Meet Our Team
We know what you're wondering, and the answer is YES.
You DO have what it takes.
And we're not just saying that to make you blush.
We seriously believe you are rock solid awesome. And in our lexicon, that means that you've got the brains, the guts, and the experience to establish yourself as the go-to authority in your niche.
You’re here because you want to grow your business with right-fit clients, steady leads, and undeniable authority. And because you’ve been around the block long enough to understand that business as usual doesn’t work, you’re looking for strategies, systems, and smarts that can honestly propel you to the next level.
Since 2009, we've worked with hundreds of agencies, coaches, and consultants who have started out exactly where you're at now, and they've used the principles inside The Authority Sales Machine to discover possibilities they didn't even know existed.
They've launched podcasts.
They've written books.
They've raised their prices.
They've spoken on stages.
They've repositioned their brands.
They've become authorities.
They've doubled, tripled, and quadrupled their revenue.
They've expanded their network.
The list is long, but the lesson is simple: When you partner with a team who pours into your success like it's their own, you become unstoppable.
We aren't shy about our values.
And fair warning: You'll see them lived out in everything we do.
We're with you
(to the end of the line).
Sure, we can't claim the genius of the quote.
That belongs to Captain America.
But at least now you understand our level of commitment.
We don't back down. We don't quit. And we never give up.
Even more, you'll never find us shouting directions from the safety of a mountaintop.
Instead, we'll always be right beside you, carrying your pack and making sure every step you take carries you exactly where you need to go.
Generosity isn't a commodity.
You can't bottle it up and use it to twist and turn your way to success.
You can only give it away with the goal of helping others be better.
We lead with generosity, giving away our best ideas and our best resources because for us, the best return on investment is watching YOU flourish.
We invest in
We're not chasing fame or fortune or unending influence.
Instead, we're investing in impact, the kind that's measured through relationships and communities.
So whether we're helping you with thought leadership, content strategy, business systems, or more, we know that every suggestion we make has far-reaching ripple effects.
And we're here to make sure those count.
We aren't just two guys crazy about marketing.
We've got an entire team behind us.
Build and scale your business (with advice from America’s top business owners).
Tune in to one of the country's highest rated podcasts as leading agencies, coaches, and consultants share how to launch, scale, and grow a business.
The only magic we'll ever endorse is Stephen's lexicon.
Stephen pulls out his Midwestern charm in nearly every sentence, so here's a guide to help you prepare.
1. Holy Bananas
He says this when he's beyond excited, so don't just listen to the words he speaks. Watch his eyes move, too. You won't be disappointed.
2. Rock Solid Awesome
You'll know Stephen is impressed when these three little words escape from his mouth. He's a child of the 80s. He can't help himself.
3. In Full Transparency
Pull up a seat and draw in close. When you hear this, Stephen is about to drop some major truth bombs.
4. Onward With Gusto
We imagine Stephen is pretending he's about to board a Star Trek ship. Again, child of the 80s.
5. My Handwriting Is Terrible
Yes it is, Stephen. Yes it is. But your teaching is off the charts, so we forgive you.
