Show Notes:

In today’s episode we sat down to chat with Maggie Giele, a digital strategist who works with creative entrepreneurs to really wrangle all of their ideas into a strategy that moves their business forward. Maggie is not someone who considers herself to be a creative, but the work she does with her clients can be out-of-the-box and unique enough, that we call her creative. Not to mention the positioning for her own brand is not something you come across everyday!

Maggie had a lot of great insight into focusing your creativity into actual goals and money for your business, and we really think you’ll find this episode interesting if you’re struggling to decide which direction to move your business in.
