Episode 10: Building an Agency in Retirement with Bruce Mayo

RM YT Thumbnail Ep10

Someone said, “it’s never too late to find new passions in life.” Tom’s guest can attest to the truth behind that statement.

Bruce Mayo is a retired Air Traffic Controller at the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the founder of Marketing Pro Lab, an Indiana-based, minority-owned agency known for ruthlessly increasing customers and sales through search engine optimization (SEO), paid advertising, custom websites, reputation marketing, and other effective marketing strategies. 

He started his agency a little later in life than most people. In this episode, Tom and Bruce talk about the challenges of building an online marketing agency, the first services Bruce offered, and why and what he thinks is an essential trait of anyone looking to start an online marketing agency. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode.


“The biggest thing is, be a self-starter. You just have to discipline yourself and do it.

– Bruce Mayo
