As an Author, Entrepreneur and Mom, Mary Kathryn Johnson has created online success since 2003. A fall while pregnant with her second son landed her with two broken legs, her first book, and her first business. Mary is now using that 13 years of roller coaster family and business success to help parents uncover their entrepreneurial identity so they can create family freedom, and she is now building her fourth business helping health and beauty professionals do the same.
Before we dive into our interview, I wanted to tell you about how mary kathryn and I connected. I first heard Mary Kathyn on a podcast by one of my mentors and i knew I had to get her on the show. She’s a very successful entrepreneur that has taken her artistic abilities and has created several businesses which is something I wanted all of you to hear more about – the possibility of where the arts can take your child.
My daughters are now 10 and 13 and they never speak about going to work for someone else and are always envisioning what their own businesses would like. Mary Kathryn has modeled this entrepreneurial lifestyle with her own sons and I wanted to have her share her amazing arts journey with you.
