Join Cat as she shares her experiences from designing around the world. Cat knows where the best Wi-Fi is, where mangos drip sweet nectar, and where she can find a quiet corner for a conference call while sipping a cold beer in a tropical location. Cat has ventured to the North Pole, slept on the beach, been fed exotic food by locals who only communicate through nods and hand gestures, and always goes off the beaten path. Cat will walk you through how she leverages opportunities such as art licensing, online teaching, and print-on-demand to grow her business, strengthen her brand, and work from anywhere in the world on her own terms. The key to this work/travel lifestyle? Passive income!
Cat Coquillette is a location-independent illustrator, designer and lettering artist from KC. Driven by her passions for entrepreneurship and exploration, Cat now travels the world full-time and runs her business remotely. Her “office” changes daily as you can often find her designing her latest series from a coffee shop, co-working space, or airport terminal somewhere in the world.
Cat is passionate about design, education, and experiencing new cultures firsthand. Her designs are directly inspired by her worldwide travels, and she builds her portfolio based on the people, places, and events that fascinate her most along the way.
