And you want to go on a one man more. Honor, your honor, I'd like to introduce to evidence his first statement and blah, blah, blah. There you go, good squashing over everything. Blah, blah, blah. We had to unwind it and unpack it. So now we've had to drag it out of you, which is our way. We screen a look, we have we have not brought people onto the podcast because they're bullshit artists. Steve, you know, what I'm talking about too from San Diego and some other guys. And we get asked, hey, we want to do this now. You are the farthest thing from a bullshit artist. In fact, you're one of those guys when we have to drag it out of you as consistently as we have to. It's indicative of the fact is that you've got it in the right perspective, which it's about, you know, I was part of a team. It wasn't about me. It was about our team. And quite frankly, I'm sure you lost some team members too. You'd like there's some guys that you wish. You could go out and have a beer with. Yep. Wait, and just our listeners know Kevin didn't reach out to us. Morgan and I and Javier were all represented by united talent agency and Javier and I UTA speakers, bureau to book corporate and different events for us.

And he started telling me about your military. And I said, Dave, you know, I mean, I love these guys. I mean, worked with your some of your amigos there. I said, but you know, we were focused on law enforcement. He said, oh, that's what you're going to like about this. He was in North Carolina wildlife officer. It's just perfect fit for the show here, and your story is like really none others that we've had on here. We hope to get general boykin on here at some point to talk about his participation in the Escobar hunt and all that.

I was on President Biden's PSD in Iraq in 2010 and general bork and son is Secret Service guy. And so he was running the detail and we were the cat team for president back then it was vice versa. Yeah, so yeah, we've got some, I don't know. He'd bring us in and wanted to see if we could throw our hatchet. Hey, but that's not the end of your story.

"The story from just the news dot com that we have been focusing on is just extraordinary. This organization that was in charge of this should be investigated by the new Congress. It's unbelievable if we're able to take back the house which I believe we will. Targeting voices and organizations that they don't like. Silencing and censoring them, it really makes you believe. It really makes you pegs the question. How many seats in the Senate? How many seats in the House of Representatives? How many governors mansions would we control if we had a fair fight? If we had a fair fight against the left, what would the country look like? Maybe this is one of the reasons why they have felt so confident going into these midterms. Maybe this is why they don't slow down and they're driving us off a cliff. Inflation open borders, how many other tricks do they have up their sleeve? From manipulating our elections to interfering directly into the discourse of the country. We saw it firsthand, we have the evidence we have the goods, I think our lawsuit would be very compelling. We have damages and we have direct off a cliff engagement on multiple social media sites and now we know why. The Department of Homeland Security cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency and the State Department inexcusably targeted my own social media. Right here, I'm a threat to the regime allegedly, supposedly I'm such a threat to the federal government because I ask questions about an election because we call out the nonsense of what's happening in the federal government, there's a list of us together, as I've mentioned, James Woods, James O'Keefe, Rick grinnell, Breitbart News, Eric Trump, gateway pundit Donald Trump Jr., all of us together being suppressed and silence, millions of times.

"The private consortium that reported election misinformation to tech platforms during the 2020 election season was in consultation with federal agencies, targeting several news organizations and its dragnet. So essentially, we have a third party allegedly a third party that exists to censor people that they don't like, such as James Woods, gateway pundit Donald Trump Jr., Tom finton, Jack posobiec. Myself, Mark Levin. James O'Keefe, Rick grinnell, Breitbart News, Sean Hannity. So the federal government pays this outside company to then censor voices they don't like. John Solomon joins us right now. John, how are you doing? I'm well. How are you? Great. Congratulations on this story. So walk us through it and we'll go from there. Enemies list. So the federal government is paying third party companies to silence voices they don't like including myself. Yeah, so in the 20 20 election, it was done free of charge. This consortium called the election integrity partnership, which was a couple of university couple of liberal groups. They did it on their own, but they created a system where the federal government could actually file a ticket like it was a concierge desk and you could politics saying I want this URL, these tweet censored and then this group would go out, be the intermediary, the third party that would go out and do the work on behalf of the government. After the election, the members of this consortium, the four private members, they all got grants and contracts from the new incoming Biden administration. So you see a reward for having done it. The breadth of censorship is absolutely jaw dropping.

Chris Farrell on the FBI Becoming a 'Preventative Arm'

"This comment from the agent that turning the bureau into an intelligence preventative arm laid a lot of the bad foundation? Exactly. It's exactly true. It's also giving them the counter terrorism mission is also, you know, and I'm thinking about not just the analytical investigative side, but the kinetic proactive side. It's too much of everything on top of everything. And when you're dealing with a counter terrorism mission, it is best left, I believe, to the military. And not to guys, it becomes a mishmash that's gotten out of control. And then when it's happening, conus when it's happening on continental U.S., who should be investigating terrorism leads in America, like if there's a new AQ building up cells, if the bureaus demonstrated its too corrupt and untrustworthy and using the Patriot Act against parents at school board meetings, who should be doing CT. Well, that counterintelligence activity or agency that I spoke of, that would really fall under their responsibilities in the feral view of how things should be reorganized. And it can be done very well. That's some very sharp, very good, very competent people out there. I've gotten old enough now that people that used to work for me many years ago are now in positions of authority. And you know, I know, I know the stuff that they're made of and they want to do the right thing and they want to protect America, and they want to protect civil rights. You've seen whistleblowers come out, there's been a string, almost two dozen now who have come forward and said the FBI is completely out of control. And they've been working with members of Congress trying to straighten things out.

So the first thing is, an investigative division is created within the U.S. marshal service. That investigative division would take on all the responsibilities, the criminal activities, the criminal investigative activities. So FBI does criminal investigations counterintelligence and kind of terrorism about the criminal stuff goes to the Marshals. Agents are vetted for lateral transfer into this from the bureau. In other agencies as well. But yes, because you're trying to stand up a new entity. And frankly, the more fresh or different blood you get in the better. And so there are other 1810s. That's the government's shorthand for law enforcement agent. Who want to come in, they're scrupulously vetted and then transferred in if they're not one of these political operators that we've been seeing in the FBI.

