Today’s conversation was with Kat of the Kat Schmoyer brand, Dear Sweetheart Events and the Creative At Heart Conference! I’ve been following Kat for years and have loved attending the C@H conference every year. It’s always been a place for me to refresh my heart and soul around my business and it’s beautiful to see how my business has evolved over the years because of it!

Kat and I chat all about quarterly planning which is a concept that has become a pillar of how I run my own business! It’s a process that I swear by and I’m so excited for everyone to be able to listen in to hear about it from the quarterly planning & calendar queen herself!

We also touched on balancing a multi-passionate heart and business, something I’ve admired about Kat from day one. Tune in to the whole conversation for Kat’s advice on entrepreneurship whether you’re starting out or a seasoned business owner!

Here’s a look at what we covered during our conversation today:

Memorable Moments & Quotes from today’s episode

02:19 “Quarterly planning is organizing your business in a way that allows you to see – can a goal actually happen in a given time frame.”

10:20 “Figuring out a rhythm that will allow you to feel like – you can wear all of the hats that you’re wearing, so that you’re not getting burnt out, by trying to juggle too many things, or you’re not feeling like one is falling behind because you’re putting such heavy emphasis on the other.”

17:29 “If I’m really feeling those imposter syndrome feelings, I need a complete break from social media. I need to stop looking at what other people are doing, I need to stop comparing.”

19:56 “My business is mine, not anybody else’s, and I know that might sound really silly, but I feel like we just can sometimes get so caught up in what we feel like we have to do or what we’re supposed to do in our business.”

Be sure to tune in to the full episode to hear more about quarterly planning, being a multi-passionate entrepreneur, and imposter syndrome.
