About Being Boss

At Being Boss, we’re on a mission to help creatives, business owners, and entrepreneurs take control of their work + live life on their own terms.

Being Boss began as a podcast in 2015 by self-proclaimed “business besties” Kathleen Shannon and Emily Thompson, and was taken over by Emily in 2020. The top-ranked, award winning business podcast boasting over 11 million downloads serves a vast global audience of creative business owners through conversations about what it takes to launch, grow, and run a business, and through interviews with experts including Brené Brown, Marie Forleo, Melissa Urban of The Whole 30, Jasmine Star, Lisa Congdon, Ramit Sethi, and more.

In 2018, Being Boss: Take Control of Your Work and Live Life on Your Own Terms by co-founders Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon was published by Running Press.
