About Lee Goff, Inc – Your Marketing Agency Coach:
Who Is Lee Goff?
I Am An Entrepreneur Who Grew Up In The Deep South, Raised In Pascagoula, Mississippi By People Who Taught Me To Work Hard And Do What Is Right. I Started My First Agency, GETUWired, In 2003 In My Upstairs Bedroom With Absolutely Nothing. After Growing GETUWired Into A Multi-Million Dollar Agency, Winning 2012 Technology Partner Of The Year, 2013 Infusionsoft Innovator Of The Year, Top Company Culture – Entrepreneur Magazine In 2015, And Infusionsoft Elite Business Of The Year Finalist In 2015, And Many More Accomplishments, I Decided To Step Out And Retire. I Took The Advice Of Jim Collins And The Infusionsoft Leadership And Began Handing Off Leadership Responsibilities, Eventually Leading To My Retirement From The Agency In Early 2014. Then In June Of 2016 I Sold Out The Remaining Shares To My Long Time Partners To Pursue My Passion Of Mentoring Small Businesses. Leading, Guiding, Mentoring And Encouraging Other Entrepreneurs Down A Slightly Easier Road Than I Had, Is My True Mission!
I Successfully Start And Sold A Multi-Million Dollar Company, But At What Cost? Through The Stress Of Starting And Running This Agency, I Suffered A Massive Heart Attack At The Age Of 43. Not Cool — And Preventable! Since Exiting In 2016, I Have Focused All Of My Energy On Creating And Implementing Guaranteed Ways To Make Starting, Scaling, Running And Potentially Selling A Successful Agency Easier And Dramatically Faster … OH, And More Enjoyable… While Still Being Very Profitable.
By Combining Timeless Old School Philosophies With Automation And The Cloud, My Team And I Have Created The Perfect Combination That Allowed Me To Work Smarter By Actually Working Less – Giving Me The Time To Take Care Of Myself And My Family – Therefore, Allowing Me The Quality Of Life I And Every Entrepreneur Needs And Deserves! I Truly Believe It Takes A Village To Have True Quality Of Life While Building A Successful Agency/Businesses. It Takes The Right Team And With My Tools And Resources You Can Build That Team Without Losing Your Marriage And Almost Your Life (As I Learned The Hard Way).

You get started with your niche, your products, prospect engagement, and it walks you through the 12 different systems and steps you will need to be successful. I wrote it with the intent to not be super dominant and super overwhelming, easy as one two three kind of steps to get you going. It has it’s been unbelievably well received.
When someone is looking to engage or hire a marketing coach what are some of the things that they should know when looking for someone to help their business?
At the top of the list is to make sure that they have done what you want to achieve. Do your homework and make sure you see a proven success record over time that has done what you want to do. Then look into their personality. I have a very aggressive personality, I don’t like losing. I don’t like it at all. However some people don’t want to be as aggressive. Find someone that’s that’s that’s a little more conducive to your personality type, that actually has a lot a lot to do with it. Number three, I would put up there right at the top of the list, tools and accountabilities.
