Phenomenon show if you own and run a service business

I stumbled upon this show by pure luck last week as I was researching the topic of productizing (which they cover as well) and really love the content since it’s designed for creative agencies like mine ! Can’t recommend these two veterans enough 👏🏼

Their advice helped my design business

I run a design studio in Toronto called Rayvn Design, and much of the business behind the designs we do has been greatly affected by the advice offered by these two marketing veterans - everything from pitching to pricing - these guys are my virtual mentors! Thank you.
