Today on ScaleUp Radio, we're diving deep into the fascinating world of marketing and business relationships with Ben Kinnaird, the founder of Rather Inventive. What started in 2009 as a web development company has evolved into a hub for innovative marketing strategies.
Ben isn't just your run-of-the-mill marketing expert; he is a thought leader in the field. His emphasis is on building sustainable businesses, not merely chasing profits.

His ideas on cash flow management, time allocation, and productivity are something every business person, regardless of industry, needs to hear. He's also shared valuable insights into operating a lean yet efficient business, all while maintaining an impeccable standard of work-life balance.
So sit back, relax, and prepare to take a lot of notes. Today's episode promises to be a compelling deep-dive into the intricacies of marketing, business relationships, and much more.
