    Episode 168: How to Get Paid and Do Good at the Same Time with Rha Goddess, author of The Calling

    Episode 168: How to Get Paid and Do Good at the Same Time with Rha Goddess, author of The Calling

    It was March in Boston. The weather sucked, as it does in New England that time of year. This thing that happened had happened to me only one time before.
    I saw a woman I hadn’t seen in years for the first time, and without much warm-up or fanfare, something inside me knew I had to hire her.
    It was as though my body said, "She’s what’s next for you."
    It happened with the coach I worked with in 2018 who helped me unravel some deep patterns that needed...well...unraveling.
    And then it happened again in March 2019.
    I got home after sitting next to Rha Goddess on a panel at Harvard Divinity School and said to Mike, "I need to work with her."
    I hadn’t even been looking for a coach, but there she was.
    And just as my book launch dropped me into a postpartum heap of "I don’t know what I’m doing I think I’ll just quit everything," sitting on my living room floor crying amongst my Mastermind sisters, I was off to New York City to spend a day with Rha.
    I feel so silly saying this now but until I spent that day with Rha, I thought trying to figure out your purpose was a waste of time.
    Can’t we just all keep doing the next right thing and move it along rather than bothering with trying to articulate our purpose? Who really cares, anyway? Aren’t we all here to be of service and feel good, in the end?
    We started at 9am and by lunchtime I realized how wrong I’d been.
    Turns out that for all of us there’s a unique intersection of our gifts and talents, our true nature, and the world’s needs...and it is calling us.
    I just wasn’t ready to listen until I was.
    I learned that I’d been living adjacent to my calling but not precisely aligned with it. In the 7 months since that day in NYC, I’ve realized how much friction and discomfort had been created by living very close to but not right on my calling.
    Just like when you have two magnets really close together so that you can feel the energetic pull between them and it requires concerted energy to prevent them from coming together and aligning, I was living in a constant state of utilizing force to keep myself a few inches from the very place that was calling me.
    And ever since I let go and let myself rest in alignment with where I’m meant to be, everything has gotten so much easier, so much more powerful, and so much more clear.
    I want this for you.
    That’s why we invited Rha on The Kate & Mike Show this week to talk about her game-changing work that guides us all to stay true, get paid, and do good.
    In this episode you’ll hear:
    • How it’s truly possible to do good and make great money and allow yourself to be part of the healing of toxic capitalism
    • Rha’s inspiring story of moving from the world of hip-hop and activism to personal development and entrepreneurial soul coaching
    • The shift that allowed Rha to triple her income in 8 months
    • A beautiful moment where both Rha and I are moved to tears by what she has to say (and show) about how to truly love others
    • Why Rha has held nothing back and put all of her worksheets, exercises, and content into the book, so you can have access to everything for the cost of a library card
    • Where you can start to identify your calling and stay true, get paid, and do good
    When I featured Rha as a Maven Masterclass leader in our membership for entrepreneurs who identify as female or with feminine energy, they went bananas for her. In our end-of-the-year survey, her class was far and above the one mentioned most as the favorite.
    You’re going to get tremendous value out of this conversation.
    Once you’ve listened in, please share a screenshot of the podcast with us on your Instagram stories and tag us - @katenorthrup, @mikejwatts, and @rhagoddess - so we can witness your insights.
    I’m so ecstatic to share this woman who’s impacted my life so profoundly over the last 7 months with