The FBI Is Trying to Stamp Out Truth-Telling Whistleblowers

"You know you're in a living in a weird time and a distorted phase of the culture when you can see in the media, all kinds of people bashing FBI whistleblowers. I mean, did you think you'd live to see this? You'd have FBI whistleblowers. Who are telling what's going on on the inside of this top police agency. And the media is beating up, not on the FBI. But on the whistleblowers. Wow. So we've come a long way since the 1960s when the there were all these left wing investigations of the FBI of the CIA, whistleblowers were hailed as heroes. They were brought forward. They were treated as truth tellers, which in many cases, of course they are. And I want to focus on one of those FBI, a real hero, but someone who's not getting the hero's treatment. So this is a guy named Steve friend. He's an FBI special agent. And this guy noticed that something funny was going on in the FBI. I mean, he could see it in the cases that he dealt with directly. He's a 12 year veteran of the FBI, he's a S.W.A.T. team member. And he has been suspended, stripped of his gun and badge, escorted out of the FBI office in Daytona Beach for what? Basically for blowing the whistle on the FBI. Now, let's look at why Steve friend is taking such a risk. He's taking a risk of basically blowing up his career, a career that is meant a lot to him. He's the father of two small children, and as I mentioned, he's been over a decade with the FBI. So why would he do that? Well, the reason he's doing it is because he is showing giving direct firsthand information about how this agency has gone rogue.

Can We Trust Our Intelligence Agencies?

"Get a lot of questions of you asking Charlie, how do you feel about the midterms? How do you believe we're trending? Things are getting better. They really are. I'm very worried about this Nord stream situation though. This Nordstrom situation could be a curve ball could be something that nobody anticipated in more ways than one. Tucker Carlson had some phenomenal coverage of this last evening. Let's start with cut 81 and walk ourselves through it. Play cut 81. But we should tell you that maybe not coincidentally today a brand new pipeline was unveiled. The pipeline that carries non Russian natural gas in roughly the same area as Nord streams one and two. This is called the Baltic pipe. It was inaugurated in Poland. It will carry natural gas from Norway through Denmark to Poland and other countries nearby. And it's likely to do very well since now, it has less competition. It's a very sad moment where I have to take pause and wonder if our government was behind this. It would be so unspeakably reckless and irresponsible. I am not saying our government is behind it. I'm asking a question. The same government that exaggerated to the extent of the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq invaded a sovereign country, lied about the origins of COVID, lied about the underlying problems of the 2008 financial crisis. Asking about all these things. Our government has not earned our trust. Latest report shows that our government is involved in over 23 proxy conflicts across the world, 23 proxy conflicts. Would our government actually make a very bold step to intervene in the sense of destroying an international pipeline?

The Nord Stream Topic Has Always Perplexed Charlie...

"Stream topic has always perplexed me. I never understood why there was a pipeline in the first place that was approved from Russia. To Germany and to all of Europe, I never understood that. It was never explained to me why it was okay to import natural gas, fossil fuels from a country that our own intelligence agency says it's our greatest enemy, and I'm no fan of Russia. I'm no fan of Vladimir Putin, but I do not think our posture towards Russia and looking at them as a geopolitical sworn enemy of the United States right now is anything. I don't think it's prudent. I don't think it's smart. I don't think it's mature. Churchill had the best predisposition towards Russia. He didn't like them. He understood them. He knew that they were brutal. He knew they were gangsters, but he needed them to defeat a greater evil at the time. I think that we could learn a lot from Churchill of how he handled Russia and how we very well could have a temporary, realpolitik alliance with Russia, understanding that their gangsters, their godless, they act as if they're soulless, and they're not exactly moral immoral government, but they could be very helpful in the coming conflict against the Chinese Communist Party. Anyway, never made any sense to me though, why the United States intelligence agency. Simultaneously tells us that fossil fuels are the worst thing ever that you guys all need to have electric cars needing to get rid of your SUVs. That Russia is the worst thing ever, and they allowed this project to be built from mainland Russia to Germany. By the way, there's plenty of natural gas in the Scandinavian countries. There's plenty of natural gas. In pockets of Germany, but this is the same sort of very inexplicable walking contradiction. Of the American ruling class, which is we hate the thing, but we're okay getting the thing from people that we're supposed to hate.

NATO 'Closely' Watching Baltic Sea Situation, Sabotage Suspected

"NATO official has told newsweek that the U.S. led western military alliance is carefully watching the Baltic Sea in the wake of suspicious incidents that targeted twin pipelines designed to bring gas from Russia to Germany. A NATO is monitoring the situation in the Baltic Sea closely. The NATO official said allies are looking into the gas leaks and exchanging information also with Finland and with Sweden as well. Sudden drops in pressure were first detected Monday by the operators of the Nord stream one and Nord stream two pipelines along with reports of leaks by the Danish energy agency and Swedish maritime authority. Both pipelines have been at the center of geopolitical geopolitical tensions surrounding Russia's war in Ukraine and neither were in operation at the time of the incidents, though they maintained gas under pressure within them. Late last month, Russia state run, Gazprom halted all supply through north stream one, which was completed in 2012, citing technical issues stemming from western wartime sanctions against Moscow, Nord stream two, which was completed last year, never entered into commercial operation as a result of the dispute over the conflicting Ukraine, the Danish defense command said Tuesday that prohibition zones quote unquote have been established around the site of three leagues that have been detected within the two pipelines and European nations have increasingly suspected that they were caused by foul play, Nord stream leaks and Danish military anyway.

