Meet Katie Longmyer currently living in New York City. Katie is a musician and creative. This story was submitted in collaboration with ENVSN.
What did you study in school and why?
I was a music major – Cello specifically. My life has been dedicated to magic of where music, creativity and community meet since Day 1.
What is your job/career?
I’m the Founder + CEO of Good Peoples, a platform designed to create, amplify and cultivate projects and partnerships rooted in culture. My favorite description of my job is: My profession is an art form of mysticism, creativity, quantum physics, law of attraction, motivation and love.
What is a challenge you have faced or currently face and how are you overcoming it?
Putting as much effort into myself as I do into my work is one of the hardest things for me to tackle. I’ve made a commitment to myself to carve out personal time every morning. As a result there is a domino effect of good self-care including going to bed earlier, partying a little less, and taking that time to work out or reflect which makes me better throughout the day. If I can do it for my work, I can do it for myself. Making that commitment to myself definitely pushes me into better work/life balance.
What does it mean for you to be powerful?
I feel the most powerful when I can give my power away, when I am so comfortable and strong in where I sit in my power I do not need the shine, the last word, the cash, etc. I can come from a place of abundance and not scarcity.
Do you have a favorite product or item you love that makes you feel great? It can be clothing, soap, socks, or anything.
My very first layer of every day – my DSTM lingerie.
What are your passions, hobbies, interests?
Music, traveling and food (cooking it and eating it!). I love enjoying creativity in tactile ways!
