The Next Evolution of The Founder & The Force Multiplier

Late last week, I became the proud owner of The Founder & The Force Multiplier. 

It feels incredibly appropriate, poetic even, to be making this announcement during Administrative Professionals Week. I’ve been an assistant and force multiplier since my first job fresh out of college as a non-profit public relations assistant until my recent departure from my role as Chief of Staff to a serial entrepreneur. 

When I left my role as Chief of Staff to Adam Hergenrother, one of the hardest things to say “good-bye” to was the conversation, community, and change that we had created through The Founder & The Force Multiplier. 

After a 6 month career break, I came to the conclusion that this chapter wasn’t over yet for me. There is still more to explore. More education and work to be done in the executive support industry. More entrepreneurs to help find their right-hand partner. More Executive Assistants and Chief of Staff careers to grow. More partnerships to teach how to lead well together. 

The Founder & The Force Multiplier believes in the power of the partnership and that the right one can truly change businesses and lives. 

And that is my goal. 

It certainly feels like a full circle moment. From assistant to Executive Assistant to Chief of Staff Soloprenuer. And while I’m still a soloprenuer (coach, online educator, and fractional Chief of Staff), I’m also now the owner of a company that is designed to help the “me” and the “Adam” 15 years ago. I knew back then that being an assistant, a right-hand partner, to an entrepreneurial leader was where I belonged, but I didn’t yet know that I could create such an incredible career in that role. Now, having been in both the assistant and the leadership seats, I will confidently continue to help others bridge the communication gaps that exist in these partnerships, help leaders and assistants find their right match, and help these dynamic duos (and sometimes trios!) navigate change, make high quality decisions, lead better, and achieve more together.

Force Multiplying Into the Future

When Adam and I wrote The Founder & The Force Multiplier: How Entrepreneurs and Executive Assistants Achieve More Together in February 2019, our focus was on the partnership between an entrepreneur and their right-hand employee (usually in the form of an Executive Assistant, Personal Assistant, or Chief of Staff).

What we’ve realized over time is that the principles that we live by and value extend far beyond the scrappy early days of a start-up, all the way to the C-Suite of Fortune 100 companies. An effective strategic partnership is a powerful thing.

I can not tell you how excited I am to be laser-focused on serving the unique needs of force multipliers and their leaders.

The Founder & The Force Multiplier’s book, coaching, and courses are designed from over 15 years of real-world leadership, business-building, and strategic partnership experience to empower working relationships and elevate companies and careers. We support:

  3. The Founder & The Force Multiplier Book
    The Founder and the Force Multiplier explores the partnership between the entrepreneur and the Executive Assistant. Listen to it together. Compare notes. Use it as a catalyst for engaging in fierce conversations. The power of the partnership only works when you are both committed to challenging each other and growing together every day. Throughout this book, authors, Adam and Hallie, share what has worked for them, what they’ve learned along this journey, and some best practices that they recommend you implement immediately to get results. It is their hope that the lessons you learn here will help you find success and fulfillment in your business, your career, and your life as a whole. Without a doubt, together you will achieve more.

Learn Together. Lead Together. Achieve More Together.

Adam and I created The Founder & The Force Multiplier to help leaders and Force Multipliers (AKA: Executive Assistants, Chiefs of Staff) find the right strategic partner, enhance their communication, navigate change, grow companies and careers, and lead better together.

I want to take just a minute to thank Adam for giving me this opportunity. I believe this is such a testament to Adam’s leadership and our commitment to fierce conversations and partnership-first thinking over our 13+ year relationship. And to Adam’s Executive Assistant, Jenna, for being such an incredible addition to the team and for carrying The Founder & The Force Multiplier torch while I was on my career break. I’m thrilled that they were both so willing to hand it back to me and allow me to carry on the vision that I see so clearly.

I do not take this responsibility lightly. Let’s go!
