The Helpful Brand was founded in December 2015 by Kat Soper. Kat started the company to combining her life-long passion for helping people achieve their goals, and extensive corporate experience into one cohesive bundle.
For the first two years, Kat kept the company small, and operated a wait-list, so that she could be freed up to help care for her terminally ill father.
After Kat’s father passed away in September 2017, it was a chance to reevaluate and decide where to next. That’s when Kat decided she was all in.
During 2018, Kat, and husband Neil worked to automate Kat’s unique Business Health Check which helps business owners quickly assess their business health, and work out where the immediate priorities for improvement lie.
Since it’s release, The BOSS Health Check has been a game changer for many businesses, and it forms the base for everything The Helpful Brand does.
Who do we help?
We help successful entrepreneurs SMASH their business growth goals, without burning themselves out.
- Entrepreneurs who are feeling burnt out, and need things to change.
- Goal-driven action takers who want to achieve their goals, but need a plan or some help to get there.
- People who want to improve their sales revenue and sell more of their cool stuff
- Busy entrepreneurs who want to leverage their time more effectively, achieve more but do less
We are based in Wellington, New Zealand so we are on GMT +12 time zone, but we work with clients globally.
Why we do what we do
We know systems change lives because they changed ours!
The first time a system changed our lives was in about 2006. We were introduced to a debt management system which revolutionised how we used our money and achieved their goals.
The change was dramatic.
It made such a huge difference to our marriage and lives at large that we started telling everyone we knew. Pretty soon we started to see them experience dramatic results too.
That was the catalyst that caused Kat to leave her career in Sales and Marketing and start helping people with this system. Neil later joined the team too.
After starting a family in 2008, we moved to Perth. Neil worked in high-level management for a global electrical company and Kat focussed on growing the family.
In 2013 we moved back to New Zealand. Now that the family was established, Kat started working as the Head of Training and Projects for New Zealand’s largest Virtual Assistant Company. It reminded her of the passion she has for helping people achieve their goals and made her hungry once again to help others change their lives using smart systems.
In 2015 The Helpful Brand was born, and the rest is history.
We’ve now helped hundreds of business owners around the globe achieve the results they’ve been looking for and have the ability to scale without burning out.
