    Specializing in fractional CFO services and bookkeeping for E-commerce, Media, and Tech companies, I offer customized financial forecasting, cash flow management, and bookkeeping solutions. Along with automation tools to simplify and streamline financial processes, my goal is to empower businesses to thrive by handling their financial needs. With a background in "Big4" accounting, Fortune 100 businesses, and startups, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table. Whether you're a large corporation or a small startup, I can help you create a financial framework that works best for your business needs. My experience includes working with companies such as Warner Bros. Games and SAAS startup founders, and I'm confident in my ability to provide value to any business, regardless of size or industry. I can assist you in fundraising, forecasting, modeling, and cost savings, so you can concentrate on business development and growth while I handle all the back-office support you require. As a fractional CFO, my role is to problem-solve and provide support, much like how I support my teammates as an athlete. I've worked on board presentations and presented companies to investors, and I can help you navigate the challenges of dealing with investors and answer any difficult questions. In addition, I offer a personalized approach to working with clients and believe in the value of face-to-face meetings. You can find me zooming down a mountain at 5:30 am on my mountain bike, but I'm always available to connect on Zoom and discuss how I can help your business grow.

I serve as a Fractional Chief Marketing Officer for Fortune 500 corporations as well as a plethora of small and medium businesses. My clients have included Microsoft, NASA, Blue Origin, and other notable companies. I also serve as a Fractional Chief Marketing Officer for companies in the $1 - $25 million dollar revenue range in a wide variety of categories and industry sectors. I'm focused on sending more customers to you and getting them to buy more of your product offering faster. From marketing, messaging, brand and growth strategy, I will help you make more money. If I don't, you pay nothing. I'd love to help you grow your business. Schedule a paid 1-hour consultation with me ($499 for the hour) to build a custom step-by-step plan to increase your revenue. There is no risk to you or your business because results are guaranteed (I write in the SOW that you only pay if you're happy with the results). If after the initial consultation and deliverable, you would like additional help to further scale your business, I'm available for further hourly engagement. I serve as a Fractional Chief Marketing Officer, specializing in the following: - What you need to say to get prospects to buy - Which target segments have the highest willingness to pay - How to get prospects to buy more faster - How to cost-effectively acquire more customers - How to create an irresistible offer that gets your prospects to buy more faster - How to raise your price - I never decrease my clients' prices. Some sample projects include: - Grew a B2C business from $600,000 to $3 million dollars in annual recurring revenue in under 3 months, with no paid media, by repositioning their product (on our first consultation call) and re-architecting their website. - Grew a B2B business by $1 million dollars in under 1 month by repositioning their product and reengineering their sales funnel. - Grew a high ticket product's website conversion by 5%, increasing revenue by $500,000, just one week after rearchitecting their website, refining their messaging and honing their target audience. 2024 is the year your business grows to new heights. I will help you soar. Or your money back.

    I help CEOs of B2B SaaS companies build sales systems to grow their businesses. Unlike most Business Development experts here on UpWork, I have 12+ years experience working directly with the founders of startups in the SaaS + Digital space. My approach is straightforward, collaborative, and efficient. It’s a methodology I’ve refined through years of crafting B2B Go-To-Market strategies, Sales Teams, and Business Development funnels for nimble tech startups. Exciting results and experiences that I now use to help my clients: 1. Developed and led Sales and Marketing program for Mobile App agency in Chicago, exceeding 2 yr revenue goal by more than 200%. Rapid growth and scalable process resulted in Inc 1000 ranking as North America’s fastest growing mobile app agency five years in a row 2. Took over Business Development and rebrand of a $500k SaaS startup in 2016 and left 2 years later when it was at $6 million and sold to a global Software company. 3. Led U.S. Go-To-Market strategy for a Japanese Digital Analytics company that grew 3 fold in the 15 months I led Business Development efforts 4. Chosen to participate in Groupon’s Inside Sales Accelerator program as the only Intern while still attending Columbia College in Chicago 5. Worked with SaaS companies, Digital Marketing, UX, and other B2B digital-oriented companies 6. Successfully marketed, prospected, and secured relationships with Fortune 500 brands like Coca-Cola, North Face, Unilever, Harley-Davidson, Levi’s, Whirlpool, and many more I’ve always had a passion for building from the ground up, and I’m looking to work with like-minded folks who want to grow their business. With limited availability, I’m interested in the following types of projects: - Branding, Go-To-Market, Sales - B2B SaaS or Digital - Must have a value differentiator that is truly unique from other offerings in your space - Project that needs building or strategizing from the ground up—not interested in executing a concrete vision, there are plenty of others on UpWork who can do that : ) I provide upfront costs and manage actions on a project board of your choice, so all participants have complete visibility of the project. If you fit the criteria listed above, I’d love to discuss your project. Let me know if you have an interest in connecting. Thanks for reading. Gio

