ELIZABETH D. FANSLOW
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.
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 5-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.
