“I will choose to find the joy in the journey that God has set before me.”

The other day a friend asked me why I sounded so happy, given the pandemic isolation.

Honestly, I have had my low points, especially in the beginning of all this.

The work that I was enjoying so much was halted, which also halted my income.

To not work and make my own money is not in my DNA.

But either is focusing on what is not in my control.

First and foremost, I have faith and trust that God will show me the way

I have chosen to use this time to learn new skills, to get myself organized, to continue nurturing relationships and opportunities that will help me come out of this better than when I went in.

That’s why I started a YouTube series that I call Conversations with Catherine.

They are conversations with people behind the positivity and kindness happening in our community right now.

They are chats with experts offering suggestions for how to find faith, clarity, productivity and inspiration in challenging times.

One of those people is Susan Sly.

She is the CEO and Founder of Step Into Your Power Inc.

She knows what it’s like to suffer a setback, but to believe enough in herself and her faith to put in the work, and reclaim personal and professional success.

In a new episode of Conversations with Catherine,


I chat with Susan about how she went from success to becoming ill, then homeless, to success again as a self-made multimillionaire.

She is passionate about empowering women and has some sage advice for how to approach this temporary time of isolation as an opportunity to do incredible things in our lives.

She talks about using this time to plant the seeds of abundance that will grow from this challenge.

In her words, “In the face of challenge, we can give up or we can get better.”

I choose joy – because I choose – to get better.
