Biz Bestie #fangirl Worthy

People we follow online (and occasionally stalk in elevators when at conferences) because they are amazing!


Michael Stelzner of Social Media Examiner

Many people have influenced the podcast but it was a random conversation with Michael Stelzner at Podcast Movement that motivated the Besties to start their podcast ASAP and to prioritize it over some other endeavors they were considering.


Denise Duffield-Thomas of Lucky

Denise's book Get Rich, Lucky Bitch is part of what started it all! It was reading her book in the online book club that prompted that first GSD trip and initiated the connection between Amber and Maelisa. Plus, she has amazing ongoing resources and always keeps it real.


Natalie MacNeil of She Takes on the World

Amber and Maelisa are both members of Natalie's Conquer Club, which is a year long incubator for entrepreneurs. They love Natalie's gentle spirit and brilliant business acumen, combined with the amazing community she creates inside the Conquer Club. They also use and recommend her planner, Conquer Your Year.


Natalie Eckdahl of the Biz Chix Podcast

Natalie has one of the best business podcasts around and the Biz Besties recommend her to everyone! She often provides strategy that is counter to current online trends, but provides realistic expectations and improved revenue for those who follow her advice.


Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income

Pat is one of the O.G. business podcasters and genuinely a nice guy. When he does something he does it very well, which is why Amber and Maelisa joined his Power Up Podcasting course as soon as they decided to start a podcast. Yes, that’s an affiliate link because they highly recommend it, as well as his podcast!


Marie Forleo of Marie TV

Marie Forleo is basically the Godmother of online business. She's funny, smart and down to earth. She's also a smart business woman who has made millions of dollars and amazing connections (think Oprah and Tony Robbins) by combining strategy with authenticity.


If you reach out to any of these amazing people because of our fangirling, tell them! People love to know they are being admired and we have no shame about our #fangirl moments.
