PARENT GUILT with Kate Toon

PARENT GUILT with Kate Toon


If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?

“The pressure that we put ourselves under these days to be the ‘perfect parent’. It’s unsustainable.”



Kate Toon is a down to earth human on a mission: to demystify the realities of running a successful online business.  She’s an award-winning digital marketing entrepreneur. A Google Beast tamer - as it were, and one straight-talking copywriting coach. Kate is a popular educator, very engaging speaker - which is how we met and she’s the author of several books.


Kate is funny, and brings energy to everything she does. She’s a proud business misfit, a mad-good hula hooper and a slightly-wonky rollerskater. But don’t let those quirky traits fool you - Kate is one savvy business woman.


Her StayTooned group of companies include the Digital Masterchefs, The Clever Copywriting School, and The Recipe for SEO Success. Through these, Kate’s helped more than 10,000 other businesses demystify digital marketing, grapple the Google Beast, and grow their overall success. 


Kate is a renowned speaker, podcaster and author, and was named Businesswoman of the Year and Training & Education Provider of the Year at the national My Business Awards. She also runs Australia’s only dedicated annual copywriting conference, CopyCon. And all this from the Toon Cave in her backyard, accompanied only by her very own CFO (Chief Furry OfficeDog) Pomplemousse and assisted remotely by a team of talented sub-contractors.


“Honestly, I’ve never felt like I fit into the conventional picture of a successful businesswoman. I’m a little bit scruffy, sarcastic and I’ve never written a business plan. But my misfit approach to business has served me well, and I love helping other humans create success on their own terms.”  - KATE TOON


She’s my kinda gal. Please enjoy this wonderfully enlightening conversation with the fabulous Kate Toon.
