Show me KatyCan's LinkedIn


When a self-described ‘Silver Tongued Freelancer’ contacted me out of the blue I was intrigued. Kathryn, who owns KatyCan, is a gem, and I’m delighted we connected. She started on a small, fun project for me and is now busy redesigning my entire internet life. I’m thrilled with the work she’s done and is continuing to do – she’s a solid GenZ; topical, edgy and very on-point with a whip-smart brain that is one step ahead. I’m a completely satisfied client. Use her, and you will be too.
KatyCan has an expert knowledge of professional CV requirements. Katy is approachable, friendly and hard-working. She transformed my profile into something I am proud of: I am now confident in my online image and recommend her to all my clients.

The stories of a start-up

I have put together a short list of some common misconceptions of the CV to help make the topic a little less daunting for those attempting to nail it by themselves.
This post is about how I used the business networking platform with over 810 million members to convince people to pay attention to me- to my business KatyCan– to a Small Business Owner making her mark on LinkedIn by having a profile that works.
I was stumped by this term for a while, and it wasn’t until I had my own business that I learned how relevant this acronym is.
Usually, I spend a week maximum on order, which most clients prefer, because the less time spent on updating the profile means the quicker the client can get started on the job-hunting process. Ben, however, had me in his clutches for over 7 months.
No one likes a success story more than a start-up, and no one likes writing about a success story more than the entrepreneur.
No one likes a success story more than a start-up, and no one likes writing about a success story more than the entrepreneur.
I haven't met a client in 3 years but I have been growing my business in the way I interact with them.
