Fractional:

To take a permanent role in a

fraction of the time thought necessary.

The world is changing.

Change with it.

In 2023 when I wrote the first draft of Revolt: The Rise of Fractional and the Death of Full Time, there were about 2,000 people on LinkedIn who described themselves as Fractional professionals. Today that number is 100,000. And growing. That is a 2000% growth rate over two years. The question to ask yourself isn’t are you going back to the way things were? The question to ask yourself is how are you going to move forward?


The Fractional train is here. I encourage you to hop on for the best ride of your career.

Revenue from

Fractional Clients.

Three clients as a Fractional pro is still less time than a full- time job. Plus less risk, great revenue and far better life balance.

Revenue from

Fractional Opportunities.

It’s not just clients. The freedom of Fractional opens up time for paid projects, paid board roles, paid coaching and paid advising.

Fractional Hiring™

Trouble hiring? Find the right fractional fit.

Girl and Unicorn Fantasy

Hiring full time staff is expensive, time consuming and, to be honest, very risky. Tens of thousands of outstanding executive's have moved on from that model. You can too.

A program with candidates for $5K?

Nope, not a fairy tale. If you have hired before you know that you are in for two, three or ten times that by the time you have candidates to talk to. Not here. Two simple sessions on how to hire Fractional pros and you will be talking to the best Fractional candidates out there.

No more unicorns.

"Finding the right talent to drive our business forward was a major challenge, so discovering Voyageur University and their fractional leadership model was a game-changer. Jason and John's guidance and support in pursuing top-tier fractional leaders has not only helped to fill crucial gaps in our team but has also brought fresh perspectives and expertise to the table. I highly recommend Voyageur University to any company looking to optimize their talent strategy."
