Say NO to "Advisors"

We're not fans of paying $ for consultants who simply provide presentations, meet once a week, or assign worksheets.

As a Fractional COO, we're 100% hands-on and vested in your success. We become an integral part of your team.

What is a Fractional Chief Operating Officer?

A Fractional Chief Operating Officer is a part-time contractor that works 1-4 hours a day - no benefits or long-term contracts. They will bring their depth of experience and efficiency to helping you solve your most pressing business issues.

Fractional COOs are ideal for businesses in the $1M - $10M revenue range that are ready to scale to the next level, but may not have funds, in-house expertise, or hiring time to bring on a full-time world-class COO.

You will see the impact of an experienced fractional COO in less than a week of working with them.
