Hi, I’m Molly!

I’m fascinated by marketing, obsessed with teaching, and committed to helping you build a life and a career that you love.

Digital marketing completely changed my life.

Talk about a huge understatement!

In 2012, I left my bartending job in Kentucky to become an intern at DigitalMarketer. If you told me back then that in just 4 years I would be Vice President, I would have laughed out loud. And if you told me that two years later, in 2017, I would walk away from DigitalMarketer and quit my dream job… well, I probably would have cried.

But all roads have led me here. While I may have left what was once my dream job, I’ve found my dream life: I live on my own terms, doing what I love with people I love; I speak on stages across the world; and best of all I get to help thousands of businesses grow.

Through my digital marketing courses and my new book, Click Happy, I help people like you take the next step in their digital marketing journey by landing their dream job, advancing their career or transforming their business.

The last 8 years have been an absolute rollercoaster ride, and I’ve learned a lot along the way.

As a former competitive soccer player, I use to believe that the secret to success was hard work. So when I got started in Digital I worked really, really hard. 16-hour days were the norm, and I once worked for 3 days straight. And it paid off…

On my way to becoming CEO of Smart Marketer, I also:

  • Handled over $16 million in profitable ad spend
  • Co-hosted the Perpetual Traffic Podcast (with over 5 million downloads)
  • Taught paid traffic and customer acquisition to over 10,000 paying business owners
  • Spoke at huge events like Traffic & Conversion Summit and Social Media World

By the time I was 24, I’d accomplished more than I’d ever dreamed of! Little did I know that I was heading toward disaster…

After years of hustling and grinding to excel at my career, all that hard work caused me to burn out. My relationships were suffering, my hobbies were non-existent, and I was on the verge of physical and emotional collapse. (This is more common than people think!)

But what felt like the end of the road was really just the beginning of the next step in my journey.

After my burnout, I learned 2 very important lessons.

The first is that if you want success and longevity in any career — and especially in Digital — then you need work-life balance. I started focusing on my diet, spending time with friends and, believe it or not, doing things other than work! It felt really, really good.

I realized that while hard work is important (especially in the beginning of your career), my value is not measured by how many hours I work but by what I produce. And by not over-exerting myself I could produce my best work day in, day out without running out of gas.

The second thing I learned was that I wanted to fill my work with purpose and meaning.

Even as VP of an awesome company, I was spending 75% of my time doing stuff I didn’t love. So after 5 years with the DigitalMarketer family (and some serious soul searching)… I left. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.

But I had renewed energy and a newfound clarity in what I wanted. I realized that while marketing is my craft, and I love it, teaching is my passion. I wanted to help people grow and succeed, and inspire them to do good in the world.
