Fathom is a free app that records, transcribes and highlights your calls so you can focus on the conversation. It is the only start-up to be part of the 50 zoom app launch partners yet it is number 1 on the marketplace! In this episode Ryan is joined by founder and CEO of Fathom, Richard White. He talks about his experiences in the start-up world across the years including working with the founders of twitch and selling a start-up on Ebay! He also talks all about his company Fathom and what they are doing differently, where he sees the future of tech going and why he believes there are just 10 go to market strategies. To skip the Fathom waitlist simply head to the link below! fathom.video/pod KEY TAKEAWAYS Fathom is focusing on a consumer model currently, where they focus on virality and b2b growth, monetisation will follow. Fathom is the number one zoom app on their marketplace, they are also the only start-up to be included in Zooms 50 launch partners. A combination of AI and great user tools enables Fathom to allow users to keep track of what happens in their calls in real time, highlight important moments, key things that are mentioned and so much more and it's all free! With a background in computer science, Richard came into the start-up world when he bravely told the company Kiko Calendar that their product was technically good, but the design was terrible and he ended up working with them. Richard got to meet some great people when working with Kiko Calendar, reddit was founded in the same room as Kiko Calendar and the guys that did Kiko went on to create twitch! For Fathom, Richard has been able to build on his previous experience with start-ups. He was able to start building the product, the team and raising money from day 1. Richard wants Fathom to remain as a free service but in time will be putting up a paywall for certain features, so that when the product gets adopted on a wider scale by teams there are additional products and services they will want to use and therefore pay for. Growth rate, retention rate and k-factor are the key metrics Fathom have been tracking before deciding to move into the next phase of monetisation. K factor is essentially tracking each user at sign up and how many sign ups they then generate. A K factor of over 1 is considered to be viral. This is the stage Fathom are at. Richard designed Fathom so that everyone in the meeting could see it, as well as this following legal and consent laws/guidelines, it also is self-promotion for Fathom. Any attendee of a meeting where it is being used is a potential sign-up. Fathom run a points system for all users, they also run a programme for their top users. They reward their top users with gifts such as swag boxes and also equity stakes in Fathom itself! As a fully remote company, Richard and his team rely heavily on the apps slack and hubspot, they are the two apps Richard ranks the highest! The AI tools and models Richard is seeing in the tech space means that things are becoming truly automated for the first time, this is where he sees the future of tech. BEST MOMENTS “We're human, we like seeing other humans, it really adds context to what is being said” “There's some % chance that any attendee at a meeting where fathom is being used, will lead to a sign up” “All the things initially marketed as AI weren't AI…for the first time we are starting to hit a tipping point where these things are starting to be really useful” Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"

What do you do when you start to feel that your brand no longer reflects the evolution and growth of your business?When you start to feel, dare I say it, self-conscious when you're asked about your business at a party, sure that the name “Stevie Says Social” will diminish your authority or how seriously you're taken at networking events?When friends and family still ask you to try and help them get into their Instagram account, because your name still has “social” in it despite NOT teaching social media at all — “Don't you have a little social media business — I only have 50 followers too, and I'm hoping you can help?!” they say, innocently.And when that nagging feeling, deep down, suggests a growing disconnect between the time, effort and importance you place on your business, and the way it is viewed in the eyes of those hearing “Stevie Says Social” for the first time.You re-brand, that's what — and this year, that's exactly what I'm doing.Right now? My brand kind of feels like I'm still getting around in the same outfit that I wore when I was a gawky teenager. I feel a sense of urgency to “grow up”, and for the vision that I have for my business, the importance that I place on it and the true impact that it has on so many lives through the people that we serve.I'm tired of feeling silly saying “Stevie Says Social” when someone asks what my business name is.I'm READY to step into bigger shoes and build a vision that doesn't depend solely on me.And, if I'm really honest? I feel held hostage by an identity that doesn't fit anymore.And so, as I embark on MY branding and business evolution (of which MUCH more will be shared later on in the year), today's podcast episode is dedicated to five signs that might be an indication to YOU that it's time to do the same.Here's five signs that it might be time to rebrand your business:✔️ You've experienced a significant business evolution (but your brand hasn't kept up)✔️ You're not proud to share your brand with strangers✔️ Your mission has grown, and no longer fits the container of your brand✔️ You no long want it to be just about you✔️ A change is as good as a holiday--------Want to create, launch and scale a flagship online course?Here's a few ways I can help you:1.

