Kate Erickson is the engine that powers the daily Entrepreneurs On Fire Podcast as well as Podcasters Paradise, an online educational resource teaching aspiring and seasoned podcasters how to create, grow, monetize, and build a sustainable business. Kate shares her mastery of business systems in her Kate’s Take podcast. In her new podcast, Nicole and Kate Can Relate—she shares entrepreneurial insights with friend and fellow podcaster Nicole Baldinu.
Kate’s path is a study in adaptation - harnessing skills from the industries of marketing, advertising, and banking. She left corporate America behind to build a seven-figure business. In 2013, Kate joined forces with her longtime partner John Lee Dumas at Entrepreneurs On Fire—an award-winning daily business podcast. These podcasting innovators continue to empower countless others to follow their lead while living the life of their dreams in Puerto Rico.
After graduating with a master's in English, Kate set her sights on becoming a college professor. Educational funding cutbacks in the state of California derailed Kate’s journey into teaching. In the third year of a position in the human resources department of a bank, she was promised a promotion which was given to another employee. Kate decided to create a new life on her terms.
Today, Kate transmits all her experience from years navigating the landscape of corporate advertising, marketing, creative writing, and harnessing the power of automation in business. It was a privilege to host Kate on this episode of Intrinsic Drive™.
