Today we’d like to introduce you to Kelly Ann Gorman.
So, before we jump into specific questions, let us share some details about Kelly and her story.
At an early age, it was clear to people around Kelly that she was destined for a career using her outgoing personality and creativity. With a true passion for color, she started off painting which led to photography and then blossomed into a love of makeup artistry and design.
Since starting her beauty, luxury, business and service-driven careers, Kelly has traveled to the most exotic and remote locations in the world, whether on a cruise ship giving seminars to cooking, cleaning, wining and dining onboard private yachts and jets working with the elite. From folding napkins to curling lashes, Kelly has seen it, done it and strives to do more! After years of working for corporate America, Kelly realized something was always standing in the way of her true connection to the client. That something was the corporation. She realized that a personal relationship was needed, a direct connection to Kelly!
In 2016 Kelly was diagnosed with MS and in 2017, she was diagnosed with an extremely rare autoimmune disease called NMO. She quickly learned that becoming an advocate for your own health and rights would be a full-time job and knew she needed to use her voice and create a platform for others to come to, be heard and learn more. That is when The Happy Workaholic Podcast was born. A show focused on Business, LinkedIn and Life with an Autoimmune Disease. Three things Kelly knew best!
In 2019 Kelly found out that she was misdiagnosed with both diseases. Not only did she have to change her way of everyday thinking and living life she also had to change the format and model of the show. The new and upgraded version of The Happy Workaholic Podcast is intended to elevate your mind, upgrade your business, enhance your life and become a part of a positive and uplifting community. Inspiration, motivation, determination and a never give up attitude are what got Kelly to where she is today, and she cannot wait to share the stories of other female entrepreneurs, professional patients, business owners and fellow podcasters who will be featured on the show.
Kelly has always taken a more personal approach to business. She continuously uses her expertise and knowledge to raise awareness through patient advocacy and grow The Happy Workaholic Podcast, Network, her coaching experiences and her consulting programs she has created in order to enhance your business and life and get you to that next level you deserve to be at!
Has it been a smooth road?
Being diagnosed with MS and NMO (a disease that would leave me blind and paralyzed) and then learning I was misdiagnosed last year after being “sick” for three years. After many hospitals stay, rounds of chemo, blood transfusions, heavy prescription medications and more I am now off all meds and living a holistically healthy life. I am also now representing myself in six medical malpractice legal cases.
Fortunately enough, my Podcast and Network were created after having to find a solution to work and make money if I were to not be able to take care of myself. I had to bring over 20 years of work experience into the online space and then create and launch a podcast so I could talk about Business and make my money doing that as I would still have my voice if my vision were to go!

Life is short and when you’re given a second chance, you better believe Kelly is going to take it, celebrate and share it with you! Inspiration, motivation, determination and a never give up attitude are what got her to where she is today.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Yes! I think San Diego is a great place to start out. So many opportunities to network. Coffee shops, co-working environments, happy hour. You never know who is listening or watching! Your next opportunity could be sitting right next to you! I talk to everyone whenever I am out! At the market, shopping, drive thru’s, etc. Just be nice to everyone. You never know what impact a smile and hello could do for someone’s day and/or business! Life is short you know… I have learned that the hard way but so grateful to be able to help and inspire more with my story…
