  • Hello Kate & Mike,
    I do believe that I am a part of the wave of increased Bschool- enrollees you have attracted with your brilliant move of drawing that line in the sand and claiming your own happiness… I really enjoyed listening to you two this morning (your banter cracks me up)… I am really proud of my timing too… Especially after listening to this… I just feel really glad that I signed up for this B School… and with you… at this time. Nothing beats real. You have earned my trust and respect. Thank you

    • Kate Northrup

      Wow Erin! That’s so cool. Welcome welcome and thank you for your kind words. We’re so happy to have you in our B-School family!

  • Loved this episode! I am in the B School family as well, and it was fascinating to hear about how you have transformed your launch. I definitely felt that you stood shoulder to shoulder with Marie, and I never would have known that you hadn’t always embodied that energy.

    Great show as always :)

  • Hi Kate and Mike,
    I just couldn’t help but say thank you! This episode was awesome. I absolutely love how real you both are. I have a tape in me that was placed ages ago that in order to be successful you can’t be yourself. You are a great example of how to simply be you and how that can help us all love ya even more.
    Mike I am excited to listen to your new podcast!
