Episode 206: Persistence, Confidence, And The Power Of Relentless Cold Calls with Year & Day’s Kathryn Duryea Wyndowe The LIVELY Podcast: No Makeup Needed

    • Business

Kathryn Duryea Wyndowe is a tableware designer with an incredible journey reinventing her career several times. She is the Founder and CEO of Year & Day, but she had humble beginnings where she admits she did a lot of cold calling.
In this episode, we’ll dive into Kathryn’s journey from a stint at the White House, to Tiffany & Co Marketing pro, to truly changing the tableware and home entertaining industry with Year & Day. Kathryn touches on how her upbringing and her move from NYC to SF inspired her YOLO moment, and how she got the confidence to cold call and meet with people to build relationships and advance her career.
We’ll also hear from LIVELY ambassador and blogger Vanessa Gatlin, who decided to leave the traditional 9-5 work structure when she realized her role was no longer serving her, started working part-time in a yoga studio, blogging, and then eventually starting her own business called Pretty Creative.
