Amber McCue on Systems, Planning, and the Power of a Flexible Vision [NE 004]

Amber McCue is the founder of NiceOps, a modern business management and operations consultancy based out of Annapolis, Maryland. She’s the creator of several noteworthy programs & courses for busy and first-time business owners, including her signature How to Clone Yourself, the long-term hands-on program Freshly Implemented, where she acts as an outsourced COO for struggling small business owners, and CEO School, a brand new way for smart business owners to stop letting their business run the show, and start running the show for themselves instead.

I met Amber YEARS ago when I was prepping for the first launch of A Course About Copy® . Fell in love with her during her Planathon, worked with her for a half day strategy sesh, and mapped out a 90 day plan (that I ended up squishing into liiiiike 45).

She played a huge part in helping me SEE my whole six-figures-in-year-one goal as a tangible possibility.

She’s got a brilliant mind, gorgeous energy, two businesses, three daughters (one teenager, two little ones) and a husband who spends a good chunk of time traveling for work. (Of course we talk about that too.)

You’re in for a treat, buddy.



  • How and WHY she started her first biz on lunchtimes after bedtimes (working full time)
  • Her refreshing spirit on the adventures of solo parenting
  • Dream Nanny 101 – how they manifested the perf support + made the work-from-home arrangement work for all
  • The power of a revenue plan and contingency planning (+ how to leave space for magic)
  • A GORGEOUS reframe if you’re judging yourself *solely* on biz growth


There’s always more to talk about after the show (seriously – every time I stop recording I think oh WAIT! I could’ve shared this too!). Make sure you join The Naptime Empires Playground on Facebook to add your voice to the conversation.
