Focus On YOU Strategy, LLC started in the Greater Philadelphia area ten years ago when the recession hit. People were coming to me asking for advice. It occurred to me that I had knowledge I could share with others to help them through a difficult time. I returned to my roots in Kansas City and then to Florida and discovered the same knowledge was needed wherever I went, and not just during the recession. People were always “stuck” or needed some guidance on how to move their businesses or careers forward. People need to focus on themselves first and get in CEO mindset so they can then help others and their business. We have clients all over the world and provide help with our CEO Mindset Class, One-on-One Strategy Sessions and Workshops. The need for those services grew to create the Focus on Entrepreneurs Conference and now Focus On Business Owners Network LLC (FOBO Network). This is a very exciting time as we grow and Focus On YOU!

Our CEO: Juliann Nichols

Part creative ninja, part connector and mentor, serial entrepreneur – Juliann Nichols is a native of Kansas City and founded Focus on YOU Strategy in 2007, after perceiving the need for a proactive business advisor who challenges the status quo, asks the right questions, and adds value at every interaction.
