The Kate & Mike Show: Life, Love, and Business


Kate Northrup & Mike Watts are entrepreneurs, parents, and partners in love, life, and business. They believe in making a life, not just a living and have a lifestyle that reflects that. They share their tips and strategies that have allowed them to build a high 6-figure online business that they grow from their home in Maine, working part time while raising their daughter. Their show is a deep dive into what makes life worth living and how to design your business and life around that. From business strategy to in-depth interviews, metaphysics, spirituality, mindset, and personal development, Kate & Mike will show you how to make the most out of your life, love, and business.


Episode 28: Raising Mike Watts: An Interview With Bill and Michele  

Today’s episode is extra special as we welcome Mike’s parents, Bill and Michele Watts, to the podcast. Having this discussion is something Mike has always wanted to do, and in it we discuss how his parents themselves were raised, the approach they took to parenting Mike and his siblings (the good and the bad times), and what it’s like for them to be grandparents now. They share their thoughts on their own careers, retirement, death and a whole lot more in this one. The main reason we wanted to do this podcast with the Watts is to gain perspective now, because you never know what the future will hold. We also hope it encourages you to have similar discussions with your own loved ones before it’s too late.
