Today’s guest: Melissa Guller
“I think saying yes to opportunities is huge for anybody with knowledge to share.”
Melissa Guller is a course creator, podcast producer, and the CEO of Wit & Wire, where she helps online business owners start and scale their own podcasts. She’s produced multiple Top 50 podcasts. And, you might recognize her as the original host of Everything is Teachable. During her time as host, the podcast was one of Apple’s Best New Business podcasts in 2019.
But beyond that, Melissa loves to teach entrepreneurs. She has helped nearly 2,000 students through Wit & Wire’s online programs so far. Today, she’s on a mission to help more diverse entrepreneurs earn money online doing work they love.
Once Melissa realized that she could combine her love of podcasting with the genuine joy she has found in teaching others, creating courses on Teachable was an easy choice. As the former head of engagement at Teachable, she made valuable connections and learned top insights from fellow creators. In turn, this motivated her to transition away from her full-time job at Teachable to become a full-time Teachable creator.
In this episode, we’ll talk about the strategies that helped her get here, the fears she overcame to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams, the power of a private community, and more.
