Today is the first Q&A episode of the new iteration of the podcast, and I have to say that everyone who submitted questions via Instagram knocked it out of the park. Your questions were so thoughtful and piercing, and it has been a wonderful challenge, and also a joy, to put this episode together. Your questions were also so numerous that I've had to split them into two episodes - your more practical, efficient work-y questions will come another day, but today is all about mindset and the emotional experience of this thing.What I talk about in this episode:Letting the world crashWorking out the non-negotiablesSeeking direction from inside yourselfAccepting and testing the hypothesis that you might just be worthyFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

Hello! Today I am back with another co-host this week, and sharing the first chat with Cait. We had a big old catch up about what we're even doing with work at the moment, and something that seemed to be a big topic for us was experiencing a huge disappointment in work, and how that affects...well, everything. Cait is always so open and honest and today is no different. What we talk about in this episode: The pressure to feel gratefulFollowing your interestThinking short termStepping out of the career trajectoryBuilding change into your businessFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramCait on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Hello, welcome back to Grow With Soul, thank you for coming back, it is very much appreciated. It is just me again today and today's episode I think follows along nicely from last week's episode with Sasha, probably because this was all stewing and condensing in my mind since that conversation. We spoke a lot about the career ladders and following growth trajectories without even really interrogating them, and this episode is kinda the next step from that - what do you fill the vacuum with that's left behind when you stop chasing a growth you don't even want?What I talk about in this episode: What's left when you stop chasing the growthThe non-specific 'more' that we persueMy own 'growth' journeyFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

Hello! Today is the first episode of our new guest co-host episodes and I am beyond excited for you to listen to this conversation with my friend Sasha. To be honest, this episode has caused me a bit of a headache because we covered so many different and sprawling things that I had no idea what to name it, so you will just have to trust me that it is so much more than what's on the tin.What we talk about in this episodeRejecting the career ladderDoing the thing that keeps the lights on to do the thing that lights you upFinding identity outside of work based ambitionHow our family's relationships with work affect our own view of what work should look likeFinding comfort in a hyphenated work-lifeQuestioning the ‘should's'The difference between ‘not now' and ‘not this'For links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSasha on Instagram Subscribe to my newsletter!
Welcome back to a slightly revamped and refocused Grow With Soul. In the last episode I hinted at the changes that were to come, and you will have already seen the new artwork and heard the new jingle so you'll know that something is afoot. Today I thought that I'd expand a little more on what exactly it is I mean by “work in life”, as well as introduce you to my wonderful new guest co-hosts who you will start to hear from next week (we've already recorded a couple of the conversations and they are just wow).What I talk about in this episode: What I mean by work in lifeIntroducing my brand new Grow with Soul podcast co-hostsFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

Hello, and welcome to episode 116 of Grow with Soul. I was writing this episode sitting in the sun on the wall outside my house as the UK neared the end of a nearly 2 week heatwave. This episode should have reached you last week. If I was being 'good' and 'professional' there wouldn't have been a week gap in between episodes, I would have got it out on time. But instead I had a week off to enjoy the sun, enjoying the garden, racing through two books, deadheading the roses, and swimming in the sea every evening. What I talk about in this episode: The previous blocks on putting life above workPrioritising a life worth livingThe continuing direction of Grow with SoulFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Hello, and welcome to episode 115 of Grow with Soul. Today, I'm catching up with Kathryn Ho, a coach who helps untangle self doubt to bring creative dreams to life. When we first met Kathryn back in episode 28, she was just about to start her coach training, she was figuring out how to combine her coaching services with her art practice, and feeling like a little bit of a fraud. The last two years have seen Kathryn organically journey to find her flavour of coaching, understand and deal with her own self doubt and the self doubt of others, and learn to work intuitively and in tune with her body - all of which we discuss today.What we talk about in this episode: Finding the flavour of coachingApproaching niches in a different wayThe tools and self awareness that we can use to feel alignedRe-framing rules as optionsThe four faces of the protector, and how it relates to self criticismMaking decisions according to how it feels within your bodyFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on Instagram Kathryn on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

