Topics : the inside view (for podcasters and bloggers)


If you’re keen to interview Marianne and want a steer on the topic, some ideas include:


  • Why your ‘weirdness is your edge’ (an unconventional way of finding your right direction)
  • Creating a ‘custom’ career or business when no one idea fully fits you
  • ADHD and business (including her story of creating a ‘custom career’ that works with, not against this!)
  • Finding your ‘edge’. Standing out from the crowd without shouting (and without changing your personality).
  • Crafting a life and business that fits you, what you want and works for real (rather than just a ‘smart sounding idea’ on paper!).
  • Making a change for real vs endless researching: the ‘free range’ approach to going from idea to doing without getting lost in analysis paralysis (perfect for an audience of high achievers or similar)
  • ‘Beyond one-size fits all formulas’: finding your right next steps without getting lost in the online noise.
  • As well as wider conversations and personal stories on creating work / business that fit your personality (and what you want from here) – as well as really work in 2024.
