by proving that, with the right approach, their systems and automations can work like a bonus brain as brilliant as they are. Because small businesses on the brink of BIG can’t afford to slow down, they need custom-fit tech specifically tailored to their teams, working tempo, and the way they think.
ClickUp is our go-to project management platform!

Courtney grew up in a small town in Missouri and attended the University of Missouri. After graduating college, she moved to St. Louis and started working for a company that really didn’t align with her moral standards. After four months, she quit that job and in 2016, she moved to Hawaii! As much as she loved living there, it was difficult to be so far from family. Her 9 to 5 had very little vacation time which made traveling a challenge.
From there, she found a tech startup company based out of San Francisco where she landed her very first remote job with a corporation! It was there she got to experience the ins and outs and the workings of a large business that was 100% remote.
Eventually, she moved back to Missouri where she ended up having to leave her remote job and start another 9 to 5. About six months into that job, she felt incredibly unfulfilled and drained.
Eventually, this led her to become an OBM (Online Business Manager).
When she started out as an OBM, she was still working her corporate 9 to 5 and made a promise to herself to either quit her 9 to 5 when she matched her corporate salary or for sure quit no matter what by January 1st and just take that leap!
By December, she was able to walk out of her 9 to 5 and start working for herself. She went full-time in her business by December of 2017!
And the rest is history!
Chief Operating Officer
Founder & CEO
The supportive, streamlining, systems savants you need, like, yesterday.
Since then, she has devoted her time to expanding team SystemsUp® and helping business owners uplevel their systems.
Well, ask around and it’s easy to see: so many business owners are creatives who prefer to DO instead of worry about what the DOING entails.
So they grow scattered teams, have a range of half-finished systems full of holes, and rely on their brains and memories to do most of the heavy lifting – effectively making CEO’s the bottleneck.
Why is that?
it feels wildly intimidating now to even consider rethinking how the thing is designed.
While SOME of our clients will come to get their systems done first, most don’t, because they’ve been so busy building the plane as they’ve flown it,
Add to that the fact their businesses, teams, and way of thinking are all wildly unique – and they realize they also don’t WANT someone else’s system anyway. In a perfect world, they’d have PM software and tools that flowed exactly the way their mind does. Preferably installed in a way that doesn’t require them to slow down.
No paint-by-numbers tech solutions here.
We build bespoke backend brains as brilliant as our clients.
while you take a break, take some time off, or dive headfirst into work you love doing most.
We have wildly deep knowledge of tech tools and the industry, how these businesses are run, and all the little quirks and schisms that makes the online business space, and the creatives in it, so magical.
That’s why, with our propriety process, we’re striving to teach our students and clients that technology isn’t just about making life easier for yourself, your team, and your clients.
We want to show what good tech can DO.
But our real mission?
In general: we’d love to see more awareness of the absolute necessity of systems in your biz.
Take the initiative, don’t be afraid to rest or share crazy ideas, fail often & fast, be open with your mistakes & failures.
Being efficient in your day-to-day helps you improve your productivity, increases your production output & can eliminate time-consuming tasks.
Support your team members. Lend a hand when you see someone struggling.
Self-explanatory. Be kind, do it willingly.
We own up to things when we mess up and we are honest about our strengths and weaknesses.
The best customer experience, period. Fix problems and say yes.
We always encourage transparency within our team and with our clients. It encourages trust and goodwill together as a team and for our clients that work with us.
We always believe in going above and beyond. Always take projects one step further than you're required to with internal + clients.
