TMBA620: The Upside of Running an Agency

Thu, 21 Oct 2021
Today's podcast is all about a business model that sometimes gets a bad rap on this show: "the agency".
We recently bumped into our friend Johnathan Solorzano at MicroConf in Austin, and he had quite a bit to say about the subject.
Johnathan is the founder of Solo Media Group, a remote agency of web developers that focuses primarily on Shopify and WooCommerce projects.
We've invited Johnathan onto the show this week to share his thoughts about the upside of running an agency, specifically how it can provide you with unique insights into your market, improve your professional network, and help you start earning revenue fast.

TMBA619: Does Your Business Need an "Operating System"?

Thu, 14 Oct 2021
In last week's podcast, Carrie McKeegan shared how she has been using author Gino Wickman's EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System) to help her grow and manage her team.
This week, we're diving deeper into the topic by speaking with an entrepreneur who has developed their own customized version of the very same system with impressive results.
Neel Parekh is the founder of MaidThis, a business that offers cleaning services for residential homes and AirBNB rentals.
Neel joins us today to discuss why he chose to use the EOS system in MaidThis, the steps he has taken to implement it, and how smaller businesses can utilize a "Lite" version of EOS to help manage their teams.

TMBA618: Exploring Alternative Education Options for Nomadic Families

Thu, 07 Oct 2021
We've spoken at great length on this podcast about how the Covid pandemic has forced us to make changes in the way that we run our businesses.
This week, we're going to speak to an entrepreneur who used the landscape of Covid as an opportunity to provide an entirely different educational experience for her children.
Carrie McKeegan is the CEO and co-founder of Greenback Expat Tax Services, which helps Americans abroad prepare and file their taxes.
She and her husband Dave have been living outside of the United States for many years, raising their children as "Third Culture Kids", a subject that has become increasingly popular in our online community.
Carrie joins us this week to talk about what it's like educating children abroad, why she decided it was time to "reinvent education" for her kids, and how the book "Traction" by Gino Wickman has shaped the way that she manages her team.

TMBA617: Once Upon a Time in Mexico

Thu, 30 Sep 2021
It has been nearly two years since we've hosted an event for the members of our private membership forum The Dynamite Circle.
DCMEX, our first official event since 2019, is just a few short weeks away, and we couldn't be more excited to see so many listeners of this podcast in Mexico City this October.
In-person events are so important to those of us in the entrepreneurial community.
From the relationships that we develop to the things that we learn together, there are so many reasons why entrepreneurs can benefit from being together in the same place.
We've invited our longtime friend Jeff Pecaro back onto the show this week, to reflect on what the past few years have been like without DC events, how things have changed since the last time we've all been together, and why we've chosen Mexico City for our newest event.

TMBA616: The True Cost of Burnout, Anxiety, and Entrepreneurial Depression

Thu, 23 Sep 2021
Today's episode is all about mental health, depression, anxiety, and the effect that these things can have on the way that we run our businesses.
Benny Lewis is the founder of Fluent in 3 months, and he recently opened up about his own struggles at our unofficial DCx event in London a few weeks ago.
While his business was "successful" by many traditional metrics, his personal life was far from it.
He soon found himself under a mountain of credit card debt, with his marriage to his partner of five years ending in divorce.
Benny joins us on this week's podcast to share the details of his personal journey.
You'll hear about his battle with clinical depression, the steps he took to get back on his feet, and how his business was able to survive through such a tumultuous period in his life.
