    Doing Business Differently to Grow

    Doing Business Differently to Grow

    You know the saying “Nothing Changes if Nothing Changes” – so if your business isn’t growing the way you want it to or fast enough – what are you changing to change the outcome?  Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity, and yet, so many small business owners are doing the same thing with their marketing, day in and day out, and expecting a different result.  Let’s chat about how to do things differently. Great episode.  Listen in. You can find the show notes at www.socialmediaandmarketing.com.au/199

Episode 166 - and now I think we all love you just a little bit more

Hey Jen - thanks for your honesty in sharing mistakes and more importantly your lessons - I appreciated how owning them also gave you agency to take action. (Ps don’t hang on to the messages if you only pull them out to whack yourself with). Looking forward to sharing 2022 with you K

Jen, I cannot thank you enough for taking a leap of faith and starting this podcast.

I’ve recently found you and am listening from the very beginning, it has been so incredibly valuable for me having recently launched my business. You are so generous in the content you provide, with clear actions, tips and tricks and how social media and marketing strategies can be adopted in any industry.

Thank you so so much, I can’t recommend you highly enough and am telling all my small business peeps about you!
