Agency owner and principal of Simantel makes a big announcement on the podcast about her life and the future of the company. Find out what’s next for Maggie.
The Stories About What Goes on Behind the Scenes
After an entire year of our lives being fundamentally different than ever before – there is pent up demand to make things happen! That’s why in Season 4 of Marketing Sweats, we take an inside look at the small pushes that leaders and marketers are making behind the scenes to take their organizations to the next level. It’s about the bravery, grit and sweat equity we as marketers put in on a daily basis that most don’t see.
I believe building momentum is the key to long-term success, so we dig into what our guests have learned this past year, how they’re leveraging their own personal pasts to build the next chapter of their stories, and what they see as the greatest hurdles for leading their organizations into the future.
This season, I sit down with leaders and marketers whose job is to set visionary direction and stay-the-course. But we’ll also sprinkle in conversations with innovators, entrepreneurs and consultants who bring a unique perspective on creating a new version of themselves. And this season, we even have a special announcement by my business partner at Simantel, Maggie Whalen Misselhorn, about the future of our own business.
My hope is that you’ll take something away from this season to get re-focused and re-inspired to keep making those small pushes, knowing they make a big impact in the long-term.
