Duped Phone Mockup

Duped is a Limited Series Podcast Hosted by Dr. Michelle Mazur and Maggie Patterson.

If you’ve ever felt like you’ve been duped by a celebrity entrepreneur or coach, or watched with wonderment while people do downright dirty things to grow their business, this is the show for you.

In Duped, we'll talk about the dark side of online business that you need to know about, and more importantly how to protect yourself from falling prey to these tactics and tricks.

About Your Hosts

We’re business owners, friends and two seasoned communications professionals who’ve got a lot of questions about the practices, strategies and tactics that are common in online business.

For years we’ve had a never ending, behind-the-scenes conversation in the DMs about everything we’re seeing and experience working in the online world.

Which is where Duped comes in.

Ripped right out of our DMs we’re going to unpack it all with a focus on:

why it’s happening,
what we need to know about it,
and most importantly what we can each do about it.

Let's do it.
