Have you nailed down your agency's ideal niche? Are you attracting clients that ignite your agency's growth? Could you be standing in the way of your ability to raise agency prices? After years as a generalist agency, today's guest decided to turn his business into a dual agency launching a niche firm alongside his broad shop. This calculated risk revealed his true north while preserving the existing revenue streams. Now their work inside the niche outpaces the generalist division of the agency. He talks about the decision to create two agencies and his revelation to let go of limiting thinking in order to raise prices. Matt Banker is the owner of Banker Creative, a business he calls a dual agency since it has two different brands under one agency. Matt shares his experience running two brands, Banker Creative and Benchmark Growth, which specialize in web design and marketing for accounting firms, respectively. He discusses the benefits of having a niche focus and the importance of building processes to delegate tasks to his team. Tune in to learn from his insights and strategies for growing and scaling an agency. In this episode, we'll discuss: Shedding your limiting mindset in order to raise agency prices.

Matt's career began in consulting, but he craved solving business challenges hands-on. He moved to an agency, seeking a consultative versus task-driven role. However, it wasn't the greatest experience. Ready to merge his design and storytelling skills on his terms, Matt built a web design shop. In the early days, Matt advertised his services on Craigslist and charged around $1,500 for his first websites. He quickly realized the need to hire additional help to handle the growing workload and started with a part-time designer. It was an area he knew well enough that he could hand it off to someone else and still manage that process. If he could do it over again, Matt would hire an operations manager sooner. However, he fell into the trap of hiring help to support him in whatever projects he was taking on. As the agency continued to grow, he made a crucial shift in his mindset and focused on building out processes and handing off tasks to his team. Once he stepped back and trusted his team, he started to have the freedom to focus on sales and business development. Initially, delegating proved difficult. Matt's hands-on interest complicated empowering his team. But as momentum grew, he realized it was time to “become more boring as a company” and create efficient systems and workflows. Structure and trust paved the path to scale. How to Stop a Limiting Mindset and Raise Agency Prices Looking back on that initial $1,500 fee, Matt sees what held him back from raising prices sooner was just his own mindset. To him, running an agency is 30% being good at the thing you're selling. The other 70% is learning things you didn't think you needed to know and dealing with self-worth issues. You start to doubt yourself when asking: How much do I deserve to make for this project? Those are limiting factors. Your agency will only grow to the level that you as the owner, are at, so you need to always find ways to keep leveling up. With time, Matt realized he and his team were gaining more knowledge and providing amazing value to their clients. If they were to charge based on performance, they could definitely get paid more. He raised his prices and soon realized in most cases he was more price-sensitive than his clients. They had no trouble paying what his agency was worth and he was the one standing in his own way. Currently, he puts his pricing on his website as a form of self-accountability. To him, having the price out there means making one decision in advance instead of making it on every single call. This, however, could deter bigger clients from working with him, as they could be expecting to pay much more than is announced on his website and assume his agency lacks the experience they want. Building a Dual Agency to Explore Their Ideal Niche Matt's agency has since expanded to include two brands. Banker Creative, specializes in web design using the StoryBrand framework, and Benchmark Growth focuses on marketing for accounting firms. The decision to niche down and target accounting firms was a strategic one, influenced in part by the agency's name, "Banker Creative." While they have worked with banks and other financial professionals, they found that accountants are the ideal niche for their services. The first five years after creating the agency Matt had no clear idea of exactly what they did. That was a big part of why they ended up splitting into two different brands. They wanted to niche down and offer more marketing services but realized they couldn't build a repeatable system for an unlimited number of businesses. On the other hand, they knew they could run website projects for any type of business. As a result, they decided to build a system for one type of business, accounting firms. Then they split the company to focus on one client type while still not turning off the faucet on the website work. At the time, this is what was paying the bills. In just two years, it was the other way around. Now most of their business is coming through the accounting firm niche. With a defined niche, Matt can now refer clients who aren't a good fit to other people. He has found that the willingness and the ability to refer work away is freeing because it allows him to be picky with clients. Furthermore, it builds a good referral network for his agency. The Who Framework to Find Your Audience and Build Scalability Building systems for scalability is a crucial aspect of growing a business. As the owner, Matt initially found himself involved in every aspect of the business. However, he recognized that in order to grow and scale, he needed to let go and trust his team to handle these responsibilities. By doing so, he was able to focus on the parts of the business that he truly enjoyed and that gave him energy. There are certain aspects of the business that agency owners won't necessarily want to delegate and that's okay. The end goal is to be able to pick and choose the things that you want to do. However, you have to build a business where you don't HAVE to do it, just choose to. In this sense, Jason recommends leveling up by answering 3 important questions of WHO: Who do you want to go after? Who do you need to hire? And, who do you need to become? Once you create a framework, you'll be able to identify your ideal team and clients much faster and create more freedom for yourself. The more you're able to build repeatable systems, the more willing you'll be to refer work and trust your team can handle it. Do You Want to Transform Your Agency from a Liability to an Asset?

