My podcast, Build A Better Agency, is completely focused on helping you do just that. No matter how strong, big or well-known your agency is today — I believe it can get even better. My guests are all agency-centric or have an expertise in an area that I believe agency owners need to know more about.
Each podcast is 30-45 minutes long and always ends with some next steps that you can take immediately to implement something you’ve heard.
While my intention is that these podcasts are designed specifically for agency owners, I do believe that any agency leader will gain new ideas, fresh perspective and maybe a kick in the pants or two from listening.
We’ll release a new episode every Wednesday and here are the links that I believe will be pertinent to you.
