Kathleen Shannon co-owns Braid Creative & Consulting where she does branding and business visioning for creative entrepreneurs, small businesses, and organizations who are wanting to blend more of who they are into the work they do. You might also know her as the co-host from the Being Boss Podcast where she dishes out advice and insights on mindset, habits, routines, and boundaries for creatives who want to own who they are and make money doing what they love in work and life.


  • Kathleen’s self-care and healthcare routines (and the difference between the two)
  • Bringing intention into cooking
  • Makeup and beauty as a form of self-care
  • DIY natural facial products
  • Self-care as a mother and integrating your children into your self-care
  • Beating yourself up over self-care you “should” do
  • Giving yourself permission to lean into a passion project or self-care without it being perfect
