Britt Smith


A Note To Begin With:

After 5 years in agency work, I decided to start my own consultancy to address a need I saw as outstanding. Businesses face the challenge of whether to hire an organizational leader (project manager, COO, etc.) in order to steady the workload and pursue new business—or—burn out employees pursuing new business in order to afford hiring the organizational leader. Second Gear was founded on the idea that you can have both by partnering with a consultant.

While running my own business has been a challenge and a success within itself, I find that I am ready to take on a position at an established company and affect change and positive outcomes from the inside.
