Love the Podcast

I love this PodCast. Tara is so authentic and transparent when she speaks about her journey with her own business. The interviews are fantastic. I am a CPA and have been a C Suite Exec turned entrepreneur. I love how this podcast focuses on What Works in the Entrepreneur world.

Becoming a Super Fan

I am so excited to have found this podcast. I've been listening for a while now and have been binging it as of late. Take that Netflix! Tara is fantastic at really looking at the nitty gritty details of running a business. I really appreciate her authenticity and the way she draws that same sense of authenticity and candidness from her guests.

Favorite New Podcast!

I was first drawn to this podcast because I love the idea of overriding guru-culture. Go Tara! I appreciate smart humble people who are constantly willing to learn while sharing their successes and failures. As an avid listener, it’s obvious Tara McMullin embodies the philosophy she spreads. Most successful business owners are on a journey of ups and downs. Getting to witness these highs and lows along with honest conversations about what works (and what doesn’t) is useful for small business owners across all industries and platforms. The guests are well-chosen and the conversations are focused in a relevant manner. This is a podcast I can choose over and over again for my dog walks and never be disappointed.

Super awesome show

I love the tactical, honest and real rawness Ben delivers in this podcast. Seriously amazing guests and Tara is a absolutely amazing host. Every episode teaches me something new. I hit subscribe and definitely can’t wait for the next show!!!


This is the ONLY business podcast I listen to and recommend consistently. Tara is a genius at creating a space for real business owners in the thick of things to share exactly what they are doing in their business, in a way that is genuinely illuminating for any business owner, however far their field is from the interview subject. In a sea of annoying/fluffy/advice driven business podcasts I can’t stand, I am so grateful for this one!!!!

I wouldn’t miss a single episode

I don’t have a lot of time to listen to many podcasts. So I am very picky about the ones that I listen to. I would not miss an episode of Tara’s podcast and in fact I have to backtrack and watch all the ones I’ve missed since I’ve only recently become familiar with her. But every episode I’ve listen to thus far resonates with every bone in my body. As a full-time touring musician and educator specializing in music for early childhood, my days consist of more than practicing, trust me. I have to pay attention to my business, my productivity, my self-care, and more. Thank you Tara - the way you show up, your vulnerability and the value you provide are priceless.


My biz crush forever! This is such a treat for all of us to have access to Tara’s brilliance. ❤️

Practical advice; inspirational episodes

Love this show! Tara asks great questions and digs into the core of what makes a business work well. I learn something new with each episode.

This is my favorite place to learn about business

I've stopped listening to a lot of business podcasts that only offer advice but never miss an episode of What Works because this podcast raises the bar for conversations about business. I benefit immensely from listening to these candid interviews with small business owners and always take away new ideas or things I want to try in my business.

Wonderful Podcast!! One of a kind

This podcast is one of my favorites available. Tara is an excellent interviewer and I often forget I’m listening to an interview because it feels like two friends having a conversation. Episode #196 with Bonnie Gillespie has a ton of actionable content and is refreshing and inspiring. Great podcast all around!

Finally, a podcast I won’t tire of

I can’t exactly remember how I stumbled upon the What Works Podcast and Tara but I’m so glad I did. As a newer entrepreneur, but someone new to the concepts of online marketing and business, this podcast is truly a breath a fresh air. Love listening as Tara has candid conversations with real people about what’s working for them and their businesses. Oftentimes, they’ve taken the road less traveled, which is always a reminder there isn’t a one-size-fits-all way to run your business. Nothing but pure gold in these episodes with no agenda other than sharing stories that may help other small business owners succeed.

Tara nails it

I’ve been bingeing this podcast lately and I’m finding so many helpful gems. As someone who has been in business for while, and who even hosts my own small business podcast, I’m so impressed with the real world advice. Tara, you’ve inspired me to do a Spring Cleaning!

Permission to Forge Your Own Path

Do you know when you listen to someone’s story and think... but how does sewing apply to my life? Tara has an applicable way of pulling your focus to innovative approaches of forming habits in your business based on you and your personality and strengths from the experts she interviews. I really love how she uses story telling, simile, and metaphors while speaking to real business owners who overcame obstacles in business to live life and their business on their terms.

