In this episode, I interview Salome Fourie, the Founder of The Fourie Agency, a business management agency based in Kansas, USA. The Fourie Agency helps six-figure business owners scale their systems business through systems and team management. Salome is a certified online business manager and passionate about learning something from her clients.

The agency was founded in January 2021. Due to drastic changes brought by COVID, Salome’s corporate job was affected. She decided to get a certification so she can still utilize her skill in marketing and help more clients in a more holistic way. In less than a year, she found an incredible growth of 500%. She is now working all over the world with different clients and different industries.

Salome recommended that to build a sustainable culture to help with growth, there must always be open communication between the people involved. She said, “If you want people to stay long term with you, make it fun for them to want to work with you. Appreciate the things that they do well, and recognize that verbally.”
