Episode 4: The Creative Balance: How Chase Reeves Built ???? (FS004)

As a business builder you absolutely have to learn to balance the creative stuff with the business stuff.

This is something Chase Reeves is well versed in. He’s one of the hosts of the show and we get to know him in part 2 of the Meet Your Hosts series.

In this entertaining episode he shares some lessons learned as he navigated his career through media and project management stuff to reading LifeHacker.com for 10 hours a day to newborns and lay-offs and start-ups, oh my!

There’s much to glean from his colorful way of looking at these things. (five finger shoes, anyone?)

We also answer a listener question about how to keep the growth of a membership site from stalling (one particular metric is incredibly important).
