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
  • The reality of own-bossing (the side that the Instagram photos of people with laptops by the beach doesn’t show – aka that the freedom you want doesn’t automatically happen when you quit your job – and what to do about it).
  • ‘Beyond one-size fits all formulas’: finding your right next steps in a noisy world (particularly resonant in 2019, where comparisons and ‘quick fix how tos’ are all over your newsfeed)
  • Mental health/anxiety and business (includes stories of people who created ‘custom careers’ that work with, not against, these parts of them)
  • Crafting a life and business that suits you for real (rather than it just being a ‘smart sounding idea’ on paper!).
  • Making a change for real vs endless researching: the ‘free range’ approach to going from idea to doing in 2 weeks, without getting lost in analysis paralysis. 
  • As well as wider conversations and personal stories on creating work and a life that doesn’t require you to leave a part of yourself at the door in order to get paid (and why this is important to be talking about today in our comparison filled world).
