      Networking doesn’t suck – Network your way up!
      What your real core competencies are and how they will lead to a “full service retainer”
      Developing and identifying strong partnerships or “power partners”
    • 5. Here to develop business?
      Where are you business cards?
      Do you have any on you right now?
      If so, how many?
      How many new people have you met today?

    • 10. Take away
      Think about your expertise
      Re-evaluate your true capabilities, talents and what you are “best at” or perceived to “be best at”
      Don’t fool yourself, know your true limits as an agency. Don’t be afraid to know your limits, your clients will respect you for that.
      Take the time to identify potential power partners here in the room with the exercise we just executed.
    • 11. Random tip of the day
      You don’t need to exercise time management, you need to stop procrastinating!

    • 12. Evaluate “Your” Abilities
      No one knows your agency better than you
      No one can sell better than you
      Then why are you sitting behind your desk worrying about operations or accounts receivables?
      No one can design better than you
      No one can come up with better ideas than you
      Then why are you sitting behind your desk…..?
    • 13. Things that can be outsourced
      Project management
      All of these things can be easily outsourced to either a part time employee or a vendor. Do what you are best at!
    • 14. Build Strategic Partnerships
    • 15. Have a client criteria
      Lucid’s criteria
      Do they get it
      Can they afford us
      Do they need what we offer
      Are they willing to work with us
      Are they sketchy
      “If you don’t stand for something, you will stand for
      nothing!” Same goes for the clients you take on, they are
      a reflection of your agency.
    • 16. Is Your Agency Average?
    • 17. Notable quotes
      “…don’t think that you are entitled to success, yet you are entitled to opportunity”
      - Mike Domek, sold for$265M
      “Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most won’t, so you can live the rest of your life like most people can’t” -unknown
      (same is applicable for the agency business, sacrificing a few years to be the best designer, developer, UX, etc…)
