Fill In Your CEO Blindspots by Bringing on the Right COO or Business Partner with Jessica Terzakis: Visionary / Integrator Series 2 of 3
Show Notes

Jessica Terzakis – the ‘Integrator’ half of the dynamic mother+daughter duo that run Terzakis and Associates – jumps into the conversation today about how she was able to shed her W2 mentality as a master-educated high-school teacher and fully embrace her new COO identity in all things entrepreneurship.

Jessica details her beginnings as task-master extraordinaire to where she is now, performing as a bonafide business strategist responsible for creating new revenue opportunities and growing their brand.

If you’ve ever wondered exactly how your business could be transformed by bringing on a COO or business partner (or maybe you’re just curious as to what it’s really like to work with your mother) – then this is the episode for you! 


Quick overview of what we cover:


  • Why “You can do whatever you want with your time!” was initially too much freedom for Jessica’s W2 trained employee-brain (and how long it took her to shed that mindset)
  • The meaning behind why she started calling her mom ‘Susan’ 
  • The lightbulb moment Jessica had when her mom casually remarked, “You sure ask a lot of questions”
  • How Jessica was able to put her love of learning design to use to help explore new revenue opportunities
  • How they use the Kolbe-A assessment and the Unique Brilliance Quadrant to help mentor both their team and their business clients
  • Why learning how to present your ideas and opportunities to your COO is just as important as the idea itself to get it off the ground
  • Which kinds of mother/daughter business duos work in Jessica’s opinion (and which don’t!)
  • How long it took her to find bottlenecks in the business and create the plans that broke through them 
  • Why sustainability in business can’t come at the cost of your sanity and happiness
