You’re “the boss” at work, at home, with everyone (even down to your pets). You talk and people listen and act--but does that really make you the boss of your own life? Kathleen Shannon, creative and entrepreneur mastermind, reveals what being “The Boss” actually means and how to get to a place of self-realization.

Kathleen’s the co-founder of Braid Creative, a branding agency that specializes in helping creatives, small businesses, and organizations blend more of who they are into the work that they do. She’s also the co-host of the Being Boss podcast and co-authored the Being Boss book with Emily Thompson which is being released today. Being Boss is where she digs into the mindset, the habits, routines, and boundaries that help creatives be more “boss.”
