This is Michelle Mazur's story...

Michelle Mazur has always been good at spotting patterns. She saw a pattern in social movements and in the messaging of successful entrepreneurs and realized that there was a way to take questions from social movement theory and apply them to business. This led to the development of her Three Word Rebellion messaging framework. 

Michelle realized that the Three Word Rebellion framework could also be used to name podcasts. She saw that many business owners struggle with communicating what their business is all about and that this was often due to a lack of a clear and concise message. 

The Three Word Rebellion framework provides a way for business owners to create a tight message that is easy for people to understand. The Three Word Rebellion process consists of three steps: free writing, pattern spotting, and distilling all of that into your three word rebellion.

In this episode, you will learn the following:

  1. The surprising link between academia and entrepreneurship, and how you can leverage it for your brand messaging 
  2. The Three Word Rebellion messaging framework, and how it can be used to name a podcast