It's easy to get wrapped up in the hustle of entrepreneurship and lose yourself along the journey. For nearly twenty years I struggled to understand that the most important relationship you will ever have in life is the one staring back at you in the mirror. And in today's episode, I get raw with you and share a different podcast than what you hear on Fridays. I had the pleasure to be interviewed by my friend Laura Poburan on all things relationships and much of what we talk about has never been shared until a few weeks ago. This is one of the most raw and vulnerable episodes I've ever done. Listen in as you discover why it's so important to accept yourself before you help others, how you can create meaningful and lasting relationships with yourself and others, plus so much more.Listen in to discover The most important relationship you can ever develop in your life How to create containers to avoid blurry lines in relationshipsAdvice for coaches who aren't willing to be transparent and vulnerableHow to empower others in a relationship without creating codependency How to ensure you are in alignment so you can build a business that thrives Connect With Laura on Her Instagram Notable Quotes & Time Stamps 00:00 Introduction To Why I Am Sharing This Podcast With You 07:36 I always cared about people and wanted to connect deeper, but I never realized that my heart was in the passenger seat and my trauma was the driver- George Bryant 08:14 On paper I had everything that I wanted: a New York Times bestseller, number one app in the world, millions of social media followers, and was forced to develop a relationship with the number one person that I'm guaranteed to spend the rest of my life with whether I liked it or not-myself. 15:35 You are unable to create a safe container filled with intimacy and vulnerability for people that you don't really personally know until you are able to be intimate and vulnerable with yourself first and make yourself feel safe.- Laura Poburan16:27 Without our own intimacy, we can't have clear boundaries and containers for our energy. - George Bryant 19:49 It's easy to get wrapped up into stories, posts, and content. But we have to honor where we currently are and then make sure we're being at least integrous with ourselves so that what we're sharing matches and aligns to where we are. - George Bryant 26:06 Leadership is not at the finish line. Leadership is willing to take the journey next to somebody and having the humility to acknowledge where you are. _ George Bryant 29:09 The reason I use a lighthouse in my branding is because a Lighthouse's job is not to jump in the water. The Lighthouse's job is to remain consistent and congruent, constantly spinning that light- George Bryant 35:48 - Blurred lines come from us getting disconnected from what we said we wanted to do and not holding ourselves accountable to what it looks like.- George Bryant 45:28 - You're responsible for saving your own ship because no one is coming to save you- George Bryant

Today's episode is with Ian Wong, co-founder and CTO of Opendoor. Before founding Opendoor, Ian was Square's first data scientist, where he developed machine learning models and infrastructure for fraud detection. In today's conversation, we cover his essential advice for how to integrate data science into your startup. As Ian puts it, in the early innings it might make sense for your startup to be operations heavy. But as you start to scale, data science becomes a critical component for running a business with longevity in mind. We dive into how both Square and Opendoor approached this transition. Along those lines, we discuss some of the early considerations for your fledgling data science team, including the type of folks to hire for the early team, like whether to look for generalists or specialists, and how to set up your interview loops. Ian also dives into his lessons on structuring the data science function so that it's deeply integrated with the rest of the technical org. Next, we dive into some of his biggest lessons as a first-time founder and CTO, including his practice with Opendoor's leadership team of doing pre-mortems to predict why something might not work. He also encourages founders to run through a bi-yearly exercise of re-writing their job rec.

