Michael Woodward is the founder of digital web agency Woodward design group, where he and his team have helped more than 400 businesses build their online presence.
As Pastor at The Father’s House Church, he was living out his dream of helping others with personal challenges, but in 2008 the economy tumbled, which meant fewer donations to the church and lead Michael to transition himself into building his own web agency.
Aside from running a web agency, he is teaching courses on web design and the host and founder of Jumble Think podcast. Jumble Think is a consulting and idea camp for dreamers, makers, innovators, and influencers who need help achieving their dreams.
Some questions I ask:

- What services should we offer we start out our new agency?
- How did you combat your fear and self-doubt that made you take action?
- Explain how you have experienced shiny object syndrome
- Do you have a mentor, coach, network, master class that contributes to your growth or crush old beliefs?
- What are the key learnings of running a web agency, where you don’t work yourself to a burnout?
- Why start in business for yourself, what was your dream?
- How did you get started with your own web agency
