    A Flood of Questions (Can We Keep Up?)

    50:49

    On today’s show, our guest Nouman slams us with more questions than any guest before and we do our best to deliver some good answers. Nouman has quickly grown his agency from 3 partners to over 20 employees in just a couple years. But most of Nouman’s clients still come from Upwork or Fiverr and he’s unsure how to break into more legitimate, bigger clients—particularly in countries where cultures are so different. We talk about how to hire the right people, how to overcome cultural barriers, where to find bigger clients, and lots more. ATTENTION: We Need YOU!

    Are High-Ticket Clients Enough?

    51:02

    On today’s show, we have a conversation with Rachel Cooke who designs high-ticket training experiences for massive clients. Rachel’s business is doing well. She’s happy with the amount of money she’s making and where her business is headed.  But she doesn’t necessarily like the fluctuation in revenue and not knowing exactly how much she’ll make in the coming months or years. So Clay and I walk her through a few ideas including how to diversify her product offering in a way that might bring in some more predictable revenue in addition to her high-ticket offering.

    Should Managers Code?—Introducing 'Compiler', an original podcast from Red Hat

    24:41

    To listen to more episodes or subscribe to Compiler, click here. Technology can be bold. But it can also be complicated. Compiler breaks down the big questions about tech and the tech industry in this new original podcast. On today's bonus episode, I share with you a brand new podcast called 'Compiler', an original podcast from Red Hat. Becoming a manager can be a triumphant milestone of working life. It’s often a recognition of leadership and, in the tech industry, technical skill. Many argue those skills necessarily become casualties to the management track. But it’s hard to let go of your creative side to make room for managing others. Can they do both? Should managers code? It’s an old question that never seems to receive a clear answer. From the Red Hat offices to the moons of Jupiter, Compiler explores why it’s such a complex issue. We spoke with Red Hatters who are vocal about what role, if any, managers have in the code base—and why they fight to keep their hands on keys for as long as they can. Featured guests Chris Bredesen Laurie Krebs Mark Little Bob McWhirter Shoshana Collins Support our sponsors so we can keep airing new episodes: Compiler - Demystifying tech, one question at a time.
