Meet the Minds Behind Audacity Marketing


Our passion is helping businesses succeed with audacious, community-led marketing.

We’re Hazel and Michelle, two marketing professionals who met in the world of WordPress. We bonded over our shared passion for helping small businesses and emerging tech companies to succeed with their marketing efforts.

We started the Audacity Marketing Podcast as a way to share our real-world experiences and insights with a wider audience. We believe in being authentic and fostering genuine connections with our listeners. Our goal is to empower our listeners to take control of their marketing and make bold moves that will help them stand out in the marketplace.

We believe in the power of community and fostering relationships. Our approach is not only to talk at you, but to have a conversation and build a community that will help you grow your business.

We’re here to provide real, actionable advice and a community-based approach that will help you to reach your goals.
