How do I know Lee?
Lee Jackson is the founder of Agency Trailblazer. He helps agency owners fall back in love with their agency with his amazing community, workshops, and masterminds.
Lee and I are 2 sides of the same coin. Lee works with agency owners where I work mostly with solo business owners.
Lee and I had been bumping into each other around the web in various different groups and thought that we’d come together and dive into a few rabbit holes on a podcast together. See we both seem to have this uncanny ability to de-rail serious conversations.
When you listen to this show, you’ll hear us talk about NY accents, Jarvis from Iron Man and how that will work itself into web development in the future, how Lee got played from a fellow colleague, Phil Collins, and us being rappers.
Yes, the show gets quite off the rails, especially at the end. Yet, in the midst of all the tomfoolery, we unpack quite a bit of value for agencies and freelancers alike.o
Lee invited me onto his show and I invited him onto Live In The Feast and we had a number of jokes and laughs among all the amazing chat.
In this episode, I had a chance to talk about the following:
How to create memorable moments
In case you don’t want to read the rest of this, you can check out the full episode for all the details.
In the episode, I had a chance to talk about a variety of things including:
- What my first paid project and how I got it
- How to run your business and not letting it run you
- Have a vision for the business that you want to create
- Setting boundaries with your clients allow the balance you want in your life
Specifically, I talk about how to create milestones with clients and then when they are reached, make them memorable with your clients.
When I say celebrate, I don’t mean just send off an email. I mean create a memorable moment in the mind of your client.
The main takeaways from this show are:
- How to make yourself memorable
- How to work with clients that you want to work with
- The power of referrals
- My “2 Red Flag” Rule - Learn to trust your gut
Definitely go check it out.
