We began the show with a discussion on Juliann’s business, Focus on You Strategy, LLC. With two locations in the Tampa Bay area, her practice focuses on business coaching that brings out the CEO in you. She is not just a one woman shop either; with multiple strategists, the demand for her brand is growing. We discussed one of her primary marketing tools, the CEO Exchanges which are held at C1 Banks in the Tampa Bay area and are a small intimate group of business leaders who discuss business challenges amongst each other. She challenges her group as after each pitches their problems, they must receive feedback from the group while remaining quiet, a challenge for most business leaders. We also discussed her Facebook Group Focus Fridays and be sure to like her Business Page located here

In the next segment, we welcomed in Noelle Fox, a client of the Focus on You Strategy and a solopreneur turned CEO with a team via Juliann’s strategies. She shared with us the top 3 lessons she learned during this transition and how the strategies and techniques learned while working with Juliann over the last 18 months has increased her bottom line tremendously. Her company, based in Clearwater, focused on PR and marketing for the savvy business owners and be sure to check out for more on her company.

WE closed out with a deeper discussion on what it is to be in the CEO Mindset and how many business leaders do not know the answer to a simple questions – Where do you want to end up? This along with many not knowing their value are two key areas Juliann focuses on when working with clients. We closed out the hour with a brief discussion on Juliann’s past business ventures including her time as a private detective in which she shares a funny story with us and her time spent designing handbags.
