Lisa Messenger is the vibrant, game-changing founder and CEO of Collective Hub, an international speaker, best-selling author, and an authority on disruption.
She launched Collective Hub as a print magazine in 2013, with no experience in an industry that people said was either dead or dying. Within 18 months that print mag was in 37 countries.
Five years and 54 issues into the print magazine Lisa made the courageous move to “break” the very thing that she started, enabling her to iterate and pivot into something far more sustainable and vast reaching.
Collective Hub has since grown into an international multimedia business and lifestyle platform with multiple verticals across print, digital, events, and education – all of which serve to ignite human potential.
Lisa has also authored and co-authored 28 books, including in more recent years, the real-time, raw, and candid documentation of her life and business as it unfolded.
Lisa’s books and magazines were pivotal to me in realising there was a thing called ‘entrepreneurship’, and that you didn’t have to have it all figured out to start.
We speak about Lisa being unable to scale in the first iteration of her business, the incredible growth of Collective Hub and what she puts down to its success, what it felt like when she realised it was time to let go of her staff, big office and the print magazine to make sure Collective Hub survived, her ego, mental health, and what she wants to be remembered for when she’s gone.
