With over two decades of work in leadership, sales, lead generation, and marketing, Kathleen Celmins (SELL-mens) has worked with Fortune 500 companies to build profitable product offers, built and sold two businesses, and now works to help entrepreneurs find their ripe idea ready to be picked and put to work as a passive product offer- leveraging their expertise they already have.

Long Bio

Kathleen spends most of her time helping time-strapped digital entrepreneurs, speakers, coaches, and freelancers increase their income by increasing the number of quality sales conversations through outreach on LinkedIn and through a strategic approach to productizing their services.


Everyone in business wants to be profitable. But experts are often too close to mastery to maximize their margins. Kathleen helps experts realize there are two paths toward higher profit margins:

  • Charging more—typically a lot more, and
  • Creating a productized service.


Both are lucrative. Both work. Both are hard to wrangle on your own.


That's where working with Kathleen comes in. She provides the brainstorming, the framework, and the tactical steps to accomplish both. Charging more money means finding a new way to meet prospects, and the best place to find well-heeled clients is through strategic outreach using LinkedIn.


Productizing services means thinking about bespoke services in a new way. It requires brainstorming, repackaging, market research, and a paid ad strategy that can turn into a lucrative revenue stream.


Kathleen has learned most of her lessons the hard way, but has found wild success both in her business and the businesses she’s consulted with.


When she’s not at her desk, you can find her on her yoga mat, in the swimming pool, and seeking out the best tacos in Phoenix with her husband and two daughters.