Hello and welcome to episode 115 of Grow With Soul. Almost everyone I know is in a kind of limbo right now. Whether it's where they're going to live, what they're going to do, who they're going to be, what their next steps are, there is this sense of not quite being the old them and also not quite being the new them either. That's how I feel right now too; I have restarted this episode three times already because I don't quite know what to say, being neither the old podcast host or the new podcast host. I have a sense that I am living in the shadow of the self I want to be: the girl who doesn't have a knee injury and who has fully stepped into the clarity of what she wants.Here's what I talk about in this episode:The limbo of living in the self of the person you used to beBurning out from thinking too much, as opposed to doing too muchDownscaling your goals in order to deal with both limbo and burnoutReframing the mental block of ‘starting again'The role of abundanceFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Hello and welcome to episode 113 of Grow with Soul. Today I am catching up with Sarah Fraser who, when we first met her back in episode 44, was just in the beginning phases of setting up her book editing services alongside her day job as a teacher. Over the last 2 years, Sarah has been on a hell of a journey, discovering that the big picture of book editing was actually completely draining her and was really heavy, and she's now pivoted into a completely different kind of business. We talk about the process of realising when something isn't right, how the 'shoulds' sneak up on us, the pressure of having a capital B Business, mixing identity with our work, and how Sarah managed to turn towards the joy. What we talk about in this episode: Backing yourself into an identity cornerOverriding our intuition because we think business 'should' be a struggleThe release in pressure that being experimental brings as opposed to meticulously planningSounding like yourself onlineFinding a flow for your energy, rather than your skillsFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on Instagram Sarah on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
On this episode I'm talking with Kayte Ferris of Simple and Season. I absolutely adore Kayte's attitude to business and marketing. She takes a really slow and purposeful approach to business that really focuses on being authentic and soulful and having integrity. She encourages us to lean into doing more of what we feel is right for us as business owners, rather than being completely overwhelmed with all the things that we feel like we should be doing. We talk about how important it is to learn to trust yourself and your intuition as a business owner in order to have a business that feels really authentic. We chat about how to avoid overthinking, and overcoming perfectionism and Kayte share some of her tips about staying flexible and leaving room to grow and shift priorities in your business. Kayte shares a lot of really wonderful advice so I really hope you enjoy listening to our chat.

Hello and welcome to episode 112 of Grow With Soul. When I did the last Q&A episode somebody sent me a DM with a question that I forgot to include in the show, but felt that we could probably devote an episode to it in itself. The question was about resistance: “How do you deal with resistance? When you know exactly what you need to do, but somehow you just can't do it. All the fears kick in and you freeze. Does it happen to you?”What I talk about: Recognising the symptoms of resistanceOpening up to your resistance and understanding the messageTrusting yourself and leaping into limboFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Hello and welcome to episode 111 of Grow with Soul. Today I'm catching up with Jane Lindsey of Snapdragon Life, who we first met back in episode 19 of the podcast. At that time Jane was at the very beginning of scaling back her six figure product business. 3 years later, she no longer has a team, and she is focused on her lifestyle membership. In this conversation we dig into so much juicy stuff! So we talk about money, setting up your business for creative freedom, truly aligning with your values, the challenge of descaling, and the mindset shift it takes to get away from this belief that we have to perpetually scale up. This was such a freeing and affirming conversation for me, and I really hope that you enjoy it too. What we talk about:Jane's difficult decision to close elements of the business that required team membersRejecting scaling for the sake of scalingThe importance of time vs exponential incomeSetting up your business for creative freedomCommitting to getting back out in the world following the pandemicFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on Instagram Jane on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Hello and welcome to episode 110 of Grow with Soul. As you all know from episode 106 on pivoting a few weeks ago, I am doing a lot behind the scenes at the moment to shift, well, pretty much everything in my business. The structure, the focus, and my own understanding of what my job role is and what I actually do. I've never done this before, but today is a short episode, sharing with you what I also shared with my newsletter subscribers last week, which is kind of an update on where my thoughts are at this moment in time, and a little bit of a pep talk too for anybody in the same sort of situation. Here's what I talk about: My thoughts on content creation whilst pivotingWhat I just can't talk (or write) about any moreThe bigger questions that are fuelling my excitement right nowAccepting what is true, and letting go of what doesn't feel rightWhere Grow with Soul is headed for the remainder of 2021For links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Hello and welcome to episode 109 of Grow with Soul. Today I am catching up with Kara Leigh Ford, who was the very first coaching episode on the podcast way back in July 2018. The last three years have seen Kara grow and develop her business model to include not just making her pottery, but also teaching her courses, hosting a membership and writing a book. It's also seen her come up against challenges in the emotional experience of running a business too. Today we talk about how and why the changes came about and what's been so positive about them, as well as Kara's experience of detaching her worth from her work, recovering from burnout, and creating healthier work habits. So, let's dig in.What we talk about:Feeling warmth towards our past selvesA recap on Kara's story, and how she's diversified her income since we last spokeHow the organic sharing of knowledge led to the creation of a course and a communityLeaning into the enjoyment of writing despite initial reservationsTackling burnout by separating your self worth from your workPrioritising restTrusting what you've builtFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on Instagram Kara on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Today I am answering a couple of your questions submitted on Instagram earlier this week. I’ve grouped together a couple of questions that all had a similar feel: knowing what you want and making it happen. So we are talking about manifesting, knowing if your goals are the right ones, picking yourself up after disappointment, choosing yourself and your dreams and dealing with challenges. There are some juicy questions in here, so let’s dive in.What I talk about in this episode:The role of privilege in manifestationGiving away your agency vs standing in your power and trusting yourselfBridging the gap between where we are now and where we want to be with medium sized SMART goalsIdentifying when the inability to get into the nitty gritty actions of your goals is resistanceBeing kind to yourself when a launch doesn't go the way you'd hopedPlaying whack-a-mole with the challenges of businessFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Hello and welcome to episode 107 of Grow With Soul, and welcome as well to a new short series on the podcast, which is going to be released every other episode over the next couple of months, called Coaching Catch Ups. So, what I'm doing is having conversations with previous Coaching Episode guests to see how they're getting on. Today I am joined by Jane Badu, founder of We Are Nomads, an online interiors store inspired by travel. Jane and I last spoke back in March 2019 on episode 33, at which point she had less than 100 Instagram followers, and was just starting out in her business. Today we discuss growth, take stock of how following her values continues to see her true, and how she's redefining the way she approaches social media. What we talk about: Where Jane was with We Are Nomads last time we spokeHow the pandemic and Brexit has diversified her brandThe growing strength of storytellingThe feelings and factors behind Instagram growthThe challenges of working aloneEmerging from survivor mindset and moving into CEO mindsetFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramJane on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Hello and welcome to episode 106 of Grow With Soul. Today I want to talk about pivoting, and specifically getting going with a pivot. A common theme of my conversations over these first few months of 2021 has been re-routing, pivoting, changing things up, shifting. It seems that the last year has, naturally, had many of us reassessing what we do, and not only wanting to make our businesses more stable but also wanting our lives to be different. I seem to be having less and less conversations about growth at all costs and more and more about how work slots into a more truthful and fulfilling life. And for many of us, these feelings naturally lead us to needing and wanting to pivot.Here's what I talk about in this episodeThe mindset that sets a pivot in motion, and what led to the beginning of mineRecognising what constitutes 'enough' to want to shift your businessManaging resistance when you navigate a pivotStructuring your pivotThe role of content within a successful pivotFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

