Hey there! Welcome to the

Prosperous Empath Podcast by Catherine Wood, MCC

…Where we’re on a mission to bring back empathy into the world of business.

If you are committed to joyful living and running a conscious business, but amassing wealth while doing so – proving that you can have both in a society that tells you that you can’t - then you are in the right place!

That’s right - being brilliant, big-hearted, and wealthy beyond measure don’t have to be at odds with each other.

Meet your host

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.
