In order to win more clients or grow your business, there is something you must understand.

Your success as a consultant, agency owner, or entrepreneur is dependent on one thing…

Your success is dependent on YOU. 

Your ability to level yourself up in skillets and mindsets is the single greatest lever you can pull to improve your business results.

A wise mentor once told me “Your business is simply a reflection of yourself.”
That couldn’t be more true. 

Many people look for a silver bullet on how to win more clients, double their rates, or fix all of their problems. 
But the truth is there is no silver bullet.

There is simply growing and developing as an entrepreneur and a leader. 

Through the content I produce, my goal is to help you level up across 3 key areas:

Marketing - Your ability to generate leads for your business.

Sales - Your ability to turn leads into cash. 

Leadership - Your ability to build systems and empower people to deliver on the products & services that you sell. 

Who am I:

I have been self-employed as a consultant / agency owner and entrepreneur for 10+ years. 

Early in my career, I built up a creative agency to generate over $1M in revenue and landed multiple Fortune 500 clients and A-List touring artists. 
After leaving this agency, I went out on my own to start up a web design and digital marketing agency. 

Along the way, I uncovered my true talents and path were not in doing the technical work, but instead my strength was in selling the work. 

This took me on a journey of consulting for other consulting firms and agencies on sales, marketing and business development. In this journey I generated millions of dollars of new business for the companies that I worked with.

And eventually this lead to me launching a done-for-you Linkedin Lead Generation service that has now scaled to over $50k MRR

Yet this is just the start of my journey. I am on the path to build businesses that command millions of dollars of revenue, and this blog is a place for me to document and teach what I learn along the way.


“In just a few months, we had our first signed deal with one of our dream clients and proposals in the works for several others. Jake did exactly what he said he would do, he won us our dream clients.

Jake has been instrumental in building our sales team and sales processes. He first helped us refine our value proposition and messaging which has made a massive difference in our business.

He has also been meeting weekly with my sales and marketing teams to set priorities, coach them and give feedback.

My schedule is jam packed with high quality meetings with prospects as a result. I would highly recommend Jake to any agency looking to build, scale or optimize their sales team.
— Albert Stepanyan, CEO of Develandoo
Going through the teardown process with Jake was one of the best things we’ve done for our business.

It provided clarity around the direction we wanted (and frankly, needed) to go.

He helped us rethink our entire sales process. We’re already put some of his key ideas into action and see that it’s making a huge difference.

I’m blown away. We closed our first customer within two months of starting our Linkedin outreach. Needless to say, we are happy! The quality of the people and the way these conversations start on Linkedin has been amazing

The lessons I teach come in several different formats:

My Blog - These are in depth articles teaching individual topics. 

Working Without Pants Podcast - This podcasts consists of two formats. Interview style where I dissect the stories of other successful agency owners and entrepreneurs and monologue style shows where I teach the lessons I learn along the way. 

The Daily - Every day, I learn something new, and every day, I teach what I learn to you through The Daily in 1,200 characters or less. You can also see the daily by adding me on Linkedin or Facebook.

Your ability to achieve what you want in business is dependent on your ability to level up as an entrepreneur and a leader. 

My goal with this site is to create content that helps you level up your marketing, sales and leadership skills.