When they decided that the COVID here and all of a sudden, all these police officers left, the ones that had tenure, the ones that knew what they were doing. The ones who had the type a personality and then things changed. What happened is that they have been recruiting people in the old days ex GIs. Well, guess what? Things change. And now the people in charge, if you get in a fight before you go into the department, you're not going to make it in the academy. You're not going to be invited, okay? They want people who are passive and do nothing and follow orders. Okay? People are dramatically smaller now. Why? Because they had to take certain things out of the test. The recruitment for all departments used to have to drag a guy out of a car. It's a dummy. It weighs a 160 pounds. Oh gosh, that's too heavy. Let's not do that anymore. Okay? They just have to climb a 6 foot ball. That's not, no, no, that doesn't, we don't do that anymore. And so on and so on. Okay, people who boxing, they took it out academy, okay? Ellie county shares apartment. They run the academy for every small agency within the county. Now here's how it works, okay? You put those softs in positions. And then, like when I worked the station, you put in a policy where if you stop a black person in Compton and he goes, no matter what you did or didn't do, and he goes to your death sergeant and says, this person called me a racial name. That goes in your book, okay? Two or three of those and guess what? You'll never promote. You're considered a bad guy. All right? So guys, stop working, and more retirement. Here,

"To stick there, but it won't mean the same damn industry. It's a completely different industry at that time. And so that is how I know how hard it is and all I want to do in my backpack on my website my tagline is we make your life easier. That's all I do. And so when I get to make an entrepreneur specifically an agency owner's life easier, you've been more time with their friends families or whatever they really want to do and have really made an impact in their quality of life. That to me is how I define success for me in this coaching business. So the reason I tell you that is not for any other reason than your purpose is your purpose. It's not my own, if not Stephanie, if it's not Mike, nobody else is yours. And when you just heard my purpose, it is probably contradictory to most hell, 90% of all of the coach's purposes. They all do what's called the multiplier. The one to meeting. You hardly ever talk to them one on one. Okay, that's nothing wrong with that. More power to you. They make a lot more money than me too. And I don't care. So back to success. That is my purpose. That is how I define success. So for you as an individual, think about that. Is it? So you can stop working if they do 50 because you know your parents are gonna have some health issues, you won't take care of them? Because you have a special needs child that you know you're going to have to put a lot of money back because they're not going to be able to get out and perform in the workplace like other people without special needs. And you're going to have to really financially support them for the rest of their lives. Is it that you don't care about any of that? You're never going to have any kids, and all you want to do is surf 80 hours a day of week and work 20 hours a week. So whatever that is for you. That is how in my opinion you define success and a good coach will help you achieve whatever your definition of success is. I am so damn happy that I met you. I am so damn heavy that we had this episode too because that is just all that is brilliant. I love that as a coach we're able to take our stumbling blocks and turn them into stepping stones for the next wave of entrepreneurs. And our definition of success like you said, it's very different. And I even loved how you even future paste it as far as where you are right now. Your day to today your a day in the life of you right now is going to be very different down the line 5, ten, 15 years, and so you have to start thinking about who will you be taking care of who will be taking care of you and all the different things that you want to have because if there's one thing that we can be certain, right? They always say it's death and taxes. Exactly. Exactly. Lee, as I said, it's been an absolute joy and just talking to you geeking out with you. For those folks that were just like me scribbling down everything that you had to say, let's give him a moment to breathe. Can you tell them where they could find you? What's the best place to find you? Well, I try to make things very, very difficult, okay? So marketing agency coach dot com. It should be pretty easy to remember hopefully there. My email is Lee at legal dot com. And so again, making things very difficult there. But okay, what a lot of people start with my Facebook group. And so if you are on Facebook, do a search for what's called agency nomads, and that is going to be what we do is we build successful agency owners that can kind of Walmart and do what they want on their time frame with their amount of money that they want. I love it. You probably heard a pause because I was looking at it just right now. I was like, I need to be in this agency, nomads group. Like that's what I gotta do right now. All right, so friend that's all that we have today, but don't worry, we have even more incredible shows and amazing guests just likely coming up in our next episode we'll be talking to the amazing performance coach and motivator Jared Robins followed by Kelly noble mirabella on chat marketing and then Kate Scottish.

