I lost all hope in my future and then I found this podcast. Cathy makes you feel like you can do anything in life and the people she interviews proves that you can. I am constantly raving about this podcast and her media groups. Her interviews are detailed and always give me content to walk away with and use. I wish more podcast could be so uplifting and inspiring. I look forward to hearing her voice and encouragement. Thank you Cathy and staff for making hope feel hopeful once again.

I've been listening to Cathy on Don't Keep You Day Job for some time and she's the real deal! No pretense, nothing superficial, just compassion and and a desire to help others find their purpose. This is one of only a few podcasts I subscribe to because it fuels my inspiration, leaves me with new ideas, and reminds me of what is possible within myself. Cathy's book is also a great read; I recommend the audiobook, narrated by her. She has a wonderful online community and has worked so hard to fulfill her mission to help people feel seen and find their purpose. Summary: Subscribe and enjoy! It's awesome!

I discovered the podcast about a year and a half ago when I was in the dark night of the soul! And it has stuck with me ever since. It never ends to take me out of my own head and reshape my beliefs on what I can do. The ideas sometimes make me nervous which is good 😁 Because I have work to do 👊

This podcast and Cathy have truly changed my life! We all have the gifts, we all have the talent and we all have a purpose. What we need is to get out of our own way! Cathy is a true example and leader of taking 20 seconds of courage over and over until it becomes second nature. Getting it done is better than getting it perfect. Her words and wisdom are the answers to that sneaky little thing that's always holding us back. Thank you to you and your guests for sharing this in each episode!

This podcast is such a blessing and should not be missed by anyone. Cathy is such an amazing host and not only are her guests repeatedly inspiring, but her content, questions, insights, and suggestions always leave me with a bigger heart and a greater determination to strive for my goals and dreams. Definitely my favourite and one I always mention to family, friends and even new acquaintances.
