Play • 1 hr 13 min

Caterina Rando is a best selling author, sought after speaker, and an extraordinary women’s business mentor who passionately serves women leaders on a mission. Her over 25 years of educating and empowering audiences and groups makes her truly masterful at providing a ton of value. She shows women how to be loud and proud about the value they bring in order to serve more people and make their businesses thrive. She’s a published author with books including Learn to Think Differently which was released in more than 13 countries and multiple languages. A Women’s Guide to Starting a Giving Circle, and her latest book  The ABC’s of Public Speaking which quickly hit number one in 4 Amazon Best Seller categories. Caterina is an absolute powerhouse and probably one of the most joyous uplifting people you can meet.     


In this episode, Caterina and I discuss:

  • Shifting your self-perception mindset, dealing with setbacks, life obstacles, and managing disappointment.
  • Not isolating yourself. Build a community or be a part of a community that supports you. Make an effort to consciously connect and only to take and accept feedback from trusted sources and to trust yourself. 
  • Not letting typical expectations and things hold you back. Embracing the fear, not worryng about what other people think, and letting go of thoughts of perfection.
  • Creating Giving Circles: providing education and support and improving the lives of girls and women around the world. 


Key Takeaways:

  • Caterina’s favorite self-care practice is in the power of action. Getting up and making things happen instead of wallowing and making the conscious decision to be positive in life.
  • Caterina’s advice for women in their 20’s is that everything is going to work out, stop worrying so much. 
  • Caterina’s view on developing your own personal power and courage is to feel the fear and do it anyway. Navigate through fear by taking action. Action is the antidote to fear. Be proactive vs reactive when it’s something you want to do but are afraid to.



"I want every woman to know that she matters, she has massive value to bring, that her voice matters." —  Caterina Rando
