Episode 25 : Katia Kulawick Assante

If you want to follow the things you like, you need to listen to yourself. That’s the only intuition or advice that’s going to work because you know what you are doing and you know where you are going. No one else is going to know but you. You got to trust yourself.
— Katia Kulawick Assante

Katia is on my list of women I want to be when I grow up. She’s an author, a journalist, a wife and mum who splits her time today between Corsica, the French Alps and Paris. Today she writes for Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, and the Louis Vuitton City Guides. She started her career in 1995 at 18 as a rock journalist traveling the world over 200 days a year interviewing bands in a post-Nirvana world. She then went on to be the co-founder of Sport & Style and features director of Vogue Hommes International. Today in addition to her writing and journalism, Every summer, she sails on the most beautiful classic yachts during the Corsica Classic, a vintage yacht regatta celebrating its 10th birthday in 2019, an event she co-organizes with her husband. On this episode we talk about the journey of her career, what she prioritizes in her busy life, and how she maintains the rock n’ roll approach to life no matter location, setting or age. Get excited to have a new #wcw.

The people who love you, your family, they don’t want to let you go, so they’ll try to keep you with them. The world you want to reach, they won’t let you in. The story of your life is fighting between the two.
