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.
In This Episode You’ll Find Out About:
- How Katie and her family lived on $120 a week in order to start her company, Puj, and how it later became a million dollar business in it’s first year.
- The lessons Katie learned about being authentic in her business, while still being professional.
- Katie’s newest product release that is currently on Kickstarter.
- How Katie came to the realization that we need to stop the glorification of busy.
- The struggles Katie and I still face in our lives and careers when it comes to getting help and delegating.
- The struggles I’ve had lately overcoming the limiting beliefs that come with comparing our own abilities to other people’s abilities.
- The challenges Katie and I have both faced when putting boundaries on technology, and the habits we have found useful to combat the temptation to check social media all the time.
- The areas of her personal life that Katie gets help with and how she determined which things she needed to delegate, based on her company and personal Values.
- How to determine which things to do yourself, and which things to delegate.
- How Katie weaves her Values into her business and makes decisions based off them, particularly when difficult decisions pop up.
- What Katie would tell someone just starting out on this journey.
Katie got a lot of inspiration from Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
