sick of being the bottleneck of your business?

stuck working in the business, not on the business?

started your business in pursuit of freedom, but feeling stuck?

If you’re spinning wheels with the same old problems & you know you’re leaving results on the table, we should talk.

Are you tired of constantly putting out fires? Terrified you’ll always have to be the one to fix things and you’ll never grow?

Good team members leaving?

Mediocre ones sticking around? Can you ever grow like this, nevermind sell?

You’re the bottleneck of your business and your life is held hostage by its demands.

You have big plans, a big vision and in the next 5-10 years you want to sell. There’s more you want to do with your life than run this business.

You’re feeling stuck – you know you’re not the best person to run your business, but you can’t see a way out of that right now. 

 You’re not ready to build out a full leadership team – it’s a big expense and feels like a serious risk – but you also can’t carry on as you are currently. 

The great news is that we have the solution.

We provide Fractional (part-time) COOs, Integrators and Operations  Managers to founders who are scaling and need an interim solution to get them out of the weeds before they make a permanent hire.

And we bet it’s a lot easier and faster than you think it is. 

Your first step is to talk to us, share with us what you need and where you’re stuck and let us figure it out.

“The impact is seeing something happening that would have taken us a year, perhaps two, to achieve by ourselves (at the four month point). It’s very different with your support. Looking forward to achieving even more and better results together.” 

Elena, CFO
Amy Bingham of Black & Blue

if you want to truly live, it can’t all be on you.

You can’t grow without the right team, systems, data and processes. Well you can try, but it’s unlikely to be fun!

Bringing in fractional leadership is the next smart move to enable you to grow and step out of the weeds. 

The truth is, without the right Operations Director, you can’t have:
  • Freedom – of time and what you do with it, and how much you have in the bank
  • Headspace and the capacity to learn and grow and do more
  • Your business leveraged as an asset over which you have choice and control
A great Operations Director will help you with:
  • Getting the right team in place
  • Equipping them to win
  • Systems that can leveraged to scale 
  • Processes that make your business safe
  • Strategy that works and can be scaled without you
  • Leadership that you can wholeheartedly trust
This is what we can help you create, quickly and easily. 

you can’t continue to DO IT ALL

You thought that once you grew your business, things would be easier. But they’re not and now it’s do or die in terms of your wellbeing, personal life and frustration levels. 

The powerful way you desire to run your business is being disrupted by:

  • Your team dropping balls despite their training
  • Endless meetings that aren’t productive
  • Regular people issues
  • Your time being pulled into day-to-day challenges
  • Lack of systems and processes 
  • Feeling like it’s ultimately all on you

We’re here to enable you to create the freedom you crave by building our your operations to handle the growth that is coming.

Who this is for… and who this isn’t for

Black & Blue is for business owners who:

  • Are committed to building a saleable asset. We work best with businesses currently turning over £700k to £50m.

  • Desire to grow aggressively. You don’t want to stay here, or in the next stage. You want to go big. You’re hungry.

  • Have a team. You’re fed up of fixing small mistakes or gi

 Black & Blue is NOT for business owners who:

  • Want to keep things ‘ticking over’ with no desire for growth.

  • Are stuck on things being the same way that they’ve always been. You’re not open to being challenged or to change.

  • Regularly make excuses for not getting something done or like to challenge every aspect of a process.

If this sounds like you, we want to help. Book your call to find out more below.

‘We’d almost missed our boat on all things accountability. When you’re being driven by the founder’s energy, it reaches a certain point and it dies – it can’t be ‘a business’. If I was to be in hospital for 6 months, I would come back and there’s no business.

When you’re doing this kind of work, not everyone can stay. People have left, because of what you’ve done. There are now people who are thriving because of what you’ve done.

We now have a common language. There is nothing more powerful than this.

You have made massive impact.’
