We talked about Tyler’s entrepreneurial journey and shared what Thinking Time Chief is all about.

Tyler has a solid background in entrepreneurship, his whole family is involved in a service-based business. Growing in such an environment set a foundation for Tyler to start an offline business at a young age and brought his services online over the years.

Thinking Time Chief involves finding the root cause of certain issues. It is a five-step process that Tyler walks through and been using. He does a thinking time session twice a week.

The Thinking Time sessions last for 45 minutes to an hour. Tyler runs through a series of questions and evaluations to come up with a solution to the problem with a bit of a structured approach.

And then, Tyler discusses how he came about Productizing My Service and the specifics of the process.

Tyler came across the idea of productizing services through a book. This made him realized that most agencies and service businesses do not have a clear scope and price and they also say yes to everything like business services traps.

The idea of productizing is for service businesses to have a clear scope, price, and niche. Tyler can help businesses achieve those by building systems, operations, and structure positioning.
