Many small business owners struggle to create products that customers love or lack the technology required to power their online business. With product and technology coaching to start, scale or automate your online business, you’ll have more time to focus on serving your customers and growing your business.

Are you overwhelmed by technology?


If any of these statements resonate with you, then my technology coaching / implementation service will help you accelerate your online business:

  • There are so many options to choose from and I am not sure what is best for me
  • I am not sure what is even technically possible
  • What technology should I be using given my product offerings and how I want to serve my customers?
  • What tech products are the best for solopreneurs?
  • I want to use technology that does not rely on paying someone continuously – self-sufficiency is important
  • I need cost-effective technology that does not significantly cut into my profit
  • I need technology that enables me to work from anywhere
  • I don’t have time to stay up to speed on the latest tech – my focus is on serving my customers

Are you frustrated with how to monetize products customers will love?

  • How can I test my business idea without spending a lot of money and time upfront?
  • How do I design and monetize a new product category to compete on being different instead of the continuous cycle of better?
  • How do I differentiate my product in what appears to be a crowded space?
  • What is the best way to get feedback from customers and prospects on unmet needs?
  • I have an idea for a product or service but I am not sure how to craft a compelling offer that resonates with my target buyer
  • What go-to-market strategies should I use to reduce buying friction and scale product revenue?

Hi, I’m James Gray.

I am a Chief Product Officer, coach, and technologist.

Over three decades, I have dedicated my career to envisioning, building, and operating software products and solutions at leading companies including Microsoft.

I love using technology to solve problems and open up new possibilities in life.

I ran IT inside of Microsoft for ten years so I know how important tech-enabled processes are for running and growing a business.

As a Chief Product Officer, I have deep experiencing designing product categories, building products, and growing revenue to become a market leader.