But now, here's Kayte. Jenny Wheeler: Hello there Kayte and welcome to the show. It's so good to have you with us. Kayte Nunn: Thank you very much. It's lovely to be here. Introducing author Kayte Nunn Kayte Nunn - historical fiction author Jenny Wheeler: You have got a good back list that we will get into a little later, but the story we're particularly focusing on today is the latest one you've published, The Last Reunion. It's a dual timeline story split roughly between the present day and 1940s Burma, and it highlights the bravery of a little-known war-time women's unit in the Second World War. First of all, how did you come across this remarkable little slice of unknown history? Kayte Nunn: Actually, it's rather prosaic. On Google. I had never heard of them either until I started thinking about where I would set this novel. I knew I wanted to write about a friendship between a much younger woman and an older woman, and a friendship that doesn't start off terribly well. I also wanted to write about netsuke, which are these little Japanese toggles men used to wear on the sash of their kimono to hang little pouches from where they might keep their tobacco or their writing implements. The magic of Japanese netsuke They are now highly collectible, and years ago I was working in London as a temp in an art agency, art gallery. I was working in the Far Eastern Asian department and came across them. Magic netsuke have become valuable collectibles I was absolutely fascinated, so when I started to think about what I might write for my next book I knew I had that in the back of my head, and it was something I always wanted to write about somehow and include in a novel. Then I started thinking about where, and how I could incorporate that. For a while I thought maybe I should set it in Japan in the 17th century, and then I thought, what about in a time of war? The Second World War has been covered quite a lot in terms of the war ...
Hello and welcome to to episode 105 of Grow With Soul. Today we have our first returning guest to the show, Nicole Antoinette, who you may remember from episode 62. Given everything that has happened in the last year, Nicole and I wanted to talk about having change and flexibility at the core of your business, rather than it being something you have to do reactively. Today we talked about how to build around an approach rather than a thing, the three questions Nicole asks when she’s thinking of making a change, dealing with discomfort, and also how Nicole as introduced accessible pricing into her business.Here's what we talk about in this episode:An introduction to Nicole's work and online presenceBuilding flexibility into your business and normalising changeBeing open about your processThe questions to ask yourself when you feel the need for changeValuing small, incremental changesThe way in which Nicole implemented a sliding payment scale into her business and whyFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramNicole on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
Today I am sharing some thoughts around the work, the work, and the work. So these are the three different things that we think and we talk about when we talk about work. When there is a disjoint, a misalignment, or just a general demotivation, we tend to go looking for the big solution in the entirety of our work, instead of pinpointing which type of work is actually causing the problem. In this episode I'm going to describe the 3 types of work, how to identify which one is the problem, and also provide some ideas and solutions to each one. If you have a feeling that something's not quite right but you're not sure why, then this one is for you. Here's what I talk about in this episode: Recognising the 3 types of workIdentifying which type of work is the problem and going further than just demotivation and dissatisfactionWays to shift misalignments in the 3 types of workHow to decide whether to shift the content or the formatFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!
In today’s episode I am just thrilled to be talking Sasha Glasgow of Frank and Feel - writer, doubter, doer. Sasha is one of my favourite writers on Instagram and to be honest I just wanted an excuse to have a conversation with her - but what a conversation it was. We talk about how she started out with an intention to be a candle brand before heeding the call of the words, the empowerment of sharing the truth of your feelings, the impact vs the aesthetic of a journaling practice and our approaches to getting out of our brains and into our bodies.Here's what we talk about in this episode:Introduction to Sasha and how Frank and Feel unfurled from a creative callingCreating simply because you want to in this transactional worldHow easeful differs from easyTuning into our bodies as well as our mindsWorking with self doubt as opposed to overcoming itHow to turn inspiration inwards to find journal promptsFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSasha on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

