Episode 43: Working “On” the Business, Improving Audio & Video, Recent Agency Lessons & More!

Listen on:


Today's another solo episode. First, I dig into my efforts around improving this podcast and my video/audio. Just because I can code and am a web developer, doesn't mean I am good at THIS. But I am learning and working hard to slowly improve over time. A big issue for me, even though I have a decent mic, is background noise and static. But hopefully, I'm resolving that!

Beyond that, I talk about working on your business, expanding what I'm doing on YouTube, consistency, and some recent agency lessons! I think this could be a great new segment on my solo episodes… pulling apart and talking about recent lessons in my own agency — from the trenches! Enjoy!
