TIPS FROM A FRACTIONAL COO: Innovation to Enhance Executive Performance

558: Working ON or IN your business w/ April Eldridge 7th April 2023 • Wantrepreneur to Entrepreneur | Start and Grow Your Own Business • Brian Lofrumento There are a lot of things we COULD focus on when it comes to growing our business, but in today’s episode, you’re going to hear from an incredible business mind with a lot of experience in both big and small business growth. April Eldridge leverages her wide range of experience across industries and larger companies to now serve as a fractional COO for businesses looking to accelerate their growth by focusing on the RIGHT things instead of getting stuck working inside of their businesses rather than ON their businesses. --- April Eldridge offers Fractional COO & Chief of Staff services to small business owners, business leaders, and entrepreneurs. Her services can be custom-tailored to specific needs, and she prides herself on providing 1:1 support for clients. April leverages all of her experience after working in corporate America for nearly 20 years, having seen and done everything in the corporate world. During that journey, April found climbing the formidable ladder to be challenging and unstable, especially after being subjected to five layoffs over the past seven years. That was the push she needed to start offering her specific expertise to the masses on her own, realizing that SMBs and entrepreneurs need support but may only be able to afford to hire a part-time team, meaning they could contract with someone with experience on a fractional basis.
