#287 – Felix Velarde – Scale at Speed

The Next 100 Days Podcast

Scale at Speed with Felix VelardeThe 2Y3X formula is really the core Scale at Speed proposition. In 2 years 3 times. It's all about getting the right people to deliver massive growth in a shortish period of time. Felix has had a long entrepreneurial career and has started, built and sold agencies. He claims to have messed up several times. But, that's where you learn a lot. When you cock things up. Building businesses is trial and error. Felix wanted to do what Steve Jobs said "Make a little dent on the world". Hi company 2Y3X, became a growth acceleration programme. Part of the formula was to extract the trial and error he'd experienced starting businesses. He brought together what he'd learnt and added loads more and implemented. His clients started to get the results that means he can reliably offer the possibility of businesses tripling in 2 years.

She was religious. At 7, Felix was whinging about going to church on Christmas Day. She bribed him with a small amount. It was a seminal moment and Felix really questioned his relationship with religion. She in effect shaped his future. We forget about these moments.A Lesson Learnt in the HimalayasHis guides on a Himalayan trek, used hour long stages to keep Felix going. They got him to walk 6,500 stairs in a day. There was a big goal and a series of small growth steps. The big goal has to be far enough away to be challenging, then break it into smaller achievable steps. This became part of embedded goal setting within his growth acceleration.Felix breaks down growth by having a BIG 3 year goal, split into 3 parts:It's broken into quarterly tasks.- Financial- Cultural (what kind of place do you ant it to be)- Positioning (where do we want to be in our market).WORK BACKWARDS FROM THE GOAL.Come up with 20 tasks for this coming year. 5 people on the board. 1 task per board member per month.

EP55: How to scale at speed | Felix Velarde | 2Y3X

Small Spark Theory: a marginal gains approach to new business and marketing

In 2017 I interviewed Felix Velarde for this podcast to discuss agency growth planning. It was our 4th episode. Lots of people got in touch to talk about that episode and the way Felix delivered such a calm, pragmatic approach to a subject that frustrates so many agency owners. How do you grow, and just as importantly, how do you sustain that growth? Later that year, Felix mentioned over lunch that he’d been approached by an agent who had heard the podcast, and suggested he write a book about the process. Fast forward to 2021 and I’m delighted that Felix is back to discuss that very book: Scale at Speed: How to Triple the Size of Your Business and Build a Superstar Team. This book is such an invigorating read, whether or not you are in a position to take on the full 2Y3X programme that Felix and his team deliver, it is full to the brim of practical tools and advice to motivate anyone to switch up their growth plans. We always do a book giveaway with each episode but Felix has kindly agreed to donate 10 signed copies to listeners. Simply listen in to find out how to win.
