Eric Herd
I'm the best version of myself, and my clients benefit when I have intimate exposure to multiple businesses. It forces me to stay fresh and nimble. I also value autonomy and really have a perennial chip on my shoulder for challengers, I believe be an entrepreneurial spirit is part of my being in fractional work. Feels very natural to me. I've also benefited over the past several years from watching my wife build her own fractional consulting business.
