John Vuong: Leaving the 9 to 5 to Build a 7-figure Marketing Agency


July 21, 2022

Do you know an opportunity when you see one, and more importantly, are you willing to take that risk? 

Saying ‘yes’ led this service-based business owner from a 9 – 5 job to a seven-figure business. 

There’s a saying in entrepreneurship: “you’ve got to jump off the cliff and build your wings on the way down.” 

Today’s guest did precisely that  – with no experience in marketing, he quit his job to launch a marketing agency. 

His journey to a seven-figure business isn’t an overnight success story; most businesses are not; a success story is made up of time and work that goes unseen. 

Tune into this episode to learn:  

  • How he delivered a marketing service he had no idea how to deliver 
  • Starting a service niche business with zero experience 
  • The mistakes that helped him get to seven figures 
  • Why his zone of genius was both a gift and a hindrance to growth 
  • How he uses processes and systems to encourage learning and development in his team
