Episode Notes

With more people opting to work remotely, particularly in light of the current health issues surrounding Coronavirus, today’s guest couldn’t be better timed. 

Robert Glazer is the founder and CEO of Acceleration Partners, a partner marketing agency that helps brands with a form of marketing also known as affiliate marketing. 

What sets his marketing agency apart from the competition? He built his business to be remote from day one - all 175 members of his team are based around city hubs, but all work entirely remotely.

Which has led him down many interesting different avenues, not least writing a book, starting a podcast and authoring a truly fantastic and #1 newsletter on LinkedIn. 

“I am obsessed with people sort of living up to their ability both inside and outside of work that's become a universal thing. For me, I think one of the biggest shame is not living up to your own potential or capacity.”

This is a really wide ranging conversation, covering how to work remotely (including the cultural implications), the genesis of Acceleration Partners, how (and why) he started his newsletter and what has driven his personal high performance as a business leader and entrepreneur.
