Episode 30: How to Make Business (And Love) Fun Again with Katie Grimes

Filed in All Episodes, Business Strategy, Emotional Intelligence — May 3, 2022

About the Episode

As you know, the Shamelessly Ambitious Podcast is all about bringing guests to the forefront who can help us remember that we can do business differently, ditch the shame, and experience wild success. Hear me when I say this… success is different for everybody. That doesn’t mean it’s perfect. SUCCESS and PERFECTION are not the same. I think we all need that reminder. 

So, today I’m talking to my dear friend & client, Katie Grimes. This woman has a gift for tying LOVE into BUSINESS. And when I say that, I mean that she has the ability to help women and men discover love in their lives, and also to discover and find love within their business. As a holistic business coach, I’ll repeat once again, life, love, and business are all deeply connected. Everything comes together, and Katie does it so brilliantly.

Thanks for listening. Thanks for being here.

I am the definition of duality—I swear like a sailor and break rules like it’s my job, but I also hold incredible space for my clients and work my ass off to help them achieve the success they’re after (but faster).

My background in counseling and my experience founding three multi-6-figure businesses gives me a unique perspective on what it means to show up and serve as an ethical and successful CEO. Leaning on my experiences, along with the experiences of the hundreds of women I’ve been honored to work with, I offer founders a psych-backed and human-first approach to scaling their legacies—both in and out of the office. 

I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to anything, but especially business. Because at the foundation of any profitable, sustainable, ethically sound business is one thing: humans being humans. And to do anything without first considering the human behind the action (i.e., with intention and vulnerability) is to remove our most powerful predictor of success—ourselves.

Around here, you’ll find a personalized and multidimensional client experience paired with a few tastefully dropped fucks. You’ll also find a new way of being in business that’s sustainable, ethical, and built around your life (not the other way around).
