Kate Guest: Wellbeing Practitioner – Coach | Motivational Speaker | Hypnotherapist
Most profound, life-changing, business moment?
Leaving behind my self limiting belief that nursing was all I knew, so how could I possibly do anything else? I felt stuck but at the grand old age of 50, after 35 years as a registered nurse, 28 of those years in the same role of Practice Nurse, I made the break. I have done numerous courses since then, turning all my limiting beliefs on their head and now I help other people to do the same.
Best life advice ever received?
To trust your gut. When I go with my gut, that’s when I’m at my best; when I’m in flow.
Advice for a young woman stepping into the world from school, college or uni?
Listen to everyone’s advice, mull it over, dissect it, research and at the end of all that, do what feels right for you.
Which book has had the greatest influence on your life?
The ‘Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne. It’s not a long or deep book, but the one that began my journey.
If you could make one change to the world?
For people to believe in themselves and to push away the negative words. What we focus on becomes real. Focus on the positive, learn from the negative, always be moving forward.
“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got”

100 Most Influential Women 2018
Grow Exeter Magazine launched the ‘100 Most Influential Women 2018’ in Exeter and the region in December 2017 and we received around 500 nominations for influential women from all walks of life; our panel was spoilt for choice and hard-pressed to select only 100 from the talented nominees that they viewed. The Launch of the ‘100 Most Influential Women’ awards in 2018 has perhaps even more value than in any other year as it was just 100 years ago that the first woman was granted the right to vote in the UK.
Women have truly shown that they can shine in any environment, whether that be in the boardroom, teaching our children, climbing mountains, navigating uncharted waters, they can do anything that they set their mind to and we can’t wait to celebrate our own talented 100.
Honouring women in our March edition of Grow Exeter fell in line with International Women’s Day on the 8th March and the 100 finalists have each been featured in this special edition. To see the 100 finalists individually featured, please grab a copy of our March edition by ordering through the link below. We will be publishing each woman online throughout March and April so keep an eye on our Facebook page or website for their stories.
A huge congratulations to everyone nominated and to the #100WomenExeter, you are all amazing!
