Case Studies

After hundreds of hours working closely with Cam, it would be hard to describe our relationship any other way than life changing. If you’re a fan of doing deep work, and truly understanding yourself – why you do what you do – and how to arrive at your own next step forward whether in business or personal life… having a guide and mentor like Cam, skilled in the art of communication (paired with patience and perspective) has meant more to me than I can express in a LinkedIn recommendation.

~ Eric Bort, Founder of Clearly Trained

Cam has a calm, unassuming presence — but don’t let that fool you. His presence in a business makes quite the impact. In our work with Cam, he not only coached our founder CEO on high level strategy, but he was also a formative coach for me in my own operational journey as Head of Operations for a quickly evolving startup. He is an expert at asking the right questions in order to lead you to your own answers. Cam’s coaching can only be described as holistic, human-driven, and uniquely able to span across tactical and strategic.

~ Natalie Gregorian, Founder of Tip Top Ops

Working with Cam is like Navy Seal training for communication. I use the communication and leadership tools he instilled in me every day whether it’s running the business or growing personal relationships. Aside from communication, he helps you understand what you value – for me, it’s peace, and after about three months, people started saying things like, “You seem more relaxed and peaceful, Zach.” If you are ambitious to learn how to play ‘the game’ at a higher level, whether it’s with business or personal life, then I highly recommend working Cam.

Imagine being at the helm of a ship charting new territories.

That was Cam’s role as Fractional COO/CMO and Advisor with Jhana Li and the Spyglass Ops team.

It wasn’t just work; it was a quest. A quest to architect a sales and marketing system from the ground up, a task as challenging as it was exhilarating. Picture the intensity of a command center during a space launch – that was our team during the build, with Cam leading the charge.

Then, there were the strategy sessions, akin to gathering with seasoned generals plotting our next big move. His role on the leadership team wasn’t just about participation; it was about driving change, steering our marketing and sales efforts towards uncharted success.

The creation of a matchmaking/recruiting product? Think of it as crafting a bridge, connecting the right people in a harmonious dance of opportunity and talent.

But it wasn’t all about the systems and strategies. The heart of our mission was our vision, and he was at the forefront, designing and facilitating a 3-day intensive. It was more than a workshop; it was a journey into the soul of our company, aligning our compass to the true north of our collective aspirations.

Advising at an executive level was the final piece of Cam’s journey with Jhana Li and Spyglass Ops. Here, he wasn’t just an advisor; he was a mentor, a guide, leading through turbulent waters with a steady hand and a clear vision.

This chapter of his career was more than a list of responsibilities. It was a saga of growth, leadership, and transformation, both for himself and for the team that he had the honor to lead and grow with.

Join me on a transformative journey with Dogslanding, where I turned a one-remote-employee venture into a thriving, multifaceted team.

First, I built the team’s communication and project management hub in Notion. This wasn’t just about organization; it was creating the backbone for our collaborative efforts, a digital command center for our growing team.

The recruitment phase was like assembling a dream team – a Product Manager, Senior Media Buyer, CRO Specialist, copywriters, video editors, and a Brand Manager. Each new hire was a strategic addition, infusing fresh talent and energy into the company. Onboarding and training them was about more than just imparting skills; it was about cultivating a shared vision and fostering a dynamic work culture.

Leading team meetings and facilitating a pod structure among the team, I ensured that our efforts were not only synchronized but also amplified through collaboration and innovation.

I also played a crucial role in building a content distribution system. This system established influencer relationships for UGC content, streamlined the creative process, and enhanced our advertising strategies with effective A/B testing.

Beyond the operational realm, my role took a strategic turn when I traveled to Rome, Italy, to meet with the company’s founder. This wasn’t merely a meeting; it was a pivotal strategy session where we crafted the company’s vision, mission, and values, setting the course for its future.

When I started, Dogslanding had two main products. By the end of my contract, we were poised to launch the fourth product, marking a significant expansion in the company’s market presence.

This chapter at Dogslanding was a testament to the power of strategic team building, operational excellence, and visionary planning, transforming a small operation into a burgeoning enterprise.
