Episode 50: Melanie Kluger on Goal Setting, Book Publishing, And Why It’s Ok Not To Know Everything Before You Start

Melanie Kluger, personal stylist, confidence booster, and best-selling author of The Confident Closet, on A Braver Brand with Kate K. McCarthy

Friends! I am beyond thrilled to be welcoming to the podcast this week my dear friend, Melanie Kluger, personal stylist, confidence booster, and now… best-selling author of The Confident Closet.

In today’s episode, we talk all about:

  • Melanie’s journey from costume designer to bestselling author

  • How the idea for her book was born - and what it was like to declare and, then, follow through on her declaration

  • Why it’s ok not to know everything before you start

  • The essential elements of any big, meaningful creative project

  • Why we need support - and how to know who to ask

  • Going a non-traditional route - and the lessons that Melanie learned from self-publishing

  • Why tracking impact is so important to our business’ longevity


I loved this conversation. It was real, hilarious, and utterly honest. Listen in.
