Over the past six months, I’ve been pouring my heart and soul into a new project, and it’s finally here! As someone who is passionate about financial literacy and sharing the stories behind emerging small businesses, I was craving the opportunity to share these two things on another platform. I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my podcast! Welcome to The C Suite with Catherine!

I am passionate about financial literacy for small business owners. However, I know how frustrating it can be for entrepreneurs who feel like they don’t have a roadmap to success when it comes to learning about finances in business.
After graduating in 2011 with a degree in political science and writing, I took an internship at W Magazine. I stayed in the magazine world for a number of years before launching Plan de Ville, my first company, which is an e-commerce site for emerging luxury fashion designers.
I quickly learned that I had a knack for entrepreneurship, but knew I was lacking the financial skills necessary to forge ahead. So I went back to school and earned my MBA from Columbia business school in 2019.
Over the past two years I have been building a new financial literacy company, Cash Flow for Creatives, which is the inspiration behind this podcast. It is designed to empower small business owners with financial tools that are designed for them.
Each episode of this podcast will feature one finance term that is explained through career stories in conversation with friends.
Join me so as we dive into the highly personal stories that bring finance to life.
In this season of the C Suite with Catherine, we’ll hear about:
