I live for smart conversations that create space for novel ideas.
My name is Tara Gentile and I’m an entrepreneur, podcast host, speaker, and small business educator. I’m the founder and CEO of CoCommercial, a social and support network that connects small business owners with each other for honest conversations about what works.
I’ve been named one of the top 24 female podcast hosts for business owners on Entrepreneur. This website was named one of the 10 sites every entrepreneur should bookmark by The Muse. I’m a top Money & Life instructor on CreativeLive. I’ve spoken at SXSW, Pioneer Nation, Digital Commerce Summit, Blogher, and many more.
When I’m not working, you can find me in one of our national parks (my husband and I are planning to visit all 59 before 2027—we’ve been to 6), the climbing gym, hiking, running, or at the brewery. I’m a fan of science fiction (books, TV, and movies), temperatures in the 70s, and great sneakers.
I don’t have an MBA or any formal business education. I’m driven by curiosity and figuring out what will work for me based on what’s worked for others. My formal education is in religious studies—I love figuring out what people believe and how its affects their actions—and in music—I’m a natural performer.
