    Social Media: The Misconceptions and How to Use it to Positively Change your Life with Kate Kennedy

    Kate Kennedy is a Chicago-based entrepreneur, author, podcast host and pop culture commentator. After spending almost 7 years in corporate marketing and advertising, her life changed one day when she decided to create a doormat that said “Turn Off Your Curling Iron” so she wouldn’t burn her apartment down. She loved them so much she started selling them and the business took off! She sold thousands and thousands of doormats reminding people of things that they forget when they’re running out the door. She was actually able to quit her job within a year. Since then she’s also written a #1 new release book on her love/hate relationship with social media called Twinkle, Twinkle, Social Media Star and has a pop culture influencer-focused podcast, Be There in 5 Podcast.
    In this episode, Kate shares…

    How she turned the idea for her doormats into a successful company

    Her take on the importance of social media

    How she separates her personal identity from her business’s

    Common misconceptions about social media stars

    Why our struggles are often what makes us most relatable

    How to prevent social media from negatively affecting your mental health
