Podcast #19: Why More Money Won’t Motivate You (with Seth & Katie of

The best businesses are about more than just business. That couldn’t be truer than for Katie and Seth of, who joined us for today’s podcast.

When you meet another EntreFamily that’s really rocking their business, you have no choice but to get nosy, ask questions and find out what they’re doing right.

And what they’re doing may surprise you… it’s not so much about the money or the numbers or the specific strategies they’re employing (although yes, there’s all of that) but it’s what’s behind the business strategy that makes the most difference.

I don’t want to give too much away so I’ll let you join us and listen in as Katie and Seth share their story of how they got going, and how they plan to keep moving forward based on their values and vision.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • What led Katie into studying nutrition and how that experience became the catalyst to create
  • About Katie and Seth’s entrepreneurial “aha moment,” when making a living from the blog became a tangible reality
  • How an entrepreneur’s motivation shapes the success or failure of the business
  • Why Katie continues to write: “It’s never been about making money.” ~Katie
  • Strategies for creating, maintaining, and enhancing connections with your customer community.
  • The simple, driving philosophy behind Seth and Katie’s business ventures
  • How to let go, reevaluate, streamline, and stop obsessing over every detail.
  • Their favorite tools to stay organized and keep up with an ever-growing blog.
It was only fitting to include a photo of Katie in a Cincinnati Reds hat. :)

Your Weekly Brew

Do you ever just love what you do?

Coming back from a couple weeks off, the first vacation we’ve taken in quite some time, has been invigorating. It’s such a blessing to realize that for all that can be hard about it, I (and Ryan, as well) really, truly enjoy my work and feel grateful to get up and do it each day.

Perhaps that’s one of the best parts of being an entrepreneur. Steve Jobs once said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”

Now, I don’t think that’s entirely true (when we’re committed to pursuing excellence in everything we do, we can do great work even in areas we aren’t passionate about it), but I do agree that our very best work bubbles up from a deep love for what we’re doing.

What about you? Are you doing work that you love? (Or perhaps, working your tush off to bring you closer to the goal of being able to do that?)

I hope that some of these links inspire you this coming week in whatever work you’re doing!
