Be a Boss & Launch Online
You’ve Been Working for the “Man/Woman” Way Too Long and You Are Finally Sick and Tired Of…
Answering to someone other than yourself.
Living up to and working towards someone else’s dreams & goals.
Busting your bootie off for no extra pay!
You find yourself…
≈ Wishing for weekends that never ended, dreading the early morning alarm clock on Monday morning, not because you can’t get up that early, but the thought of walking into work at “that place” is less than appetizing.
≈ Cringing at the thought that you have to let your boss know way ahead of time when you will take vacation! What if it rains the whole darn time? What if a great deal comes up last minute? What if the forecast for the next 4 days is super hot and sunny, and you just want to take time off NOW?
≈ Spending a good deal of your workday fantasizing about being a #BOSS in your work and life.
≈ Bitter at the fact that you can’t come and go as you please. You don’t have enough time for your friends, family, and all the other awesome stuff you wish you had time to commit to.
You know that you can choose to live with it the way it is or finally get up the courage to make it happen. I’ve been in this place personally, and know the living hell it can be. It reminds me of the the song “Should I Stay or Should I Go Now” by The Clash.
Believe me, “going”, taking that leap of faith, is the best decision I’ve ever made in my life.
Are You Always Asking Yourself These Questions
About Your Life and Work?
► What would happen if I just didn’t show up for work anymore?
► What example am I setting for my kids, settling for something that I am not happy with?
► I wonder how many “sick” days I can take before I get written up or even fired?
► How can I ever have happy relationships in my life when I’m miserable with my work? After all, my work makes up 40+ hours of my week. Unhappy at work = unhappy in life!
► How can I ever get ahead in life when I’m stuck in this dead end job with a salary cap?
► When’s the last time I actually took time out for my friends or some of my favorite hobbies?
You’re smart! Actually… you’re BRILLIANT! You’re passionate, dedicated, a hard-worker, and have incredible values!
You’re SICK & TIRED of giving all of that awesomeness to someone else on their time and for their pocketbook.
You know that the only way to
get out of this crazy rat-race is to…
Finally become the #BOSS that you are!
You know it! You finally want to be able to…
♥ Take time off when you want
♥ Work on things that matter to you
♥ Make a difference in your life and in the life of others
♥ Have unlimited earning potential! No more asking for a raise.
♥ Work when you want, where you want, and how often you want!
♥ Call the shots! This is your life and no one else should be telling you what to do and when to do it!
Joys In My Life Since Being My Own #BOSS
What will your #bosslife look like?
I know you can’t wait to have all that and even more! This is no laughing matter!
I also know that you’re willing to put in the work to make it happen. After all… you are AMAZING!
There’s obstacles standing in your way!
I know this because I’ve been there, done that, and wore the t-shirt a few times!
I’ve been running my own online businesses for several years now and have done EVERYTHING myself. Yes… everything! Because of this, I’ve encountered all the hiccups a girl could encounter along the way. I’ve also learned to master the online business world and now navigate it with ease.
I’m a down to earth, tell-it-like-it-is girl, so I don’t want to sugarcoat this for you. There’s a lot to learn, BUT… if you are willing to do the work (I know you are), and able to follow easy hands-on and practical teachings, then you will succeed!
It’s soooo worth it and I can teach you how to do it all and best of all, on a solo entrepreneur’s budget! (ie. cheap!)
Reasons You Need Help Along The Way:
There are so many moving parts to creating a successful online business. Web design, advertising, copywriting, video, and so much more. There are courses for everything, but it’s a jungle out there and not easy to find a teacher you love that will give you everything you need. Not to mention the ridiculous amount of money you’ll spend if you take 20+ different courses. Believe me, it adds up fast. (been there, done that)
How do you know what order to do everything in? If you have no clue and you’re looking at all the many moving parts, you’ll totally get overwhelmed and consider throwing in the towel.
Being a solo entrepreneur is amazing for sure (I wouldn’t trade it for the world), but you’ll often find yourself alone and wonder if you’re doing the right thing. Believe me, it’s tough when you don’t have anyone around you that “gets” what you’re trying to do. It’s downright unnerving! My friends were constantly trying to find me a “real job” when I first left my day job. Sheesh!
So you want it more than life itself, but you don’t know exactly what you need, where to get it, how to do it without burning yourself out, and where in the heck you’re gonna find like-minded peeps that share your vision.
I’ve been there and wore out the t-shirt.
This is the exact reason why I’ve created the Launch Academy! An online business community offering you all the online training courses you need to launch yourself online, plus an interactive community that provides you peer and coach (that’s me) support along the way.
Here’s what you get when you join the Launch Academy
Monthly Q & A
Monthly challenges to keep you on your toes. Every month I’ll pick a theme or area that people are struggling with to move ahead on and create a challenge to incite action and productivity.
So Much More...
SO… What’s the Launch Academy
and who am I to teach you?
When the student is ready, the teacher appears!
That’s me! I’m a down to earth, tell-it-like-it-is business woman. I have tons of education and real-life experience in the techie, teaching, and coaching world.
I currently run a coaching business (this one), and an online yoga, fitness, and wellness membership site. I host workshops, speak professionally, and podcast. Best yet… I keep it all under control and do-able!
