Imagine if you created your life based on the truth of who you really are. You’d have a whole different life. You’d also be a B.R.A.T.™

A B.R.A.T.™ doesn’t let anything or anyone get in the way of who she is or who she needs to become. Not even herself.

She also likes to stir things up—to be heard, to make a difference, and to have a little fun.

Host Kathy Barthel (aka Bratty Kathy) interviews one on every episode of THE B.R.A.T.™ SHOW.

A B.R.A.T.™ is:
Bold: She owns who she is and what she does, despite pushback.
Relevant: She creates compelling content and experiences.
Addictive: She leaves you wanting more.
Transformative: She disrupts the status quo to create positive change.

Not your grandmother’s idea of a brat.


Kathy Barthel (aka Bratty Kathy, the name of her personal blog that started it all) is the host, creator, producer, and owner of THE B.R.A.T.™ SHOW; and the creator and owner of the B.R.A.T.™ brand.

Kathy spent over 25 years as a journalist and is also a former TV host and TV producer who has created content for major media including CTV, CBC, YTV, MSN, HGTV, Rogers, and Slice.

She is also a video and camera presence coach and consultant; and a writer, editor, and writing coach for business professionals.

“You remind me of Brian Linehan. I don’t know if people know who he is, but Brian Linehan was an interviewer in Canada and he interviewed a lot of famous people like Barbra Streisand. He’d be interviewing the person and she’d say to him—the most famous people in the world—and she’d say, how did you know that? How did you know that? And oh my god Kathy, you are the most prepared. I mean, I do a ton of interviews but you’re almost quoting verbatim from my book and I’m so impressed!”
