They say if I have a photo here it will increase my conversion rates

Hi, I'm Margo. I don't know how to grow your business, build your email list, or increase traffic to your site.

If you are here looking for answers to the tactical parts of your business, I'm guessing we have bigger problems. Which is where I might actually be useful. 


Columbia gave me a graduate degree in psychology (suckers), so I'm qualified to talk about it on the internet.

For the good stuff, you'll want to be on my email list (see below). That's where we talk about the mental side of entrepreneurship along with whatever else I feel like talking about that week. This website is for articles, my running list of books worth your time, and to plug my virtual coworking space for entrepreneurs who work from home.

"You're a breath of fresh air in a world of bullsh*t." - Carolynn A., a reader I swear I did not pay to say that.
