Where to focus in the next 90 days to increase profits as you scale, delegate ownership, and free the CEO to work on strategic growth rather than working in the business.

Consulting Agency 2023 Growth Planning Workshop

For 7-figure agency CEOs looking for a better way to scale, and to take home the money they deserve.

Are you ready for aggressive growth in 2023…
without adding more hours to the work week?

If you're brand new or want a small lifestyle business this is NOT for you. 

This is an event for 7-figure CEOs with a proven track record of success, and who are ready to take their business to the next level. 

We will share with you the missing piece to profitably scale agency services that no other scaling models have. 

So far your business has relied on your expertise & your effort. It’s how you got where you are, but it’s also what’s making it so hard to scale your custom services: nothing gets done without you. 

Growing past the 7-figure mark requires a scalable foundation that lets your team operationalize your vision in a way that increases cash flow and profits, and doesn’t exhaust you, the CEO

Putting this foundation in place sets your team up to replace your work in client delivery, sales, and the day-to-day operations of your company so that you’re freed up to focus on growth & the bigger picture.  

Here is what we'll cover...

  1. What top-paid agencies are doing right now to enroll premium clients into six-figure engagements – without test projects.
    Everyone says to raise your prices, but they can't tell you how to do it without hurting sales. We're going to show you how our clients raise their fees 50-600% which adds hundreds of thousands of dollars of profit to their companies. We'll show you how to appeal to your 'profit-sweet-spot clients' who understand your true value and are willing to pay for it so you can stop leaving money on the table.
  2. Find 10 extra hours per week to focus on strategic work in your business.
    How to build capacity for growth and how to get your Ops leaders to run the day-to-day so you can safely step back… Without worrying that results will slip. We'll discuss how to get your team to 'own it' and create a culture of ownership across the company so you feel confident stepping away.
  3. Where to focus to generate the fastest sustainable growth in the least amount of time.
    Growth plan for where to focus in the next 90 days to generate the fastest sustainable growth in the least amount of time. While staying true to your values and personal goals. How to profitably staff up using your existing cash flow so you can scale your agency– without overextending yourself.

THIS IS A LIVE WORKSHOP, where you’ll be sitting down with a group of other 7-figure CEOs to solve the unique problem of scaling a custom-service agency.

The investment is $500 and three hours of your time. 100% of the money is going to Operation Underground Railroad.

During this workshop, we'll guide you to create the right profitable growth without creating a mountain of work for the CEO.

  • How to raise your prices while at the same time growing your revenue and profits… Plus the 2 factors your clients use to decide what they’ll pay for your agency’s services.
  • Why clients don’t trust your team and are constantly asking for you to be on the project… even though you know your team can create great results
  • Why growing sales & marketing is NOT the same thing as scaling beyond yourself… And why being good at the first isn’t enough to master the second
  • The 5 step Scale to Freedom™ system that consulting agencies use to generate sustainable growth that’s less dependent on the CEO.
  • The truth about why being good at what you do isn’t enough to keep growing once you’ve hit 7 figures… and the leadership mindset that will help you scale

A Story From Our 2020 Growth Planning Workshop

Agency co-founders Josh & Marcelo created a plan for turning their 6-figure freelancing endeavor into a 7-figure business. 

They were offering a highly technical service with a months-long sales cycle and a very high cost to deliver. 

They were nervous about growing their team and going after bigger projects, but excited by the possibilities they saw during the Planning Workshop. 

Committed to the process, they put in the work…

…And despite the fact that they were competing for talent with tech giants like Google…

…Or that they were completely bootstrapping their company with no outside funding…

…Or that the COVID-19 Pandemic shut the world down just a few months after the workshop…

They Added Over $1M to Their Company Over the Following 12 Months!

That’s the power of having the right plan, having faith in yourself, your team, and the process, and doing the work to follow through. 


Q: Is this yet another agency guru spouting entry-level drivel about "scaling"?

A: Over the past 10 years, we have refined a proven framework to scale in a much better way! You won't be able to find this anywhere else. What you'll experience is depth and nuance specific to $7-figure consulting companies and agencies. We make big claims and will back them up with dozens of case studies. No theory, just battle-tested strategies to scale profits and freedom. 

Q: Is this 1 day or 2? Is there traveling?

A: This is virtual so you can attend on Zoom. We've sold out the last events we've done and had to turn people away. It's a one-day, 3-hour workshop, and to keep the group sizes small and to accommodate busy schedules, we are offering multiple times. All live hosted by our founder, Mandi Ellefson.

Q: Is there a recording?

A: This is a LIVE agency forum experience where you get customized feedback on your business. If you attend live, you can purchase the recording for an additional $500.

Q: Who is this workshop right for?

A: This is for agency and consultancy CEOs who have a permanent team and generate tangible results for their clients. You should be at or near $1M/year in sales and be fully committed to scaling a lucrative multi-million dollar agency that can run without the CEO. ($500k/yr is fine if you received a private invitation.)

Q: What if I don’t like the workshop?

A: If you don’t think it was one of the most valuable half days you spent all year, we are happy to give you a full refund.

We doubled our agency in 7 months. Being Part of Scale to Freedom helped us double our agency in 7 months. But what was remarkable was that this happened during a very challenging personal time for me. Becoming a Hands-Off CEO has been bliss! I now 100% trust my team.

- Tom Shapiro, Stratabeat, Boston, MA

“Everything you've shared is the well worn path to actually scale your business. And that's why we've been able to scale [our agency] so fast in a five year period where we have a $40 million run rate with one niche market, with one product, one offer. And because of this structure, we've been able to build and scale and even guarantee revenue."

- John Logar, Agency CEO, Consulting unleashed


"One of the most valuable workshops I’ve ever attended! Really fresh approach on risk reversal."

- Cloris Kylie, MBA, Beyond Influencer Marketing



"This was one of the best workshops I’ve ever attended."

- Charles Kirkland, Trinity Marketing Agency


"Must attend for any consulting agency owner who is looking for clarity in terms of scalability, and how to make big profit improvements.”

- Nick Jervis, Samson Consulting Limited


"I loved the workshop. Through the workshop experience, I was able to see a clear path to at least triple my revenue each and every month and it isn’t as far off as I had thought. I had quite an aha- moment that was very powerful for me and I am so pleased to see that I’ll still be able to have the lifestyle of freedom and flexibility that I have created, and at the same time have a much bigger impact. This is so exciting. Thank you for the new clarity I have received in only such a short time."

- Christine Schlonski, The Queen of Sales-Success-Mindset
