her Instagram or Facebook live with her in your face real talk or tips, tricks for weight management. Her trademark “Goooooodddd morning!” and smile will put a pep in your step. Katie has taken it a step further and recently started a dating blog. There’s nothing that Katie won’t tackle, with vigor and spunk, to fulfill her life’s purpose.

Katie is an inspiration to many in that you can take big chances, work hard and make your dreams a reality. You can find out more about Katie here or check her out on her social media in case you need a kick in the pants!