"To have. And really, when you sit down with them and you say, okay, well, what would that do for you? For what purpose? They're like, well, I don't know. If I have that much money, what I really do with that, what I really travel, what I do this with my family and whatnot. And a lot of times it's like, what values are most important to you in the context of your career in this business in this agency that you're building so I love that you start with that first. You know, Simon syndic start with your why. What we learned a leadership style at my agency is called leadership style. That's kind of a hybrid free simulate Jim Collins and the now keep what used to be the infused self leadership team. So kind of a hybrid of all that is what we built and it's called a group leadership style and I'm telling you that works wonders is wonderful. I think having your team aligned with you as an agency owner, what your values are and making sure that that's in line in the vision that you're building is going to be super helpful as well. So I love that you're bringing that into your practice. What are some other big challenges do you see that agencies are running into that a coach like you and your firm can really help them with? Right now, the top of the list is almost always going to be diversified leads and drive more leads. But in this climate, the number one problem that I'm facing at least the number one problem that I'm working with directly with my students is hiring. We've had a very difficult time finding the good talent and that in my opinion is as a result of what I kind of coined as the third digital gold rush. I actually have an article for Forbes magazine about this. And COVID kind of kicked off the third digital gold rush. The first one was the 2002 thousand back whenever they had Internet was all kind of website for coming out of the gate. The second one was the social media revolution in 2008, 7, 8, 9 ten right there. And then as a result of having to go having forced to go virtual, I don't know what the name of it might be. It might be the zoo, Russia or whatever, because not everybody knows the term, everybody usually zoom. But it definitely kicked off the third gold rush. So when it comes to driving revenue and profits, my students are crushing it right now. We're constantly jumping our prices up and adding positioning ailments to increase that and adding products to increase it. But number one problem we're facing right now is finding reliable and skilled talent that has been a challenge. Now we are overcoming and I've got a great little hiring process where overcoming it. But I guess a good way to kind of validate that or some basic numbers pre COVID whenever we would use my hiring process and we would run for a few ads. Wherever we got the candidates, it would typically take about a week or two and a couple $100 to get a 50 to 75 pretty pretty strong candidates in and out of that, we would whittle them down to my own processable elimination and would eventually get to the top three to 5 and we'll make our final decision. Well, now it's taking about a month and a half to get 50 to 60. Wow. Mid middle mid level candidates. And after we go through the process of elimination, a lot of times we're down to like there's only one left and we have to go through it again. Another 5 or $600 or even one of my two spending was $1500, just trying to get three or four top tier candidates, right? And so that has been a major hurdle that we have been working on aggressively with actually four of my 101 coaching students. And the second one is almost always lead sourcing lead diversification supply and demand dictates everything. So the more leaves you have, the more control you are of your business. And so we've been working aggressively on that we're always testing out really cool lead sources and things like that. We've got some really cool stuff coming down the pipe on that. So those are probably at the top two. A third one right next to it. I put a 304 bed for number three, which is not having it not having a sale system or not having a project management system. They're getting healed on scope creep or they're losing, they're even or they're leaving 7 figures a year in revenue on the table because they don't have basic follow-up. I mean, and I mean basic, I am not talking about a hardcore sales floor, $50,000 process. I'm talking about a few grand, I put in some emails and follow up systems super simple, but over time, it's an additional 7 figures a year in your account, right? So those two are always right there at the top as well. Yeah. That makes a lot of sense in the it sounds like this is something that you've been working with clients on for a very long time. I'm fascinated by the trying to hire new talent and the struggle with that. What do you think it's harder to find top tier talent? Is it because of remote work preferences or benefits or just people at the hearing, hey, if I can consult, I could make more. I actually had a little bit of combination on all of those in there and if I was going to put them in an order of priority one and the number one by far is demand, right? I mean, you could literally be about anybody right now. Quicker job doing about anything, go take a course and content writing or whatever it might be, get out to upwork and fiber or wherever it might be and get job right now. So it's not terribly difficult to break into the digital marketing space right now. And of course, the people with experience, the ones we're going to be looking for are in extremely high demand. And so they're just like I would poach them to do. They're going to Jack it. They're going to Jack their prices up, because of supply and demand, right? And I don't blame them at all. You know, but that is a portion of it. My sample size is too small to get exact percentages here. But also guess that's 25, 30% of it. Another 25 to 30% or maybe even more is actually the paradigm shift in workforce expectation levels in mentality as a result of COVID meaning they have become extremely complacent and like sitting at home in their predominant, and they don't want to give that up at all. And no, no, no, this has been a part of the interview process. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Like, as if refusing to come, I will not come into the office even though I have two miles down the street. I use it to shift it. Yeah, it's now I feel like my time and effort sitting in traffic. If I could find something else where I don't have to subscribe to that, then I'm more open to that. So it makes a lot of sense. You have values have definitely been impacted by what's happened. Definitely, definitely been shifted. And I think that's a double edged sword. I think it's great that we're leaning towards quality of life and maximizing our time. I also think that the double edged sword on that, you sacrifice teamwork in our office communications. There's no substitute leaning over and say, hey, Stephanie. Remember that time you did that on the campaign, how did you do that at home? That's it. Oh, great. That's super easy, right? It's like, hey, I try to explain that on slat. There's 15 minutes. Oh, God. You don't work for me. Hey, can you do it in the loon video or hop into Zoom next? You know, this is 20 minutes later. We still haven't gotten a donor. We do eventually get it done, but what would have taken literally 60 seconds in an office just can't 20 minutes. So in reality, it feels like you're saving time, but the reality is is you're really not saving time. You're just more comfortable. So they're in the last 22 that whole whole scenario. Again, we'll see how this plays out long term. But, you know, work out of my house and I love it. But when you're a little bit earlier in your career, sometimes, not like in my opinion most of the time, it is definitely better to surround yourself with very high skilled high at the high integrity people. And you can only do that and sitting next to them in a workplace environment. So don't understand underestimate the value of doing that. And I don't say we go back.

