"Fear is so boring." - Daily Dose Minisode
"What's really cool is that if you make a little break, even the smallest break in the clouds, if you change course two degrees...If you were on a boat, and you're heading out, and you change the compass by two degrees, and you go out 50 more miles, 100 more miles, you don't wind up two degrees different than where you started. You'll literally wind up in a different continent. So just by changing the pattern to degrees, you'll be amazed. It'll be a lot."

"It takes so much courage to receive and let ourselves be happy." - Daily Dose Minisode
"What if we all really, really thought about our upper limit? And how scary really giving to ourselves, really letting ourselves have our joy. Like, this really is what it comes down to. It's so foreign that we were like, 'No, that can't be it. It's just something else.' Right? It's fascinating. So maybe, maybe you're gonna get everything that you wanted. And then what? You'll have a lot more interesting problems to solve."
"It's not your job." - Daily Dose Minisode
"We don't even realize how we continue to perpetuate the constant criticism, the constant belief, the constant reiterating of the disempowering ways we show up in the world. It's not your job to take care of everyone. It's not your job that everyone likes it. It's not your job that people are concerned that you're busy on a project that you like and then you're not sure if it's going to make money on day one. It's not your job if every customer gets what they need. It's not your job. It's just not. Your job is to show up and be the incredible, unique human being that God made uniquely you. And the world needs it."

"Step into your greatness." - Daily Dose Minisode
"It's interesting, isn't it? That the people who touch our hearts and the people who lead us through battle are not the people who were ever perfect. These are the people with the bruises and the broken parts. And they let you see their scars. And they don't say, 'Look at me.' They say, 'Come with me. We're going together.' And you can only come with someone who meets you where you're at. And so it's the people who've been broken, my friends. It's all of us. We are the leadership."

Hands down my favorite podcast! 🙌
Amazing! Favorite new friend!
Wife, momma and small business entrepreneur... when I felt like I needed to stop the side hustle of making decorated cookies because it wasn’t enough...I found Cathy late one night when I was trying to finish an order! She inspired me well past midnight and now she’s part of my daily routine! Every message is just what a need to hear! Leaving my career after 13 years and becoming a stay at home momma left me nervous and afraid...but Cathy is proving that I’m fearless in what I can do! Thank you, new friend, for being just the person I needed! And that music you play...love it! I cannot thank you for giving me the push to keep decorating and striving to still achieve all I am!
Hearing Dr Edith for the first time was like sitting down with my own grandmama. The words of this 90 something year old couldn’t be more relevant to what millennials face today. Thanks for bringing her voice to my ears and now I’m hooked on your podcast!!!!
