Manu Muraro spent 15 years as a creative marketer for Cartoon Network. After she got laid off, she went to a startup, but the experience of being on all the time while holding a baby in her lap left her feeling exhausted, burned out, and unsatisfied. 

She decided to look slowly for another job and freelance until she found her next role. However, freelancing naturally led her to launch a membership business. Now, at Your Social Team, she helps social media managers and entrepreneurs use Instagram to take the guessing game out of content creation and generate top-performing posts.

Today, Manu joins the podcast to share her story of healing from burnout, creating her own opportunities where others might see closing doors, and the beauty of saying “yes” – even when you don’t have all the answers.

Key Takeaways

  • What Manu did when she was un-invited to a big marketing conference after she got laid off from her startup job – and how this led her to sell out her first event. 
  • The power of collaborating with and believing in people with huge potential.
  • Why you don’t need to figure everything out to launch your membership site.

Memorable Quote

  • “I think if you’re not bringing something different to the table, you should go back to the drawing board because people come to you for you. There are so many people that do exactly what I do but they come to me because I have a certain style not because they just want exactly what other people offer.” – Manu Moraro
