In this episode…

Before she started Simple Pin Media, Kate Ahl was facing complete poverty. Living on food stamps and running out of unemployment, Kate knew she had to make a change. A friend gave her the idea to manage Pinterest accounts, and Kate began investing in the opportunity. Now, the company has scaled to 38 employees, 120 clients, two memberships, and a podcast. How did Kate do it?

A major part of Kate’s accomplishment was making sure that she didn’t chase someone else’s success. She got clear on who she serves — clients, the community, and customers — and stuck to it. Wherever you are in life, your path is your path. Just because you’re different from somebody else doesn’t mean you’re not successful.
