Time Tracking Tool

Use The Calculator To Establish How You Split Your Time

If you want to grow your agency you need to act like the CEO...

...and to act like the CEO you need to ensure you are spending the right amount of time working on the future of your agency. Yet many marketing agency owners get stuck on the client service hamster wheel of doom and have very little time to focus on the future and that leads to the feast or famine cycle and cash flow issues.

To avoid this, use this time tracking tool to establish how you're currently spending your time and how that needs to evolve so that you can become the CEO of your agency.

About Rob

I have 30+ years of commercial business experience. After beginning my career by working in various blue chip companies, I took the leap In 1991 to start my own marketing, PR and design agency. Over the next 11 years, I grew the business into an award-winning agency with 25 staff and revenues in excess of £1.5m. In 2002, I sold the business and then retrained to become a coach and mentor. Since forming Da Costa Coaching in 2007, I have helped over 350 agencies to grow in a sustainable, profitable and enjoyable way.

Why work with Rob?

David Miles

I have been working with Rob since founding my business 5 years ago. I chose him thanks to a personal recommendation from a colleague who had worked with Rob and also because he had experience of running his own successful agency in the past. Rob's coaching has helped me gain clarity on how I want my business to develop and given me a clear sense of direction. I can also think of several occasions where Rob's advice has enabled me to win a client I would not otherwise have won and also to charge higher fees than I would otherwise have done. I genuinely believe my business would not be where it is today without Rob's input.

I had to restructure my company after my business partner decided to leave, and the process of having to scale back and uncertainty of continuing in a new form was daunting. I love the project work and our team, but I was disheartened about running a business after a prolonged period of disruption. Rob challenged and supported me to explore how I wanted to move forward and helped me realize I want to grow the business again. He's also helped me develop better practices around team management and client contact. I'm delighted the business and I are now both thriving again - and this couldn't have been possible without Rob's careful input, advice and experience.

We were about to start the planning process for the year and wanted to work a business coach to be our conscience to ensure our plans became reality and actually make decisions! Rob is very straight forward (and sometimes tells us things we don't want to hear!). He provides sound advice in a clear and easy to understand way. He has a great insight into the stresses and strains of running an agency.
