Let me show you the EXACT steps to growing a profitable & sustainable agency WITHOUT you needing to be involved at every step of the way
Welcome To The Self-Running Agency Implementation Group
Dear Frustrated Agency Owner,
Let's cast our minds back to reason why we started our own agency - we wanted CONTROL, FLEXIBILITY and FREEDOM. All things we didn't have in our 9 to 5 job.
Yet as we grow, the need for control ends up being at the expense of flexibility and freedom - indeed all of our clients want us to work on their accounts and our staff are dependent on us to make all the big decisions and often frustrate us because they lack initiative.
Then something big comes along to derail us (e.g. Coronavirus) and we are back to square one!
Yet, it doesn’t have to be this way.
If you want to consistently grow a profitable and sustainable agency and one that is not 100% dependent on YOU, then you need to start by focusing on three key areas:
- Develop an exciting living plan (and get everyone in your team to want to come on that journey with you)
- Win a consistent flow of ideal clients
- Grow a team of responsible 'adults' who are accountable and take responsibility
Underpin this with the correct mindset (i.e. believing and knowing this is possible), and what this amounts to is ultimately building a Self-Running Agency: one that can grow sustainably and profitability whilst not being 100% dependent on you all the time.
Yet as the years pass, many agency owners find themselves further from this than ever!
Now many of us intellectually get this but putting it into practice is another thing altogether! That's why I created The Self-Running Agency Implementation Group and I'd love you to join us!
Inside the group you'll learn a system that lays out exactly WHAT you need to do... and WHEN you need to do it.
- You'll get your team stepping up and taking on responsibility and most importantly, taking some weight off your shoulders
- You'll get a consistent pipeline of ideal customers. No more FEAST or FAMINE
- You'll create an exciting plan that everyone is motivated and focused on delivering, and it will show you the pathway to regaining the flexibility and freedom that you so crave
And if you thinking "sounds great but I don't have time to join a group like this" (after all you already have an overflowing plate!) then the very first module of the programme is going to teach you how to win back 30-minutes a day which you can use to work on this programme which means working on your business.

I started my marketing agency back in the early 90s with exuberant youthful optimism of growing a business that would give me control, flexibility, freedom and fantastic income.
Over the next 11 years we grew the agency to have 25 staff with turnover of about £1.5 million. However, as we grew, instead of giving me more flexibility and freedom, I found myself tied to the agency more than ever - with clients and staff looking at ME to solve their problems and support them.
I recall sitting in my corner desk and every day having 'wheelbarrows of crap' pilled onto my desk. I was dealing with tasks that didn't excite me (quality, HR, finance etc.) and felt I was taking one step forward and one step back - all the while with this feeling that my success was dependent on continued growth.
Something needed to change!
What I needed to do was first change my mindset and then focus on getting the structures in place to build a self-running agency. Now that doesn't mean an agency that could run without me but rather, an agency that would be more self-sufficient and less dependent on me, giving me the flexibility and freedom that I so craved!
Instead of making that change, I decided the best option was to sell the agency and move on. Now I don't regret that decision but if I could do it all again or go back and give my younger self some advice, I would say "focus on building a self-running agency that gives you flexibility, control, income and freedom."
The Self-Running Agency Implementation Group is born out of my own experience as an agency owner plus my time working with many hundreds of agency owners over the past 14 years, and seeing that they all share in the same aspirations and challenges as I did. Challenges we tackle in The Self-Running Agency Implementation Group.
