Growing BOLD EP19 – Office Construction
Are we really documenting our journey and are we really growing? Yes. This episode covers about three weeks in February as we travel from NYC to LA to MN and back again. We are moving mountains, doing whatever it takes and balancing the workload of an agency 10X our size. THIS is what happens when you put in the work – we're building a new HQ for BOLD Worldwide.
Growing BOLD EP18 – Patrick Bet-David
What's awesome about growing my business and documenting the process is that I get to talk to other super successful entrepreneurs and pick their brains. Spending a day with Patrick Bet-David taught me a lot about mindset, perspective and what I need to do next to keep growing BOLD.
“There are no limitations...The only limitations are if you make the enemy bigger than it really is.” - Patrick Bet-David

Quick business trip to Vegas where I spent some time with The Real Brad Lea – dropped some bombs on his podcast and talked a lot about the importance of "why".

Growing BOLD EP15 – Quality Problems
Growing a business isn't predictable. It's like traveling in 25 directions at once. Sometimes the trip is exciting, but often it's just executing the basics back at the office.
Regardless, if you want to grow, your goal is to create quality problems.
Growing BOLD EP14 – Startup Week Seattle
As an entrepreneur, you have to think on your feet – it's about problem solving and finding solutions. In this episode of Growing BOLD, I travel to Seattle to speak at Startup Week, take a few meetings and tell my story of overcoming challenges and taking action.
Taking action gets you everywhere.

In this episode of Growing BOLD we dig into Stephen Faught's backstory, speak at Southeastern Louisiana University, visit Abita Brewing Company and eat some beignets.

Growing BOLD EP09 – Press Record
When you tell your story to the world, an amazing thing happens – you connect with other people who align with your vision. Most people are afraid to do it, but as Hank Norman says, "just press record" and improve as you go. Big things are coming.
Growing BOLD EP08 – Damned if I Do/Don't
You have to make sacrifices while you grow a company. There is no such thing as work-life balance. I promised to let you in behind the scenes – this is about as personal as it gets.
Without my wife, Ali, none of this would be possible. She is a saint for putting up with me.

We've expanded to Miami. Networking and sacrifice are imperative to growing your company. The only thing glamorous about being an entrepreneur is saying you're an entrepreneur.
