Today, my guest is Ryan Malone.
Ryan is the Founder and CEO of SmartBug Media
SmartBug is the #1 rated inbound marketing agency and a Diamond HubSpot partner.
Ryan started the agency over 10 years ago when building a distributed team was something that most people thought was absolutely crazy.
Now approaching 60 full time employees, Ryan and his team are redefining what a successful agency looks like.
In this episode, we cover:
-The terrible former boss that influenced Ryan’s future cultural values
-How SmartBug has scaled their recruiting while running a distributed team
-How SmartBug completely shuts down 1x per quarter to crush professional development
And much more
