Launching a Brand and Living the Laptop Lifestyle with Kira Hyde

Grab your free Procrasti-proof your week eBook -->

Trading long commutes, boring meetings, and awkward small-talk for the ‘laptop lifestyle’ is a dream for many aspiring entrepreneurs. After all, who doesn’t want to take control of their time, their freedom and wear their fave pair of sweatpants to work?

Kira Hyde is a tea drinking, lipstick wearing, brand strategist and creative director. She is a fiery redhead and the mastermind behind KH Studio, a creative studio where she empowers biz owners and entrepreneurs to launch their next step, smash their goals, and level up their income.

In this episode of the ‘Before you’re ready’ series, Kira and I chat about her work, how she started a business at such a young age, why it’s okay to start before you’re ready, and so much more!

We chatted about:

  • How Kira helps biz owners up-level and create the business of their dreams
  • Why ‘being young’ shouldn’t get in the way of achieving your goals
  • How to break through fears and self-doubt
  • How Kira started her successful business at such a young age
  • The value of taking calculated risks and believing in yourself
  • Why you shouldn’t get bogged down by regrets and past mistakes
  • Kira talks about her passion project - ‘The Launch Gals’
  • How to know it’s time to invest in professional branding
  • What the ‘laptop lifestyle’ means to Kira
  • Tips to find the right balance between work and travel
  • Kira’s best advice for launching your business (and quit procrastinating!)

‘A Girl in Progress’ is available as a podcast on our website and as a video interview series on our YouTube channel – so make sure to subscribe to both to keep up with new episodes!
