    The part where you share the “ladder strategy” to feature influencers is insightful. To go to people you know and then work your way up. Also love the answer to what it means to be rich to her: “Being able to spend your days doing what makes you fulfilled”.

    • Katherine is SOOOO smart and savvy! Every time I talk to her I learn something new. Thank you so much for listening Fabian!
