business and mental health
Tara McMullin (formally Tara Gentile) is a podcaster, writer, and small business community leader. With over a decade of experience helping thousands of small business owners grow their businesses, she’s on a mission to change the dialogue about what’s really working from hype to candid conversation.

She’s the host of the What Works podcast, a top small business podcast that’s been recommended by Forbes and Entrepreneur, as well as the founder of The What Works Network, a community hub for small business owners. She’s also a bestselling Money & Life instructor on CreativeLive. Her work has been featured on Fast Company, Inc, Daily Worth, and The Huffington Post.

In this conversation we talk about why she shifted from teaching, coaching and providing courses online to a radically different model – a community of learning filled with small business owners from across industries and business models who are ready and willing to get real about what’s working–and what’s not.

We talk about why, for most of us, taking course after course simply doesn’t work. There is no one size fits all approach, and instead, we need a combination of tailored solutions, support and ideas, community, resilience and more.

We also dive into what drove Tara personally to leave a very successful business model behind and create something radically difference (even if she didn’t initially realise just HOW radically different her new direction was!)


For me, Tara has always been at the cutting edge of small business thought leadership. She was the first business mentor I hired and her work has personally influenced me a lot over the years.

So this conversation was an absolute joy for me and I know you’re going to find it fascinating and wickedly useful too.
