Ep. 4: Katt Stearns, Social Media Strategist

Katt Stearns Shares Her 3 SECRETS to SUCCESS!

My goal with POD Sisters is to share stories, inspirational lessons, life affirmations, advice on balancing family, friends and business. So many women manage it all so well, and they have valuable information which can help and motivate others. The sisterhood we all belong to is incredibly powerful, truthful, honest and supportive.

I want to celebrate different women, and the myriad of roles, jobs, dreams, life paths and journeys.

On EPISODE 4, I chat with Katt Stearns, owner of Katt Stearns Consulting and one of the team behind We Make Stuff Happen.

Katt was nominated for the BC Small Business Emerging Entrepreneur in 2014, and winner of the Digital Marketer of the Year in 2015. She held positions in corporate and government, and left those worlds behind to pursue her dream of owning her own business.

Katt shares how she started out in the music business, learning as she went. She has some fantastic advice for any business person or entrepreneur, and lets us in on her 3 SECRETS TO SUCCESS!

Check out Katt’s SOCIAL MEDIA 101 page

Social media marketing can be a powerful tool to help any business grow their sales, increase brand exposure and build relationships with customers. What many businesses don’t realize is that just opening up a Facebook account and posting random links on your page once a week won’t help your business grow. Social media should be incorporated into your other marketing strategies, customer relations, PR and day-to-day operations. So to help you get started we’ve provided you with some helpful resources.

POD Sisters Episode 2: Pregnancy & Publishing with “It’s Really 10 Months”

In this 3rd episode, we meet the creative and funny geniuses behind the two books entitled, “It’s Really 10 Months: Delivering the Truth About the Glow of Pregnancy and Other Blatant Lies” and  “It’s Really 10 Months Special Delivery: A Collection of Stories from Girth to Birth.” (links are to Amazon.ca — find them also on Amazon.com)

Meet Kim Schenkelberg, Celeste Snodgrass, and Natalie Guenther (in THAT order in the image below).  I was honoured to be one of the chosen contributors to Special Delivery and it was a wonderful experience working with this talented team.


The books have won awards and media praise: Mom’s Choice Award Winner, and named one of the Best Books to Read When You’re Expecting by Pregnant Chicken, and a Next Generation Indie Book Awards-finalist for best cover design.

This episode is to celebrate all things labour (or labor for you south-of-the-border fans) and pregnancy . . . AND self-publishing . . . these ladies are experts in all these things.

If any of you out there are expecting, or know someone who is, please enjoy this podcast – it’s especially for you . . . share it with others who are expecting . . . and anyone you know who might be on the self-publish journey. I’ll ask the ladies about their successes and publishing pitfalls, so we can learn from them.
