338: Katie Quinn | An Expat Author Living in Italy on How Following Your Heart Will Ignite Your Soul
Manage episode 288040975 series 2652763
What do Italy, cheese, and YouTube have in common? They’re all a part of the dream life that Katie Quinn built for herself. Starting as an escort on Saturday Night Live — and no, not that kind of escort — Katie wound up in the green room of The Today Show, writing several books, and hosting a podcast and YouTube channel. Katie is truly living her dream life.
But how did she get here? When Katie realized she wasn’t excited by the so-called glamorous life of living in New York, she took a leap of faith. She followed her passions, which led her to Paris, England, Italy, and eventually Le Cordon Bleu — where she decided that you don’t have to be a trained chef to be passionate about making and eating mind-blowing food. Now she’s sharing that passion with the world, letting her quirky self shine and light up every space she steps into.
