Kathryn is an amazing woman with a great personal brand story. In all my travels as a speaker and panelist, Kathryn struck me as one of the most genuine and open people about her own story of success and business aspirations. That is a potent combination. She is one sharp, interesting and amazing mom entrepreneur. Expect to see her grab headlines and get wrapped up in more interesting business tentacles in the future.
