Servant Leadership Mastery in the Digital Marketing Arena, with Josh Nelson

Ever wondered how the greats of digital marketing turned their fortunes around? Join us as we unravel the secrets to success with Josh Nelson, the genius behind a flourishing HVAC SEO agency and the Seven Figure Agency coaching program. From his raw beginnings to the collapse of his first agency, Josh bares it all, offering an exclusive take on the philosophies that redefined his approach to business. His ‘learn, do, teach’ mantra isn’t just a catchy phrase—it’s a transformative method that took him from learning the ropes to educating a legion of digital marketers.

Wading through the digital marketing world can be overwhelming, but Josh’s story serves as a beacon, guiding agency owners towards their own success. We dissect his journey from offering a simple course to orchestrating an elaborate coaching program, drawing attention to the immense power of a focused niche and the art of client retention. Our conversation extends beyond strategies and numbers, touching upon the heart of customer relationships and the transformative impact of treating clients as valued partners in growth.

We tackle the myth of the overnight success, advocating for patience and steady progress. We dish out the strategies that keep us grounded, and we debunk the idea that setbacks are the end of the road. Whether you’re a seasoned leader or an aspiring entrepreneur, this episode is packed with insights to fuel your journey towards becoming a catalytic force in your field.

This time of year, many small business and agency owners think about taxes, and I wanted to share my experience with an amazing accounting and tax professional, John Leland. I’ve been working with John for 6 years, and in that time John has proven to not only understand the small business/entrepreneurship space, but the non-profit/church space as well. John’s company, The Honest Accountant, is a full-service CPA firm that provides expert services to founders and CEOs. This can range from entity creation to accounting system setups/clean-ups, monthly accounting work, outsourced CFO, taxes and more! I recommend John Leland often; that’s the highest compliment I can give. If you’re looking for an accounting or tax professional, reach out to John. He’s the real deal.


We’re just over the halfway point of the first quarter of 2024. Has this year been different so far from last year? Or more of the same? Are you breaking old habits and sticking with new ones?

How can you get out of your own way and take steps to become the leader that your team and your company need you to be? It’s not just going to happen. It takes intentionality. And that’s where coaching comes in.

As an Executive Coach specializing in Mindset and Leadership, I work with entrepreneurs, founders, executives, and C-suite leaders who want to become catalytic in their leadership. Through 1:1 coaching, my clients move from where they are (stuck) to where they want to be.

For February, I currently have 1 slot available for new clients. I don’t accept every person who approaches me about coaching; in fact, I turn down those who I believe are not ready or a good fit for what I do. If you’d like to explore whether Executive Coaching is your next step toward the impact you want to make, let’s talk. No hard sales pitch. If it’s not right for both of us, I’ll tell you so. My goal is to help leaders get out of their own way, stop breaking their own businesses and teams, and move into being catalytic in their impact and their legacy. If you’re ready, book a time for us to talk.
