Mike Arnesen is the owner and CEO of Upbuild, a 100% remote consulting agency that specializes in end-to-end optimization. Mike joined us on the podcast from his home office in Portland, OR and we wanted to talk with him about his unique way of running an agency.

Upbuild is not your average consulting agency. They have a small team and each team member is only in charge of four clients…that’s it. They also vote on whether they should work with a new client, and if it is not unanimous, then they don’t work with them. And did I mention they are all remote?

Mike is also very passionate about culture and has great thoughts on building company culture. He even wrote a great blog for one of their clients about how he built his culture-first company.
