In 1999, Josh founded his marketing agency, MWI. Fourteen years later, a strategic error placed him on the edge of bankruptcy with only three clients left. In this desperate moment, Josh received an invitation to write a column for Forbes. Over the next few years, Josh wrote more than 300 articles for over two dozen publications including TIME, Inc., Entrepreneur, Fast Company, Mashable, and TechCrunch, leading to over $10M in revenue for his agency. Josh’s writing also led to a TEDx talk and speaking engagements around the world, interviews on national and international TV and radio, appearances on hundreds of podcasts, and ranking as a bestselling author in USA Today and the Wall Street Journal.
Josh’s experiences with thought leadership and personal branding led him to create The 7 Systems of Influence, a framework to help leaders know what content they should create to get the best clients as quickly as possible with the lowest investments of time and money.
