Redesigning Your Life with Laughter with Merit Kahn
In today’s episode, I interviewed the incredibly talented and funny Merit Kahn. Merit shares some truly insightful and entertaining stories about her journey to creating her one-woman show. From cold calling theaters and accidentally stumbling upon a potential collaboration, to finding humor in life’s frustrations, Merit’s experiences and perspectives will inspire and entertain.
She also introduces us to her upcoming workshop, “Rewrite to rewire,” where she guides participants through exercises aimed at rewriting the past and rewiring the future (through the lens of comedy). Merit also shares her approach to collaboration, the importance of taking the next right step, and the impact of connecting with others.
Merit Kahn performs on three stages- keynotes for conferences, one-woman shows in theaters, and comedy sets in clubs. She’s a producer, writer, entrepreneur, certified speaking professional, world traveler, mom, and terrible cook (her words, not ours)!
