The Backstory

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
