Powerhouse Women

Apr 28, 2022

Kathryn Gordon is the co-author of the best-selling book Relationship GRIT and host of the Kathryn For Real podcast who is unapologetically stepping into the second act of her life. Kathryn committed to her role as the primary caregiver for her two children when they were young, but now that they’re entering adulthood, she’s following her passion of supporting women and helping couples strengthen their relationship. She openly shares about the challenges that she and her husband faced and how they’ve used the GRIT method to overcome them. We discuss what drives her to keep pushing forward even when she feels stuck, how she supports herself in unknown territories, and where her sense of confidence comes from. She also touches on exciting milestones that she’s recently hit in her career and what she has planned next. 


In this episode we talk about:

  • What GRIT stands for 
  • Why Kathryn and Jon chose to be totally authentic and honest in their book
  • Confronting the emotions that have come up from switching gears and putting her career at the forefront 
  • What Kathryn loves about podcasting 
  • The legacy that Kathryn wants to leave on this planet 
  • What Kathryn hopes readers will take away from her and Jon’s book
