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?”

Khadija's  passion for helping women comes from triumphing over tragedy in her life, believing in herself, and knowing there are NO limits. In 2007, she became a widow and was suddenly a single mom to five children. Overnight, she had to figure it out; from settling her husband’s estate to finding housing for the six of them, to going from limited income to suddenly having lots of cash! Unfortunately, (or fortunately!) in less than four years she was broke again. Why? Because her money thermostat was set to ‘practically zero’.  She had the erroneous belief that she didn’t deserve to have this money because it was associated with her husband’s death. It was blood money in her eyes and it took a lot of soul searching to erase this belief.

Definition of Success: It's having the money to afford you the time to spend with your family and/or the opportunity to experience other lifestyles. 

Best Advice: Know who you are, know what makes you tick, know what you enjoy doing and honor that about yourself. If it's not your passion don’t do it, trust your gut and trust your instincts.

Secret to Being The Best Mom You Can Be: Continually working on myself.

Time Saver: Meal Planning.
