Fear is an Opportunity


‘Kate, how did you recover so profoundly?’ I get this question a lot and on the most recent episode of @thesydcast, I talk all about it.

If you have been curious to learn more about how I went from psychiatric disability and a suicide attempt to running @thedogist, I encourage you to check it out. The podcast is hosted by Sydney Finkelstein, an award winning professor at the Tuck School of Business. I am in absolute awe of this kind human. He is the bestselling author of Superbosses and 25 other books and considered to be one of the world’s greatest leadership gurus.

It was truly an honor to sit down with him and as usual, my anxiety was high and my honesty brazen as we talked all things business and mental illness.

The podcast spans a slew of subjects - hustle, determination, being a lifelong learner, my entire psychiatric history, resilience fostered in pain, the power of radical honesty and stories - and best of all, centers around my favorite truth:

Fear is an opportunity and when we lean into it and feel it completely - we grow beyond it and set ourselves free.

You can check out the episode via @thesydcast or the link in my bio. I can’t wait to hear what you all think of it.
