Work Productivity & Energy Management - What We Lose Thinking About Time

“Have you considered better time management?” 

A hateful curse, often proffered when we’re “too busy”, “too behind”, too, too, too—

It’s not a poor observation. Time is our life’s currency. The one thing that we have to spend in almost any way we want, day in and day out. 

But time management doesn’t make you more productive. There is no recipe to chop up 24 hours 40 different ways to inch towards the 400 things you want to achieve in your lifetime.

Pitfalls of Performance Marketing or Revenue Share Marketing

I’m proud to say that we’re one of the few consultancies to provide Revenue Share agreements across marketing and sales campaigns with our clients. In an agency world of Pay Per Lead (PPL) and payment based on a percentage of Paid Advertising Budget, we’ve succeeded in often negotiating and aligning interests with our customers and partners around mutually beneficial outcomes. 

I’m equally ashamed to say that we’ve had more than our fair share of poor investments. Poor investments in companies, clients, and partners that we failed to properly assess and set up for success. 

Hiring Automation: Pre-interview with HubSpot Chatbot

Scaling our hiring pipeline as a core team of 2 consultant-owners has had it’s challenges. We went through the transition from go-with-your-gut hiring to a repeated-and-true hiring practice a few years ago. The critical learning for us was the data. We needed to ask all hires the same questions so we could learn about who they were without getting bogged down managing our talent pipeline.
