Welcome to bonus Episode 4 of the Working Woman Entrepreneur Podcast. My name is Anne Meador the host and creator of the show. This is just a short episode to thank all of you who have listened to the show over the past year and also the wonderful guests that have been on the show. There are a lot of other podcasts out there (more every day), so I am grateful and thankful that you listen to the show.

I started the podcast because I loved listening to other Entrepreneur interview style podcasts. Such as Entrepreneur On Fire and The Smart Passive Income. But what I especially loved were the episodes when they interviewed female entrepreneurs who were also Mom’s. You’ve got to agree or at admit that Mom’s running their own businesses definitely have significantly different challenges than those without families. It was time-consuming to find those specific episodes.  I loved hearing about these women who in my mind have it all. They were juggling, their business, their families and their households while taking care of themselves. I was and still am in awe of these women.  If they can do it so can I and so can you. Hence, the tagline “Ladies We Can Have It All.”  So like many other podcasters I decided to make the show that I wanted to listen to so here I am a year and 50 episodes later.

As a thank you for listening to the show I want to give away some books that were written by some of my former guests….including a copy of The Miracle Morning…..An amazing book that changed my life.  Just sign up for the community to the right of this post. I will randomly choose the winner by March 4th.

Kate Erickson is a creator, engager and implementer over at EOFire, a 7-day a week podcast that interviews today's most inspiring and successful entrepreneurs. She is also the host of Kate's Take: The Entrepreneur On Fire Audio Blog and author of The Fire Path: A Beginner's Guide to Growing Your Online Business. Kate is passionate about helping entrepreneurs create freedom in their business and life through developing systems and processes that can help their business scale and grow.

Current Business: Entrepreneur on Fire

Kate has been such an inspiration to me, I consider her one of my virtual mentors.

There were so many things I wanted to talk to her about, but when I really thought about it there wasn’t a doubt in my mind what that was. I’ve heard her talk about her “journey” over the years, but she shared a lot of details in a post she wrote on her blog Why job security is BS (and how to leave your 9-5) . This is a topic near and dear to my heart.  I know a lot of the listeners feel the same way and want to figure out how to do it for themselves.

Kate's Story

Kate was like a lot of us.  Climbing the corporate ladder and then figuring out that letting someone else be the “master of her destiny” was not the way she wanted to live her life. When she became self aware to the fact that being unhappy M-F in order to be happy on the weekend was just crazy. She walks us through her process:

Phase I: The Decision

Phase II: The Preparation

Phase III: The Leap

The Escape Plan

Everyone’s story is different so we talk about different ways to form and execute a plan to leave your 9-5, which I now refer to as the "Escape Plan."

Internal/External Influences

We also talk about how she dealt with friends and family who didn’t understand entrepreneurship. That negative inner voice that some of us suffer from a.k.a "The Impostor Syndrome" (who am I to do this).

You

Do you agree that job security is BS?

What's holding you back?

Are you ready to put down on paper your “Escape Plan?”
