Hi, I'm Stacy
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to break the 9-to-5 and run a business completely of your design? Kate Peterson, author-illustrator of the newly released travel journal, Around the World and Back Again, did just that. In this episode, she shares how she journeyed from unhappy, full-time employee to landing a coveted book deal with Penguin Random House; overcame fear and self-doubt to pitch her next book; and embraced adventure and travel. We also discuss how travel influences and supports creativity, and the power of intentional discomfort. Kate is insightful, smart, and an inspiration to every daydreaming creative out there.
