In Part 1 of Jeff Schneider’s turnaround story, his business, Marketing Ninjas, was on the edge of failure. But, Jeff was determined to keep his business alive. With the support of his coach, Mary Rydman, he began changing the way he worked, turning down time-consuming clients, and building a solid foundation that would allow him to finally scale beyond himself.

But scaling meant bringing in new people, and Jeff needed to focus on making the right hires—people who would consistently give his customers an experience they’d keep coming back for. In this episode, Jeff discusses how his Brand Commitment and hiring process helped him turn his business into one that makes him and his team truly proud.

Jeff Schneider’s business, Marketing Ninjas, was on the brink of failure. He was putting everything he had into it, and getting only chaos in return: 80+ hour work weeks in his basement office, hardly enough money to pay the bills, and a marriage that was falling apart. With the support of his coach, Mary Rydman, Jeff worked to turn things around.

Now, nobody loves Mondays more than Jeff. He has a real office, with seven employees and is earning nine times as much as he was before—all with a smaller group of deeply engaged clients. But it isn’t just that Jeff’s business is better, it’s that his entire life has changed.

This is the story of how he did it.

When Jeff Venn started Create Studios, a web design and digital marketing company, the business was exactly what he wanted.

For ten years, Higher Standards Academy was just Jerilyn Kass. She was doing the work of the business—teaching SAT prep to college-bound students—and growing slowly but steadily. For a while, “slow and steady” worked for her. But soon, comfort grew into impatience, and she realized faster growth would require an outside perspective to help her focus on the areas of her business she was neglecting.

With the help of her coach, Rachel Clark, Jerilyn grew revenues by 40%, hired a team of people she loves working with, took her first (almost) unplugged vacation and, now, feels like the leader of her business for the first time.
