“You have to be your own champion because no one else is going to do it” – Katie Toomey
In this episode I have a candid conversation with agency editor Katie Toomey. This conversation was inspired by a recent article in Creative Cow titled “An Agency Editor Tells Her Story,” written by FiP’s own Kylee Wall. Katie and I talk about her journey from being an unhealthy, 90 pound overweight editor to someone who decided to transform her life wholesale. And she is succeeding.
Topics of Conversation Include:
Katie’s post production background
A day in the life of Katie at work
Coping with raised anxiety levels when people are in the room
Life as an editor at an agency
Katie discusses how she began this journey to better health
Needing surgery for a collapsed lung
Katie’s small steps to better health
Getting in shape and how to make permanent change
How to succeed by doing what works for you–trying still means you’re succeeding!
How Katie use MyFitnessPal to reach her health goals
Katie’s editing environment and hacking her workspace
We can change ourselves and work to help change our industry
We need awareness of what our industry is — Should we kill ourselves for the job? Should everything be ASAP?
