Our Story
Four years ago, Jess was on Kate’s podcast Women Work and Worth talking about doing good and doing well. Little did they know, this choice was one that so many women feel is a tug-of-war. We’ve programmed to believe that our career is a choice between passion and paycheck. 
Remember when you were a kid and you were asked what you wanted to be when you grew up? 
Maybe you said an artist, or a zookeeper, or an acrobat or a dog trainer. Kate wanted to be a Talk Show Host and Jess wanted to be an astronaut or an author 😂 (the astronaut is off the table but Talk Show Host and author are in progress!). But as kids, our visions of our career were always colorful, meaningful, and bright. 

But as we get older and we walk through life, we become swayed with seeking a career that's practical, traditional or pays the bills. We start to feel like our dreams and career are two separate things. 
And that's where we're wrong.
We can create a life that's meaningful AND pays the bills. We don't have to choose between making a living and making a difference. The Social Startup will teach you how to launch a company that can satisfy your dreams of making your mark but also making your financial goals. 
Introducing Your Hosts, Kate and Jess
Hi, we're Kate Gremillion and Jess Ekstrom, two impact-focused entrepreneurs who have built six and seven figure businesses in our twenties. Kate is the founder of Work Well with Kate where she gives women tools to streamline their businesses so they can be more profitable and less busy (oh- and she has a killer podcast). Jess is the founder of Headbands of Hope, a company that gives headbands to kids with cancer (she also travels the world as a professional speaker).

Meet Jess
Jess is the founder of Headbands of Hope, a company that gives headbands to kids with cancer (she also travels the world as a professional speaker).
We've both built a life we're proud of by checking these three boxes:

- Making an impact
- Making an income
- Making time to do what they love

We’re not here to tell you that you can’t do this yourself, because you can. You can do anything you want. But, we’re here to help you spend a lot less time and money than we did trying to do this on our own. We both made tens of thousands of dollars or mistakes (which you’ll hear in the webinar!) and spent so much time going down rabbit holes with dead ends. We want you to launch faster, with higher profit margins, less errors, and deeper impact. 
TL;DR
Our goal with The Social Startup™ is to arm amazing women to find a hybrid of impact, income and freedom. We want to support women who believe in a better tomorrow but also want to get paid to create it
