Show notes

Tim and Jason talk about the ups and downs of running a business. And Tim makes extremely bold claims that if agencies bill by the hour there is no way they can scale that business and continue to attract and keep strong talent. Now is the time to transform your agency.

Tim challenges service-based companies to believe that agencies should sell solutions instead of hours, and that allows the agency to become much more valuable to the market place. And he talks about how agencies can reimagine their services as solutions (and get out of the treadmill of billing by the hour).

Listen in to hear the simple solution he offers for those ready to move into a place of value, instead of the tread mill of selling hours.
