Today I have the joy of talking with Katelyn Duban. Katelyn shares her story of going from typing in the Google search bar “what do farm wives do” to now working full time on the farm and being the creator and host of the amazing show, The Rural Woman Podcast. Katelyn and I share our passion for supporting rural women to do things outside the norm and having the audacity to try something different.
Katelyn Duban is a first-generation farmer, storyteller, and community builder. She has had the privilege of celebrating the stories of Women in Agriculture through her podcast, The Rural Woman Podcast, since 2019. With over half a million downloads, Duban has been able to reach and amplify the voices of rural women to a worldwide audience.
In this episode about having the audacity to try something different, we cover:
- Her mental health story and how The Rural Woman Podcast came to be
- How your definition of success can change and evolve over time and how it’s different for everyone/every family
- Supporting diversity in agriculture and beyond
- The gift of growth through failure
- The importance of trying things differently rather than trying harder
- Questions to ask when you’re overwhelmed by self doubt
