Hi, I’m Lisa Kate Miller.
I am a business strategist and digital marketer. I help small business owners take strategic action so their work can have a greater impact.
I believe in curiosity, experimentation and sustainability. I take ideas from all areas of life and apply them to business.
I believe in developing businesses that have a positive social impact while fulfilling our needs financially and mentally.
I believe the old models of doing business are breaking down and new methods that don’t rely on scarcity, competition and non-accountability are the way forward.
I thrive on contribution and creating value with others to help progress positive social change and great ideas.
“Ask yourself if what you are doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.”

But getting started was hard. The novelty of coffee dates in the middle of the day soon wore off and I could only adjust my new office setup so many times before it officially became procrastination. I discovered I was stuck. Stuck from overwhelming ideas, self-doubt, lack of focus and comparisionitis. And it only got worse as I tried to live up to the ideal of the business I thought I should be running or that I thought other people wanted. So I did what I know best: I stuck at it and learned all I could.
With the growth of Puppy Tales I was glad I had established my business and was making money, but it was now equally important to make a difference by building a business that contributed to society in positive ways. No, I didn’t rush off and create a social entrepreneurship startup, but I became more focused on how my business impacted others, what real change could I make, and that I didn’t have to follow old school business rules and philosophies to make my business work.
I call this type of business Better Business and I think it is something most of us embrace naturally if we hold true to our values.
“You deserve an amazing life and a successful business on your own terms.”
In 2014 I took my skills to a new level and became a certified Beautiful You Coach. It was a big move as I had built Puppy Tales up into a successful business with over 200,000 followers, involvement from major brands and a range of products. But after all that work, I felt a stronger calling to help others fulfil their big ideas and so I started on this rewarding path of helping other businesses work on their strategy and implement actions that give them the results they desire.
In 2016 I taught Digital Marketing at General Assembly and realised just how much knowledge I had gathered via all my previous roles and projects. With this and the experience of working with nearly 100 consulting and coaching clients, I understood where my strengths lay and what people needed. Which was someone that understood business and digital marketing strategy, who could see where they were getting stuck and the next big steps they could take that would move their business from starting out to next level.
