Jack Butcher & the creator economy: a story about design and rapid business scaling
The quality of my guests is amazing. I am thrilled to share my conversation with Jack Butcher with you today. Jack is at the forefront of the online creator economy with his business Visualize Value, a design and consulting company based in New York. He is a graphic designer by trade, having spent a decade working in Fortune 100 advertising in NYC as a creative director for multi-billion dollar brands like Mercedes-Benz, McDonald's and Unilever. In his words, ‘fun, but the opposite of freedom.'
In search of freedom, he started his own advertising agency. No fun, and even less freedom. So Jack transitioned his traditional agency model into a product business that scales infinitely. That is Visualize Value, a business which now turns over $100K a month with 99% profit margin. Not too bad.
In this episode, we discuss,
How far the creator economy can go and its impact on traditional business models
Jack's journey from Swindon to buzzing Manhattan
His design principles
Scaling a business in 2 years
His love of racing cars
The crypto opportunity, and lots besides
