Entrepreneur, Business Consultant, Writer, Speaker

Hi, I’m Katherine Chalmers. I’m a fourth-generation female entrepreneur with a passion for innovative technology and an addiction to growth hacking for fast-paced startups.

My day job: As the Strategic Director for VelocityMarketing.com, I develop growth marketing strategies and deploy marketing technology for B2B software and technology companies.

My fun gigs: When I’m not making stuff, baking, or doing science projects with my kids, I blog here about business, marketing, life style design, productivity hacks and other fun things in life. When I have time, I blog at WhatsFun.com, a site dedicated to lifestyle design for fun-loving, tech-savvy moms.

I also teach for the FCPS Adult Education Program and serve on the board of the Colvin Run PTO.

Graham Gillen

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
