Today is a big day: my newest online class, Work+Worth, is now open for registration and I’ve got a new TLS Q+A episode for you!

Work+Worth is three weeks long (starting April 6th, 2016) and will focus on overcoming the stress, exhaustion and emotional roller coaster that happens when we over identify our self-worth with our careers.

You can learn more about Work+Worth and register for the class here.

Today’s TLS Q+A episode is also dedicated to the subject of self-worth and work:

I’m talking about how to respond the “so what do you do?” question, handle negative feedback from family members, deal with self-worth and work issues, and more.



Today on The Lively Show we have one of our first repeat guests, Pat Flynn, of the Smart Passive Income podcast.  

I’ve been a HUGE fan of Pat and his show for years now, and today we’re diving into a topic he hasn’t shared much about: the creative and entrepreneurial mindsets he’s deliberately exposing his children to as they develop.

In addition, we’re also discussing the topic of his new book, Will It Fly?, which addresses ways that we can validate and test potential business ideas to determine whether they would be financially successful before we invest a lot of our time and money.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is interested in ways to expose children to a creative or entrepreneurial mindset, or is interested in learning about how to test business ideas before investing a lot of time and money.



Today on The Lively Show, I’m doing an impromptu Mini Edition sharing those two big announcements I’ve been hinting at recently:

  1. We’ve bought our first house and are moving from Austin, TX to Ann Arbor, MI!
  2. I’m writing my first book!

In the episode, I’m sharing more about both of these exciting developments: why we’re moving away from our beloved Austin, and what the new book will be about!

This episode is perfect for anyone interested in why the heck we’re moving to Michigan, and what I’ve been struggling with – until recently – that I’m going to devote my first book to… 



Welcome to the final week of Money Month!

I’m pumped for this episode because I believe it holds the key to succeeding in any other goal in our financial lives that we’ve covered in money month and in our previous money episodes from TLS season one.

Today I’m talking with Farnoosh Torabi, she’s a bestselling financial author, coach, TV personality, and podcaster out to help people live richer, happier lives.

Today we’ll be discussing the money mindsets that have the power to cause us to succeed or fail in our financial lives. This is an amazing framework that applies to anything we want in life, far beyond money as well! 

Plus, Farnoosh is answering TLS listener questions about money.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is unsure about why they haven’t succeeded with their financial goals so far, or wants to learn how to implement effective financial strategies.



Today’s Lively Show is the second half of last week’s popular topic: 27 Ways to Make Money Online. This week we are speaking with Jessie Artigue of

After seeing friends and online business owners, Hilary Rushford (Dean Street Society) and Jessie Artigue (Style & Pepper) rock out a packed session at Alt Summit on 27 Ways to Make Money Online, I knew I needed to bring their great content to you through The Lively Show!

In the show, she’s dishing on the ways she’s done things in the past, doling out advice based on what she’s learned, and giving us a peek into what she’s focusing on right now.

Next week, Jessie will come on the show and share her income streams over the years and her advice for people just starting out, as well as more seasoned business owners.

Today is the 1st Anniversary Special and season 1 finale for The Lively Show!

And I have the perfect guest to celebrate with.

Today’s guest is Pat Flynn, an incredibly genuine and successful business owner with a blog and podcast called Smart Passive Income.

Pat owns several companies, and documents his business successes and failures on his blog each month.

In this episode, we talk about the mindset shifts and personal habit changes he’s made from when he got laid off from his architecture job in 2008, to today, where he regularly earns around $100,000 per month(!).

We also discuss his business Values, personal life Values, and how he prioritizes his wife and children.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is looking to design a career based on their Values, or wants to learn from someone who has achieved massive success personally and financially while staying grounded along the way.


TheLivelyShowWithKaiteRichardson This Lively Show is thanks to a tag @shanderson22 left for me on Katie Richardson’s Instagram photo that declared, “stop the glorification of busy.”

I’m talking with the incredible Katie Richardson, a wife, mother of four littles, and the founder of the practical and stylish children’s line, Puj. This episode is more of a conversation than a traditional interview. Katie and I both explore the challenges, triumphs, and limiting beliefs we face when it comes to detaching ourselves from busy-ness.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is over-scheduled, overwhelmed, or wants to drop the word “busy” from their vocabulary.


Today on the Lively Show, I have an awesomely helpful episode that is as eye-opening as it is easy to start applying to your life today!

I’m talking with Jay Papasan, a bestselling writer and co-author of New York Times Bestselling book, The One Thing.

Jay’s insights are incredible, there is SO much goodness for you to dive into.  Don’t miss it!

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to find clarity in their life and improve their results from family to career.


Today on the Lively Show, I’m having a very open, honest conversation with illustrator, graphic designer, author, and friend, Becky Murphy about the “not-so-Instagram-y” side of small business.

In more of a dialogue than an “interview,” we dive into the doubts, struggles, and mistakes we’ve made on our paths as entrepreneurs.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn about challenges of small business, or for small business owners who are looking to feel a little less alone when things feel hard.


Today I’m kicking off the 2015 Lively Show guest episodes with Tina Roth Eisenberg!

Tina is a designer, blogger, keynote speaker, and founder of:

Tattly – A temporary tatttoo shop in Brooklyn that I work with to produce the intention tattoos.

Creative Mornings – A monthly worldwide lecture series.

TeuxDeux – My very favorite to-do app ever.

Swissmiss – Her popular design blog.

In the show, we talk about how Tina uses her Values to design her businesses and her interactions with her family.
