Marlaperri ,

Love this

I have read the book, attended some of the virtual chats and now listened to 2 podcasts and it keeps on giving. Honestly! All with the same theme of reinventing your life but so many different ideas and fabulous content from very unique guests that I get something out of every event. I strongly suggest listening no matter where you are in your personal or professional life. Kathi is a great interviewer and makes her guests comfortable and you will feel like you are eavesdropping on friends special conversations. I am excited to listen to episode 2 but want to space them out, so that I get every nugget of motivation they have to give❤️🌈😀

Spide72 ,

Kathi has stellar guests and a powerful message that is inspiring. Quality show all around! Keep up the great work team!!!

Margo Lovett ,

Glad to have found your podcast

Kathi, thanks for writing your book and letting it power your podcast. When I reinvented myself, I could not find a show such as yours. Glad that you are here offering information and taking away Mr. Scary (if only for a minute) from the process of reinvention.
