04: Organizing a Creative Agency with Lauren Mann

Listen to this episode

My Guest: Lauren Mann

Lauren is one of the most creative designers I’ve ever worked with. I’ve never seen her create the same type of design twice! She has cracked the code on balancing a creative agency while still being efficient, meeting deadlines and having an actual schedule.

In this episode we talk to Lauren about her struggle to create more time for herself. With work taking up most of her time, even with all the delegation and efficiency, she is not making enough time for herself, working nights even though she hoped not to and unsure how to get any more efficient than she already is.


Hey, I’m good enough to charge for my offerings!
How to set steady pricing for creative endeavors that always take different amounts of time

How to hire and not lose money
