E24: Kat Norton: Miss Excel

When describing Excel, the first adjective to come to mind probably isn’t fun, but Kat Norton might just change people’s minds.

Kat Norton, also known as Ms. Excel, is truly one of a kind. Somehow, she’s made Excel tips and tricks incredibly engaging and accessible through social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram. On this week’s episode of Yuptown, Kat and I discuss her career journey and founding story of Ms. Excel. Plus, she’ll share how removing barriers and limiting beliefs can help anyone achieve personal and professional goals.

E11: Sam Cooper: Mt. Joy

If you’re like me, or, I think I can safely say any other person in the working world, you’ve day dreamed about quitting your job to move to a new city or pursue an ambitious dream.

Sam Cooper was brave enough to do just that when he quit his job as a lawyer, moved from Philadelphia to LA, and pursued a new career entirely. The result was a band called Mt. Joy, and a hit single that received over a million downloads within its first month of release.

With what’s been called a “fast and furious 21st-century success story,” Mt. Joy has since exploded in popularity, with a monthly listener count now totaling over 2 million on Spotify.

On this week’s episode, I had the honor of speaking with Sam about his major career transition, what it was like to build a brand for a band, and Sam’s Spotify Wrapped playlist!
