"How do I want to live my life so I can have the balance I really look for?"
Buckle up, friends! This episode is going to cover a lot of ground!
Today's guest, Kati Haynes, takes us on quite a journey: from a childhood in the 'Gunks, to the Army, to the darkness of a mental health crisis, to entrepreneurship, to mountain peaks both locally and afar. In between Courtney and Kati also discuss the joys and quirks of dog ownership, hiking gear, and their shared love of trivia nights at Rough Cut Brewing in Kerhonkson NY!
Kati has an amazing story and she tells it with wisdom, insight, and good humor. We are so delighted to she agreed to be on the show and to share this parts of herself with our audience.
This episode does touch on themes of mental health and abortion. If these topics are challenging for you, feel free to sit this one out, and we'll see you next week!
About our guest:
An entrepreneur at heart, Kati Haynes owns Haynes Marketing + Media, a full-service marketing agency based in Kingston, NY.
From shining boots for an extra buck in the Army to building a 6-figure marketing agency in less than two years, she is the definition of work ethic. That work ethic extends beyond that which brings home the bacon. She puts her heart into everything she does.
Kati spends as much of her free time as possible in the woods. Growing up in New Paltz, she explored the Shawangunks throughout her life. She’s climbed a 14,000+ foot mountain in California, hiked to the top of Katahdin on the hottest day in July, and summited most of the highest mountains in the Catskills.
When she’s not working or traipsing through the woods, you’ll often see her walking her dogs, cooking a new recipe, or hosting an occasional photography walk with her group – Upstate Photo Community.
She’s always working toward a better future – for herself and everyone around her.
