Fractional COO Putting people into business

Helping people Go Fractional (get it?) to provide exponential talent in companies for a fraction of the price.

I am currently working on Go Fractional, helping people become their best fractional consultant. I also work as a Fractional COO myself, mainly for Funds, Fund of Funds, and other special situations. I also work as an executive coach and early stage investor.
