“if you own a business my strong advice is from day one work hard to not be the business. What I mean by that is to not have any functional role in the business at all. To really be able to sit back and work on your business from a much higher level. And I say it for a couple of reasons: 1) I think it will be a lot more gratifying when you don’t have to be involved in any particular functions unless you decide you want dip your toes in the water. 2) You will create the highest value for your business when you are not involved in it. And the third one because this is my business. There is a date on the calendar that most people look to sell their businesses. That date may be of your choosing but it may not be of your choosing. And when it’s not of your choosing it’s usually not under good circumstances like you’ve got a partnership breakup, a divorce, you’ve been diagnosed with an illness. But if you have been running your business so that it is self-managed that date won’t matter because your business can continue to operate and function because it hasn’t been reliant on you and it will maintain value, your people will be okay, your legacy will be okay. So, I think all entrepreneurs who own businesses should work very hard at creating a self-managing business”…[Listen for More]

Rory F Stern just might be the only digital marketing and advertising expert you’ve ever met who also has a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. His initial goals were to use that training and become a behavioral profiler with the FBI. However, that all changed when he found himself in the position of being a stay-at-home Dad to his then 6-month old daughter. Despite his best efforts, being a stay-at-home Dad wasn’t enough and he still felt a calling to serve others and impact the world. That led to his discovery of digital marketing. For 8-years, Dr. Stern was a very sophisticated jack of all trades who worked for the paycheck. The underlying passion was missing until he discovered media buying. His freelance work led him to a position within a fast-growing Facebook ad agency as a copywriter. This was before Facebook ad agencies “were on every corner.” Here he was tasked with learning how to write ad copy that ultimately beat the existing controls. Not being a classically trained copywriter, and really just a high-performer, he never realized just what it meant to his skill set when he was able to beat the control 90% of the time. After a few different roles, Dr. Stern started RFS Digital Media, LLC in 2016. What started out as a one-man show grew to a point where the business had 8 campaign managers and a team that was managing roughly $8.25 million dollars in ad spend on Facebook by 2018. RFS Digital Media’s clients have included one of the largest direct response financial publishers in the world, many well-known (and not so well-known) supplement companies, e-commerce brands, experts and more.
