    11 days… no email… no calls… no business.
    Recently I returned from a vacation where I stepped completely away from my businesses.
    It was a powerful milestone to hit, and one that many entrepreneurs fear of committing to.

    187: Building a market research firm with Sarah Weise

    Today I chat with Sarah Weise of BIXA Research, a marketing research firm with clients like Google and other prominent Fortune 500 companies.
    I came across Sarah while I was doing my own research into... marketing research. Sarah teaches the LinkedIn Learning course on Market Research.
    There are tons of marketers and agencies out there, it was fascinating to learn what big companies will pay for and how much money is spent on researching how to do better marketing.

    186: Building a performance-based marketing agency with Adam Weiler

    186: Building a performance-based marketing agency with Adam Weiler

    On this week's episode, I have a chat with performance-based Amazon expert Adam Weiler of Sunken Stone.
    Sunken Stone is an Amazon consulting partner doing brand management services that help companies selling Amazon products to optimize their business and gain more presence.
    What's interesting about Adam's business is that it runs on a performance model, which means they charge on increased new revenue. This model is quite different from cash paying marketing services, which you can hear more about in the episode 'Why selling marketing services is stupid'.
