Chief Operating Officer of Your Business
If there’s one thing corporate taught me, it’s that maintaining flow and ease in a business comes from creating systems that work for you, not against you.
Running a profitable, successful business requires a convergence of creativity and organization. Most people usually lead with their right brain (creativity) or their left brain (organization)…but few people can lead with both. That’s where my genius comes in. My super powers meet in the middle of both worlds. I’m an organizational nerd and a closet creative…
What this means for you is, I’m able to see and understand your creative vision and how to make it work in the real world.
“Ideas without implementation remain just that…ideas.”
I offer Chief Operating Officer consulting services to help you:
- Ensure Human Resource systems and processes are in place to protect your business and support your staff;
- Ensure your Design systems such as branding, messaging, and your website are managed and kept up to date and on point;
- Create and support your marketing and social media strategy, content development, Facebook marketing and lead generation;
- Developing Customer Service systems that support your customers and clients, customer management, and development of your customer sales funnel;
- Managing your technology maintenance and growth, as well as technology updates and upgrades;
- Supporting your entire day-to-day Operations management, project management, development of new systems for new products, services, and programs.
I can see solutions hiding inside problems. I learned as a young adult that business strategy and operational processes were where I shined.
All my life, I’ve been a fixer. If I look back through my childhood I can see a pattern of finding creative solutions to problems. Anytime there was a problem to be solved, I stubbornly found a way around it, through it, or I’d dig out a new route underneath it. I didn’t like being told that something wasn’t possible.
I could always make things happen…
Fortunately, my brain is wired that way. My innate ability to see a problem from a big-picture perspective carried over into my corporate life where my colleagues also turned to me to make things happen.
Whether I was reworking a broken process or setting up a strategic plan to bring in more revenue, I became known as the go-to problem solver on the team. Managing projects, creating systems, and taking great ideas from concepts to reality are truly my zone of genius.
I flourished in corporate until 2011, when I retired after a successful 25-year career. I was proud of my success, but the truth is, I was ready to shake things up. I hung out my shingle and started offering Chief Operating Officer consulting services. I started working with creative, solution-focused clients, helping them scale their businesses. I knew intuitively that what they were missing was a partner to oversee their operations, someone who could move their business away from the start-up phase into full fledge growth mode.
Using my own proprietary 6-Core Business System, I discovered that I could help them stop spinning in circles and unpack all their ideas into real actionable plans.
Creative entrepreneurs can often generate endless ideas, but when it comes time to put pen to paper and transform their brilliant ideas into reality, they become stymied.
My role as your Chief Operating Officer is to step in and become the executive counterpart you need. I help you solve problems, create new services and optimize current ones, and set up systems that make your job easier. I don’t work from the sidelines as a coach; rather, I’m in the trenches making things happen.
My role is to take actionable items off your plate so you can focus your energy on doing what you do best.
My husband and I live in Tampa, most of the time. We travel and work from multiple locations and love trying new foods and experimenting with new wines. I am an International Chief Operating Officer Consultant and work with clients all over the world.
We are also the proud parents of four grown children and love spoiling our nine grandchildren. (The tenth is on the way!)
