    #2226 Come Up for Air: How Teams Can Leverage Systems and Tools to Stop Drowning in Work

    #2226 Come Up for Air: How Teams Can Leverage Systems and Tools to Stop Drowning in Work

    Today’s guest is a systems guy. He founded Leverage, a growth agency that also does operations, which means they do all the stuff that you think about for growth– SEO, paid social, et cetera. But they also help teams organize their Slack channels, their CRMs, and even get to Inbox Zero.
    I invited him here to talk about how he systemizes and how he does this for clients. He also has a book on this topic. It’s called Come Up for Air: How Teams Can Leverage Systems and Tools to Stop Drowning in Work.
     
     

    Nick Sonnenberg is the founder of Leverage, an operational efficiency consultancy that is reinventing the way work gets done.

    #2223 Is the 100 year startup possible?

    Joining me is one of my favorite entrepreneurs. His name is Phil Libin. He was the head of Evernote which was a phenomenal company and I remember hearing Phil say he was building a hundred year startup. I really was excited about that idea and so I invited him here to ask him why he left Evernote.
    He has moved on to create a company that is making video so much better online. It’s called mmhmm. I’m going to ask him about mmhmm and also All Turtles, his startup studio.

    Phil Libin is the co-founder of mmhmm, which lets users make great video presentations.
