  • Fit your budget. I provide massive value to your business when you don't have the budget for a FTE for the same role.
  • Flexible terms. Compared to an FTE role, we can alter or end our engagement and say farewell whenever we want.
  • No administrative costs. No paid vacations, insurance costs or benefits to pay. Simplified management.
  • Instant impact. No unnecessary hiring and onboarding rituals. I'm prepared to bring results tomorrow.
  • Niche specialization. I compiled all my expertise into a highly actionable OS to solve your most pressing issues.
  • Outcome-driven. Achieving your goals is measured by outcomes through a clear roadmap. Nothing is left to chance.

Structured collaborative process.

We work methodically and proactively together to ensure transparency and accountability.

Asynchronous Communication

I answer quickly, within 24 hours, for any need, idea, question, or concern. I won't let you down. I'm a message away from providing help.

Roadmap

We work together on a roadmap to plan your transformation and visualize how we progress to ensure we stay on target.

Goals

We list clear, quantifiable goals and measure our progress in achieving them. The roadmap is the plan for achieving these objectives.

All audio and video conversations are recorded and can be consulted anytime to remind yourself of our conversations.

Meeting Notes Fractional

All meetings between us are noted in detail with action items at the end so you can reread them at all times and know what's next.
