Ep. 12: Stop Wearing So Many Hats; Optimize Your Agency Through Six Foundational Roles (with guest Karl Sakas)
Show Notes

My very special guest is the man, the myth, the legend...Karl Sakas. If you’re an agency owner, changes are you've been exposed to his genius through his writing or at conferences and webinars. He’s a one-man blogging machine; if there’s a topic related to running an agency, he’s probably written about it (or has it on his list for the future). Through his executive coaching firm, Sakas and Company, Karl has helped agency owners all over the globe. He is a wealth of knowledge and is able to back up his commentary with supporting links faster than you could ever Google it. Yes, I am a fan; I was thrilled Karl agreed to be on my show! In this episode we talk about six key roles within a creative agency, blogging ideas, and the importance of supporting your clients as the hero in their story.
