Sophisticated Rebels are those that have created a life they want to live by breaking the rules and living by their own terms. Each guest has a unique story to tell and lesson to teach. The host Kasten Spethmann (a life long entrepreneur), has lived a very non-traditional life. She and her guests dive into how it feels to rebel against societal norms, how to live an unapologetic life and how thrive after monumental setbacks. The goal is to help listeners in similar situations not feel alone as well as provide tactical tools to achieving fulfillment in life and business.

In this episode we have switched things up a bit... this time someone is interviewing me. I've had a lot of people mention that they'd like to know more about me and my background. It's awkward and a little cheesy to sit down and record ones self talking about themselves so I thought I would share this interview someone did of me.
The interview was done in Sept of 2018 by a gentleman named Mark Stowers who has an online radio show. It was a lot of fun and we dive into some cool topics (mostly about life as an entrepreneur). Give it a listen and let me know what you think.
If you have someone you think I should interview for the Sophisticated Rebels podcast, please shoot me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am always looking for more great sophisticated rebels to have on to share their stories and wisdom.

I want listeners to know what is feels like, looks like and sounds like to work with someone that never makes you feel objectified or less valuable simply because you are female.
