“Sometimes you need to stop looking over the edge of the cliff and look around and notice ‘oh yeah, we’re all here together.’ There’s power in that feeling of community.” ~Katy Flatau
Career change and life balance coach Katy Flatau and I talk about how to plan for a career change EVEN IF you are successful, EVEN IF your job isn’t horrible, but when you feel there’s something missing. She shares her own journey from corporate sales job to entrepreneur, feeling like an impostor and how she corrects for that daily through community and connection. We also talk about money, becoming a coach and the nitty gritty of co-founding, partnering and then parting ways on Mindful-U.
