About this Speaker
Juliann’s approach to business and her professional life has been evolving since she started her first business, as a mobile disc jockey when she was 16. After high school, she continued this business while attaining her degree in Theatre and Fine Arts from Emporia State University. Juliann added a traditional job to her repertoire, as a legal assistant by day. This experience took Juliann through a series of events that ultimately resulted in her launching a private detective agency!
As CEO/Chief Investigator with only a great reputation and contacts in hand, Juliann quickly learned the ropes in this male-dominated industry and continued to build a very successful agency for 15 years. Juliann grew that company until, as most serial entrepreneurs do, she could no longer ignore her calling to take herself in a different direction with a whole new set of adventures! She sold her private detective agency and has never looked back.
Juliann has since worked as a business development executive for private industry clients, community organizations, such as the Chamber of Commerce, and a national women’s professional networking group. During that time, Juliann also launched B.BOK Bags, a full line of custom-made handbags that sold in the luxury market. She built and grew this one for nearly six years until the “great recession” hit. It was during the recession that her current vision was born. Many of her peers and former colleagues were seeking her guidance and asking her to share her advice. That signaled the need for starting “Focus on You”, which has eventually expanded into the JULO Strategy team that we know and love today. Under her leadership, JULO Strategy is now 13 years old and enjoys a 95% success rate in guiding CEOs to accelerated growth!
Juliann is sought after as an expert in the field and a frequent keynote speaker. She is also engaged in entrepreneurial ecosystem building, mentoring, and strategizing with other ecosystem builders on CEO Mindset™ across the globe as a member of the national Startup Champions Network.