Tara is a gem

Tara’s honest and relevant conversations with real small business owners are what keeps me coming back to this podcast. She’s not afraid to challenge the status quo and discover what’s *really* working for small business owners. Don’t miss out on this insightful podcast!

Great Podcast

I love Tara's consistent orientation around the importance of building relationship and customization in your approach that fits an individual style. This is an illuminating and consistently valuable podcast.

Tara gets small businesses

Tara is a fantastic interviewer and asks the questions I want to hear as a listener. She is engaged with all her guests, giving them space to articulate while also guiding the conversation.

Amazing Small Business Insights

I get so many ideas from listening to this podcast. Tara asks EXCELLENT questions. What I love the most is hearing from business owners whose business is different from mine and seeing what works for them, and what I can apply in my own business.

Red flags and no panic

Great info. I'm currently looking for a VA and this Podcast came at just the right time. It's great to be able to relax and hand off the basicsof content production and support

Awesome Podcast!!

Tara Gentile, host of the What Works podcast, highlight all aspects of entrepreneurship, marketing and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!

Awesome show, highly recommend!

Tara and her guests provide some incredibly actionable and compelling content, spotlighting the absolute best insights on how to effectively grow your business, without draining your bank account (and well-being). Highly recommend listening and subscribing to What Works if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to take your small business to the next level (and reach your overall goals as a result)!

One of my go-to Business Podcasts

I love Tara’s “let’s get real” style and willingness to go deep with her guests about what’s actually working in their businesses. With so much smoke and mirrors content out there in the business world, this podcast is a refreshing, honest, and genuinely useful change of pace for serious small business owners.

Real, honest conversations

Love this podcast because it's real conversations about what happens in business. Tara is down to earth and her guests are open about wins and losses. What keeps me coming back? The persepectives of the guests that provide mindset shift and actionable honest advice.

Refreshing Podcasts with Real Truths

There is so many podcast on "how" to run a small business and they all seem to say the same. This What Works podcast is different because Tara dives into what works and sometimes what doesn't in a variety of different small businesses. Love hearing the stories behind each business, what is working for them and what their plans for growth in the future. Lot's of valuable true business information. One of my favorite podcasts.

A Must-Listen for any Small-Business Owner

Tara has a no-BS approach that is all about transparency and (ahem) what WORKS when it comes to starting, building, growing, and running a small business. You won't find "magic 6-figure formulas" or other smoke-and-mirrors BS, but REAL stories about what works for REAL business owners. Tara is the real deal. She's not a guru -- she doesn't try to get you to copy her; her goal is to get you to find YOUR OWN answers. So much more powerful, if you're willing to put in the effort. As with everything Tara produces, this podcast is authentic, super high-quality, down to earth, and top-notch. One of my all-time faves.

Honest insight from other biz owners

I love the conversations Tara and her guests have on this show. It's not every day you get to hear the honest, unvarnished truth about what's working in someone's business, the changes they've made, the lessons learned, and so on. Highly recommended for anyone who wants an inside peek at others' businesses to find ideas for their own.

Not the same old business podcast

I love What Works for two key reasons: The diversity of guests (in terms of people diversity and industry diversity), and the emphasis on identifying the specific levers that make each business work. Inspirational stories are nice, but I'd rather learn what's REALLY working for small businesses!

Tara is an incredible interviewer

She always drills down on exactly the same follow up questions I have and so many more I could never imagine. I always walk away with a new idea to implement in my business. Highly recommend!

Love the contract shop episode!

Like all the other episodes, I really loved the one with Christina from the contract shop. It made the lawyer legal stuff about owning your own business a little less scary. Thanks for having her on!

Tara asks the hard questions to get real with her guests

What I love about Tara's show is how she isn't afraid to dig in and get real with the guests. She asks the questions we would LOVE to see answered but aren't usually brought up. Thanks for giving us the real real on your guests, Tara!

Will Zing you with Energy and Insight

Tara has such awesome energetic energy that is contagious! I greatly appreciate the fun and insightful guests she invites on who also bring uplifting energy while also sharing the business smarts! It's obvious that Tara is engaged and authentic with her guests. Cheers to more!