Ryan is joined by Michael Brooks in this episode. Michael is both the founder and ceo of goLance, a freelancer platform that is both fully remote and staffed completely by freelancers. Michael talks to Ryan about how they differentiate themselves from other freelancer platforms, what he has managed to build through the power of relationships, communication and trust as well as the highs and lows of having a fully remote, fully freelance team. KEY TAKEAWAYS GoLance try and provide as much value as they can on places like Quora, LinkedIn and in Facebook communities, they find this is a great way to market themselves and the acquire a lot of clients and referrals this way. GoLance works like a recruitment agency except it's all digital and all jobs and candidates are freelancers. They differentiate themselves from other freelancer platforms by assuring quality. There is a lot of cultural work attached to what goLance do, they don't simply match jobs to freelancers, they ensure the culture fit is right as well as the experience level and communication style. Pricing at goLance works similar to Airbnb, they charge a flat rate of 7.9% which represents great value to both client and freelancer. Some freelancer platforms, such as Upwork, are very transactional and they are also strict about how communication between freelancers and companies takes place. Golance are a lot more open and transparent, they want communication to flow and take place as it should so have little restriction on what is and isn't allowed. Michael isn't frightened to turn down business or capital that he knows doesn't work for goLance. It's more important to him to get the right fit and work with people that align with the values and culture of goLance. For a 7-year old company, getting to 40 million plus revenue is exciting, but something Michael also finds incredible is the fact that some of goLance's freelancers have earnt 7 figures with them in this time too! A hands-on approach to managing relationships and their freelancers is something Michael is keen to keep going at goLance. It allows them to have complete control over the process and the quality for their clients too. Having a human being reach out and connect with you, giving you answers you need, is so much more effective than ad-spend. Giving value on Quora and similar sites has been a winning strategy for goLance. When you're in touch with your market, you can drive your business to meet their needs. Find a problem in your industry, look at how your competitors are addressing the problem, then look to see how you can solve it. Building a remote culture, especially with a fully freelance team can be a challenge but there are ways to make it easier, such as having multiple interviews with prospective freelancers and finding creative ways to make them feel part of your company. BEST MOMENTS “Providing value is the best marketing one can do” “No one feels hurt, everyone feels like they have a lot of value” “We want to build relationships that last forever” “You can drive your business by understanding the responses of your community” “Find creative ways to create culture and give people a sense that their part of your company” Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"

Do you know what is the number one thing that makes a difference in whether or not your potential customers choose to buy from you or not? It's not what you're selling, or how it works, or the features that are better than your competitor's. It all comes down to value. The reality is, if you can't articulate the value you will deliver to your prospective customer, then they won't be able to see why they should buy from you. In today's new post, I'm giving you the roadmap to more consistent sales (spoiler alert: it's a process that gets you thinking backwards from how most people approach their selling strategy - and it really works!). Read on to learn how believing in your own value and clearly communicating that value will get your prospects wholeheartedly buying into what you're selling - without even thinking about lowering your prices. How most people start off on the wrong foot when selling I've seen this so many times, over and over again: People who are trying to sell something immediately launch into their pitch with the what, why, how. They start with what they're selling, how it works, and list off the reasons their prospective customer should buy it. And that, I hate to say, is completely wrong. And it definitely doesn't get people to buy. This is because starting your pitch this way is all about you. You see, it's not about showing up and throwing up a laundry list of features and benefits, which is what most people tend to do. When you do that, you've already lost your potential customer. You've got to begin with their why, not yours My husband Jeffrey says, “Learning why they buy is 100 times more powerful than learning how to sell. Because if you know why they buy, then selling becomes easy.” Most people don't buy from reason or logic; most people buy emotionally. And so you need to start with where your customer is at. And where they're at is they have a problem that needs solving - it's really that simple. Once they then perceive your value to be worthy of solving their problem, then they begin to consider your solution. And the sale is easier from there. Start by assessing if you've uncovered your prospective customer's why. Why does the customer need your offer? What problem are you solving for them? How does your solution get them from where they are now to where they want to go? They're starting with emotion. They have a problem, and they need a solution. Problems become emotional. So if you want to stop being like everyone else who starts with the factual and logical (ie. the what and how), then your job is to think backwards, which is really forwards, in my book. Think about this: What happens after your customer purchases. And what happens if they don't buy? Get them to envision both of these paths. Get them to envision what all the good things are that are going to happen after they purchase, so they can begin to understand that their outcome will be amazing. By working backwards and showing them what life