On this episode of the Team Deakins Podcast, director and cinematographer Reed Morano (THE HANDMAID'S TALE, I THINK WE'RE ALONE NOW, MEADOWLAND) speaks with us in a career-spanning conversation. We learn how after being drafted into the position of family documentarian, Reed soon found herself drawn towards the world of filmmaking. Reed reflects on how she may or may not have gotten her first job as a cinematographer on Craigslist after film school and how shooting FROZEN RIVER changed her career. We discuss the types of projects Reed is approached for as a director and how the opportunity to tell a man's story from her perspective drew her to direct I THINK WE'RE ALONE NOW. Towards the end, we also discuss the noble folly of trying to save a script that just doesn't work. - This episode is sponsored by Fiilex Instagram: @fiilexled

David Falco is the founder and owner of the Inner Anthem Academy, who has always been an underdog, which caused him to be creative and resourceful in life as well as his business. He built a brick-and-mortar gym by using old equipment purchased from garage sales, thrift stores, and Craigslist. With over 16 years' experience in the fitness industry, he went from making $15/session to growing a multi-6-fgure income online program which encompasses the United States, Italy, and Korea. David's mission is to help people see their challenges as blessings rather than burdens, and to overcome self-sabotage with a focus on overcoming their personal demons. He shares his personal story about growing up without a strong father figure, running away from home at 17, and going out on his own at 18. As a result, he had to develop strong problem-solving skills as well as critical thinking skills. Those skills along with his resilience, determination, and tenacity of spirit helped him become successful in his professional and personal life. David also explains his unique approach to working with his students by addressing their belief system, self-image, and addressing what happens outside the gym as well as in it. Download this very positive, uplifting, and motivating episode to hear his story and discover how you can overcome obstacles and become unstoppable. https://www.facebook.com/InnerAnthemAcademy/ https://www.youtube.com/@inneranthemacademy/featured https://www.insta gram.com/david.f.falco/

Join us for an exceptional bonus episode of Not A Bomb Podcast! We are absolutely thrilled to welcome back the immensely talented writer, filmmaker, and professor Michele Meek to our show. Michele's vast expertise in the world of teen sex comedies elevates our podcast with a trove on insights making this episode truly extraordinary. This week, our focus is on a specific niche within romantic comedy: The Cougar Rom-com! We'll be exploring two films from vastly different decades that surprisingly share similar story elements.We kick things off with 1989's Loverboy. Directed by Joan Micklin Silver and starring 2023's Sexiest Man Alive, Patrick Dempsey, as a male escort trying to make money to pay for college. The film boasts a remarkable ensemble cast but also grapples with some troubling 80's comedy tropes that just haven't aged well.Hold on, there's an extra treat! We also dive into 2023's No Hard Feelings, a gender-swapped remake of Loverboy. In this rendition, Jennifer Lawrence faces imminent home loss and responds to a Craigslist ad aiming to assist helicopter parents in coaxing their introverted son out of his shell. While the film faced criticism for its age-gap relationship, we discuss if No Hard Feelings offer more depth beyond its wild premise.Please check out Michele Meek's website for all of her details and links to her work - About Michele Meek - Michele Meek, Ph.D. Also, pick up a copy of Michele Meek's newest book, “Consent Culture and Teen Films: Adolescent Sexuality in US Movies.” Michele Meek photos are provided courtesy of Stephanie Ewens Photography.If you want to leave feedback or suggest a movie bomb, please drop us a line at NotABombPod@gmail.com or Contact Us - here.

