Molly launched MM Consulting, an independent strategic marketing firm that focuses on taking the ‘intimidation factor’ out of traditional and social media-based marketing for local, start-up, non-profit, small, and medium sized businesses in January of 2016. MM Consulting provides clients with strategic direction and tactical management of marketing, social media, and public relations’ efforts, including but not limited to content creation, brand strategy, social postings and advertising, email marketing, website evaluation, and design to help them tell their brand story in an authentic, captivating way.

Jacqui primarily works in Business Development for her family’s insurance agency, Phil Richard Insurance and is also the founder of The Next Gen Network, the groundbreaking networking group that tells you to ‘leave your sales pitch at home’. Based on the North Shore & Boston, this membership group started as a social experiment and has flourished into a built-in support system for you, your business, and local community. The Next Gen Network partners with local organizations and membership-based networking groups to help you maximize your exposure, bridge the obvious age gap you often see in networking, and connect you with other professionals who want to grow their business by giving back.
