We have to do what we’re doing, looking for services in our industry, to deliver product to make money, we have to do that internally within our organization because we can’t get comfortable in our own skin. And if people start thinking that they’re really comfortable and everything’s always okay when it’s not, it’s really not

If you are the creative type, then you should have more creative time blocked off for you. That way you could constantly be inside that mindset. That does kind of come down to time management as well. Just make sure you get the basics done first

You go to just start That’s just where most people fail in their businesses, is they just never start one. You’ve been sitting on the fence for like 12 months. Now it’s time to get started.
Zachary Beach 22:46
We’re always looking to constantly innovate. That’s actually one of our core values constantly innovate and improve.
Zachary Beach 36:03
We should all be expanding our minds expanding and reaching for something that’s much higher than us. And if what’s going to get us there is some automation and some things that are going to be taken away from technology, I’m more than happy to step upon it.

Look to your employees . Look to your community. And allow them to do some experimenting because usually you get your best information from either your customers or your employees.
Zachary Beach 43:19
If you’re just managing people, then you’re not actually helping them personally develop, which means that your company is not going to always continue to grow and succeed. And eventually some of your major talent will have leave.
Zachary Beach 46:10
Your delivery model is not exclusive from pretty much anything in the business. It is one hundred percent incorporated because it’s the front lines of your business. When you’re looking to make a delivery model, you have to really think of the entire journey that your customer is going to take because that’s the very beginning of their journey.
