The Succeeding Small Podcast


Founder & CEO


I founded Succeeding Small with a simple mission: help small businesses get the visibility they deserve through search engine optimization, web design, paid advertising, social media, and more. With a personal and family history rooted in entrepreneurship, I strive to lift up small businesses on a digital scale through integrity-filled marketing services and empowering education. With my degree in English and Marketing, I am a proud SEO enthusiast, rhetorician, and avid learner.
In addition to leading the agency, Madeleine runs a digital marketing internship program, teaches in-person and virtual workshops, and offers consulting services to small business owners. I am a proud leader of her team, an educator within her community, and a strong advocate of small business ownership and entrepreneurial success.
When I’m not spearheading a marketing campaign or networking in the community, you’ll find me loving on her baby girl as a proud new mom, binge-listening to business development podcasts, or trying to keep her succulents alive.
