In this episode of the Find Calm Here Podcast, I speak with Kelly Pratt. She’s the founder of Athena Village, an online community bringing together heart and soul-centered women through authentic stories, thoughtful questions, and soulful conversations. Kelly mentors and coaches creative entrepreneurs to find their best flow – their “creative rhythm.”
She works with them as they turn their ideas and passions into products, artistic creations, books, or fabulous new business ventures. Her mission is to amplify women’s voices for impact in the world. Kelly dives deep with her clients & members as they turn their passions and ideas into action, tangible products, artistic creations, books, or fabulous new business ventures.

5:40: Kelly’s online community started in 2016 when she had an idea for group coaching but didn’t want the distractions of social media. She explains finding Mighty Networks and building the first iteration of her community.
18:21: Kelly talks about being a visionary with big ideas when it comes to starting projects, and how powerful that can be when paired with a person that is good at the execution aspect. She also discusses how valuable early adopters and beta testers are during a launch to jump in and give feedback.
28:50: Mentioning that she finds personal twists appealing, Kelly mentions how powerful it is telling stories and having authentic conversations in your community. She wants to make sure to create safe and private spaces where honest conversations can happen.
33:42: Deb and Kelly discuss the value of community, especially in her salon and village shop offerings, where members can help each other through their various zones of genius. Asking for help and feedback is noted as especially valuable in running a community.
