If they don’t call you crazy… are you even doing it right?
This week, in honor of the Inspired Living Podcast Anniversary, I thought I would showcase one of my favorite past episodes with one of the most inspiring, honest, and influential women I know, Katrina Scott.
You may know her from being the co-owner of the multi-million dollar company Tone It Up.. or was it Forbes…perhaps from Business Insider, Vogue, Bravo, Women’s Health, or was it from the New York Times Best Sellers List? I know… probably from this year’s SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SWIMSUIT ROOKIE OF THE YEAR!
“I just kept thinking…I hope to represent all women out there who felt like it’s too late for them…IT’S NEVER TOO LATE!” -Katrina Scott
I mean come on, how amazing is that! There are many “celebrities” to follow on Instagram… and they follow her. She is truly an inspiration to every woman and the definition of authenticity. I have watched her career transform, being vulnerable to millions of people about her struggles with fertility and miscarriages and dealing with self-doubt, all while continuing to build one of the greatest fitness empires in the world.
On this encore episode, we sit down and talk about what it takes to grow a business empire, everything from being on camera, establishing a brand, accepting responsibility, and showing up authentically as your truest self.
For more inspiration listen to this week’s episode here.

Here are a few of my favorite takeaways:
- People appreciate brands that show the people behind the purpose of it and the authenticity of your business. The authentic transparent voice behind the brand connects with others and helps build a community in your business
- Being the face of a brand makes you the leader of the company. This requires your total responsibility for your team. If there’s a mistake you should be fully prepared for anything that happens after- and always take it as a learning lesson and always make it right.
- You don’t always have to have it all figured out. You can adapt and evolve and learn along the way and not lose the person with the vision and passion you were before.
