Hi! Kathryn Yarborough here.
I’m the creator of the Manifesting Clients Academy, a vibrant speaker coach, manifesting clients mentor, author, speaker, and event facilitator.
My clients are super cool on purpose, heart-based solopreneurs and small business owners who want to use speaking to attract clients, grow the business their heart longs for, and thrive.
I provide training, feedback, and community so that my clients can grow a business they love.

My Past Professional Experience
In the past, I’ve been a psychospiritual facilitator, integrative breathworker, dance/movement therapist, and manifestation coach. I’ve created online courses and programs.
Other history that sort of matters
I grew up in Florida then went to college at Clemson University in South Carolina and got my B.A. with a major in French – and no – I can’t speak French, yet! From there I went to Smith College in Massachusetts and received an M.F.A. (Master of Fine Arts) in dance. While there I had my first spiritual awakening and was divinely inspired to teach people how to integrate body, mind, and emotions. I didn’t know how to do that, but it felt super important. So, in my thirties, I went back to school and became a dance/movement therapist…
But, in my opinion, what really matters is…
I began my own personal growth and healing journey in my early twenties both because I was interested in it and because I was dealing with depression. Through my own process, I learned many tools and skills that I continue to share with people as needed.
In my thirties, I became a dance/movement therapist. Dance/movement therapy blends the use of movement and words to facilitate healing. (And yes it is a real thing. Google American Dance Therapy Assocation.) I worked for over four years on the eating disorder and general psychiatry units of a hospital in Maryland.
I started my dance/movement therapy private practice in 2001 in Columbia, Maryland.
My work evolved to include manifestation coaching with a specialty in working with conscious business owners and helping professionals as a kind of alternative business coach. If you’re not familiar with manifestation, it’s the practice of transforming your desires into reality.
In the meantime, I had begun taking classes at the Inspiration Consciousness School in Maryland where I trained to become an integrative breathworker. Once I completed that training, I added breathwork to the tools that I used to support my clients.
In 2008, I founded the Center for Embodied Consciousness. I rented space to other practitioners at the center, but in the summer of 2011, I became clear that running what seemed to be a wellness center type of business was not in alignment with my purpose. I closed the space and moved my office to my home.
I began offering online meditation practices and online workshops early in 2011 and discovered that I loved it! In 2012, I launched my first online membership community called Flowing with Change. For the next few years, I created more online courses and programs.
In the fall of 2017, I committed to working with heart-based, on purpose entrepreneurs. I launched the Entrepreneurs’ Abundance Circle. It was an online membership community where I provided live, online training for heart-based, on purpose women entrepreneurs.
In early 2018, I started offering online Manifesting Clients Classes. I loved teaching them. And in August of 2018, this website and the Manifesting Clients Academy was born.
In late 2019, I did my first live event in Florida and decided I love doing live events. And then, in 2020 because of COVID19 and social distancing, I recommitted to growing my business online. My new online membership community – the Moving Sidewalk Movement – was born. I also discovered I love doing my events online. I turned one of my events – the Manifesting Clients Hoopla – into a fantastic online event. In 2021, In April of 2021, I offered the first Get On Your Moving Sidewalk Event.
On August 2, 2021, on my 60th birthday, I launched my book Keep Moving Forward: A Guide for the On Purpose Solopreneur. Click here to get it on Amazon. It’s been well received with lots of 5-star reviews!
In December 2021, I realized I knew how to help speakers be authentically vibrant. By combining what I learned as a dance/movement therapist and speaker, I put together a new program called Speak With Your Body and began teaching entrepreneurs how to break free from childhood and corporate conditioning that had squashed their authentic expression. Through this process, I realized anyone can become a dynamic and engaging speaker!
In October 2022, my business evolved again with the birth of the Vibrant Entrepreneurs Circle (my newest membership community) and new packages. In 2023, I started hosting summits and am having a great time with them.
