Show Notes

Who says work and business shouldn’t business be fun?

In fact, when we’re having fun we are more likely to create great products, please customers, and improve the bottom lines of our businesses. We attract ‘A’ players – and all round, enjoy our lives much more.

Kathryn Kemp Guylay knows a lot about how to have fun and leverage fun in business.

She is the founder and CEO of MakeEverythingFun.com, a platform for online education, training, resources and podcasts. She also leverages her own fun-loving spirit also to serve the entrepreneurial community as the CEO of the Ketchum Innovation Center.

Kathryn has spent more than 25 years in the business and nonprofit management world as a coach, executive director, management consultant, and CEO – with clients like IBM, GE, 3M, Motorola, Siemens and dozens of other Fortune 500/100 companies as well as small and mid-sized companies.

And as a Platinum-level Certified Happiness Ambassador, certified through the Happy for No Reason program with Marci Shimoff, she’s got this fun stuff down!

  • How to leverage fun to increase your productivity
  • Why associative fluency is the key to success, in other words how to connect the seemingly unrelated to innovate

Kathryn calls herself a life-long learner – a self-description most successful entrepreneurs share.  After all, what is entrepreneurship if not learning and more learning, with new lessons every day along the ups and downs of the roller-coaster ride.

In Kathryn’s case, it has led to a vast array of multidisciplinary experience and expertise.

She is a six-time author – with titles as diverse as Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Lifelong Lessons from the Slopes, Make Nutrition Fun; Look Before Your Leap: A Smart Author’s Guide to Avoiding the Money Pit and Achieving Financial Success in Publishing and Give It A Go: Eat a Rainbow.

As CEO of the Ketchum Innovation Center, she’s busy helping other entrepreneurs leverage their innovations – and have fun as they are doing it. As an award-winning coach and management consultant for years to top companies, she has a profound understanding of what works and what doesn’t – and why a fun company culture is the wave of the future. In fact, companies that don’t figure this out – even Fortune 100s – will be extinct.

Beyond her MBA, Kathryn has a Certification in Nutritional Counseling (CNC), a Faculty membership in the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA), and she’s a certified trainer for Jack Canfield and Marci Shimoff’s Happy for No Reason programs. She has been featured as an expert in nutrition, wellness, publishing, and entrepreneurship on ABC, CBS, NPR, Publishers Weekly and hundreds of radio interviews and articles.
