Episode Info:

Reinvesting your time, money, and energy in your company is essential to its growth and longevity. But just where do you decide to focus? How do you determine what’s most important right now? Today’s guests, the ReelBros, have asked themselves these very questions and the answers have been invaluable.

Brandon Main, John Hebrank, and Alex Schreer run a full-service production house that has recently shifted its focus towards providing its clients with unique camera shots that they wouldn’t find anywhere else. As they put it, they run the line between where technology meets art and where engineering meets filmmaking. They and their business may be young, but they’re already producing outstanding work for some pretty amazing clients.

This energetic episode is all about investing in yourself and business. The bros tell us all about how they came up with the idea for their company and got it off the ground in only a week. They discuss the importance of constantly reinvesting in your company to help lead it to success and what to do to stand out from the competition.

The ReelBros also drop some advice on using your passions to get out of creative ruts and show the world your talent. They discuss how their enthusiasm and obvious love of their craft gets their clients as excited for their work as they are. Many of these clients come to them through their presence on social media, and the ReelBros share how this is an effective tool for them.

Quotes:

“From the very beginning, we were extremely focused on what we wanted ReeBros to be. It was a representation of who we are as people. We want people to know that every day we’re on a shoot, we’re absolutely having the best time of our lives.” [19:08]

“We see the value in investing back into the company whether that’s education, money, time. Those are all super important to your success.” [24:39]

“Do things that are going to scare you. Get out of your element.” [31:52]

“Putting that effort into showing a client what you can do -- that’s our biggest thing. It’s almost like a pony show nowadays. You have to really show these people that you are really invested in what you do. If you’re invested, then they will be invested in you.” [34:49]

“If you’re going to start a business or a partnership, be absolutely 100% sure that you’re doing it with the right people and for the right reasons. If not, that will manifest itself very quickly. And if it is meant to be and you work well together, nothing is impossible.” [44:15]