In April 2009, the city of Boston was on high alert--there was a madman on the loose. They called him the Craigslist killer since his MO was to meet young women on craigslist.com, meet them, and then rob them. And he would kill if they fought back. All police had to go on were grainy photos from hotel security cameras. But as the attacks continued, the search for the killer escalated and they knew it was just a matter of time before he struck again. LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?

What does it take to scale up a high-volume real estate wholesaling business? TJ Kosen shares his experience building a thriving real estate wholesaling company doing hundreds of deals per year. He provides insights into scaling up through hiring the right people, investing in marketing and leads, and developing processes to repeatedly close transactions. TJ has been in the market since 2006. He has owned and managed residential real estate from 1 to 112 units in addition to a residential Real Estate note portfolio and self-storage facilities. His Dallas-based investment company TNT Property Solutions moves a high volume of distressed and retail-grade residential properties in the Texas and Florida markets. TNT is a tight-knit DFW-based company that sources direct-to-seller distressed properties, recapitalizes them, and either holds them in their portfolio or positions them for resale on either the retail, wholesale, or seller finance markets. We don't believe in a “one-size-fits-all all” business model. We believe members and students should build the business they want - to suit their lifestyles and goals. To that end, we facilitate their success through a robust community whose guiding principle is “brutal honesty” when it comes to business development. [00:02:18 - 00:03:45] Opening Segment TJ bought his first 112 unit apartment complex off Craigslist in 2006, just before the 2008 housing crisis caused him to lose millions. He restarted with house flipping in San Diego before moving to Texas to scale up his volume. [00:03:45 - 00:05:35] Transitioning from a Dealer to Building a Business TJ disliked talking to sellers, so he started hiring people to do it instead. He realized he had to shift from a transactional dealer mindset to building out the business. This involved developing processes that could be repeated and finding employees passionate about acquisition. [00:05:35 - 00:08:21] Generating High-Quality Leads at Scale TJ uses PPC, direct mail, referrals, and targeted Facebook ads to drive leads. PPC provides high-intent inbound leads that convert quickly. It's expensive but optimized over 5+ years. He adds team members only after increasing leads to ensure their success. [00:08:21 - 00:10:18] Coaching Employees from Junior to Senior Roles New hires start assisting on calls before taking the lead to build confidence. Inbound leads require closing fast, so junior team members are coached to convert high-intent sellers. This training helps transition them into fully independent roles. [00:10:18 - 00:12:37] Transitioning from Deal Focus to Process Focus TJ doesn't worry about margins on lower-profit deals. He cares about repeating the process. This means focusing on marketing costs, conversion rates, and closing costs rather than profit per deal. Empowered employees can negotiate both low and high-profit deals effectively. Best deal: His primary residences with more than 1 Million in Equity Worst deal: Buying two apartment complexes right before the 2008 financial crisis Top lesson learned: Hitting a stress limit is a sign you need to hire and delegate tasks to others. Quotes: "I didn't like talking to sellers. Just, they bummed me out. I mean, you're motivated by two things, right? Pain or pleasure. And the pain of talking to sellers was worse than the pain of having to pay people to talk to sellers." - TJ Kosen "Invest in people because yeah, just invest in people. That's the only way to get out of doing all the stuff yourself. It's going to be a headache. It's going to be expensive. It's going to be stressful. But, once you hit a certain stress level, just doing more stuff, it doesn't actually provide more stress. It just means you prioritize what's actually important." - TJ Kosen Connect with TJ: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tjkosen/ Apply to Invest with Taylor at www.investwithtaylor.com Track your wealth for free with Personal Capital, go to www.escapingwallstreet.com Please leave a review and help others escape Wall Street and build wealth on Main Street!

