Kat Sturtz profileI’m Kat Sturtz.

As a business life mentor and The Purgatory Relief Coach for People Who Think Marketing Is Hell, I work with struggling solopreneurs and small business owners to figure out what really has them stuck or stalled so they can implement solutions that help them rock their unique path and prosper with passion and purpose

I’m a habitually curious, bit quirky, intuitive, and creatively organized business life mentor, small business and writing/publishing consultant.

Since 2007, my primary focus has been helping writers and artists, coaches, and consultants, and other service-based professionals, who are eager to start and grow a profitable home-based business how to find more time, more money and affordable resources to rock their unique path, how to overcome obstacles and hidden barriers, and how to prosper with passion and purpose.

My business background is an eclectic mix of writing, editing and publishing, spokesperson training, farming, hospitality management, advertising sales, and business consulting and marketing services for a wide variety of non-profit organizations, as well as mainstream and small businesses, going back to 1971. In addition to being an award-winning author (aka Kathy Henderson), a featured speaker and workshop presenter, I have live radio and television experience. I’m also the founder of RockingYourPath.com, Fast Action Fridays, and the Bridges to Success programs, including Jumpstart Your Success: Home-based Business Boot Camp. Plus, I help manage my retired chef husband’s site, YouCan Cuisine.com

In addition to being a Certified Guerrilla Marketing Coach, I earned a BBA in Business Management from Northwood University (Midland, Michigan) in 2010 … at the age of 56.

On the life skills side, I’ve personally overcome many obstacles, bumps and ruts in my own path, including being medically revived three times following the birth of first child, coming out of a coma on my 19th birthday, and leaving an increasingly abusive 25 year marriage in the dead of night in 1995. Highly intuitive my entire life, I am also a Reiki Master and EFT/tapping practitioner, plus licensed minister in Michigan.

These all function under the umbrella of my business, 56 Vibes Services.

• FYI, my full last name is Henderson-Sturtz. Books and other work published prior to 2005 carry the byline: Kathy Henderson.

By way of further example:

We request information from consumers making purchases from our registered merchants within our shopping cart and order-processing interfaces. Here a user must provide contact information, financial information, and identity information. This information is used to fill customer’s orders, for billing purposes, and to verify the identity of the consumer to protect against fraud. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates

Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We may partner with other parties to provide specific services. If we do acquire such partners, when the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use nonpublic personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. We do not otherwise disclose nonpublic information to anyone, except as permitted by law.

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, 56 Vibes Services, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site. Operators may be subject to the FTC’s privacy regulations and if so, (i) the FTC’s regulations contain sample disclosures that operators may consider; and (ii) operators may be required to send annual notices in addition to initial disclosures to their customers.

This website takes precautions to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer-service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

Site and Service Updates

We also send the user site and service announcement updates. We may close your account and/or refuse additional services if Members un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email, fax, or phone.

Opt-out requirements:
As provided in this policy, we only provide your nonpublic personal information to a non-affiliated third party in conjunction with the services that you have requested that we provide to you. All non-affiliated third parties to whom we disclose your nonpublic personal information are contractually prohibited by us to disclose or use the information other than to carry out the transactions that you have requested. Accordingly, there is nothing for a user to opt out of with respect to how we currently use their non-public personal information.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email or US mailing so as to enable users to “opt-out” if we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