What makes me unique is that I’m also a holistic health coach. I’m trained to and practice living my best life yet in all aspects of my life.
My goal is to teach you to run a kickass online business while at the same time flourish and grow in other areas of your life. After all, life is about more than just work and money!
That’s On Point
As you grow in business and in life!
In addition to all the trainings, you get access to my personal coaching advice. I’ll be active daily in our private group and member-only forums, answering questions along the way.
I’ll also be hosting a monthly live mastermind call that will cover key points or even mini-trainings for things people are struggling with.
In addition, a monthly live question period will be hosted to answer the most pressing questions of the month.
You also get access to all of your peers. As the group grows, so will the knowledge base that you can take away from.
My goal is to see you achieve yours! To see you succeed in the online business world and in your life.
I can’t wait to hear about what your business is and how I can help!

In this program you’ll get access to everything you need to launch your online business. Not only that, but I’ll give it to you in a sequence that makes logical sense!

Kay has been there for me every step of the way.
From email marketing, blogs, setting up my website, the list goes on and on.
Building an online business can be a overwhelming at times, but Kay knows what she’s talking about and puts it all into perspective for me.
She has an abundance of patience with me and I plan to apply these teaching skills to my online training.
Kay, “YOU ROCK”! I’m lucky to have you as a coach and teacher!
Roger Leblanc, NCSF Personal Trainer
I’ve worked with Kay as a mentor for almost a year now.
I struggle with following through and organizing my business.
I needed accountability and someone to help me with structure.
Kay helped me set goals and knowing that she would follow up with me enabled me to complete things I never would have before.
Her plug and play system worked wonders for me!
I’m Kay Pitre, your coach…
I’m the main gal here at the Launch Academy!
I’m a success coach for online entrepreneurs (and a few other things too), and my mission is to help people just like you, launch their businesses online from scratch. If you’re a beginner at all this stuff, then I’m your girl!
I run a few successful online businesses and am finally living the life of my dreams! But… believe me, it wasn’t always this way. For years, actually, most of my working career, I was never satisfied with my work (and at times, my life).
5 years ago, I finally turned my life around and started living it for me and no one else! I’ve never looked back. I re-invented myself, built on existing skills, added new ones, left my 10+ year job with the federal government, and launched online!
Not one day goes by that I regret the changes I’ve made. Not one! I do what I want, when I want. I’m in control of my income (limitless possibilities), my time with family, when and where I want to work, and the list goes on!
The best part is that I LOVE getting up in the mornings. I am so pumped at the thought of getting up, running my business and helping others live their best lives yet in business and in other parts of their lives! IT ROCKS!
I have over 15 years of business experience, have tons of techie education and experience, and I’m a coach, speaker, and teacher in my current work.
Not only that… I’m also a certified holistic wellness expert. What does that mean for you?
It means that I know how to have a successful business AND live well in all other areas of my life. It means that I can teach you to have that same balance in your life. That’s something that you won’t find anywhere else!
Did I mention that all the work, from start to finish, has been done 100% by me? No web developers, no copywriters, no ads experts, no one. I know how to do it all, which is why I’m the girl to show you how to do it and do it on a budget!
The Launch Academy is the BEST DEAL going!
– All of the hands-on trainings in the Launch Academy and any new ones I add in the future ($2000+ value)
– 2 Live calls a month with me (don’t worry, they get recorded). (This alone is a $500+ value)
– An amazing and constantly growing community of like-minded peers that all bring something different to the table. This community is like a family. Grow and learn with it.
– A step-by-step program to start from scratch and start earning an income worth having and living the life of your dreams. (Priceless, in my opinion!!!)
All this for only $39 a month.
The Launch Academy was created
with You in Mind
You’re busy… I totally get it! Honestly!
When I first started out, I was working a full-time day job, studying to be a certified yoga teacher, studying to be holistic health coach, building my business on the side, and running a household as a single mom with a super busy and active teenager that plays competitive sports!
But I did it and you can too!!!
The key was finding programs that allowed me to work around my schedule, at my own pace, and carried my values and goals in mind. To top it all off, they had to be budget friendly!
That’s why the Launch Academy is for you! I’ve designed it the way I needed it to be when I was just starting out!
→ Work at your own pace! There are no deadlines! The material is there for you to use anytime.
→ Follow the modules in logical order and make sure you’re not putting the cart before the horse. Everything is provided to you in the order it should be in.
→ Want to keep extra motivated? I’ll provide monthly challenges to keep you on track.
→ I’ll show you what to do, how to do it, and exactly what tools you should use along the way. No more trying to sift through hundreds of different tools wondering which ones are the best bang for your buck.
→ In all the courses I’ve taken to turn my life and biz around, the best ones all had a community I could take part in. At times, it was the only thing that kept me going! That’s the exact reason I’m including a VIP community in the Launch Academy just for you!
There are No Shortcuts
when it come to SUCCESS, but…
There are better roads to take to get to your final destination and that’s where I come in to help!
Running a business is hard work. Work that only YOU can put in (and I know you will).
The best part about it all is that it’s totally worth it!
I can’t wait to help you on your journey to success!
What are you waiting for?
