The Definition of Success
Logan likes to ask himself, “Did we successfully help someone else succeed- one of our clients- and did we receive positive feedback, more future return business and good referrals from that client. That’s a pretty strong signal that what we’re doing, we’re doing successfully.”
Big Time Business Blooper
Logan tells us about his failure to make Sales as important of a factor as it needed to be from the beginning, and how it has taken him a long time to educate himself on building a sales strategy.

The Road To “Big Time”
What makes V3 Media Marketing a Big Time Small Business? “The biggest level-up has come in the past 6-8 weeks with the hiring of a biz dev sales person. Someone with over 15 years of experience who’s highly motivated to get out there and makes sales,” Logan says. Listen to find out what else he attributes his success to.

Doing It Over Again
What would Logan do differently if he had to start all over again? “Without a doubt, if I was to do it all over again, I would have found at least one partner, maybe two, to share in the startup effort, the startup costs, the startup mentality with me,” he says. In the podcast, Logan expands on why two is better than one.