    You need more sales? You need help writing a grant? You need help scripting out your pitch, speech, email, or conversation. Request a 1 Hour Clarity Session. Get clear on your complex business problem in under an hour. Better yet, you need some quick feedback on something that you are working on but got a little stuck figuring out what to say and how to word it. You're frustrated that you can't come up with the right words. If only you could have someone talk it out with you, or look over your writing, you would have it all figured out. You know there are other solutions out there but you don't feel quite right using them. Plus, having an expert to review your words and let you know if you are on the right track or not, is way more beneficial and less time-consuming. For the past 15 years, I have helped people choose their words wisely so they get their message across in a compelling way. I've worked in television, music, technology, nonprofits, healthcare, and many other small growing businesses. Clients like small business owners, nonprofit leaders, or other senior-level professionals, come to me with an unfinished thought or idea and we get clear on what they want to accomplish and work backward to develop compelling messaging that is clear and simplifies complex information. So whether you need more sales, help writing content, or help applying for a grant, it all begins with what you choose to say. Once we have the right words, we then apply it to the format you want. Request a 1 hour Clarity Session. Anything you need to convey, that you are having a hard time getting across, we can discuss it then simplify it, so you can get on with your day. Here are a few examples of how I can help: Emails Internal Messages Operations Product Descriptions Sales Enablement - Pitch - Presentation - Sales Sheets - Sales Training Marketing Collateral - Social Media Content - Website Content - Flyers - Webinars - Promotional Video - Slogans Request a 1 Hour Clarity Session. Get clear on your complex business problem in under an hour.

Now, I'm a full-time data analyst for a Fortune 500 P&C Insurance company, and I'm looking to continue to develop my technical skills by empowering clients through data analytics. Looking forward to working with you! Feel free to message me for any additional information.

    I'm the square peg you did not know you were looking for. I view knowledge as an irregular globe, growing outward from a nexus point in different linear paths based on the subject, with more closely related subjects being oriented in similar vectors based on how closely related they are to other subjects. Over-specialization results in a mind represented by a conical shape, and leads to thinking about problems from that narrow view point. This often results in a room full of specialists approaching a problem from the same perspective and all agreeing that their solution is the obvious and correct choice. However, if you commit yourself to a journey of lifelong learning about a variety of topics (avoiding the Dunning-Kruger effect and making it past the valley of despair), your ability to approach problems from a novel direction can become a great asset. I have worked a wide variety of jobs across industries as a necessary part of living my life the way I have wanted to live it, and all of these various roles have contributed a great deal to my overall body of knowledge and equipped me with the ability to view and address problems from a perspective that most people lack. Every job I've had, I've excelled in. And I find jobs where I'm making strong, meaningful contributions while actively broadening my horizons to be the most stimulating. I've always loved learning, and am an avid life-long learner who reads multiple publications daily and 3-5 books a week. I go through phases where I will become really passionate about something, learn everything I can about it over several weeks or months - or even years - and then move on to another topic of relevance or importance. I'll come back to learn more or update my knowledge on topics I've learned previously as they become relevant or catch my interest again, but I'm constantly seeking to expand my knowledge. I spend a fair amount of time abroad and live in such a way that I don't need a lot of money. I prefer to take on interesting jobs on a temporary or part time basis and devote the rest of my time to learning. Anything I don't know, I am adept at learning very quickly.