"Good. So hey, let's start by talking about the work that you're doing right now. What makes an agency a great fit for the type of coaching that you and your agency has to offer? We've actually broken this down into four different agency categories that most of the people who come to me come at me when they're in a transition point between these four different stages. First one being, I think everybody's kind of familiar with it, the freelancer face that typically is zero to a 100,000 in revenue. It's the freelancer himself or herself and a friend or two or a couple of freelancers elsewhere working together. From there, they have a lot of time to have a hard time getting to the next stage, which is what I would call the successful freelancer. That's to where you get from the 100,000 up to about quarter million, maybe 300,000 mark, it's the freelancer evolving into the solopreneur. And that solo typically has a small stable of freelancers that they can outsource stuff to. And then from there you go to the small agency and the small agency up to the small to medium agency. Most people come at me whenever they are at their wits end on the freelancer face trauma to that solo premier and get some basic systems and processes hiring products, competitive advantages, positioning elements, things like that. By far the most common phase is whenever they're in that it's about 600,000 to a $1 million revenue and you're starting to run into what's called the glass and the glass ceiling is in effect, basically the systems and processes that it takes to replace dynamic entrepreneur in their business. And that's also where most businesses most smaller agencies have a fail point and get into that next level. So when the pain point gets high enough they are typically reach out to me and one of those transition points. I love that you mentioned the pain point because isn't that so funny that most entrepreneurs were kind of like, you know what? I've been growing my business and it's been doing this and we reach this, but I'm doing the same thing, but for some reason I'm not getting to where it is that I need to be, and so they wait until things get so, so so bad. And they're like, this is when I need to reach out to Lee and his team. So then Liam, I think the best question to ask then is how will they know when they're ready to find a coach? Do they need to wait until they fall into the pits of despair or what are some red flags that they need to be like, hey, you know what? Now's the time. I hate to admit it, but usually it's only as a result of the pain getting so high. So let me give an example. Entrepreneurs are not far with some of the most gifted and most brilliant people on the planet. They can literally do just about anything. They set their mind to. And in both cases they do. That's also the problem is that they can do anything that they set their mind to, so they think that they should do everything that pops into their mind. And so eventually you'll get to the point where you realize that's bad. And the pain of trying to break through that mindset in that glass ceiling will literally cause you, like we're in my case, I had a heart attack. So stress, you'll start to feel tugging on your heart. Your wife or your spouse or your partner will start asking how come I never see you or you wonder why you didn't know that your child was playing soccer? And they've been playing soccer for two years. You know, things like that are the reasons where people come start to realize, man, you know, I have gotten myself into a hole here, and I need to get out and this is over my head. And so whenever you kind of get to a point where a lot of things in your personal life are becoming dramatically more difficult because you just don't have the time or energy to put into those because you're so stressed out at work. Or you've been stuck at a revenue model for revenue like a 600,000 just can't quite break through that 600,000 or you can't quite scale past that $1 million. Those are typically pretty telltale signs that you need to reach out and hire a coach. And I would love to be your coach if you're out there looking for one. I love that. You know, there's this saying where most problems in business usually arise for you to confront them because they're usually a problem that's a rising at home. I think our Pokémon go with our listeners right now. Well, it's true because as a matter of fact in my coaching calls, the very first question I asked in my life I'm a very complex simple but detailed discovery phase. And people are a lot of times shocked at the very first question that I ask in that place and basically that question is, what do you want to be when you grow up? And so that is, do you want to quality of life business? Or do you want to go big? Because every decision we make from that point forward is going to be dictated by a bad, the niche for your credit. Starting with what do you want to be when you grow up? And so don't underestimate the power of the house, right? It should be your sanctuary. It should be everything that dictates everything in your life. And so if it's happening at the house, you better listen to it because it's not going to go away. If anything, it'll be worse. And so just listen to it and make sure you know what you want to be when you grow up a lot of times. I love it. Thank you. I'm liking these offense. Mike, are you doing that? I know, right? Basically. The silent silent listener. Where's the sun coming in? I love that you bring all of that up, especially when you said quality of life business. And I think even when I speak to my clients, we call it, what kind of lifestyle do you want, right? Because you could have a successful business, but are you now not taking vacations? Do you have to get permission? What's going on? I would love to have elaborate on my. Everybody seems like yeah, I love it, please. You know, everybody has a different definition of about everything now. So now they can say, when I say quality, like, this is what it means to me. I also want to put together four different definitions of agency growth. Because again, everybody, all of us marketing guys or coaches or gurus try to come up with their own terms, next thing we know is everybody's confused because nobody knows what the hell anybody's talking about. So at the end of the day, here's what this means, okay? Quality of life, business means this that you build a half a $1 million agency, the goal is to never work any more than 40 hours a week and the profits very hot. Meaning that in that half a $1 million business, we squeeze profit to get you to making to where you're putting in your bank account 200,000 a year, the other 300,000 goes towards taxes labor or just all the operational cost. Now, if you're going to go big, that formula is completely different. So let's say you get to the half $1 million mark, but you're willing to go big. Now instead of making 200,000, you're going to be making about 75,000 because that 125,000 has to go back into the business to diversify lead sources to 70 partnerships continuing education a million trust me. You'll always have something to spend money on and you will, if you're trying to go big. So it's just a strategic decision you have to make up for. Do I really want to go big and be the next Bill Gates or do I want to live on the side of a mountain that Costa Rica make it a good look? Most of the time, the answer is, I want to live on the side of the mountain in Costa Rica and make a good living. Most of the time, because people have a tendency, my experience is more in the U.S. so when I say that it comes from here, especially in the U.S. with the cowboy mentality, go big or go home, right? And I personally did go big and I didn't like it, so I went home. Okay, I sold it. You know, I came out really good on it. The minute that I got to, you know, I had 40 plus employees, 17 countries, 43 states, entrepreneur, Forbes magazine, you name it. I mean, I think by most people's standards, I'd very much achieved success. I got there, and I never got to talk to my clients anymore. Which is what makes me tick. I love helping other entrepreneurs. All I was dealing with was my leadership team, my project managers, my attorneys and CPAs and referral partners and don't get me wrong. I love working with them as well. But is this not as fun for me personally? Like, what I want to do when I grow up? I enjoy doing is actually being in the trenches with entrepreneurs and helping. I absolutely love it. And what makes what makes me tick. So you have to make that decision. You know, do I want quality of life? I'll be stressed out. I don't want to do what we did and get divorced and have a heart attack. I want to relax a little bit making good living. I'm not trying to conquer the world. So make that decision up front and you'll see that a lot of the decisions act that become a lot easier. See, that's real talk there. That's real great advice because more often than not people's definition of success is because they saw someone else do it and they think that that's the quality of life that they want.