In Part 3, we meet Vesuvio bartender Joanna Lioce. Originally from Newport, RI, where her dad was a rock critic, the family moved to LA when he got a job with the Times down there. They landed in Orange County, in fact, a place Joanna left as soon as she could. In fact, the day after she graduated high school, Joanna went to Europe. While she was away, her dad got a job at the San Jose Mercury News and her mom, a pediatric nurse, worked as a public-health official in Berkeley. Joanna was in Europe shortly before Sept. 11, and though she had planned to stay overseas longer, the event made her wonder … but mom said “don't come home.” On a family trip to Ireland when Joanna was 8, she had decided that she wanted to be a bartender. Now it was 2002, and she dropped her bag at a hostel and got a bartending job at O'Shay's Merchant, a pub across the street from the Brazen Head in Dublin. She stayed in Dublin until Christmas, then returned to SoCal, where she had fronted a Riot Grrrrl band called Julia Warhola. But by now, several band members had started doing heroin, so she quit the band and moved to the Bay Area where her family was. Joanna first went to school in the Peralta System in the East Bay, then she got into SF State, where she eventually got her degree. She also finished college at Cambridge in England to study Shakespeare. While going to SF State, she moved to the Mission, specifically 18th and Linda near the Women's Building. She found the place through a Craigslist ad and ending up with six roommates, none of whom she knew previously. Her room set her back only $400, but she wasn't feeling it. From the Mission, Joanna moved to Lower Haight. And 13 years ago, she settled in to her place on Nob Hill, where she lives today. She had a job, hosting then bartending, at Stinking Rose in North Beach. She liked it all right, but when her boss gave credit for a makeover of the bar that she had done to a male co-worker, she knew she had to leave. She gave her two weeks' notice and went for a drink at Vesuvio. While there, a bartender she had befriended offered her the job. She was 21. It was 2003. She's been working at Vesuvio ever since.

Snippet From the Show “When it comes to our spending habits, sometimes the most important thing we need is information.” Whether it's because of inflation or your growing family, as we look ahead to Thanksgiving and Christmas, many of us are facing tighter budgets this year. Danielle is sharing some reminders of simple ways that we cut back a bit and save some money this month: No-Spend Challenge Challenge yourself to not spend money (beyond essentials) for a set period of time. You might try a week, 10 days or a month. An inspiring book on this topic is The Year of Less by Cait Flanders. Wait If you think you want to buy something non-essential, just wait 30 days before purchasing it. You might be surprised to find you no longer want it. Use an app Whether you use an app that automatically moves some of your money into savings, one that finds bargains for you, or one that shows you what subscriptions you can cancel, technology is a great tool for saving money. De-clutter and sell Go through your closets and garage, find items you no longer need or use, and sell them on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist. Bonus is that you get free clean space in your home! Meatless Mondays If you usually eat meat, pick a day of the week to plan one more meatless meal and save on groceries. Plan meals Do a little work ahead of time to plan budget-friendly meals and reduce the number of times you go to the grocery store or order take out. Check out the library Many libraries offer more than just books! Stop by and see what free offerings you might be missing. At the end of today's show, Danielle shares a voice message from listener Lisa who listened to our recent episode 5 Ways to Make Every Day More Catholic and has an idea of her own to share.

