I started Jakt, a digital product & innovation studio based in NYC back in 2012. I built it entirely from scratch as its CEO into the $4M/year business that it is today. And it’s definitely been a hell of a ride. I’ve gone through the highest of highs and lowest of lows during all these seven years. There were times I felt happy and fulfilled as I’…
 
When I first started my agency Jakt back in 2012, I didn’t know what I was doing. Sure, I could code and take care of the production work, but the business side of things? I was figuring that out as it came. NYU taught me about many things... but running a profitable agency wasn’t one of them. And in 2015, I realized it didn’t prepare me to fire so…
 
It was 2016. We had just closed at $2M in revenue last year, and I’m feeling great. I couldn't know I would be considering shutting down Jakt a couple of months later. Some of the events that unfolded that year almost broke me. More than half of our team left us in a short period, clients were leaving us, I couldn’t seem to close any new business..…
 
For three years, my agency Jakt hovered around $1.5M to $2M in revenue. From 2017 to 2018, we jumped from $1.7M to $4M. That’s a 134% increase. How did we suddenly break through after a three-year dry spell? You see… There’s no silver bullet, just as there’s no “ONE thing” that I did to finally grow past the threshold we were stuck at. It was the o…
 
Someone asked me two questions on Twitter the other day. He said: “Anthony, what’s the greatest lesson you’ve learned at Jakt? And two - knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently?” You see… I don’t believe there’s “one greatest lesson.” If anything, what I’ve learned throughout seven years while growing a multimillion-dollar a…
 
In the last episode of Reflections of a CEO, I covered the topic of the three big systems that every service-based business/agency has… ...and how you must make sure there isn’t an imbalance between the growth of each three. Because if you don’t, your business might break. This episode is meant to be a Part 2 of that topic, in where I go in-depth o…
 
As you agency grows, stuff can start to break. Over the years at Jakt and through the questions I’ve received from many other agency owners in our community, I realized why this happens. It means you’ve reached the breaking point of the systems that worked for you before. And they need adjusting. In this episode, I’ll dive into the role each system…
 
What do you do when you lose a big customer? This is a question I was asked at servicebasedbusinesses.com, a community of agency owners I moderate who are looking to grow and build their business. A member of the group recently lost an important client. And they’re now in a kind of situation where they have to evaluate letting some people go or oth…
 
Very recently, I got asked the question if I would ever bring an equity partner in Jakt, and why or why not would I bring someone onboard. If it was the case I did, what would be the requirements or the situation needed to be? Now, I’ve found out that looking for the right business partners is a lot like dating and trying to find the person you wan…
 
I was asked in my private slack community, Service Based Businesses: - What do people use in terms of a system or prompt or format to remind themselves about their vision for their company, and the exciting goal they are working on? - How can you plan your weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly goals more visually? Join the group & get access to answer…
 
People ask me all the time: How do you get new business? And I wish I could tell you there’s some magic trick or a super awesome FB Ads formula… But it’s actually really simple: referrals and partnerships. In today’s podcast, I dive into the strategic approach for channel partnerships we used at Jakt to funnel new business, and the steps you should…

No matter if they are friends, family, or employees... ...a lot of them might struggle to grasp the difficult challenges you’re facing: How you’re feeling, the risks you are going th…

In this episode, I want to answer a question I received on how I decide to fire someone and how to do it. It’s an extremely complicated thing that doesn’t necessarily get easier.
