Operations Specialist

aBout John

  • Have you ever felt unorganized when running your business or startup?
  • Are you someone that knows your product inside and out but somehow can’t get a handle on
    the weekly business tasks? 
  • Do you avoid bookkeeping like the plague?

If you’ve answered yes, know that you’re not alone. Too many businesses often fall prey to hard times because they’re not organized. They have an amazing product or service but avoid spending time on bookkeeping, creating a positive culture, marketing, or finding the best ways to be efficient. It isn’t because they are unable to do these tasks; they just want to focus on the core of their business - the product. 

My name is John, and I am a creative operations specialist that helps startups and small businesses organize the operations side of their companies.

I’ve spent over 7 years working with startups, organizations, and family owned businesses establish routines that tackle some of their most pressing issues. From sales to general bookkeeping, I eliminate your stress by providing clear and understandable steps you can immediately take now. I also work with you and am a hands-on specialist.  

You are only steps away from developing systems that run like clockwork, being able speak confidently about the direction of your business, and giving yourself a less stressful life.

When a company is looking to reach the next level of success, the formula for that success often comes with 10 different ideas, 100 pieces to manage, and a vision that needs stabilized. I assist companies and organizations when they’re in their most
