HI, MY NAME IS
And I have been in your shoes. I starting my agency in my upstairs bedroom in 2003 (that i built into a multi-million dollar agency)then retired from (worked 2 hours a week) in 2014 and successfully exited in 2016. While at the helm of that agency we won dozens of awards, to name a few; Entrepreneur Magazine Top Company Culture, Elite Business of the Year Finalist in 2015 and Partner of the Year for several years.
After successfully exiting my agency in 2016, I suffered a heart attack and took some time off to be with my family and build my strength back up. As soon as I was ready, I dove headfirst into creating the world's most comprehensive agency coaching program that focuses on the business side, not the technical side of the agency.
Although having amazing technical and creative knowledge helps; it is not what you need to build a 7 or 8 figure agency that's profitable and does not consume all of your personal time.
In most cases the technical and creative skills have a tendency to hold your growth back, the sooner you can evolve your skills to master sales, driving leads, KPI's, project management and critical business systems and processes the sooner you can work 2 - 4 hours a week while running your agency by the numbers like as did mine.
Nothing about building a successful agency that you can be proud of and support the quality of life you dream of is easy, but with the right tools, tactics and strategic guidance, we can cut years not months off of your agency's success journey.
