In 2012, Jamie Russo opened Enerspace, a coworking space designed to help entrepreneurs and mobile professionals achieve well being at work. Knowing she wanted to open more locations, Jamie needed an outside perspective on her business.

Over the past 18 months, we have worked with Jamie to analyze her business, identify opportunities, and implement solutions to create a scalable business model.

Impact

“It’s very hard to have a business partner but it’s also very hard to run a business by yourself because you never have another perspective or someone to fill in the gaps of your skill set. Having an external perspective and having someone who is objective is extremely valuable. My consultant has been a very good strategic partner for me. Since not a family member or a mentor, I’m not trying to impress; I’m just trying to make my business better.”

Skills

Opportunity 

In May 2016, Jamie sold Enerspace. She is now the Executive Director of Global Workspace Association in which she is responsible for the Association’s sponsorship and membership. She now works with her consultant on new business challenges including strategy and problem solving.

“I would recommend a business coach to anyone. The world moves so quickly and it’s so hard to learn everything by yourself; you need extra help. If you’re a business owner, you need to leverage another brain and another perspective and I think that having a coach is a great way to do it. Cultivate is very results-oriented, which I really appreciate and see the return on investment for my business.”
