You’ve heard the terms Online Business Manager (OBM), Director of Operations (DOO), Chief of Operations (COO), Chief of Staff. No matter the title, the role is essential and it is known as a Business Integrator?
And guess what, that’s exactly who I am!
So, what is a Business Integrator? I’m glad you asked…
A Business Integrator is the glue that holds all the pieces together for the business or organization. We are the ying to the creative entrepreneur’s yang. More than just doing the work, Business Integrators drives results, provides clarity, manages the team, solves problems, prioritizes business needs, executes the plan and best of all - partners and strategies with CEOs to filter their ideas and make them a reality.
So, you know…we do all the things and make ‘ish happen!
So, why does EVERY CEO need a Business Integrator? Well, there comes a time that doing it solo or even with a small staff just doesn’t cut it. You’re either feeling stuck trying to do it all yourself, or finally managed to hire help only to now be spending your time telling them how to do their job. You've hit a ceiling that you can't break through. In order to grow and scale, especially as a visionary entrepreneur, you are going to need a leader, your #2, a strategic partner to help make all your big dreams a reality. You need to have space and time to create, doing what you love. I mean that’s why you started the business in the first place right?