    Episode 167: The Secret to Making More Money While Working Less

    Episode 167: The Secret to Making More Money While Working Less

    When I was a senior in college, Tim Ferriss came out with the first edition of The 4-Hour Work Weekand I was fascinated.
    As a productivity junkie since the age of 14, I couldn’t get enough. I devoured it.
    One of the concepts in particular changed something in me forever.
    The school system had taught me to become well-rounded. The college application process had groomed me to fill in all of the areas and how important it was to excel in academics as well as the arts, athletics, good citizenship, and any other extracurricular activities I could possibly pack into my schedule.
    The pursuit of being good at all the things all the time left me feeling wrung out.
    Enter Pareto’s Principle.
    The concept is simple: 80% of your results will be caused by 20% of your efforts.
    Wait. I didn’t have to be practically perfect in every way?
    What a freaking relief!
    For the first time, I had permission to go all in on only the things that I was the best at that got me results and to stop trying to be good at everything. And, if I did, I would actually get better results. This felt like the closest thing to magic I could have possibly discovered.
    It wasn't until my early 30’s when I was recording a lesson on Pareto’s Principle (aka The 80/20 Rule) that I realized I’d never found a practical way to apply this theory. I wanted a list of my 20% of activities so that I could stay focused on them and not go back to my old way of being kind of good at a lot of things.
    I wanted to really rock a few things to amplify my results.
    Everyone else seemed to just be talking about the theory, so I came up with a simple way to get a list of the 20% of activities that I needed to zero in on to get 80% of my results (and by default a way to get a list of the 80% that I could let go of, outsource, or simply not give my all to).
    If you want to achieve more by doing less, the single most important thing you can do is get clarity on what the 20% of activities is that gives you 80% of your results.
    Turns out you can apply this rule to lots of other areas, too.
    • 20% of your customers will bring in 80% of your revenue.
    • 20% of your customers will give you 80% of your headaches.
    • 20% of your revenue streams will bring in 80% of your money.
    Etc.!
    Want to know the simple way I came up with to figure out your 20% and all of the ways you can apply this rule to your life and business so that you can reduce the number of things you’re doing while increasing your results?
    You’re in luck because that’s what this week’s episode of The Kate & Mike Show is all about!
    Please don’t just listen to the episode. Do the exercise. It will take you less than 10 minutes and will give you years of your life back. I swear.
    Once you’ve listened, take a screenshot of the episode and tag Mike and me on social media to let us know what your 20% is. We can’t wait to hear from you!

    Episode 166: How to Get Sober and Live a Glorious Life with Laura McKowen, author of We Are The Luckiest

    Episode 166: How to Get Sober and Live a Glorious Life with Laura McKowen, author of We Are The Luckiest

    Have you ever had something about yourself that you don’t think is that big of deal, but when you share it, everyone else seems to think it is a big deal?
    That’s Mike and me with drinking. Or not drinking, as the case may be.
    Our most popular episode of The Kate & Mike Show of 2019 BY FAR was the one we did about Sobriety, Substances, and Choosing to Live Awake (episode 137) in which Mike shared his sordid journey with drugs and alcohol, and I shared mine (not so sordid but still worth mentioning).
    That’s why we’re kicking off 2020 with back-to-back episodes on sobriety. Last week we talked with Holly Whitaker about our culture’s f’d up relationship with alcohol and the ways in which the traditional, patriarchal structures of recovery don’t serve everyone.
    This week we’re back with an equally powerful episode with memoirist Laura McKowen about her journey with addiction, getting sober, and then falling deeply in love with her sober life.
    As Laura shares, she thought that sobriety was a sentence for a sad existence without fun or sex or truly living.
    Until her life required her to get sober and discover the truth: that sobriety is an invitation to a truer, more beautiful life, not a sentence.
    You don’t have to want to get sober in order to get the gold from this episode, though I would totally cheer you on if you do!
    In the episode you’ll hear:
    • What Laura did about the shame she was carrying from the things that happened while she was drinking
    • How we forgive ourselves for things we think are unforgivable
    • How to actually feel your feelings and why they won’t kill you (and what opportunities lie on the other side)
    • About the beauty and possibilities of a sober life
    • Laura’s story of getting a book deal (I always have to ask some business questions)
    I’m really excited for you to get to soak in the beauty and wisdom of Laura. She’s a gem. So are you.

