Katie Lee is a lifestyle designer (aka: daily life expert) for lady-gogetters, specifically the ones who can’t seem to figure out why time seems to slip past them each day.
Through her bestselling book The Effortless Everyday: How to design your daily life to free up time and energy for what really matters, powerful weekly emails, speaking appearances and her How to Break Free From Busy Bootcamp she teaches high-achieving women how to do daily life so they get everything done while making it all feel effortless.
In this episode, Katie talks openly about her husband, who she has been with since the age of 15, and about the specific tactics they use to keep their marriage strong. She talks about being burnt-out on self-help (even though she works in that industry), and we discuss the dangers of marketing campaigns that make people feel like they are broken and need to be fixed. We talk about change - specifically the benefit of making small changes - and Katie also shares her experience of our culture's obsession with being busy and the discomfort of taking any time off, especially as a woman. I loved this chat, and I hope you do too!
