Hi, I’m Kathrin

I’m an author, speaker, master mindset coach, & manifestation expert on a mission to change the world, one mindset at a time!

From humble beginnings as a Russian immigrant, bullied, shy girl, my journey with manifestation began all the WAY back in 2009, when I was introduced to the wildly popular self-help book- The Secret.  Little did I know, the information I absorbed from this book marked the start of my life’s work and obsession with understanding our mindsets and how to manipulate reality to work FOR us, not against us. Over the next 10 years, I took my unwavering passion for Manifestation and set out on a mission to create an inspiring empire supporting hundreds of thousands of women across the globe– better known today as Manifestation Babe.

Since starting my journey, I’ve manifested EVERYTHING I have in my life today. From the multi-7 figure business, to my dream car, to dream relationships, and my favorite manifestation ever, my soulmate and husband, Brennan, I’ve used this powerful tool to create the reality of my wildest dreams. And the number one question I get is, “Kathrin, how did you do it?! How did you get started in all of this?”

Let me take you back to where this all started!

“I believe I was put here on this planet to make a massive difference and remind others of their infinite potential.”

Growing Up

Shortly after I was born, the Ukranian mafia chased my family out of our home in Ukraine. A couple of my family members had already immigrated to the United States years before, and with their help, we embarked on a challenging journey.

My family fled the country, under the cover of night, vanishing across the border to safety. Tantalized by the prospect of opportunity, we left our Russian home — for Los Angeles, California. In 1993, my family of 5 started a brand new life in a brand new country with less than $900 USD. We were in survival mode.

Growing up, I spent most of my childhood living in my own imagination. Teachers would constantly mark me down on my report card for staring out the window and daydreaming. This was the only way I could cope with all of the bullying, name calling, and alienation that I went through from elementary school to high school. For most of my childhood, I always thought that I was a victim of circumstances and that life was happening to me.

My family had no money, my parents fought all the time, and eventually divorced when I was eight (when my mom had enough of my abusive father). I had no friends at school, and I was more than 30 lbs overweight due to the suffocating stress I could not find shelter from. I often dreamt of my family winning the lottery, the popular boy at school finally liking me and making me popular too, and for a magic fairy to *poof* my overweight body back into shape so kids could stop spreading rumors that I was pregnant. My life became a game of brainstorming all the ways that I could please others kids so that they would like me. Although this mentality carried me through middle school, when I discovered the book, “The Secret,” many things quickly changed.

Creating My Own Reality

“The Secret” was my first introduction to manifestation, and the very first time in my life I realized I was in control of my reality. I could be myself and change my reality just by changing my thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.

For the first time in my life, I stopped allowing my past to determine my future. With these new insights, I began making improvements in my life. As a result, I started to attract more positive experiences, which grew as I kept reading, learning, studying, applying and practicing.

Things were pretty dandy in life until one day, at the age of 22, I had an awakening at a Tony Robbins personal growth seminar. In the midst of applying to medical school, I decided to finally break free from my box. As I sat in the seminar, I heard a voice ask me, “Who are you living for, Kathrin?” It started as a whisper until it became a deafening roar. I couldn’t shake this voice, until finally the answer came to me– “everyone but myself.”

For so many years, my family dreamt of me becoming a doctor. It was a path that represented the American dream to my family. A path of certainty, success, and most importantly–job security. 

But it wasn’t MY dream, and it took me finally listening to this voice to  put my foot down, and tell my family I WASN’T going to medical school. I decided I was no longer going to do what others wanted for me and I wasn’t going to settle for life that looked good in the eyes of society.

That weekend after the seminar, I broke up with my boyfriend of 6 years, swiped my credit card for $15,000 to attend another personal growth seminar, and decided to move back to Los Angeles after graduating from the University of Washington.

Realizing I had no money, no job, a failing online business I had started my junior year of college, and no way of affording LA rent, I ended up living on my grandma’s couch. This was the beginning of my bold attempt to chase my out-of-the-box dreams.

Creating Manifestation Babe

One night, while laying on my grandmother’s couch, I had a conversation with myself where I realized the Universe gave me the best opportunity to test all that I knew. If I could manifest my way off this couch–then I can help others accomplish ANYTHING. I decided that I would have the BEST comeback and success story of anyone else that I knew. It was the ultimate test I needed to prove to myself once and for all, that manifestation was absolutely real.

That night I decided to play a game for the next 12 months. The game worked like this: I would live every single day as if my success was inevitable. I would go for my biggest goals and dreams as if I absolutely could not fail. I would develop the ultimate success mindset and ignore all beliefs & opinions that didn’t serve me. If by the end of the year I succeeded, then I would continue the game for the rest of my life. If I had failed, well, I was already at my lowest point. I would stop playing the game and stay on this couch forever. 

That week, I started an Instagram account – @manifestationbabe. It was a place for me to hold myself accountable to this new game.

As I started to re-learn what I learned at the age of 16, I needed a place to capture my thoughts, my insights, my breakthroughs and my “aha” moments. As I started to manifest more of the things that I desired into my life, people started asking me how I was doing it so that they could learn too.

So, I began to teach them my most powerful mindset and manifestation tricks. I shared with them everything that I was learning and watched their lives transform as well. Within 2 years, I built Manifestation Babe to a multi-million dollar personal development company. I got off the couch, moved into my own apartment, fell in love, traveled the world with my now husband, Brennan, and manifested every single thing that I have ever wanted in my life. Now I get to wake up every morning and ask myself the question, “What else is out there for me?” Even with all of my successes, I know just how truly limitless our lives are. The answer is “so much more.

My Purpose

Now my purpose has grown WAY beyond just changing my life. I believe I was put here on this planet to make a massive difference and remind others of their infinite potential.

Today, Manifestation Babe has helped over 200,000+ women across the globe see massive success in their lives too. It’s a blessing to wake up each day and witness the lives of others radically transform just by applying the spiritual principles that I teach in my courses, masterclasses, and books.

Now that you’re here and you’ve gotten to know a bit more about me, I’m so excited to hear more about you. Whether you start with my podcast or jump right into one of my academies, I can’t wait to witness your incredible success story too. If there’s one thing I can leave you with before we get started, it’s this: Your success is inevitable and you are always on the right path. There is more out there for you and you’ve just barely scratched the surface.

To Your Massive Success,
