Small business marketing mentorship!

Love getting my weekly Marketing fix from the ladies at Marketing that Matters.
So easy to chuck on when I’m going about my day & so informative/thought provoking!

As a small business owner, Aleesha & Jade help me to think outside the box from a marketing/branding perspective and sometimes just clear the clutter from my small business brain & enable me to get back to the basics.

They make applying marketing principles simple 🙏🏻

Thanks Marketing That Matters!

Love this podcast

I didn’t think I had much interest in marketing but these impressive women are great to listen to. Although not my field of work or study, I found they give great insight into what it is to be a women in the corporate world, with many thought-provoking issues discussed (some favorites being that of ‘our un-lived lives’ and discussions on niceties in emails). The delivery of the podcast is laidback, allowing me to go about my day, listening in as if I were part of a conversation with the two of them. I’d highly recommend this podcast not only to those interested in marketing, but to tafe/uni students curious about the corporate world (particularly as a professional women), or for anyone looking for an upbeat and easy to listen to podcast to enjoy while going about your day.

My favourite podcast

I love listening to these two woman and the different topics they discuss each week. They don’t always agree but that’s ok.
