It's easy to lose your way in the 21st-century economy. The world of work and business is changing so rapidly that you might start focusing more on how to keep up than how to live a meaningful life. What Works is a podcast for entrepreneurs, independent workers, and employees who don't want to lose themselves to the whims of late-stage capitalism. Host Tara McMullin covers money, management, culture, media, philosophy, and more to figure out what's working (and what's not) today. Tara offers a distinctly interdisciplinary approach to the discourse around business, work, and personal growth.

Honest, Intelligent, Insightful, Authentic…Must Listen.

Thank you Tara McMullin for the immense amount of time you must put into researching, constructing and producing each episode. My new favorite episode is #386 about Getting Paid as a small business owner. 🙏🏻Thank you for discussing Wages vs. Profit, as well as the actual cost (and toll) of being a creator, and the fallacy of passive income.

I spend a significant amount of time de-programming my audience and clients about what it really takes to have a “passive” income and the size of audience they need to make it a viable revenue dream.

You also gave one of the best breakdowns of how an S-Corp operates.

While we might disagree on what a “fair” profit margin is, I appreciate your point of view. We need to understand what we are really trying to create through our businesses and it is not just MORE.

My inner intellectual is grateful that you have more thinking, researching and writing time. Thank you for the art you are creating through this podcast.
I see you!
