In the Media

I’m Tara Gentile and I’m in business to change business.

Wanna know why? She’s right up there. The cute one. On the left.

I love to talk to journalists, media personalities, bloggers, and podcasters about the New Economy, passion-driven business, the philosophy of social media, and the changing entrepreneurial landscape. If you want more than surface mumbo jumbo, I’ve got an opinion for you.

Please contact Carrie to arrange an interview via email, phone, Skype, or live & in person. No media outlet too big. No blog too small.

I’m also available for live events, speaking engagements, and teleseminars. Please contact Carrie.

You’ve got questions, I’ve got insight:
  • What is the New Economy? How is it different from the last 20 years?
  • Is there really a stable alternative to the job market?
  • How do you decide what kind of business to start or skills to offer for hire?
  • Making money with an online business sounds easy. Is it?
  • What are the unique challenges of being a mom and an entrepreneur?
  • How do you reconcile art & money?

As a thought leader in DIY culture & lifestyle design, I’ve written extensively on how artists & crafters (of all kinds) are reshaping the economy in their image. Some of my more popular pieces include:

3 Reasons to Pay More for Your Stuff it’s time to rethink the value of stuff. sometimes stuff costs more because it’s worth more: the person who created it is skilled, the design is innovative, the materials are longer lasting…

Disposable Culture & Our Fear of Commitment We have a serious problem with commitment. And so we have a serious problem with money: the way we earn it, the way we save it, the way we spend it.

The Seduction of Busyness You are busy. It wasn’t always like this. There used to be time for hobbies, or day trips, or movie nights, or reading. But Busyness spoke sweet nothings in your ear. Promised you more. Offered you everything you ever wanted: more money, smarter kids, better body, yummier food, more culture.

Priorities, Choice, and the Nagging Desire for More I know you. You want to finish the project you started last month. You want to have the next great idea. You want to stretch your creative muscles and energize your imagination. You want to stop making conventional choices and start marking ones that make the rest of the world question your judgment.