In this Raven Shutley exclusive, we discuss her unlikely start in photography, challenges that she triumphed along the way and where you can catch up with her next. Her 2024 calendar is filling up quickly. Reserve your session TODAY! Website: https://ravenshutleystudios.co... From Raven Shutley: I got my first wedding photography gig off of Craigslist. It was a second marriage for two 70-year-olds, they only had five guests, and it was a Thursday afternoon. There was no white dress. No cake. No pomp. No circumstance. Next-to-no budget (I think I got paid around $100). It was the best wedding I'd ever been to. And the one that changed my mind about weddings altogether. Before that day, I swore to myself I would never become a wedding photographer. All those cheesy shove-cake-on-your-face moments and family portraits filled with fake smiles? Hell no, not for me. But that wedding? It showed me that a wedding can be whatever you want it to be. That it doesn't matter how old you are, what size you wear, what abilities you have, which God you do or don't worship, weddings are a celebration of two people finding each other in this wild world. And that celebration should represent your love in whatever way you want it to. “Tradition” and “normal” and “should”? Fuck ‘em. I wanna help you do this thing your way. And I'm honored that you'd trust me with your story. -Raven Shutley ► Luxury Women Handbag Discounts: https://www.theofficialathena.... ► Become an Equus Coach®: https://equuscoach.com/?rfsn=7... ► For $5 in ride credit, download the Lyft app using my referral link: https://www.lyft.com/ici/ASH58... ► Review Us: https://itunes.apple.com/us/po... ► Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/c/AshSa... ► Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/1lov... ► Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ashsa... ► Twitter: https://twitter.com/1loveAsh ► Blog: http://www.ashsaidit.com/blog
The Long Island Serial Killings, also known as the Gilgo Beach Murders or the Craigslist Ripper case, is an unsolved serial murder investigation centered around the discovery of numerous human remains on Long Island, New York. The case has been ongoing since 2010 and remains unsolved as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021.The initial discovery took place on December 11, 2010, when police were searching for a missing woman named Shannan Gilbert, a sex worker who had gone to meet a client in Oak Beach, Suffolk County. During the search, police found the remains of four women in the vicinity of Gilgo Beach. These victims were later identified as Megan Waterman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes, Melissa Barthelemy, and Amber Lynn Costello, all of whom were also involved in sex work.As the investigation progressed, additional remains were discovered in the same area. In March and April 2011, six more sets of remains were found, along with the remains of an unidentified toddler, who came to be known as "Baby Doe" or "Jane Doe #6." The additional victims were identified as Jessica Taylor, Valerie Mack, Jane Doe #6 (the toddler), and an Asian male dressed in women's clothing.The police discovered that many of the victims had connections to the sex trade and had advertised their services on websites like Craigslist.This led investigators to suspect that a serial killer, dubbed the "Long Island Serial Killer" or "Craigslist Ripper," was specifically targeting sex workers in the area.The case gained significant media attention and sparked a large-scale investigation involving local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. The search for additional evidence continued over the years, including the use of cadaver dogs, aerial searches, and the excavation of specific areas.Despite these efforts, no further bodies were found.The investigation faced various challenges and controversies. Shannan Gilbert's disappearance and death were initially treated as unrelated to the serial killings. However, her death was later attributed to accidental drowning. The mishandling of the case and the delayed response to her initial 911 call raised questions about the police's handling of the investigation.Then on July 13th, 2023 an arrest in the case was finally made. The man arrested? Rex Heuermann.In this episode, we hear from Dave Schaller, the man who gave the police the tip about who Heuermann was over a decade ago and even gave them a description of the vehicle the alleged serial killer was driving.(commercial at 9:42)to contact me:firstname.lastname@example.org:He came face to face with an alleged serial killer. 12 years later, his tip helped crack the case | AP NewsThis show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5080327/advertisement

What's on Craigslist? 11-6-2023 …Woman seeks man who loves Toast …Why don't I ever have a missed connection? …Your Butt Crack put me over the edge …Couple seeks person to keep their knees wet while they bathe
The beginning of the story was strangely familiar, like the opening scene in a shopworn police procedural: A woman runs screaming down a street in Oak Beach, a secluded gated community on Long Island's South Shore, only to vanish, it seems, into thin air. It was almost dawn on May 1, 2010. Hours earlier, Shannan Gilbert traveled from New Jersey to see a man who had hired her as an escort from a Craigslist ad. By the time the police arrived, she was gone. They talked to the neighbors, the john and her driver and came up with nothing. A few days later, they ordered a flyover of the area and, again, saw no sign of her. Then they essentially threw up their hands. She went into the ocean, they decided, either hysterical or on drugs.None of this made the news, not at first. A missing sex worker rarely does. Not even when another woman advertising on Craigslist, Megan Waterman, was reported missing a month later.This was, quite obviously, a serial-killer case. The only person not saying as much was the Suffolk County police commissioner, Richard Dormer. “I don't want anyone to think we have a Jack the Ripper running around Suffolk County with blood dripping from a knife,” he said in a frenzied news conference. In fact, they had something almost exactly like that. All eyes were on the Suffolk Police now — wondering who killed these women, if they would ever find Gilbert and what it would take to solve the mystery.This story was recorded by Audm.

