The 4 Structures of Becoming a Prosperous Empath

The 4 Structures of Becoming a Prosperous Empath

Welcome to our very first episode of The Prosperous Empath Podcast. I am so excited to be here with you today, and a little unnerved too, if I’m being honest. As an empath, introvert and highly sensitive person, I am much more comfortable on the listening end of a conversation, getting to be the one who asks questions and offers insights and reflections. However, I’ve had countless clients tell me over the years that I needed to start a podcast, and not only does the timing feel right, but auspicious. More on that in the episode! Also, on the inaugural episode of the show, I thought I would share the four structures that I believe every prosperous empath must have to achieve the success they are craving. I’m so happy and honored that you’re here, and with that, let’s go!

The Possibilities of Cycle Tracking for Your Business and Life with Laura Kline-Taylor


In a previous episode of the podcast I shared how it took 37 rejections before I finally landed my first client. That first client?

The 12 Days of Conscious Holidays

The 12 Days of Conscious Holidays


The inspiration for today’s episode, and actually, for the next couple of episodes resulted from a conversation that I overheard at a bar over the weekend. In short, another patron said this about Thanksgiving: “It was rough, I went to Gloucester, Hamilton and then Rockport, but there were no fights, so that was a plus.”

On the opposite hand, I’m someone who really does love this season, and one thing I can appreciate about the holidays is that it is a time of a lot of emotions, a lot of pressure, and a lot of expectations. Sometimes when there can be that hype and anticipation, judgment, preconceived notion of how things are going to go, it just can create a lot of pressure and human beings don’t typically like pressure. As you may know, one of the ways we often resist pressure is avoidance. So for today’s episode, I want to share with you a nod to the 12 days of Christmas, the 12 days of conscious holiday planning as a way to practice doing something different and as a way to practice bringing more intentionality to your holidays to create the experience that you want to have.

The Anatomy of Goal Setting for the Prosperous Empath

The Anatomy of Goal Setting for the Prosperous Empath


Hello, hello, and welcome back to another episode of the podcast. I am looking forward today to sharing with you about goal setting, and before you disconnect and let your eyes glaze over, I want you to know that I have a very unique relationship to project planning and goal setting. I’ve come to realize that it’s something that I do a bit different from other folks, and I’m also highly practiced in fulfilling on the goals that I set, and staying in relationship with the goals that I set and being empowered by the goals that I set –  which are all very unique statements to make, and statements that I often find many struggle with. So we’re going to talk about the anatomy of goal setting, why they’re important, how they are really the heart and soul of what coaching is all about, and I’m going to share with you a structure that has supported me in setting my goals over the years.

My Word for 2023

My Word for 2023


Today’s episode is about one of my traditions that I get to do every year – choosing my word of the year. Having a word of the year has consistently served as an empowering practice for grounding and calling in a new experience or way of being that I want to cultivate in the next year. Rather than making New Year’s resolutions which are often clouded in changing something about ourselves we don’t like and focusing on ‘doing’, a word of the year focuses on ‘being.’ Your word of the year will help you create a new, distinct experience of life. Listen in to hear how to choose your own word of the year to make 2023 one of your best years yet.

Hey hey, I'm Catherine Wood and I believe that another way of living is possible

The thing I’m most passionate about? Holistic success. This looks like owning your desires, cultivating a closer (and kinder!) relationship with yourself, and designing a life and business that honors your truth.

As a Master Certified Coach, I help bold, brilliant, and big-hearted leaders in business scale to multiple six and seven figures, while leading a joyfully aligned life!

As an empath, introvert and HSP, I not only understand but celebrate the gift of being a deep thinker and processor.  And, as a coach - who is no stranger to walking the talk - I hold you accountable to your goals when your gifts get in your way of taking action.

When it comes to running a business, I share candidly what I know from running two successful businesses over the past decade including my coaching business and a transformational retreat business with curated experiences hosted in the Dominican Republic and India.

Before becoming a coach, I was a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer, a small grants manager for a USAID-funded sustainable tourism project in the Dominican Republic, and later a Senior Economist with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

This year, I moved home to Boston after well over a decade in the Washington DC area alongside my former fellow economist cubemate and now husband Parth, and our fur babies Luna and Molly.
