  • Ugly Mug Marketing, stems from the belief that the results should never be compromised – not even for the sake of “good” design. They would rather an “ugly” design that delivers results, than a “beautiful” design that doesn’t. The day they begin focusing on winning awards, instead of delivering results for clients, is the day their business has lost its way.
  • One of the most impactful things Wayne has done in business is get the right people in place. This is so vital for small businesses because your limited staff needs to have a big impact.
  • As a father of 4, being there to see his kids grow up is very important to him. Clients and business opportunities will come and go, so Wayne has had to learn to say no to good people and good opportunities sometimes.
  • Wayne believes that some external motivation only lasts for a moment, he tries to focus on the things within that motivate him, because those things will be constant and stay with him forever.
  • To Wayne success is when he and his team get better and better every day, it’s not set in profits or milestones. He wants people to get better every day and be held accountable to one another.




‘If you want to know how I scaled my businesses so quickly, the answer is creative marketing’

‘I’d rather have an ad that’s ugly and effective, over one that’s beautiful but isn’t’

‘When we look for external motivations, we will always need that crutch’
