The CredoCast is a weekly podcast where I chat with agency founders, individual consultants, and entrepreneurs about their businesses and their expertise. The full archive of episodes is here.
Season 3 is live!
This season I’m taking a different approach to the CredoCast. Instead of just audio (you can still hear the just-audio versions within the posts and on iTunes), this time I’m doing videos, transcripts, and audio.
Here’s what we have lined up:
- Oli Gardner on Starting Unbounce with Six Cofounders
- Susan Wenograd on The Future of Advertising and Facebook taking on Google (and why Facebook might win)
- Ross Simmonds on Seeding Your Communities with Value for Promotion
- Rand Fishkin (11/2) on What’s After Moz and Audience-First Entrepreneurship
- Adii Pienaar of Conversio
- Nathan Chan of Foundr
- Brennan Dunn of RightMessage/Double Your Freelancing
- Ashley Ward of SEMrush
- Greg Gifford of DealerOn
- And a few more!

I have heard for years from a lot of people that they want to start consulting or own their own agency, but they don’t know how to do it. Well, there are a lot of people out there who know how to do it and those are the founders themselves.
So in every CredoCast episode, I chat with a founder or consultant about what they do, why they do it, and who they do it for. Every episode attempts to answer the following questions:
- How you knew it was time to do your own thing (or were you always an entrepreneur)
- How you got your first client(s)
- When you knew it was going to work
- When you officially formed a business and how you did that
- What’s been your biggest catalyst for agency growth
- What you would have done differently given your years of experience now
- What it would take to get you to go work for someone again
