The Fulfilling Life Interviews — Kate Swoboda

January 31, 2013 4 Comments

Kate Swoboda, also known around the internet as Kate Courageous, is today’s guest on The Fulfilling Life.

Kate has incredible experience as a life coach, writer and retreat leader, and she is one of my professional role models. She is super smart and wise in a very real, humble and down to earth way. The best part is she is also hilarious and so easy to talk to.

Kate eloquently shares how fulfillment all boils down to one word for her. Curious what that word could be? Watch the interview and find out.

Kate shared so much in this interview. I was particularly touched by what she shared about the ease with which she meets crying. I love this idea of letting feelings flow and can’t help but believe that letting the tears fall more easily also means the joys shine much brighter too.

My favorite quote from Kate came near the very end of the video when she summed up a bit of her own journey to finding fulfillment with these words:

I’ve made a really committed choice to work with what comes up in a very specific way.

I think it’s quite obvious that Kate not only teaches others to live courageous lives, but she is also living her life with courage every day.

Thank you Kate, for sharing your time and wisdom with all of us.

    Great interview Kelly! YOu look so pretty! Enjoyed learning more about Kate and bringing in the idea of integrity. It’s one of my values and yet I’m not sure I use it as a compass for me as far as everyday fulfillment.

    Thanks so much Becky! Integrity is a powerful word. I’m learning to take some of what Kate teaches and bring it into my life as a guiding force too.