Hello and welcome to Episode 102 of Grow with Soul. Today is a Q&A episode, with a focus on motivation, focus, and how things work out. Some of the questions I'm answering are ones that we didn't quite get to in the 100th episode, and they're slightly more personal ones, and there are some others which you submitted on Instagram, which are about being able to focus, and a lack of motivation.

100 episodes feels like a big deal for someone with trouble sticking to things and always coming up with new ideas, so I wanted to do something a little celebratory. Today, I am being interviewed by my good friend Lawrence Toye. As well as having the auspicious honour of being the first man on the podcast, Lawrence is a personal development coach who facilitates events and festivals, and also knows me from actual real life rather than the internet, so I knew he would do a great job. We had some questions submitted from Instagram and the newsletter which were all so deep and juicy and I’m so grateful for your investment in asking them - as you can guess we went off on tangents and didn’t get to every single question this time but I will circle back to any we missed in a later episode. In this episode, we talk about lessons learned from burnout, moments of knowing, what the future holds and how I’m prioritising the stuff of life.Before we get into it, I also wanted to tell you that I’ve put together a little commemorative ebook to celebrate today as a gift for you guys for sticking with me (or for joining if today is your first episode!). 100 Ways To Grow With Soul is a compilation of every guest’s answer to the final question, how do you grow with soul in your work and life, as well as some of my favourite quotes and a few musings and tips from me.

Warning: This episode contains a brief description of a dream that may be frightening to very young children. Kayte and Luke Abaffy live in a tiny house in a field in Ohio. He's a freelance journalist, she takes care of the kids, and they make documentaries together. They believe that Jesus' death and resurrection have saved them from their sin and made them righteous before God. They also follow the Old Testament Law. In this episode, Kayte and Luke talk to us about how they came to live according to the Law, how their lives look different now, and what they have seen of God in the process. This episode is an interesting discussion for anyone who may have wondered what value the Law has for Christians, and why many Christians don't live the way Jesus actually lived. These questions are also explored in more depth in Luke and Kayte's documentary "The Way" and in their subsequent documentary "The Christmas Question".
Today I want to talk about time. At the beginning of every year I do a survey, kindly filled out by my newsletter subscribers and some of my Instagram audience. This year I took all the responses to the question ‘what is your biggest challenge’, and I could see that the word used the most as a challenge was ‘time’ - it’s something we’re clearly all feeling acutely at the moment. This is why my first Make It Better workshop of this year is going to be all about time, and as I’m preparing for that workshop I thought that in this episode I would share some of the methods and resources that have been crucial in me changing my thinking about, and ultimately reclaiming, my time. Here's what I talk about in this episode:How outsourcing can free up time and mental space, and justifying that cost with how it makes your life feel betterBeing realistic about your time and how to approach planning itChanging your focus through radical prioritisationGoal focused workingThe focus of time in the first Make it Better workshopFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

