Catherine Morgan Joined the Teaching Faculty of Transformation TV

I am excited to share that I have joined the teaching faculty of Transformation TV, which is focused on becoming the Netflix for video content about transformation and change.

The next 4-6 weeks will be focused on creating my teaching segment that will air for three months on the platform.

While there are many competent professionals in the career transition space, I am a little different in that I look at the whole person, not just the professional.

Clients frequently say that our work created a complete shift in their professional and personal life – clarity, confidence, focus, etc. I’m looking forward to being able to reach a global audience through Transformation TV.

A Rant on the Gig Economy and Working Yourself to Death

Often, I am very grateful to Carol Roth for letting me post a rant on her award-winning blog. Two clients sent me the same article, and it made my blood boil both times I looked at it.

We keep hearing about the “gig economy” – but the definition of what that actually is can be fluid, to say the least.

I bring some sanity to an insane world and discuss why being a commodity isn’t sustainable, and how people can work themselves to death in any situation (corporate or entrepreneur).

3 Speaking Gigs in 7 Days Is a Bit Much

I was one tired speaker after this busy week of three speaking gigs within one week. Yikes!

Webinar with MBO Partners – Starting a Solo Consulting Business

Oh my goodness, this is a topic near and dear to my heart. I thoroughly enjoy working with solo consultants, helping them grow practices doing work that they love with clients they love to work with.

It was a blast to do this webinar with MBO Partners, a company that provides back-office support to consultants.

The first time I gave this presentation several years ago I called it “Off the Cliff: Is There a Net?” Here’s the presentation deck:
