KEMPS Consulting is now Ladybug Brands LLC!

For over a decade, Kate E. Stephenson has honed her craft, using words and narrative to help clients birth new dreams and open new possibilities. Established in 2006, Kate has grown the business to offer three interconnected branches of service: holistic life coaching, career services, and indie publishing consulting. These services are reflected in the three Ladybug Brands: Pillars of Personhood Coaching, The Caffeinated Career, and The Sharp Pen. At the core of these services is Kate’s belief that you can speak the life you want into existence and you can create the world you want to live in.

How long have your dreams been gestating? Isn’t it time to finally bring them to life?

Are you ready to address the thoughts that keep you up at night or keep you from being the person you want to be? Coaching opens a safe, nonjudgmental space where you can explore your true self, decide what you want, and chart a path to get it.
