Companies who outsource

benefit from a clear path

Allowing you and your team to do more of your most important work with less strain and stress.

CEOs of growing businesses often find themselves pulled in too many directions and no one to hand things off to... until now.

What might your days look like by adding the following experience and guidance to your business?

the coo value



Almost any task can be outsourced, especially ones taking up your time or beyond your skillset. Delegate non-essential tasks to keep your vision momentum in the places it matters most.



Sometimes a CEO will prefer a partner for co-leadership to create balance and complement their skills, style, and expertise. An Outsourced COO is an objective approach to this need and avoids potential interest conflict.

Even with a day-to-day operations focus, your COO can lead specific initiatives for larger organizational shifts through aligned strategies, critical thinking, delegation and effective communication. 

A typical COO role can oversee logistics, performance, and processes on a daily basis to best integrate the "how" details into your operations based on the CEO's big picture (aka the "what") goals.

operations outsourcing questions

What's the best way to decide how many hours we'll need for our Outsourced COO role?

What's the best way to decide how many hours we'll need for our Outsourced COO role?

There are two ways to handle this. The first is to start with a conservative hours estimation, knowing you can add on additional time needed at your retainer hourly rate. Or, choose a more comfortable range with the benefit of rolling over 5% of unused hours to the following quarter and either way making any retainer adjustments once you have a better idea of your ideal hours quota.

Is in-person support an option for our company & teams?

Is in-person support an option for our company & teams?

Absolutely and with pleasure! My home office is located in Loveland, OH (just north of Cincinnati). If you're local and would find it beneficial for me to join you in-person at any time, an additional 1 hour of your retainer bank will be considered fulfilled each occasion I'm personally in office. For remote companies, we keep travel as simple as possible using a standard state-side travel fee for airfare, accommodations, & per diem.

How do we extend or cancel our retainer?

How do we extend or cancel our retainer?

All clients of The Outsourced COO will have access to a private communication portal that houses important service documents including a standard cancel request form that you can submit anytime under the guidelines of your specific retainer package requiring 30, 45, or 60 days notice for cancelation.

We're still developing the role of our COO, can we reach out now?

We're still developing the role of our COO, can we reach out now?

Yes! If you're considering the benefits of a COO and have the beginnings of a tasks list or backlog needing assistance we can review those details together rather than this being one more thing staring back at you from an always growing to-do list. I'm more than happy to help identify what items are within my scope of practice to get you started in the process of outsourcing your operations.

What is the no-risk guarantee?

What is the no-risk guarantee?

The no-risk guarantee means that once we've agreed The Outsourced COO is the right fit for your company, services will be active for two weeks before your contract and quarterly agreement go into effect. At the end of those two weeks, if for any reason, you decide not to move forward with The Outsourced COO you'll pay only for the hours received without any cancelation penalty. A standard $500 activation payment is required of all new clients, and will be applied toward your first invoice at the conclusion of those two weeks.

What happens with unused hours at the end of a retainer period?

What happens with unused hours at the end of a retainer period?

Unused hours, up to 5% of your retainer, will automatically roll over for one additional quarter, before those hours are forfeited. For Lite plan users, this is 3 hours per quarter. For Classic plan users, this is 5 hours per quarter. For Premium plan users, up to 10 hours may be rolled over, automatically, per quarter. Reduction requests to your retainer may be made anytime at least 14 days prior to quarter end, to be in effect the following quarter. All requests can be easily managed within your private client communication portal.
