Business coaching for progressive online business owners who are ready to
Some days, it feels like your business has taken on a life of its own.
Things are clicking. They’re happening. Momentum is building, sales are rolling in, and you’ve got clients that love you.
After all the sweat, blood and tears, you’ve finally got A Business That Works.
Then there are the other days.
The days when it’s clear that all this growth has left you with a Business That’s Broken.
The days when the ‘ping’ of a new Slack notification is enough to send you into a panic. When you can’t help but want to hide from your team, afraid of what they’re going to ask next. When you just get one thing working, only to discover at least ten more that aren’t.
On those days, even getting an inquiry from a new prospect feels less like a cause for celebration, and more like a punch to the gut because you just can’t handle anything more.
Most of all, you’re just so tired. Tired of managing people, tired of talking about the same things all the time, tired of your product … possibly even tired of your business as a whole.
Here’s the truth: as long as your business is growing, things will keep breaking.
The market will change, technology will evolve, and you’ll keep coming up with new ideas for how to make things better. (After all, it’s not like you’re the type to just sit around and never create anything new.)
That’s why the question isn’t “how do I make my business unbreakable?”
It’s “how can I structure my business so that when things break, I don’t have to be the one putting it all back together again?”
That’s the problem we help our clients to solve.
Our Signature Process
Right now, the last thing you need is another group program, cookie-cutter course, or so-called “mastermind” where you’re the most experienced person in the room.
(You also don’t need to do yet another ideal client avatar worksheet, or to waste time with advisors who think the solution is to automate everything and hire cheap overseas labor for the rest. #EquityMatters)
What you really need, right now, is someone to help you pull your business apart and put it back together again. Someone to look at your business from the outside and help you see the things you’re missing – not just on a tactical level, but on a deep, enduring, strategic one. Someone to help you get from where you are, to where you could be. Even if you’re not quite sure where that is yet.
That’s where we come in.
We provide done-with-you and done-for-you solutions to help busy entrepreneurs like you to scale up your services, unbottleneck your business, and build a world-class team & culture.
What You Can Expect
When you work with the Visionary CEO Academy, we use our proven frameworks and proprietary tools to curate and customize a unique pathway for you and your company.
Then, we walk you through the implementation process, personally … no cookie-cutter formulas, mass-market sleaze, or other Internet Marketer hack-tics required.
Here’s how it works:
Our enrollment process begins with a complementary scalability audit & game plan session. During this 30-minute call, we:
- Evaluate your existing business model, systems and team to determine what's possible
- Audit your core process, your operations, your leadership & culture, to find the #1 thing that’s interfering with your scalability
- Map out an action plan that will help you add $30k-$50k per month, sustainably, profitably and equitably
At the end of the call, if you love the plan and you want our help to implement it, we can get you enrolled right away.Book A Game Plan SessionWhen You Apply
We begin by doing a deep dive into your current business, team & operations, so we know exactly what’s going on at a deep level.
From there, we'll create a prioritized, action-oriented roadmap for reducing the amount of time you spend in the day-to-day management of your people, projects and priorities...
... and then make sure it happens, by stepping in as the interim Operational Leader for your team.Get Organized
Along the way, we'll install easy-to-use tracking systems that help you (and your team) not only measure progress, but also to stay focused on the right things on a daily and weekly basis.
Plus, our team will use this data to proactively provide you with strategic insights, identifying potential obstacles and opportunities so you can succeed, faster.KPIs and Metrics
Once you're out of the weeds, we need to make sure you don't get dragged back down there.
We do that by optimizing your business’ Core Process — the operating system that keeps leads flowing, deals closing, and clients coming back for more.
This not only simplifies and streamlines your daily operations, so things are more profitable, sustainable and scalable ...
... it also prepares us to help you find, hire and onboard a COO who will run it all for you.Get Optimized
Finally, we’ll help you hire the perfect-fit to become a permanent Operational Leader for your team, taking over the day-to-day running of your business.
We’ll train them on your business (including the systems and processes we’ve created along the way), walking them through everything they need to succeed...
... while also supporting you as step into your Visionary shoes, freeing yourself from old ways of being, and in doing so, building a sustainable, scalable legacy.Promote Yourself
Meet Our Clients
Our clients are fast-growing entrepreneurs in the online marketing space, providing a mix of online courses, memberships, group programs, and/or done-for-you services.
They come to us with an established offer that they already know how to sell & market; that gets great results; and that they’re ready to scale up.
Together, we help them break through their profit plateau, increase capacity so they can serve more clients with even better results, and build a team that will truly free them from the day-to-day.
Most importantly, though, our clients aren’t interested in building “traditional” businesses that work according to systems of patriarchy, racism, sexism, ableism, etc.
So if you agree that Black Lives Matter, love is love, women’s rights are human rights, ability takes many forms, equity (not just diversity and inclusion) is mandatory, and that running a vision & values-led business is the only type of business you want to run … then you’ll fit right in.

The VCA's Commitment to Equity
The Visionary CEO Academy is proudly 100% LGBTQ2S+ and 50% Indigenous (Métis) owned.
At the same time, we also recognize the privileges that have been afforded to us. The systems of racism, sexism, cis-genderism, ableism, etc. run deep, and so we are committed to putting our words into action.
That’s why all programs offered by the Visionary CEO Academy are based on an explicitly intersectional, anti-racist worldview. We:
- Hold firm our responsibility to create and maintain safe space for marginalized groups, including those who are systematically disadvantaged whether because of race, sexuality, gender, ability, or other forms of diversity.
- Affirm the importance of science-based decision-making, meaning we acknowledge the reality of climate change, support mask mandates, and are pro-vaxx.
- Acknowledge that we are headquartered on unceded Coast Salish territory.
- Believe that Black, Indigenous and Trans Lives Matter.
Finally, as a sign of our ongoing commitment toward reconciliation, 1% of all revenue collected by the Visionary CEO Academy goes to #PayTheRent in support of the Tillicum Lelum Friendship Center’s programs.
