The call-in podcast show covering the hard & heart issues of running a creative business. Hi, I'm your host, Katie O. Selvidge. I'm the founder of Cottage Hill™ and Business Editor™ to discerning creatives. I help overwhelmed entrepreneurs simplify their business so they can move on to greater things—in work & life. This podcast was founded on the idea that achieving success as a creative business owner looks different for each person. There is no one way. There are some key best practices and growth hacks that you will find in my episodes. But you have to be disciplined and discerning to figure out what is the best path for you. And I’m here to help you figure that out. It’s not about doing more. And it’s not about doing less. It’s about doing well.

Never Not Valuable
I’ve been through 1:1 sessions and Katie’s program, Editor’s Course, and everything she has to share is valuable- insanely valuable. I struggle with discerning what’s important and needed, and Katie helped me refine it all- even in my personal life. This podcast is like having a mini-Katie on my shoulder bringing me back to my true center!
Love Katie’s Podcast!!
This is one of my favorite podcasts ever. Every episode is filled with inspiration and actionable steps to help you in your unique journey as a business owner. Always looking forward to the next one.
A fresh perspective!
I was SO excited when I heard Katie was launching a Podcast. I listen to her Lives on Instagram and I always walk away thinking - "Oh wow.. I've never thought about it like that." Katie takes things that you maybe already know or are questioning and just really clarifies it. She talks about things that aren't being talked about and/or she's not afraid to put her honest opinion on "popular" trends. Listening to someone "go against the grain" so to speak, in this creative industry is so refreshing. I love tuning in for some unique content that is going to help me create a realistic and purposeful business and life.
