I'm Kat!

I’m a journalist & marketer turned storyteller & podcaster. After launching my first podcast in 2017, I was hooked. Since then, I’ve not only become a serial podcaster but have helped a bunch of awesomesauce people & orgs not to just ride the audio wave, but to create their own as a podcast strategist. If making something that’s genuinely GOOD and not just a thinly-veiled sales pitch is what you’re into, we’re each other's kind of person.

Listen on: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | More

Is there a topic you’re super passionate about that you feel isn’t getting covered enough or properly? Feel like your unique perspective is missing, but don’t feel ready to jump in the ring?

Brand Strategist & Content Marketer Cassandra Le was in the same spot. After months of standing on the sidelines though, they decided to do something about it and launched the “I’m lost, so what?” podcast to explore the nuances of “belonging” and carving your own path as multicultural, hyphenated folx.

If you too are wondering how to step up and use your voice, this episode is for you: Tune in as we deconstruct Cassandra’s journey to uncover why creative expression is a fab life (and yes, even business) goal worth investing in.

We dig into:

  • What the frequency illusion is and why it’s a good thing if you’re experiencing it
  • The key step that’ll help you get clarity and take action
  • How focusing on having fun and what’s in it for you is not selfish, but actually super helpful
  • Why investing in your idea, even if – or actually, especially if – it’s “just” for you makes all the difference
