Coach, Ads Manager, Course Creator: How Ana Katz Overcame Fear to Build a Successful Business

What fears are holding you back from going after your dreams? 

My guest today is Ana Katz who is here to share how she overcame her fears and built a thriving business. 

Ana is a Facebook & Instagram Ads Strategist who works with online course creators and e-commerce businesses that have an eye on the future and are ready to make a bigger impact. She focuses on getting her clients bigger results, major traffic, more sales, and customers who can’t stop talking about your brand.

She has some impressive experiences to share with us today. We’re getting into how she overcame the fear of putting herself out there, how she went from a corporate job to having her own business, how the pandemic led her to create a coaching program, and how she helped one of her clients go from 300 to 10,000 people on her email list in four weeks. 

On Today’s Show You’ll Learn:

  • What it was like for Ana to take the jump and leave the corporate world 
  • How to overcome the fear of putting yourself out there
  • Why getting results takes so much more than just running ads 
  • The importance of nurturing relationships 
  • The value of truly understanding your audience 
  • The impact of showing up 
  • How to overcome imposter syndrome
  • Why you have to be able to say no 

Not everyone is willing to put in the work to overcome their fears. But Ana is the proof that the work is worth it! 

When most online course creators try to figure out what makes other course creators successful, they usually start by asking, “what are they doing?

Does that sound like you?

What you don’t realize is that you’re asking the wrong question. The better question to ask is “what am I doing that they’re not doing?”

And it’s often hard to answer that question for yourself because you’re too close to your own business. 

Feeling like you’re spinning your wheels and staying stuck is one of the most frustrating places to be in your online business, especially when you see other course creators who are getting the success that you’re working so hard to achieve.

Remember that you do not have to do this alone. There is a brand new community of like-minded online course creators waiting for you inside the Optimized CEO Community Facebook group. This is my brand new group and I would love for you to join us!  Head to and I’ll see you inside!
