God doesn’t make extras

Cathy’s radical empathy shows in every interview. She inspires us with her enthusiasm and authentic nature and hosts such eclectic guests. Her interview style makes you feel like your eves dropping on a coffee shop chat at the next table. The best is that she sums up all the essential parts every episode to really drive home the takeaways. Thank you Cathy for finding your purpose and encouraging us to find ours.

Above and Beyond

What I love about Cathy is that she has a real through-line with her guests. It’s not just a series of guests—she thinks about what her audience has heard from her other guests and challenges each guest to talk about why they are giving conflicting information from other guests, and what that means. She sees the big picture rather than just throwing a bunch of info at us. I will continue to recommend this podcast to fellow entrepreneurs.
