"Heller pivots effortlessly from encouraging readers to accept “miraculous changes,” find their bliss, and examine their authentic selves to practical tips for building mass marketing email distribution lists and identifying web-based social media and teaching portals that allow small-business owners to capture additional revenue...both approachable and incisive." ―
Booklist

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Cathy Heller is a fire hose of inspiration. She’s the host of the popular podcast Don’t Keep Your Day Job, which was given the #1 spot on iTunes recommend list of shows for the New Year in 2018 and 2019.

Each week Cathy encourages thousands and thousands of listeners to find more purpose in their life and get paid to do what they love full time. She started out as a singer songwriter and first found success licensing her music to TV, Film and Ads. Quickly she became a stand out in her field and was featured in magazines like Billboard, Variety and the LA Weekly.

After making a multi six figure living with her music, Cathy started a music agency and then she began teaching other artists to grow their own careers.

Two weeks after her third daughter was born, she started her top ranked podcast. Cathy’s show has been featured in HuffPost, the NY Times and Inc Magazine’s “top 9 podcasts” and has been downloaded over 5 million times. She’s been featured several times by Apple themselves and the fans are resonating with how genuine she is.

Throughout the show, she has interviewed creative entrepreneurs like actress Jenna Fischer, popular blogger Seth Godin, designer Jonathan Adler, make up artist Bobbi Brown, former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, fashionista Tamara Mellon, novelist Emily Giffin, and Gretchen Rubin to name a few.

When she’s not teaching or interviewing amazing guests for her podcast, you can find Cathy playing with her three little girls, writing her book, songwriting for tv shows and commercials, or enjoying a moment with friends.

Cathy often says “purpose is the opposite of depression” and she is truly lifting others to be the happiest version of themselves.

I literally had to pause my reading every few pages to write down all the ideas that came up! 💡

It also eases the loneliness that can come with setting up a business thanks to the inspiring stories.

Fun fact: this was a Christmas present from my mom so this is me logged in to her account because I just HAD to share how life-changing this book is! 👏
