He had 32 points on 19 shots in just 27 minutes, looking like the best player in the NBA once again. Zeke Nnaji also had a career high of 21 points as his three-point shooting continues to impress. Meanwhile, newcomer Davon Reed scored nine points and did bit of everything in his Nuggets debut. Ryan discusses it all, especially Reed, in the latest episode.

About Uber Freight Uber Freight is a logistics platform built on the power of Uber with the goal to reshape global logistics and deliver reliability, flexibility and transparency for shippers and carriers. Since launching in 2017, Uber Freight has built one of the world's largest digitally-enabled carrier networks and transformed entrenched practices around pricing and booking freight to reduce inefficiencies and increase opportunities for business growth and industry collaboration. Today, the business counts over 100,000 carriers in its network and thousands of shippers as customers, from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, including AB Inbev, Nestle, LG, Land O'Lakes and many more. Key Takeaways: Understanding Uber Freight Raj Subbiah is Head of Product for Uber Freight, Uber's logistics business that seamlessly connects shippers and carriers across the US, Canada, and Europe. In the podcast interview, Raj Subbiah helps the audience gain a better understanding of Uber Freight. Problems in the transportation and logistics business: Logistics has traditionally been underserved by technology perhaps because of the decentralized nature of the industry – lots of different shippers, carriers, brokers, etc. Too many manual functions where decisions lead to “local optimum.” Local optimum is the best solution to a problem within a small neighborhood of possible solutions. This concept is in contrast to the global optimum, which is the optimal solution when every possible solution is considered. Lots of tribal knowledge, which by it's nature is not distributed throughout the organization. Ideally, tribal knowledge is captured, verified, and codified so it can be used by the whole organization. Shipper expectations are rising. Shippers informed by consumer technology expect a superior customer experience enabled by intuitive technology. Shippers are also increasingly interested in sustainability. Supply chains are responsible for 80% of greenhouse gas emissions – consumers and regulators want the freight industry to literally clean up their act. Freight's fundamental matching problem: Only 79% of miles are loaded. Empty miles are about 1.5% of US greenhouse gas emissions. Supply chains have been volatile since the beginning of the pandemic, with elevated rates and fragile capacity highlighting the need for innovative procurement solutions. Raj and the Uber Freight team believe they can address and solve many of the problems listed above.

Are you looking for the right formula for quick agency growth? When Ellen Jantsch was working as a head of growth in a small tech startup, she felt there was space for an agency focused on testing and executing strategies into long-term sustainable growth. She held on to that idea while she worked as a freelancer and when she started Tuff, a remote growth team for hire. They work with teams in nearly every industry to deliver actionable strategies to attract and keep more engaged customers. Today she joins the podcast to talk about how she found the right formula for quick growth for her agency, her strategic move to grow the agency's most valuable asset, and the moment she started thinking of a more repeatable formula to generate new business. 3 Golden Nuggets Test to find the right formula. When discussing how to find the right formula to grow your business, Ellen recalls that, more than anything, what helped her find the right fit for her agency was finding what didn't work for them. “Testing and experimentation was a much quicker route to finding what was going to work,” she assures. The agency relied a lot on word of mouth at one point and at one point they started to try different approaches, from outbound sales to putting on workshops and events. Finally, they focused on an SEO strategy that now brings 75 leads per month to their door. The foundation to grow your most valuable asset. In an unusual move, for her second hire, Ellen searched for an HR person. “If you're serious about building a remote team and a small team,” she assures, “you have to put a lot of foundation in place.” So, she worked with this person to set a career framework and think about the hiring processes. They decided on details like how to set up benefits and compensation and how to create an inclusive hiring process. It took a lot of time, but your agency team is your most valuable asset, after all. By the time she figured out what direction she wanted for the agency and the type of roles she needed to hire, there was already a solid hiring process in place. A predictable pipeline is everything. One of the things that became very clear for Ellen when she thought about what she could do to continue to grow her agency was that she would need to figure out how to create a more repeatable formula for generating new business. A more predictable look at revenue and growth would allow making strategic hiring decisions early, versus hiring someone when the pressure is up due to so much work. The only way to get ahead of that is to predict what the next six months are going to look like. Sponsors and Resources Wix: Today's episode is sponsored by the Wix Partner Program.

