42. Living A Life Of Yes With Saya Hillman


Get ready for an epic episode! This week, Karen and Katie welcome Saya (pronounced Sigh-A) Hillman, a.k.a. ‘The Accessible Oprah,’ for a far-reaching and very real conversation about living what Saya calls ‘A Life Of Yes.’ As founder and CEO of Mac & Cheese Productions, a Chicago-based lifestyle business that creates events (and many other things) for its clients, Saya explains how getting fired in 2004 was one of the best things that could have happened to her.

Since then, she’s built a thriving business and is dedicated to living life on her terms. In today’s conversation, Saya suggests writing bulleted lists of what you want, what you don’t want, who you are, and what you want to become. And to keep writing and not to self-censor!

There are SO MANY nuggets of wisdom that you may want to listen a second time.

Enjoy and thanks for listening. We will be taking a break and will be back with regularly scheduled programming on Monday, June 14th.

Happy Summer!