On this week's Talkhouse Podcast we've got an award-winning multi-hyphenate that you may have seen on TV, a Broadway stage, or packing out a big theater near you in conversation with a guy whose equally riveting work has mostly been behind the scenes: Sara Bareilles and Rob Moose. I'm not sure where to begin with Sara Bareilles' resume: She found fame with her music, with songs like “Brave” and “Love Song” topping the charts. But in addition to making huge records, she's been a judge on NBC's The Sing-Off, she wrote the music and lyrics for—then eventually starred in—the Broadway production of Waitress, and she co-created the Apple TV series Little Voice and acted in the Peacock series Girls5Eva. And honestly, this is all just the tip of the iceberg. You will be surprised by how remarkably down to earth she seems in this conversation—I was. Rob Moose met Bareilles when he was asked to do some string arrangements for her at a Lincoln Center event organized by Ben Folds. For the past 20 years, that's the kind of work Moose has mostly done: His expert strings have added color and wonder to music by everyone from Sufjan Stevens and The Decemberists to Taylor Swift. He's been a member of Bon Iver and performed live with Jay-Z. Chances are very good that you've heard him without ever hearing his name, because it wasn't until this year that he decided to release music under his own name: It was while on tour with Paul Simon that Moose had the idea to collaborate with some amazing singers, setting their voices to his strings—and nothing more. The result is an EP called Inflorescence, which features Emily King, Brittany Howard, Phoebe Bridgers, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, and—perhaps you guessed by now—Sara Bareilles. It's a fantastic, unexpected set of songs that brings out the best in both the strings and the voices. Check out a little bit of Moose and Bareilles on the song “Extract.” In this conversation, these two chat about how a Craigslist ad changed Moose's life, about how Bareilles was a bit gunshy about collaborating early in her career, and about how you've got to really want to live in New York City—which they both seem to want to do. Enjoy. Thanks for listening to the Talkhouse Podcast and thanks to Rob Moose and Sara Bareilles for chatting.

Yet alongside these doom loops, somewhat anomalously, something good is happening: the transition away from fossil fuels to clean, carbon-free energy is underway, and it is accelerating every day. That transition has become an enormous, sprawling meta-story. It spans the entire economy, from heavy industry to tech to retail. It's unfolding on every level of government, from local zoning boards to the federal government to international treaties. It involves technology, politics, policy, psychology, even philosophy. It's a lot to track. At Volts, I track it. I follow the news, read the trade publications and research reports, talk to the engineers and policy staffers, and think hard about the larger political and social context. Rather than the broad-and-shallow view offered by most publications, I sift through the flotsam for what matters and then go deep on it. The goal is not quantity of information but quality of understanding. I have been reading, writing, and thinking pretty intensely about this subject matter for over 15 years now. Most recently, from 2015 to 2020, I was with Vox, a news and culture publication for which I still occasionally write. Before that, I was with Grist, a publication focused on environmental news, where I was hired in 2004. Over those 15+ years I've written for other publications (like Outside) and appeared on a variety of TV shows, radio programs, and podcasts, like All In with Chris Hayes and On the Media and Pod Save America and Why Is This Happening? I've been quoted or cited by all kinds of fancy-pants people, from Al Gore to several US senators to pundits like Michelle Goldberg and Paul Krugman and Jon Favreau and Tom Friedman to media analysts like Margaret Sullivan and Jay Rosen to climate writers like Elizabeth Kolbert and Bill McKibben and David Wallace-Wells. As for my pre-professional life, here it is in one paragraph: I grew up in a small town in Tennessee, went to a small liberal arts college in another small town in Tennessee, and then, when I graduated, lit out west. I spent a while in Montana getting an MA in Philosophy (with a minor in snowboarding), then went to work on a PhD at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton (three hours north of Calgary, which is three hours north of the border). Edmonton was too cold and academic philosophy was too bleak, so in 1999 I bailed and lit out to Seattle. After a period of professional drift but personal joy (including a wife and a child), I stumbled into the Grist job by sheer luck in 2004. (I happened to see it the first time I ever visited Craigslist.) Been writing ever since. Now I live in Seattle with my wife, two teens, two dogs, and two cats.