    Episode 165: Choosing to Not Drink In A Culture Obsessed with Alcohol with Holly Whitaker, author of Quit Like A Woman

    Episode 165: Choosing to Not Drink In A Culture Obsessed with Alcohol with Holly Whitaker, author of Quit Like A Woman

    Wondering if you have a drinking problem?
    Yeah, I know. That first line is intense.
    Well, here’s what: Today is the first day of a new year. The first day of a new decade, in fact.
    Can you think of a better time to talk about the most widely-used, (abused), and normalized drug on the planet (responsible for more deaths than all of the other drugs combined) and your relationship with it?
    I can’t.
    If you’ve been wondering if you have a drinking problem, if you’ve dubbed yourself sober-curious, if you’ve tried to reduce your alcohol consumption or have tried to quit, if you’re a non-drinker, have someone in your family who struggles with alcohol, or are sober yourself, have I got something for you!
    But before I get there, please know this:
    I come from a family where there’s alcoholism and other addiction, and my husband is sober.
    It’s estimated that 43% of people in the U.S. grew up with, are married to, or have a blood relative who’s an alcoholic or problematic drinker, so the chances that your life has been affected by this drug and addiction are really high.
    This topic has impacted my life profoundly, and I’m bringing it up not from a place of judgment or feeling any shred of blame toward you if you struggle with alcohol.
    I’m bringing it up as a gentle, loving invitation to consider your relationship with alcohol (or that of the people you love) and how it’s adding or detracting from your life.
    What does this have to do with doing less to have more and/or growing your business, you might be asking?
    EVERYTHING.
    Our bodies are our vessels for everything we bring to this world.
    A whole cocktail of biochemical things are happening inside us at all times that result in wild creativity, incredible energy, bliss, and chutzpah up the wazoo or brain fog, confusion, anxiety, depression, tremendous self-doubt, and an inability to manifest what we actually want.
    One of the main things that can cause your body to serve up the latter grouping of human experience is drinking ethanol (which is the same substance that you put in the gas tank of your car) and how much of it you’re drinking.
    It’s my deepest desire and commitment to offer up the best ideas, strategies, experts, insights, and stories for you to access the best of you, so you can light up the world without burning yourself out.
    So, ignoring the topic of alcohol would be irresponsible on my part.
    All right, enough with the preamble.
    I’m so excited to be bringing you an incredible episode of The Kate & Mike Show to kick off this decade with a truly remarkable woman.Ever since I read her new book, Quit Like a Woman: The Radical Choice to Not Drink in a Culture Obsessed with Alcohol, I have told virtually everyone I’ve come into contact with that they MUST read it.
    We invited Holly Whitaker, founder of Tempest Sobriety School and author of Quit Like a Woman, onto the podcast to have a powerful conversation about:
    • The bizarre way our culture thinks about alcohol and why it’s critical to our liberation that we question how it’s been normalized (whether we choose to drink or not).
    • The radical alternative to calling yourself an alcoholic that can grant the gift of a beautiful, conscious, awake life that’s available for problem and non-problem drinkers alike.
    • How alcohol affects women in a profoundly different way than men and the insidious way it’s used as a tool of oppression (this was the part that made my jaw drop the lowest).
    And so much more!
    I know this sounds like a super-heavy conversation, and it certainly was one with gravitas, but the episode is actually really fun because Holly is hilarious and a total firecracker. I think you’ll especially love the part where she talks about how and why she’s raised millions of dollars for her sobriety start-up.
    Liberation is available to you. I hope this conver

    Episode 164: How To Care For Yourself as a Leader with Vanessa and Adam Lambert of Bee the Wellness

    Episode 164: How To Care For Yourself as a Leader with Vanessa and Adam Lambert of Bee the Wellness

