Episode 300

The Acquisition of UGURUS

With Marc Gutman and Brent Weaver

Brent Weaver leads the vision for UGURUS and creates educational programs that help agency owners work on their businesses to drive additional revenues, increase profits, and create freedom in their life. He built his first website at 15 and created his first web-design business at 17. That company grew into a successful, 14-person web agency that was acquired in 2012. Brent has helped thousands of other web professionals master business skills and has made more than $10mm as an entrepreneur. He published the best-selling book, Get Rich In The Deep End, in 2020.

Brent is interviewed by his good friend, fellow entrepreneur Marc Gutman.
