Kathleen Shannon is co-founder of Braid Creative, a personal branding agency for creative entrepreneurs who blend work and life – like designers, writers, artists, foodies, yogis and lifestyle professionals.
Kathleen also co-hosts the Being Boss podcast for creative entrepreneurs where she shares weekly interviews, insights, and candid conversation on what it takes to be boss – from mindset to habits to blending who you are with what you do.
In this episode, Kathleen and I get right to the heart of some wonderfully weighty topics, such as the deeply personal decision of whether or not to have children (in which she and I have chosen different paths). We talk about how to deal with fear, the fine line between beneficial growth and self-help addiction, where we both are in our spiritual journeys, the struggle of trying to be authentic online, the unanswerable questions of life, and so much more. This episode is truly Real Talk Radio at its finest, because Kathleen opens up fully and honestly, with no agenda, and shares who she is, what she believes, and what she's going through right now, in real time. I hope you enjoy it!