    You’re out there serving your people (your clients, community, kids, family, etc.) and making sure they’re living their best lives...but there’s also you.
    How are you taking care of you?
    One of my favorite things to learn about leaders is how they take care of themselves because I get inspired with new ideas to enhance my own wellbeing, capacity, and performance.
    This week on the podcast, we have the extremely good-looking and insightful husband and wife team behind the fitness and adventure brand Bee The Wellness, Vanessa and Adam Lambert.
    I was on their podcast over the summer, and I resonated with them so much that I invited them on for a conversation with Mike and me.
    During this episode we covered:
    • The super-weird wellness trick that has Adam feeling way better than before
    • How their background as firefighters has helped them dial their business in
    • Their best techniques for getting ahead of the content machine that online business can become
    • How their business model is actually one of the ways they take care of themselves
    • How they use plant medicine to move through their blocks
    And so much more!
    Identifying our non-negotiables for taking care of ourselves is so critical not only to our wellbeing, but that of our clients, our family, and our whole community.
    I know I’m not the first person to say this to you, but I hope that if you’re not caring for yourself right now that this might be the time that it actually sinks in.
    You matter. Your wellness matters. Your body matters. Your emotional landscape matters. Your mental health matters.
    As we near the closing of this year, know this:
    There is nothing worth investing in more than yourself because your wellbeing magnifies your impact in a way that’s not possible when you’re not nourished.
    I’d love to know what you learned and what inspired you during the Vanessa and Adam episode and/or what your insights or questions are around caring for yourself as a leader.

    Episode 163: Being and Being Married to a Trans Person with Aydian and Jenilee Dowling

    Episode 163: Being and Being Married to a Trans Person with Aydian and Jenilee Dowling

    Last June I had the absolute pleasure of standing in the back of the room watching my husband Mike share his heart and wisdom on a panel of incredible men at the BirthFit Summit.
    I was so freaking proud of him. Mike shared the stage with a man who spoke about something that really touched me.
    This man was raised as a woman and transitioned to being a man in his early twenties.
    He shared that he was the only person on the panel who knew both what it was like to be perceived as female during one time of his life and male after a certain point.
    As a result, he had a unique perspective because he understood the experience of being a woman in our culture in a way that most other men cannot.
    Aydian Dowling is a transgender man, a trans activist, a speaker, an entrepreneur, a husband, a dad, and someone who is impressively fit, compassionate, and articulate.
    His wife, Jenillee, is an intuitive, a healer, a (MSW) social worker, a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur, and someone who is impressively empathic and transparent.
    Together with their son Antler, they’re a family. Not everyone understands what it means to be a trans person.
    Not everyone thinks they’re worthy of all of the things that everyone deserves.
    But everyone deserves to be loved and to feel a sense of belonging and to be a family.
    We wanted to feature the Dowlings on The Kate & Mike Show for a number of reasons, including that we really resonated with them as parents navigating being independently employed with a young child while also being committed to personal growth and awakening.
    It’s also important to make configurations of family that challenge the status quo more visible, so the world can see that love comes in all forms and configurations and that everyone is worthy of it.
    Listen in to this week’s episode of The Kate & Mike Show to learn:
    • How Aydian, the first transgender man ever to be on the cover of Men’s Health or any other mainstream magazine, first realized who he was.
    • What Aydian understands about women that many men don’t because he was raised female.
    • What the t-shirt that our daughter Ruby wears says that makes Mike uncomfortable and why.
    • The love story between Aydian and Jenilee and what baking had to do with it.
    • How becoming parents has challenged them and made them grow.
    • What’s next for both of them career-wise (they were both beautifully transparent about the moment they’re in right now in co-creating the future).
    Once you’ve listened in to this important episode, we’d love to hear from you.
    What did you learn from this episode?
    How can you apply that to your life and community?

Inspiring fun and nuggest_whilst empting the diswasher

The Podcast with Denise is definitely one of my absolute favorites... Also because I did her Money Boot Camp and have been following Kate's work lately here. And listening to both energies combined was very insipiring and fueled my motivation to handle my money blocks even better...
I listen to these podcasts very often when I'm in the kitchen, when I'm cooking or emptying the diswasher. And as Mike seems to be a bit of an expert, it would be great if he could dedicate one of the podasts on how to optimize the dishwasher load.

Greetings from the South of France....
