Corporate America to entrepreneurship with Kate Erickson. LF 004

Kate Erickson joins me on the Learning on Fire podcast and explores the most important learning and educational moments that shaped her life.

Our guest – Kate Erickson

Kate’s journey takes her from working in Corporate American to an entrepreneurial  leap that resulted in creating a copywriting agency, that didn’t work out, then back into Corporate America. It took courage, insightfulness and the understanding that combining passions and expertise can be a winning formula.

Her decision to take another leap of faith and partner with her boyfriend on the now hugely successful Entrepreneurs on Fire as Content Creator and ‘Implementer’ has helped them become digital nomads and be able to travel the world while continuing to run their business.

If you would like to explore ways to combine your passion and experience then how about this FREE course Your Big Idea. Kate’s partner and EOFire host John Lee Dumas walks you through step-by-step to find Your Big Idea with video tutorials and timed exercises.
