I’ve personally helped hundreds of women transform their lives, their businesses and their finances.
My passion is to do the same for you.
Rising from a life of poverty, abuse, and adversity, I know too well the struggles of trying to achieve financial security. For 30 years I have helped women transform their lives and their finances. I began my career in 1987 with American Express Financial Advisors (now known as Ameriprise Financial) where I became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. At one point, I was managing over $100 million in assets. I was at the top of my game.
And then something happened …I had “the feeling”
the one you may be having right now…I had a “calling”
a purpose I was not fulfilling in my soul.
You Can Reinvent Yourself
I began the same reinvention process that I now teach my clients. Helping women through self-discovery, healing, and creating true prosperity in their lives was the driving force to establish my coaching programs for women.
At 48, I sold my financial planning practice to launch the Smart Women Companies
which includes Smart Women’s Coaching®, Midlife Millionaire®, Designated Daughter®, and the nonprofit organization, Smart Women’s Empowerment.
This allowed me to offer retirement coaching,
free online resources, transformation retreats,
and host Smart Women Talk Radio.
I know today that it was the right choice
because over the last 15 years, I have been able to reach over a million women globally with my inspirational message of financial empowerment.
Live Your Purpose Brilliantly!
As a Midlife Millionaire® Coach in my own reinvention, I show women how to take charge of their life and finances and believe it’s never too early to plan for expected and unexpected events like retirement, encore careers, moving abroad, or preparing for long-term care. I’ve written several books, created a financial literacy course, and enjoy sharing my message around the world.
I’ve taught financial literacy in women’s shelters, been honored by NAWBO as one of Detroit’s Top 10 Business Women, receiving the Breakthrough Award and hosted Smart Women Talk Radio for the last 10 years interviewing over 400 thought leaders.
No matter where you are on your journey, I can support you. It’s time to find out what your dreams and challenges are so you can begin your own Retirement Reinvention.

Working with Katana has been invaluable for my finances and my business. As my first financial advisor she set me on a path to financial independence, allowing me to retire early from teaching and pursue my dream of being an author. Since my retirement, I have published two books, produced a movie, and become a professional speaker. In the process, Katana has continued to support me by providing valuable connections and other innovative resources. Thank you very much, Katana!
“It seems that whenever I am at a crossroads in my life, Katana has a way of giving me clarity of vision. Her passion and ability to see through situations, then having the courage to say what she sees is why I love and admire her. Her tenacity of belief in attracting amazing things into her life has helped me believe those things can happen to me. Her quality of having wings is remarkable, but her ability to give others wings is truly her crowning glory. Her greatest gift to me is that she encouraged me to never settle, to always believe that I am destined for greatness. She truly is an encouraging, dynamic, and caring individual who is making a difference with her life, and every life she touches.”
“Katana Abbott is one of the GREAT ones. Not only because of what she knows, but because of how she cares. It is a rare combination to find a business executive with extensive knowledge supported by a winning track record, but even more unusual to know, this is a person you can easily work with and trust to have your best interest at heart. Attitude and authenticity is not something you can learn in graduate school, you either have it, or you don’t. Katana Abbott is a one-of-a-kind combination of brains, beauty and brilliance. Highest recommendation.”