"And stephanie lou lou. Goodness gracious so. I knew and i am the host of agency accelerated and one of the things that i love about being the host of agency accelerated that i spent last decade and a half deep in the trenches of agency life. Though i have lived. I lived as a practitioner. Pitching client doing all the things. And the reason why i enjoy doing the accelerated because i geek out with people about what it means to be a part of the ad agency world and things that are changing also the host of the show the host of the show the mike all puts all the show notes and all the things i just show up and ask the question you interview. I guess which is a like. I said it's it's something that's fun to do because i get to ask questions unrelated to the other shows do mostly about live streaming very cool. So what kinds of conversations do you have conversations that we hell on agency accelerated usually extends around what's changing in the landscape of advertising and marketing in general. And so i think the past few episodes we've been geeking out about like artificial intelligence and algorithms and tech and things that most people they might pay attention to their peripheral but they haven't really dove deep into the show for me has really been carrying my our to really learn at all the questions that i've always wanted to know with an expert. That's actually in the field of some of those experts. Say john lee from microsoft advertising and in that episode. You'd actually really here. Batik out. Because his background was in search engine marketing. Which was how. I started in advertising as well into learning from him as far as how. They're helping their clients shift their budgets embrace experimenting different campaigns i would say also learning about shifting and consumer behavior and how his team handled that and passes on it. Information to the team is always interesting. It was interesting. What's been your favorite show. So far my favorite show would have to have been with end chain from the supercharge until we. Because of the fact that when i think of artificial intelligence i think of it as being will smith and ai and things that are just so far out of your reach or super expensive and interfere with their. There's this whole methodology and process to it that doesn't make it attainable or agencies or one person teams and really had a scaling grow your business and even after that episode i had reached out to her personally and i said hey. There's something that i'm working on. And i wanna know like jim siegman actually helped me with this and if so. How do i integrate into my process. Because i find that if i could work smarter not harder. Pardon the cliche. But it's true rate if i could do this faster. And get better results by leveraging artificial intelligence than show me the way looks go higher level for a second who is the show ashley. Four i'd say agency accelerated is for agencies that are looking to scale and grow. So if you're like a one person agency maybe have a couple of virtual insistence that you're working for or you're hoping just gaels virtual. That's a really great way to do that. Or if you're already an established agency with let's say two to five people already on your team and you're still struggling to gaylon grow then. This is a really good podcast. Listen to because we talked about all the different ways that you could delegate work smarter and what tools really that you can use to help you provide more services and really just drive your bottom line. What else do agencies typically learn from the show agencies and they're tuning into this show. They start to learn more about what's happening right now like. Let's say the interview that we did with n. Chang and the supercharge have the fact that like artificial intelligence is here now. it's already being used. Some people don't even really realize that. I think in my circle and my social media feeds we hear about artificial intelligence helping agencies and entrepreneurs right marketing copy landing page copy but the actually leverage artificial intelligence to develop a strategy and really understand your consumers psycho graphics demographics learn and uncover more about their values than their objections to certain services. I find that interesting. People are already doing that all you really have to do. But they said before is come up with a methodology the right question than a data scientists pulls out for. You know it's so interesting and it kind of ties into the last thing. I wanna talk to you about. Which is something. You've talked to me about many times. The importance of ongoing learning. Can you speak to that. Why is it so important that we keep learning particularly agencies agent is always important to learn about what's changing which shifting in consumer behavior and not only just what's happening in the us but really what's happening in different countries. Obviously i already said that. The episode end chain is my favorite. Because you know. She's in thailand and she sees us going on in the market over there and sometimes even katie faulk from e can live. We were talking about light. Union mean yes. It's taken off here in the us. But it's been around forever in asia with my trim shopping and all the different things. And i think as agencies it's important for us to understand what other brands are doing. What other agencies are doing how people are embracing social media just media in general and then how we can be part of that conversation to really capture that market. Thank you thank you stephanie. And make sure that you subscribed agency accelerated on apple or you prefer podcast player..

I of course would love to have that so much to learn so much thought leadership here in such beautiful insight and terro how advertising has evolved over time in things to still stay true to ray. And though having said that allen we've been talking since the offset the show about these amazing advertising campaigns that you've accomplished and i know so often you must have dealt with tight deadlines and limited by. What's your secret. How do you succeed in the face of such adversity has adversity every job fresher. Advertising is no different and you know like some people would say all you know so competitive. Gimme a business is not competitive pan. I'll show you business out of business. So what you do. Is you deal with it every day. I've never missed a deadline. Because i get things done i mean not a procrastinator. Some people get something in a way to last minute to do it. I do the first minute. Not make sure it's right. I'm ready to do the next job. There was a young man. That were trusted was the Procrastination his desk had since piled up like this and he was always late. Oh yeah i'm gonna get to that. I'm gonna get he procrastinated. Procrastination can't so. I figured Bright boy and i thought it's got to be some way to solve it so i said tim. Okay let's put this in your mind. Make believe that. Your desk is nothing but hot coals and everything you put on Burst into flames. And you'll never have it again in. You won't be able to do your do okay. Just think about that. Within two weeks his desk was clean and he was getting work out just took that mental picture in his mind that a desk is dot place for storage just opposite but things in your brain and get it out that smart. That's smart. I feel like sometimes people just need a shift in perception as a content creator when i first started because still doing ad and the social media work for clients. I would have my desk. And i would do that and then eventually live streaming or being an mcse host. I would have to be on camera and at that point i had to separate the two. This is my work machine. This is entertainment. Machine and whatever's on this mac and one mini is only for the show and whatever's here is only for work so i try not to mix the to consider detention. Yeah doing a good job. So let's make you in l. I mean honestly it has been such a pleasure to talk with you and hear your stories and get your perspective on the advertising agency life. Where if if we were to direct our loyal listeners our viewers. Can you tell folks where to find. You is the best place on me and you learn more. You talked about lincoln the vignettes.

