Starting to wonder if it's possible to grow your

consulting business without burning out?


It's time to ditch the overwhelm of doing

everything yourself,

so you can focus on being the CEO

and have the impact you envisioned.


Rescuing Founder/CEO consultants

from drowning in the back end of their

business as they scale to a team.


    Grow Your Business

    Has your revenue plateaued?

    Imagine the possibilities if you were able to hit or even exceed your revenue goal.

    Heading

    Focus on Opportunities

    Are you spending too much time on lower-value tasks?


    Doing everything in your business means high-value opportunities are more than likely put on the back burner.


    Imagine how your profitibility could increase if you were laser-focused on revenue-generating projects.


    I love to see my clients breathe a sigh of relief, knowing they have a trusted associate in place who keeps the business operations running smoothly.

    Restore Balance 

    Is time spent with family and on self-care being squeezed out of your day?


    You can only push yourself so far before burnout happens.


    Imagine how you would feel if you were able to carve out more time to manage your health, be fully present with your family, and have a profitable consulting business.


    I help my clients maintain work and life balance by lightening their load and increasing time in their day to focus on what matters most.

Meet Leslie Martinez

Fractional Operations Manager

The Business Mechanic

I help Consultant CEOs who are scaling to a team take their operations

to the next level so they can experience more freedom, reach their potential and fulfill their vision.


My Mission

My mission is to help purpose-driven CEOs create operational efficiencies so that they can fully step into the CEO role and fulfill their vision.

Over 30 years of corporate experience in several industries has honed my ability to look for solutions to inefficiencies that slow down business growth. I love transforming chaos into order!

My Background

Reflecting on my career, I was destined to become a Fractional Operations Manager. The seeds were planted as a teenager while working at my father's dental practice. Assisting his Office Manager at the front desk, I came to understand the importance of customer care and saw that organization and processes keep a business operating like a well-oiled machine.

After graduating with a B.A. in Business Administration, I worked in the energy industry. After 10 years, working in a large company lost its appeal, and eventually, I was ready for a change.

An opportunity to become the Business Manager of my husband's small manufacturing business developed. In this position, I managed business operations, created processes, and developed simple automation to improve efficiency. I loved the challenge of learning a new field and new skills!

After 7 years, I returned to work in corporate and gained Executive Assistant experience supporting C-Suite executives. I then spent 10 years in the Human Resources field and received my PHR certification.

A New Chapter

In 2020, I decided to pivot out of corporate and start my business, LM Virtual Services. My values are at the heart of my business - Integrity, Empathy, Making a Difference, Positivity, and Freedom.  

My unique experience and values are what set me apart from others. It’s my passion to get to know my client and their business. Building on this knowledge, I use my superpowers, organization and system development, to help them grow their business.

My Personal Life

My favorite pastime is reading. I love a good mystery, and a series I particularly enjoy is “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” by Alexander McCall Smith. While fiction is fun, I usually am simultaneously reading a business/personal development book. One of my favorites is the classic “How to Win Friends and Influence People’ by Dale Carnegie.

To counteract the hours of computer sitting, I make time in my daily schedule for Jazzercise which incorporates aerobic dancing and strength training with music and fun. A win-win!

Family is important to me. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our son, daughter-in-law, and grandson.





You have an inspiring vision for your consulting business. You are transforming companies and impacting lives!  


With a growing business, it's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks that drain your time and energy. Let me help you get back in the driver's seat!


I'll manage the gears of your operations so you can reclaim your time and focus on what matters most.

    Your Questions Answered

    What is the difference between a Virtual Assistant and a Fractional Operations Manager?

    A Virtual Assistant (VA) is assigned tasks, primarily administrative, to complete for the client. A Fractional Operations Manager oversees the day-to-day business operations and strategizes with the client on projects. A Fractional Operations Manager manages a project from start to finish. Depending on the size of the team, a Fractional Operations Manager might manage a VA.

    What are your hours of operation?                       

    Business hours are Monday-Thursday between 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Central Time and Friday between 8 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Central Time. The office is closed on Saturday and Sunday and all Federal holidays.

    What is the best way to communicate with you?

    The best way to communicate with me for non-urgent matters is by email. For urgent or time-sensitive matters, a messaging app like Slack, Telegram, or Voxer is recommended during hours of operations.

    What is your turn-around time for responding to me?

    During my hours of operation, I have time blocks on my schedule to check for messages. All messages will be replied to within 24 business hours during the hours of operation. Messages received outside the hours of operation or on a federal holiday will be addressed on the next business day.

    I only need one of the services you provide. Would you work with me?

    I would be happy to have a complimentary consultation with you and discuss your needs. If we are a good fit then I can create a custom package to meet your needs.                                                                                            

                                    

    How will I be billed for your services?          

    I use Wave to invoice my clients.

    The initial deposit is due before the agreed-upon start date. 

    You will receive a monthly invoice by email on the 1st of the month. Payment is expected no later than the 15th day of the month.

    If the payment is not received, a late fee of 1.5% of the outstanding amount compounded monthly will be charged.   

    You have the option to pay with a credit card or ACH bank transfer.           

    Do I need to sign a contract?                                                            

    Yes, if we decide to work together, I will send you my client agreement. It will need to be signed before the start date.
