On today’s episode we chat with Brady, who is building a web design business from his home in northern Idaho, USA. Brady has already built up a small team of contractors and aims to get the business running almost on autopilot in the next 6-12 months. To do that, he’s got to first perfect his sales process and then train someone else to do it. But he’s got a bit of a sales problem. After drafting a proposal and getting on a call with a client, too many people are just saying “no”—making it hard to get new web design clients on a regular basis. So today’s episode becomes a masterclass on selling your services without ever drafting up a proposal—which Clay and I believe are a massive waste of time and effort. This episode reveals what we recommend you do instead—the method that gets us a 90% close rate with new clients.

On today’s episode, we chat with Brendan—a sales consultant who wants to scale his business to something bigger. And while he finally started hiring people to help him scale, he’s still a bit unsure about a path forward. He’s working on a course for more passive income and he’s trying to transition away from one-on-one consulting gigs to more of a sales coach role. Since Clay and I are fresh off our recent 5-day recurring revenue challenge, we have some good advice for his course’s future and since Clay is building a very similar business to Brendan’s we wrap up the episode with some killer advice on scaling a coaching business.

On today’s show, we chat with Jon who’s a physical product designer and prototyper.  Jon’s got a highly technical business—which you’ll see as we chat with him on the episode today. That means that Jon is very smart when it comes to product design and 3D printing, but has a hard time translating that expertise into language that appeals to clients. So in today’s episode, where I'm also joined by my friend and guest coach Matt Olpinski, we walk Jon through some important ways to think about messaging and marketing. Because, as a freelancer, you can offer the absolute best service on the market, but if you don’t know how to tell people about it, you’re in trouble.

On today’s show, we chat with Christine, the founder of Bryant Creative Company. Christine has a nice freelance business where she works on graphic design and branding for her clients.  But over time, Christine has also begun to offer additional services such as web design—which, frankly, she doesn’t enjoy as much and she’s not as good at. That brings up a whole lot of questions on our call such as: should I outsource jobs that aren’t a fit? Or should I decline them altogether? If you’re not sure whether to expand your service offering or double down on what you do best then this episode, where we're joined by special guest coach Matt Olpinski, is for you.