will be like with their problem solved, you're showing them that what you have to offer is of value to them. You're showing that the value in your offer far exceeds the outcome that they're going to have long term. Believing in your own value So really, what it boils down to is being able to communicate your value. But when it comes to value, I've seen so many people have a hard time promoting, communicating, articulating their value because it's often easier to sell someone else's product or service than it is to talk about yourself. Growing up, we're taught to be humble and not speak too much about ourselves. And so when it comes to articulating value, I see a lot of business owners and entrepreneurs have a problem really speaking up about themselves. But that's because you're believing or choosing to believe that this is speaking about yourself, when really what you're doing is speaking about the value of your offer, the value your customer is going to gain by working with you. It's time for you to separate your work from your personal identity. These are two different things. Ask yourself: How strong is my belief in the value I provide? Do I believe my customer is better off having purchased from me? Remember - value is not only articulated through words. Value is also articulated through nonverbal communication. Your customers are perceptive and can pick up on whether or not you believe the value is there or not. When you wholeheartedly believe in something and believe in your value, that message is going to get transferred through everything you're saying. Scaling your value Now, when you're just starting out, or when you're trying to get to that 100k mark, it's about discovering what your value is. And I remember throwing out lots of different offers, trying different things, really trying to figure out how to differentiate myself from the competition, and where that sweet spot of my value was. Sound familiar? But once you grasp that and once you pass that 100k mark, it becomes about scaling your value. It's about figuring out how to deliver what your customers value at scale. Now, you're not creating a new program over and over again, and you're not customizing over and over again. You're now known for this certain thing that you deliver so much value in, so now it's time to consider how you can replicate that and grow that at scale, so that you're not working around the clock and trading time for dollars all the time. And that's where you begin to leverage your ability, your skills, your knowledge, and expertise. That's where you begin to really grow at scale. Wrapping up It all begins with communicating your value, and really understanding for yourself what that value is. Because if you don't know what the value is, and you don't know how you specifically help people, how are your potential buyers going to understand either? They're not mind readers. They want to see that you are confident - certain - that you can solve their problem. Your customers are buying value. When they perceive the value to be higher than the price, then they buy. When they don't perceive the value to be high enough, then they don't buy and they blame it on price. But it's not about the price. It's about the value. So many people who don't know how to articulate their value end up discounting their prices. They believe people aren't buying because the price is too high. But lowering your prices won't change the fact that you didn't solve your customer's problem. You haven't demonstrated to them that there is enough value to get them to want to buy. Need help? If you feel like you're not articulating your value in the best way, then work with me or a coach to determine what the value you're offering is and how you can articulate that. Once you learn how to communicate your value to your potential customers, you'll never feel like you need to lower your prices again. You can instead show up and serve from this authentic place that's full of value because you know exactly how you help your clients. And they know exactly why they should buy from you.

In this episode of The Private Practice Elevation Podcast, you're going to get a glimpse into the various stages over the lifespan of a growing private practice. Many therapists start out as solo practitioners, building a private practice around one-on-one client work. Over time, they may find themselves full of clients - so much so that they have to start a waiting list or refer new clients to other therapists outside of their practice. So they shift their focus to hiring associates and start building their group practice and continue growing. But there's actually more than one way to scale a private practice. And with the rise of online therapy and the ability to reach more people nationwide, opportunities are increasing! So, today we're chatting with seasoned entrepreneur and private practice owner Gordon Brewer all about the path he's taken over the life of his private practice. Thinking about the next 5 years and nearing retirement, Gordon has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to scaling a private practice so that it serves his clients and aligns with his life values. So pull up a chair as I chat with my friend, Gordon, as he takes behind the scenes and tells the story of his own growth and scaling a private practice. In This Episode, You'll Learn: The different stages you can go through on your way to scaling your private practice from solo practice to group practice and beyond Some of the challenges and opportunities at each stage for increasing your profits and growing your business Understanding your “why” so that you can create a business that aligns with your values and life The importance of creating a great website for your private practice and how that can impact your growth Tips for naming your private practice and how that can impact your marketing and success Why you should be outsourcing in your private practice, some of the tasks you can begin outsourcing, and some of the ways to find people to outsource tasks to This Episode Is Brought To You By Subscribe & Review in Apple Podcasts If you're not yet subscribed to the podcast I want to encourage you to do that today.