"Miracle. Wow that was brilliant. Alad please can. You tell us willis a story behind that ad. Okay interesting story. The idea hit me at four o'clock in the morning and i called up switch Did all the time it crazy hours into picked up the phone. Allan said lowest among should have great idea ideal. Talk about it in the morning. And that's how as a monk was born and it wasn't uneasy sell a lot a lot of young commercial so smart and all it must border immediately. Well the f. company was very religious and he fought thought. He would be excommunicated if he were to do that commercial. And i said no. It's it's human is pleasant. There's nothing wrong wrong with it. denault home. sorry. I'm putting my foot down. That's not going on the air so it said what would make you change your mind. He said the only thing that would get me to change. My mind would be a letter from cardinal. Cooke saying he'd liked the commercial. Well i always had friends in politics in everything. And i got a letter from cardinal cook and he said he thought the commercials amazing he said it personalized the church which is something very. Were look looking to do. And it's really about a miracle or Religious miracle so. I brought the letter to david kern. Who's the chairman. At the time. He said oh okay you did. It did it. Took on a life of. Its own a lot of the work that i've done. I'm not a big promoter of myself electric promote work but And the clients. But i don't like google Believe it or not. I'm coming shy so a lot of the work that i do people see and they talk about and it's not. It's not something that i fuel. The fires like a lot of agency has do is just the way i'd say. Yeah you wanna let the work speak for itself. I do have to say that. I love that you you did it back down with the idea the concept and you really came to the client and you said what would make you change your mind because it's so often clients don't have that same vision that we do. As far as how campaign can impact other people or they have different filters and beliefs around dead and for you to go out there. Get exactly what he needed in order for him to change his mind. That's dedication and i feel like every agency person should should do that versus just like okay. We'll scrap that idea. Let's let's do what we can for the client in really successful that that brings up something that i talk about on people talk and that is a big mistake. Agencies make is the give a client what they want but Not necessarily what they need. Sometimes what they want is what they need. But sometimes it isn't and when cases like that. Come up dan it's up to you. They're coming to you for your expertise and if you don't exhibit your expertise Wire they they're okay. Exactly which is. It's not always that easy because sometimes you have clients that. Just don't get it so than than what you do while you just gotta hope and pray and recent with them. I've always found if you give them good common sense reasons. If you're dealing with somebody bright they're gonna get it if if you're not don't ever get it find yourself another client because they'll drive you crazy in you'll you'll never have anything to show for it so you kinda dig yourself into a hole and i would never let that happen. I can say in all my years in the business. I have never done anything bad. Not not everything was stellar but there was nothing that you would. Yeah i would definitely say that. That is sage advice. In fact reminds me of that. Famous henry ford quote where he says you know if i had asked people what they wanted they would have just said faster horses really when you're working with a brand that is unknown to really make them go unforgettable and make them memorable. Sometimes you just have to break the norm and do a pattern interrupt and they. That's as you said. That's where they have to come to you for your expertise and trusts you. And having that agency client s that repore is always important because if the client always knew what they needed than they would have done it themselves. Why would they bring us. A lot of them. Are doing that today. Does why advertise. So it's it's like a faded copy of another faded copy of the messaging in the campaign. I was just talking to a good friend about this. And as like literally if you took this landing page and you swapped out the logo it would sound like any other conference on there. So what's the difference. That makes the difference so always helpful to know phil l. in another famous campaign that you behind twenty years ago is the famous. If you see something. Say something. And i really i would love to know how that campaign came at bow but also how you manage to hold onto that client for so long okay. The campaign came to be on nine twelve the day after the horrendous attack on the world trade center and i was office feeling really bad just like everybody else and frustrated on just wanted to do something and the only thing that i know how to do really well as advertising so i said to myself well what what can i do could have a lasting effect because i i knew a lot of my contemporaries. Were going to do very nationalistic. Kind of stuff you know were. Americans are americans which is fine. But that's gonna make people feel good for the moment. I wanted to do something that had left us. Fact so i've thought about it. I said well. What's what's the problem and the problem is people particularly in. New york are complacent. Were we when we go with never never looked at anybody size. Look down what's going around because somebody might look back at you and we grew up that way and now things had to.

Ppc was that we had to keep tabs on what the other advertising platforms redoing we we would sit on the quarterly calls for facebook to see how it was impacting us and not only that but we would sit on the calls for our competitors rate and what was going on and so i think this is definitely for all of you that have only been focusing on one area.

"Now that we're talking about super metrics tie those two together and there you go. There's your mother reporting weekly reporting all the different things that you need in. If anybody's a super nerd. Like i had been in various times in my life including right now. Probably probably a where. My nerd guard is if you play in things like power. Bi rate you can take the the real time or however often the frequency of data polls that you run through super metrics and then mary that output with a power and then creating a dashboard that you can just go into. You know is up-to-date all that in graft out for you. I mean just right. I've ever. I once had a key. Stakeholder he was he was the cmo of agency and we just gave him one link. It was like one linked to rule them all and whenever he just needed to see data for whatever meeting you is going to be into. That was like his. That was his super genius. Is like being able to go into i. Will i have real time data. I just click on my custom. Personalized link boom. Here you go is howard performing in all the different things. It was cool but also kind of kind of terrifying. 'cause you're something half you're like you know all right. I think they're in my view. Something like that provides a deeper layer of trust with the client to say. Hey i'm confident enough in the work that i'm doing that you have real time. They would have they would have access regardless to the to the platforms but to have it all in one place to say. Hey you check it whenever you need. You need to wait for me to send you a week reporter report. Whatever that cadence looks like. It's just there right. If you see something that that you should. You want to have a conversation about then. Let's talk and that's that's what that's for. My last two tools would be remiss not to mention are are very specific to the the search advertising space I think they're both doing some things with display on the google aside in somewhat with metropolitans network that would be optimized and at allison so at alice's is primarily about ads in automating the process of testing ads right in putting multiple variations in play. And then having that you know using machine learning and just so one for algorithms that that team is built to identify winners automatically pause create new variations in. Move on based on input from you. The kaiser pain manager. And there there are additional flavors and things going on within that tool as well like you know if you do a lot of ad testing and you would like to to kick it up a notch. Check out at alice's and then optimizing really started with scripts so you know paid search scripts that you can plug into google and microsoft advertising. They started there and that's really the foundation of that tool but they they continue to build out. Add to it and you know at this. Point are providing amazing tools at a really cheap.

"Leveraging the tools that are available in a facebook ads google ads and a mugshot advertising as it relates to the data the we all as platforms have say like market and the light interesting. Sometimes you don't realize what you have until it's taken away but you know so so people are motivated rate and so good point. Good point i. So i'm at certainly heard from many ad agencies as well as former colleagues of mine how dramatically facebook advertising in particular has gone up as far as cost and down in its effectiveness in so for agencies where that was once their primary service. Would you recommend so. This is something i've been following along quite closely with so you know on reddit. There's various subjects that are that are very active. you know there's our ppc our digital marketing digital advertising. There's a number of them just can't tell you how many conversations there been over the past certainly twelve months regarding facebook both in like. Oh my god what's happening with my data audiences that are used to target aren't working anymore. But even on kind of the foundational management aspect of like accounts getting randomly blocked. Gosh reason and then you know facebook spaces again. I'm not here to knock facebook but like yeah it's it is like chat lead and then you you were lucky goldstar for if actually talked to a person and there's a lot of pent-up frustration so all of that being said when i a tickets the back and i look at it it's telephone diversification while i know that there's a lot of people would agree with you on that and that is to say yes. Facebook advertising has been this huge important thing in the marketing. Mix now for several years. It's changing stop going away the it's certainly changing. And if if you hadn't seen the writing on the wall or you hadn't already been thinking about diversification of channels that needs to be at the top of your list for priorities right now to say okay. We have facebook. it's different and we may not be able to get as much mileage out of it as we did before the world. Can we take our learnings right on. Facebook rose can we take that learning both through creative but also targeting things that applied elsewhere and so of course you could ramp up on youtube on on on display through google. The microsoft audience. That word right. Our native platform is another area where you could take that..