Today I wanted to look at value. The truth is that ‘value’ is more multi-layered than it at first seems - there is the identifying it, the believing it, and then the applying of it. Understanding your value is not just important for your marketing going forward, but really knowing and believing in your value can also help to highlight the right direction for you and where you can best serve others with your business.Here's what I talk about in this episode:The theory behind value in marketingDifferent types of valueSeparating value and helpfulnessFinding your own value and how to use itFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

Hello and welcome to episode 96 of Grow With Soul. Today is a coaching episode with Agnes Becker of We Are Stardust. Craving less time in front of a computer and more mud in her life, science communicator Agnes started We Are Stardust as a way to bring to life the wonder of science and nature through prints and greetings cards. She now finds herself at a place where she wants to grow the business to be financially sustainable, but doesn’t want to be a greetings card factory - so is looking at how she can pivot. In this episode we talk about starting a pivot, understanding and using your purpose, narrowing down all the ideas and how to bring your audience along with you.Here's what we talk about in this episode:Agnes' story, and where her curiosity and subsequent career in science started, and how she expresses her fascination through artFinding the purpose in a pivotFocusing the many ideas you have when you're pivotingCommunicating your ideas as the transformation they provide to your audienceFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramAgnes on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

The first part of this episode is a recording of my Goals, Intentions and Word Of The Year blog post, unsurprisingly sharing what my goals are for this year and where my focus is - after sharing my End Of Year Thoughts like this I found be a really lovely and intimate way to share these kinds of thoughts. Then I’ll close out with a second part with a few thoughts on thinking about and approaching your planning for this year. Let’s dive in!Here's what I talk about in this episode:How global and personal uncertainty is influencing goal setting this yearMy word of the year for 2021 and 4 specific focuses within itMy 2021 goals and intentionsComing up with plans and goals based on how you want to feel in your work, as opposed to how it looksUsing a towards and within approach to set ‘being' goals alongside SMART goalsFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

For the last three years I have published an End Of Year Review. They have always been some of my favourite things to read and my favourite things to write – a chance to share everything that happened behind the scenes that made up the whole year. This year, however, is a little different. This year there are too many untied loose ends, too many still misplaced hopes and too much not processed that it just isn’t the right time to share my usual warts and all review. I did think, though, that I would share some end of year thoughts for 2020 that are arising as I reflect on the changes that I have been making – and I actually think this has worked out better than usual.Here's what I talk about in this episode:Reflections on my word of the year for 2020Moving away from marketing in my workWriting a book and how that's goingRealising I was prioritising comfort over joyThe relief of surrendering to a clean slate and a new lifeThe experience of moving from One-To-One to One-To-ManyYou can find the full blog post here.Kayte on Instagram
Today is a coaching episode with Katie Ford-Thomas of Fen & Field Magazine. Katie grew Fen & Field from an idea sparked from a documentary to a fully fledged print magazine in a year, and now, two issues in, finds herself at the point of needing to level up. Having grown an Instagram following and newsletter audience organically, she’s now feeling stuck of how to move it all forward and broaden the magazine’s reach. We talk about alternative ways to use Instagram, getting granular with customers and thinking strategically about them, and communicating your difference.Here's what I talk about in this episode:Background into KatieWhen you think about growth, think about why and where you want to grow rather than just growth itselfInstagram is a social network so the end goal is for it to be socialGo deeper into the elements on social media to reach out to those ideal clientsFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramKatie on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

Today we talk about how that experience has been emotionally and practically, talking about how to think about adding new things to what you do and working out how to talk to new customers. Here's what I talk about in this episode:Background into LucyYour customer is the same person at different life stagesThink about your customer’s life journey and how you can be an element of joy throughout it with your businessHow to balance the tasks for two different businessesFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Kayte on InstagramLucy on InstagramSubscribe to my newsletter!

Today I’m talking with Cait Flanders, the author of The Year of Less and the new book, Adventures in Opting Out.

Today I want to talk about launching, whether it’s a new service, digital product, or physical product. I know there are many podcast episodes and resources out there about launching with all the tips and tricks about how to have a massively successful launch. But I know that they can feel a little out of reach or out of touch. I’ve listened to podcasts where someone talks through the step by step of their launch by laying out what each member of their team did or bringing in multiple six figures from one launch, which was miles away from my own goals just not to feel applicable. Today, I wanted to share my lessons of what worked from a small launch that went well.Here's what I talk about in this episode:All course sales have followed the same pattern: a few small sales in the beginning and middle and a very large influx right at the endThe Trail sold out and relatively easily so – the structure of the program was very different from anything else I had done before creating different buying behavior in addition to launch methodsWhat I didn’t do during the launchWhat I did doWhat workedFor links and resources discussed in the show, see the full show notes.Subscribe to my newsletter!Kayte on Instagram
