Do the work, be boss!

By HeatherLylesMKTG - May 21 2019
Read more
This podcast has been a staple of mine throughout the last two or three years as I have built my own marketing consultancy. Their statement is simple: do the work, be boss! Kathleen and Shannon take a straightforward approach to explaining that there is a lot of boots-on-the-ground action that has to take place in order to run a successful business. It sounds glamorous to be a freelancer in a creative field, but there are definitely other things like accounting, pitches, and boring grunt work that comes along with it. I enjoy their witty banter, the variety of creative business owners that they interview, and listening to their words of wisdom and motivation. If you work from home, own your own business, or just need some “business bestie” in your life, they are a nice addition to your podcast rotation.

Fascinating content!

These two wise women are a powerhouse combined. You’d want to be friends with them. They balance “on task” information (aka the content matches the episode’s title) with a couple of side quips from their own lives and personal business journeys, making the podcast humorous and relatable. I really enjoy how they don’t mind sharing with their audience what they are trying out and why. They don’t come off like experts “from on high,” but more like expert experimenters letting us in on their discoveries (as found in the awesome recent episode about Instagram and blogging). The insights about hashtags were completely relevant to me (while revealing the inner workings of their partnership and thought-processes). I’m excited to see what subjects they tackle in the future!