"We will is massive in not to be ignored. I would also argue that advertising In that sense is the same and so It depends on the country The market for sure but you know in the us specifically looking at pc's or thirty six percent of search market share. Maybe in the twenty s. i think in in in the uk and places like australia etc. So it's it's a it's not a small number of searchers but then it's it's search yes but we all have a native advertising product. That's a part of the same platform so much. Like google search display now youtube and a number of other things. are native advertising platforms microsoft audience network. And so it's a one two punch it search. It's native and that's that's that's a lot of what our our our mindshare is. Right now is talking about the entire consumer decision journey. An howled is search interplay with native or display or social and all these other channels now. Does it all come together brilliant. Yeah one of the one of the things that i love about your role and even what you had shared in the green room is that you have been on the agency side right now. And then you've also been on the client side where your in house and the now you're out the platform side and so you have all of this knowledge all of this feedback that you're getting and because you're the conduit between the consumer in this case the agency and feeding that information engineering team that is also help for. I always appreciated the monthly or the quarterly calls that i would have with my advertising partners in actually have someone to talk to. Which for those of you that are watching agency accelerated. If you've ever tried to advertise on one platform you might have always just got an ai. And so it's nice. Have someone like you where we could really reach out. Offer our insights our workflow and how to make our lives a lot easier because more often than not we have clients that. Come to us with budget and really. I need to spend this budget. I'm accountable for this goal. And i'm i'm lucky to be in the role that i am in if i look at the three predecessors hub to me in this role for microsoft advertising specifically we all have something in common in. That is a strong history that is both platforms side but also be that in an agency were in house somewhere and actually having been hands on with with the work that were out there talking about in that shared language that shared just comment on that experience..

"My i love display advertising social media advertising and having owned his own agency for years. I'm telling you this was a match. Made in. heaven is a genuine fanatic for all things digital so. Hey john welcome welcome. Welcome thank you thank you thank you. Yea this industry has been my work home as aware for fifteen years and so the same age as my daughter and so it's easy to keep track of. That's that's clever. When i think about how long i've been married i know like oh. It's my daughter. Plus one plus ran. And that's how it works out so jon question for you. Can you start off sharing more about what you do for the advertising arm of microsoft and what they currently offer absolutely so. My role head of evangelism is relatively nebulous as a job title goes And as you you illustrated into the role is wide wide reaching. So you know where i would start is yes I manage a group of influencers inclusive of agency owners you folks at some tool providers but also folks from the media say search engine land search engine journal posts etc and meet with these individuals monthly. And it's it's a two way street here you know. I'm coming to the table with product updates and insights from data. That we're we're looking at our teams are looking at and giving these folks kind of a look down the path. But then they're also providing valuable feedback to me. Yes but also to directly to folks from engineering or other other parts of marketing. So it's a wonderful wonderful group actually was a part of it worked for advertising but you know that's that's one piece but yeah i mean evangelism in the tech world is me being out there right now. That's virtual the insect much like this participating in interviews panels. You speaking at conferences. Sms rate search marketing expo hero comp which may be knock on wood. We'll be back in person austin after the term year But then it's also writing in so that's how i made a name for myself in the industry was through through writing initially and then public speaking and that's carried through now for fifteen years of being a blogger talking about yes search advertising but i- blog about seo. I blog about the native display a lot about social not so much west. Five years but If you can the spend money on advertising something. I'm likely paying attention to just maintaining that kind of context big picture view so then i can say okay. How does the Advertising value proposition fit into that overall view. So the second part of your question was a little bit more about microsoft advertising so for those that may not be aware are. Our primary product is search advertising. So we are the the number two competitor to google ads when it comes to search and so that is bang. Yes but it's also it's yahoo. It's a host of syndicated partners including the likes of duct. Go in many others and so yes..

Of Operationalizing Agency business is there is a a really slick sort of premium version of the the sheet that I'm going to build live. Now I've been are that is included. In the toss it's it's. I.

Nick is offering for free, and then obviously there's the premium version on agency builder check out the links in the show notes. Nick I so appreciate your time as we get to the end of the podcast.

'cause what is your cause that you want amplify our audience whether it's a charity something you're behind something that you can do in your community what do you would you like to promote? So I'm trying to put as much energy as I can right now supporting a local organization called hope. Works? Camden. What they do is they provide paid. Mental Training. For underprivileged youth youth at that does not have access to the same resources and opportunities that that a lot of other kids do So they'll do is they'll actually pay a pay their young people to come in learn html, CSS Java script GPS, coordination stuff that's in high demand for well paying jobs in the immediate area, and then they'll actually help vote you know those students to once they graduate and their programs, eight of the students and these these young folks get pain to learn these skills and then they get to work within this environment flex those skills build up their resumes and then get placed in companies. Most time in the local environment local area. But most of these these kids are people of color and I think now more than ever like this is the time to be supporting. The overall beal movement just just hands down. This is like the more we can empower the sort of the use of America that is in these underprivileged areas with education especially with professional trades like like all the things we think about you don't need a four year for your degree to go get, you can go to iron act for four to six months and you can step into a seventy eight hundred thousand dollar dollar job as a reactive Elo for web developer. Jonathan. Bell. Are the modern trades, it's not just you know the trades that our parents remember it's not just being electricity or alignment or A. Plumber. It's all just it's changed and there's these a camden. Candice is making a really big impact and. The executive director behind the Dan Rotan is. The Dude Dude. He walks the walk as best so. Strongly supporting them in any way I can I love that because to your point it's the aspect of pain them because it's like when when you don't have those opportunities like you can't afford to not to learn and not get paid the same time. So I can imagine that that's huge in terms of development, and then it's so important to have diversified voices just in our industry in. A technical environments because when you add these different perspectives invoices, that's when innovation happens. Right? So I just think there's so much opportunities. Kids deserve a chance in the end. It sounds like a really great program plus I'm from Jersey. So I appreciate you know anything supporting that area nick this has been awesome.
