On this episode of Making Elephants Fly, Terry sits down with Cathy Heller. 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 & 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 Forbes, Entrepreneur Magazine, HuffPost, the NY Times, and Inc Magazine’s “top 9 podcasts”, and has over 13 million downloads. She’s been featured several times by Apple themselves and the fans are resonating with how genuine she is. Cathy’s book Don’t Keep Your Day Job was released in November 2019 with Macmillan. It’s filled with inspirational stories from people within her own tribe who have decided to take control of their life’s journey. She is a phenomenal coach for creative entrepreneurs and she’s helping people everywhere find a deeper sense of purpose and add their gifts to the world. 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.