Jason Swenk here. And on today's episode, we have an amazing guest, uh, fellow Coloradan, if that's a word, I don't know. I just moved here so I don't know. But we're going to talk about how she's grown her agency so quickly. And, uh, go over some of the strategies that have worked for her and some of the things that might not have worked, so it helps you avoid them. So let's go ahead and get into the episode. Hey, Ellen. Welcome to the show. Ellen: [00:00:33] Glad to be here. Thanks for having me. Jason: [00:00:36] Yeah. Excited to have you on. So tell us who you are and what do you do? Ellen: [00:00:39] I run a business called Tuff. We're a small, fully remote growth marketing agency partnering primarily with startups, scale-ups, helping them get traffic and grow their revenue. We focus on tactics like Google ads, technical SEO, content, creative, Facebook ad, CRO, and email. Really trying to figure out how to test quickly and then operationalize small wins into long-term sustainable growth. Jason: [00:01:04] Awesome. And so how did you get started creating your agency? Ellen: [00:01:09] Primarily through freelancing. I think that's probably a common story, but I had done in my career prior to freelancing corporate marketing worked at an ad tech startup worked at like a really small startup as a head of growth. And I knew… Felt like there was an opportunity to, to start an agency like Tuff. But wanted to hone in on my own kind of experiences, primarily from an executional standpoint. So I freelanced for about a year and a half. Some consulting to strategy work, but a lot of executional work running Google ads, running Facebook ads, writing email copy. Trying to just kind of hone in on the services that Tuff was going to provide initially. And then got to a crossroads where it felt like I had enough money in the bank. I knew I didn't want to ever take capital as I started Tuff. And so I, I pretty much planned to have enough, enough money to pay myself a salary as well as two other people for six months, even if we didn't sign a single client. And at that point about three years ago, decided to start Tuff and put the freelancing work to the side. Jason: [00:02:11] Awesome, and so what were the roles of the two people that you hired first and why? Ellen: [00:02:16] Yeah, two people. Um, the first one was a PPC strategist, somebody to take over a lot of the day-to-day executional work I was doing for clients, Google ads, Bing ads, YouTube ads, that type of work. It allowed me to take off one hat and pass it to somebody else. The second hire was crazy to think about now, a non-revenue generating employee. Somebody to help us with people ops. I do think that if you're serious about building a remote team and a small team, you have to put a lot of foundation in place. We worked on a career framework. We thought about hiring processes. How do you set up benefits? How do you think about compensation? What's equitable? How do you create an inclusive hiring process? Just spend a lot of time getting that in place before we started actually thinking about building a team. Jason: [00:03:00] That's great. No, that's really great. That's first time I've heard someone bring on like an HR-type person as their second role. I thought you would say like project manager. And everyone always thinks they're not billable. Like, they're billable. I don't know why no one thinks that, but I usually tell people around the 10 person mark to get the HR and people usually are shocked. They're like, I thought you had to do that much later on. But I think a lot of people think they're just doing paperwork. And they're not doing all the other things to make sure you get the right people. Because the people in agency are the most valuable asset. Ellen: [00:03:36] Especially in a service-based agency, you know, I think it's people work with Tuff because they like the experience of the team members here. And if you don't get that right, then you have a lot of employee turnover. The cost of hiring the wrong employees is astronomical, if you ask me. And so I'd rather get it right the first time around. Jason: [00:03:54] Yeah. Well, do you guys feel that you've got it right on the first couple of hires? I know. Man, I hired so many of the wrong people. I got rid of a lot of the