Welcome to The Modern Independent -- a podcast dedicated to inspiring, equipping, and empowering top independent workers to supercharge their careers and lives.

On this episode of The Launchpad, Jan will be joined by guest Melissa Ripp -- a communications expert for purpose-driven brands and people. Mel is the founder of Peapod Marketing & PR.

Peapod focuses primarily on brand storytelling and messaging, content strategy and development, social media, and public relations. Mel has held marketing communications-focused positions at companies with niches all over the board (education technology, B2B manufacturing, non-profits, food & beverage). Her freelance work is full of the same variety.

In today’s episode, we’ll cover

  • Talking about the stress of going independent, and the importance of learning to say “no”

  • Why it’s so important to put ourselves into the mind of our customers, and some ways to help do that

  • A story about Mel’s grandma reminding us that sometimes, just showing up to do something you’re scared to death of doing, is the bravest thing we can do.
