The Creative Agency Podcast is for entrepreneurs and people working in the creative industries. It's about finding success and work-life balance. While the focus is on web agencies, design agencies, and marketing agencies, the podcast offers lessons that can be applied to a wide range of business endeavors. Each episode tells the story of an agency owner or insider, how they found success, what mistakes were made, and what was learned along the way. Every episode also finishes with 3 important takeaways that listeners can apply to their own entrepreneurial endeavors.
The Creative Agency Podcast is produced by Chris Bolton, a digital strategy director living in Portland, OR. Chris is currently deeply involved in helping his brother's agency, Murmur Creative, grow and succeed.

Love this content! Keep it coming! I’m a creative marketing producer at Fox/Disney in LA dreaming of starting my own agency but totally blocked on where to start. Can you do an eps on this? Business basics. Maybe a compilation of interviews with various owners? Maybe this exists here already so I’ll keep listening!!
