  • Hello Kate & Mike!

    I’m totally digging this podcast episode and would love to leave a review, just because I think you should know how awesome you are :)

    “Kate and Mike have such a fun way of taking overwhelm out of everything. I was absolutely lost in my first year of business – not knowing where to go or who to turn to for advice. It helps to have people in your world who are dealing with the same struggles, and are somehow navigating the challenges with fun, humor, lots of good stories, and way less stress. Now that I’m more established and looking at next steps, I’m still tuning into the Kate & Mike show. I love how inclusive this podcast feels. It’s like having next door neighbors and business partners all rolled into one! I love the casual feel coupled with strategy and support. Keep on rocking it! You guys are doing great work, and I hugely appreciate it!”

  • Congratulations on your 1 year Podcast anniversary! I’ve been listening consistently over the last year and always learn so much. Thank you!
    And thank you for talking about Rochelle’s wedding. I’ve been to some of her workshops and love her and all that she does. No surprise her wedding was SO magical! And her dress, WOW.
    One of my all time favorite episode was the one with your Mom. Love seeing your joy and laughter and love for each other. Keep on creating and sharing, you and Mike are appreciated!
