Every small business owner wants to know…

“What works?”

But the answer is complicated. What works for one business might not work for another.

I created What Works to celebrate the unique ways we run our businesses.

Our goal is the affirm the resourcefulness and creativity all entrepreneurs have in common. Our hope is that, by giving you behind the scenes access to how real small businesses run and connecting you to honest conversations with other small business owners, you’ll be free to discover what works for you.

My name is Tara McMullin (although there’s a good chance you might know me better as Tara Gentile). I’m the founder of What Works–as well as the host & executive producer of our podcast. I’ve been working with small business owners beyond the startup phase for over 10 years now.