right people too. Many, many years. Cause I didn't have that person. Ellen: [00:04:06] Yeah, we really struggled in the beginning, mostly because we had a strong process for hiring, I feel, but didn't really know what we wanted. And I think that goes back to as well as being the kind of first-time founder never working on an agency before. We hadn't really established our playing field. So we were kind of like saying yes to every opportunity. We were doing any type of service that we could offer. We were just trying to generate revenue. And I didn't have a clear enough picture around what we actually need out of team members and what kind of like the long-term vision and who the right client is for Tuff. And we've kind of paralleled those. And as it became more clear around where we get the right results and the types of clients we want to work with, it becomes a lot easier to hire because you know exactly what you're looking for. But in the beginning it was a cluster. I was just shocked anybody wanted to work with us, to be honest. Jason: [00:04:50] Yeah, I think everyone has to go through the cluster. It's like that Vegas buffet, you're trying out everything. What was the pivotal moment where you got that clarity? Ellen: [00:05:00] Yeah, I think it probably happened about 18 months ago. And two things became really clear if I was going to continue to have any chance of growing Tuff, we had to figure out how to hire talent that's adaptable, autonomous more senior in position. So not people that we'd have to train extensively in the beginning who had experience working on small teams. So really honing in on characteristics versus job responsibilities, and that's been really helpful. Um, the second thing would be how do you create a more repeatable formula for generating new business? I think when you have a more predictable look at revenue and growth, it becomes a lot easier to then make strategic hiring decisions early. Versus waiting to kind of like feel the pinch in the stress of like, oh gosh, we've got a lot of work. We've got to hire somebody else. Or this whole thing is going to collapse. You can get to a point where you slowly get out of that and get ahead of it with hiring and you can't do that unless you can predict what the next six months is going to look like. Jason: [00:06:03] When you're an agency partner with Wix, you unlock an entire digital ecosystem for creating, managing, and growing your agency. Get the full coding and design freedom to create anything your clients need, along with the tools to manage and collaborate with your team seamlessly from anywhere. And when it comes to growing your agency, you can get matched with new leads every day and earn revenue share for every website you guys create. They're backed by the Wix industry leading security and cyber performance. You'll also have a dedicated account manager on standby 24/7 so you can reach your goals and start setting new ones. See for yourself, head over to wix.com/partners and re-imagine what your agency can accomplish. Yeah. Building a predictable pipeline is everything, right? Like if your business is built on word of mouth, which I always joke around saying that's just not scalable. And you're relying on other people, then you're going to take on work that you probably shouldn't be. Because there's no such thing as a bad agency client and only a bad prospect or a bad process. And, and so when you can build that predictable pipeline, it makes things a lot easier where you're picking and choosing. So let's transition to that. What's worked for you for building a more full pipeline? Ellen: [00:07:25] I think more than anything, what hasn't worked. I have found at least with Tuff, testing and experimentation was a much quicker route to finding, finding what was going to work. And I think in the early days we relied a lot on word of mouth. Um, larger agencies. We tried to kind of like create partnerships for any clients they didn't want. Jason: [00:07:43] That doesn't work. Ellen: [00:07:45] No. Let's see, I put on workshops, I went to events. I would like get in touch with people that had been connected with LinkedIn. We tried outbound sales, um, saw some success there, but definitely not like a natural skillset for me. So a bit of a stretch. So we tried a whole bunch of different things for about a year. Um, got exhausted. And finally realized how do we generate more inbound leads then have, have healthier conversations and get people knocking on our door and getting curious about working with top and wanting to work with us. And so we started getting really specific with an SEO strategy. So that took, you know, that's a slow burn. It's not a, it's not like paid acquisition. It's not like referrals. It takes a long time to build it was a schlep. But now when you go into Google and type growth marketing agency, you're going to see Tuff in the number one spot. If you type content, strategy, agency, technical SEO agency, YouTube ads agency, we're going to be in the top three. And now we're lucky and humbled enough to have 75 leads knock on our door a month. And we maybe take on one or two. And I couldn't have predicted that level of scale ever, but the organic acquisition has really been important for us. Jason: [00:08:52] Very cool. Yeah. You know, I always tell everybody, it's kind of like, as you're building and growing the business, you got to experiment with what's not working. And then kind of go back to kind of the basics and really build on that foundation. And what we found too cause a lot of times. In the very beginning, when we were growing our agency, we grew it from being in the search engines and people coming to us. Then when we started getting, wanting to get to the next level, we started realizing, man, we need this outbound channel. Man, we need this strategic partnership channel. You know, Google changes one thing, we're toast. And then we're laying off a lot of people. So it's always… always a work in progress. Ellen: [00:09:37] Yeah. I couldn't agree enough. And I think we kind of, you know, like we partner with clients every day to think about growing revenue and acquiring new customers or users for them. And we try to apply the same process for Tuff. So we do quarterly growth marketing strategies. We stay pretty committed to it, but I would say we're like in that moment right now, Jason, where 75% of our leads come from organic traffic. And when you think about having all of your eggs in one basket, it's terrifying. And so we're starting to get to this point where we're capturing a lot of existing demand, how do we start to create a little bit more demand? And how does that look like for us long-term? Jason: [00:10:12] Yeah. I almost even look at it too of like, when I hear 75 leads a month, I'm like, okay, good. How can I make them even better? Or how could I even convert them more? Like I was talking to Darby or skill specialist. I'm like, well, out of the conversations that you set up, how could we have the ones we want… How do we increase that conversion rate? Just a little bit. That's always those little fine tweaks that work. I'm going to ask you something I've never really asked anybody that I'm gonna start doing the show. What's the thing that you've regretted that you haven't done in the agency yet? Ellen: [00:10:47] For the agency. Hmm. That's such a great question. I think, um, this is very tactical, but I apologize. It's top of mind. We didn't add on our creative team until recently. And in the growth game, we're really metrics driven data driven, thinking about tactics and the strategies behind those. But if you don't have really good creative, you're not going to get very far. And for so long we outsourced that. Not really trusting in our processes, not really understanding what that would look like in house. And we didn't bring it in house until about three months ago. And now I'm like, oh shit, we need to triple that team tomorrow. And so I think I would've just looked a little bit more holistically at our services and figure out… Again, it just goes back to how do you exchange the most value? And where can you team be the strongest? And I was slow to, I was slow to pick up on that. Jason: [00:11:34] Awesome. Well, Ellen, this has all been amazing. Is there anything I didn't ask you that you think would benefit the audience? Ellen: [00:11:40] No, I think you've covered it. Jason: [00:11:42] All right. Perfect. Uh, what's the website people go and check out the agency? Ellen: [00:11:46] tuffgrowth.com. Jason: [00:11:48] Awesome. Very easy. Everyone go check it out.

Today we'll start diving into our history. As an actor, part of the work of creating a role is to understand the history of the character (their backstory) and how it impacts the life they're living and the moments they're experiencing in the story being told. Their history dictates how they show up in the world of the play. Our history dictates how we show up in our world, in the role of parent. We'll explore why understanding our history – the history of how we were raised and its impact on how we parent our children, is so important. We'll kick off our show with The Raise a Glass Series, get on to our questions to explore, and end with A Short Story Before We Go. MFA is the sometimes-musical, dramedy, in 3 acts, 1 intermission, the length of a sitcom designed to give mama's (and any caregiver) a break in the day to breathe and reset along with a much needed audio hug.

The internet is crowded and it can be hard for a new blogger to get noticed online. And if you're just starting out it seems like there's so much to… how do you know where to put your time and energy so that your posts get found, read, shared, and engaged with? While it's not enough to just write great posts, you also don't have to do all the things to stand out. It's all about using your time and energy on the right tasks - ones that will give you the best returns - and not overwhelming yourself with trying to do everything. Here are 5 things you need to do for each blog post that will help people find you and grow your business. 1. Graphics Social media where the majority of people get their information these days, which means our feeds are full. In order to stop people from scrolling, you need graphics that get their attention. The other benefit of graphics is that they take up more space in people's feeds, so they have more time to see your post and stop scrolling. For each post I recommend you create 3 graphics: 1280 x 720 px for Facebook and/ or Twitter 1080 x 1080 px for Instagram and/or Facebook 1000 x 1500 px for Pinterest If you use a program like PicMinkey or Canva Pro, you can create templates for yourself, so each week you can simply enter your current post info and save yourself time. Using a template also helps you have a consistent look for your blog posts - people will start to recognize your work! 2. SEO Search engine optimization, commonly known as SEO, is what allows search engines like Google and Bing, and Yahoo! To understand what your blog post is about and recommend it to people when they enter search criteria. Yes, search engines do crawl your content to “read” it, but to help them get a better idea of the focus of your post you need to set an SEO keyword, meta description, and URL slug. I recommend using the free plugin Yoast to make managing all of this as easy as possible. Yoast will scan your post and give you an SEO rating, as well as recommendations as to how to improve your SEO. Once you review and follow Yoasts recommendations a few times, you'll start to build the techniques into your posts automatically. 3. A Great Title For your blog posts you want to craft a title that is both catchy and clear. A potential reader should know what they're going to get when they click on your post. When bloggers try to get cute with post titles, it leaves readers confused as to what the post is about. Since we all have an extremely limited amount of time, people are far less likely to click on an unclear post title. As Donald Miller of Business Made Simple says, “When you confuse, you lose.” Instead of clever, aim for clear. The free Headline Analyzer tool will read your post title and give you a score based on a set of criteria. You can pay for deeper analysis, but I've always found the free version to work just fine. As an added bonus, a great title can also boost your SEO by making your posts primary idea even more clear! 4. A Concise Description When your post comes up on Google or social media, an easy to understand description will give viewers a clear idea of what your post will contain. This further helps them decide to click on your link or not. In this case, brevity is your friend because Google will clip your description at 155-160 characters, so it's important to have a succinct 1-2 sentence summary of your post. To save time, you can use the same description for Twitter. Once you add a link to the post, you'll be close to the 280 character count. When it comes to other social media, you typically have more space to use for your post description, so play around with various lengths to see what works best for you. Pinterest limits you to 500 characters, Instagram to 2,200, and Facebook to just over 63k. Another bonus, a clear description can boost your post's SEO even more! 5. Distribution Strategy Last, but certainly not least, you need to have a plan to distribute your blog post so even more people can find it. Before I even get to strategy, let me state that there is no need to create a complicated distribution schedule. In fact, as you get started, I suggest that you choose a single platform on which to share your content, then expand slowly once you get your system down. Email. Every time you publish a new post you should email your list. These are the people who value what you have to say so much that they gave you their email address! They want to know when you're sharing more good stuff, so let them know! Social Media. Pick a social media platform to start with and decide when you're going to share your new content. It might feel excessive at first, but share your post more than once. People are busy and social media feeds move fast, so you can't assume that people will see your initial share. In fact, only about 3-5% of your social followers will see your post at all thanks to the algorithms that control the feed. Pinterest. Not a social media platform, Pinterest is a visual search engine and another place for you to share your content. Like social media, you're going to want to share on Pinterest more than once because the website has stated that they want “fresh pins,” meaning unique descriptions and images each time you share. Interestingly, getting your post into more hands via social media and your email list can boost your SEO reach even further! More visits to your site, especially if they stay there for a while and read multiple posts, tells Google that you're an authority and people find your site valuable… making them more likely to recommend you! Remember that you don't have to focus on all of these tasks at once. Just do one thing at a time, give yourself time to master it, then add in the next task. With time and continuous effort, these small changes will add up and your blog will grow. Ready for the next step?

In 1946 Bing Crosby was the king of media. He was the movie star, the pop star and his radio show was reaching a third of american living rooms each week. But then, it all started to fall apart. His ratings were plummeting and his fans were fleeing. Bing however, was not going down without a fight. Today, the story of how Bing Crosby and some stolen Nazi technology won his audience back, changed media forever and accidentally broke reality along the way. Mixtape is reported, produced, scored and sound designed by, me, Simon Adler with original music throughout by me. Invaluable reporting and production assistance was provided by Eli Cohen. Special thanks to: Michele Hilmes, Pete Hammer, Rich Flores, Mara Mills, Jonathan Sterne, Claudia Mewes. Though their voices weren't in the piece, input certainly was. And to Mary Crosby and Robert Bader, for opening up Bing's archive for us and enabling us to fill this episode with so much of Bing's music.

Google My Business may not be the sexy popular platform we think of - mainly because you have to fit your business into their parameters, but it is essential. And FREE! Many businesses stop at just having a Google My Business profile, but are not taking the time to optimize it. 25 years ago, Chris Hickle's wife was teaching piano lessons to help pay for college.

Chris found a hole in the market with music stores. He is not a musician himself, so expanding and offering his online marketing and technology skills to other musicians and business owners was the natural next step for him and his wife, Jen, in 2013. That's when they started Never Alone Business Services and help brick and mortar businesses market their business. Did you know?

Off the success of the Sam Raimi & Tobey Maguire Spider-Man Trilogy it was time for a fresh new idea. So Sony decided to make the same Spider-Man movie again with The Amazing Spider-Man 2012. Well it's a little bit different. With Andrew Garfield in the lead role and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey this time we see Marvel's biggest character go up against The Lizard with only the Bing search engine, a Sony Vaio and a camera with his name printed on it.

This is a snippet from Breaking Walls Episode 96: Halloween On The Air (1943 - 1953) ___________ In 1945 Bing Crosby decided that he wanted to pre-record his NBC Kraft Music Hall program. Although transcription had existed since the late 1920s, NBC and CBS forbade their use for prime-time network shows. NBC and Kraft refused to budge. Crosby walked out. In the fall of 1945 The Kraft Music Hall went back on with comic Frank Morgan, pianist Eddy Duchin, and the Charioteers. Crosby declared his contract null and void. Kraft insisted they had options which ran until 1950. The sponsor took Bing and agency J. Walter Thompson to court. The walkout would last seven months. A settlement brought Crosby back for the final thirteen weeks of the season. In the midst of this Walgreen Drugs Stores sponsored a transcribed 45th Anniversary special on CBS at 10pm on June 18th, 1946. The program was one of the network's first transcribed shows to be heard from coast to coast. It starred Bob Hope with talents including The Andrews Sisters, Frank Morgan, Harry Von Zell, Rochester, and Ginny Simms. The program cost $62,000 to produce. The Walgreen's special was proof that transcription could be viable if the networks would allow it. With Bing finishing his Kraft obligation he was now a free agent. The American Broadcasting Company quickly signed the star, announcing that they had no qualms with pre-recorded shows. They announced a to-be-titled musical program with a weekly budget of $35,000. Now they just had to find a sponsor.

In this podcast, Celia Bradford talks to Bing Brotohusodo about a challenging time in his life. Early in 2020, Bing contracted COVID-19. This resulted in a two-month hospital stay and admission to the ICU. Celia was one of Bing's physicians and together, they reflect on Bing's time in hospital and his recovery. Bing was as a helpful patient. So much so, that he was able to prone himself! However, Celia recalls how challenging it was treating Covid in those early days. Staff were desperately trying to work out what Covid was and how best to treat it. The question of "are we doing the right thing?" was always in the back of people's minds. Furthermore, this was exacerbated by the confusion of multiple treatments being promoted in the media. There were countless opinions about how Covid should be treated. Information was flowing fast, making it challenging to discern what the best way forward was. Celia and Bing reflect on Bing's time in ICU and his post-COVID recovery. Tune in to a podcast from #CodaZero Live on a patient's perspective of COVID-19. For more head to https://codachange.org/podcasts/
