The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #79
How To Write Your Own Success Story with Marie Wiese, Founder of Marketing CoPilot
I knew this podcast episode was going to be great…
A Canadian, Content Marketer, Best Selling Author, and Entrepreneur – that’s a recipe for a perfect guest and Marie Wiese didn’t disappoint!
In this episode of The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast, Marie Wiese talks about her entrepreneurial journey and how she was able to literally write her own success story. After being gifted a typewriter when she was a little girl by her grandmother, that gift for storytelling, led to a career in PR. That career quickly led down an entrepreneurial path with a startup, which, like many other dot-com businesses in the mid-2000’s, unfortunately, led to a financial collapse.
Marie bounced back and started consulting. After reflecting on how she helped the business grow to 100+ employees and raised over $25 million in funding, she knew she could repeat that process. Years later, Marie continues to run Marketing CoPilot and “help companies build digital marketing programs that make a difference. We deliver strategic guidance and tactical execution so companies can jump-start their digital marketing efforts to be more engaging, customer-centric and competitive.”
