Podcast talking points with Kate Toon

  • When did your entrepreneurial journey start and how did you get there?
  • In your recent digital marketing collective conference in Sydney, which I sadly didn’t attend, you did a 40-minute presentation called “HOW I MAKE MY MONEY (THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH)”. So… how do you make your money?
  • Your new book, Six Figures in School hours, is out now. I know you’re a writer by trade. But how did you come to choose this topic?
  • Do you advocate for separating work and home life? Is that even possible as a business owner? What strategies could people put in place to avoid things like burnout, at home or at work?
  • Do you practice any daily rituals to avoid business owner burnout?
  • Why do you think so many businesses fail?
  • In an age of AI and paid ads, can you leave us with 3 ways small business owners can use content marketing to grow in 2024?
