Be real, be you. We embrace the full spectrum of our humanity—passions, quirks, and all. Straight talk is our language, fostering growth with respect and candor.
We are not here for the whiners, for the victims. We are here for the Operations people who take life by the horns and overcome any challenge. The Ops Spot is a place to bring your challenges, without fear of judgment. But we don’t wallow or coddle, we help each other. Every problem is brought to the table with a commitment to taking action & finding a solution.
Share freely, learn exponentially. Our culture thrives on “holding nothing back.” When you contribute your insights, expect a wealth of knowledge in return. This will 10X your learning.
We get Operations—and we’ve got your back. Celebrate wins and milestones together; our collective success amplifies your career and achievements.
Play hard, work fun. In our world, work is play- and we’re passionate about it! The Ops Spot is where passion meets profession. If you “nerd out” on cool innovations, tech, and other things that your co-workers just don’t get, you’ll be in good company here.
In the crisp wintry air of Sedona, Cameron Herold and Jhana Li met to discuss their shared vision to create a new kind of community. A network For Operators, By Operators. As a result, The Ops Spot was born with the mission to create a global platform where Operations Pros grow and thrive together.
Operators often find themselves isolated, under-represented, and struggling to find the resources they need to win. That’s why we created The Ops Spot — your one-stop shop for connection, innovation, and the resources you need to elevate and accelerate your career.
Who We Are:
Cameron Herold, former COO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, and known for his bestsellers “Vivid Vision” and “The Second In Command,” today propels organizations to new heights through his COO Alliance, exclusively serving COOs of companies with $5M to $500M in revenue globally.
Jhana Li, with her expertise in catapulting early-stage startups to success, now channels her skills as a COO and Head Operations Coach to hundreds of digital companies into nurturing emerging Operators at her Spyglass Academy.

In February 2023, while at Chocola Tree in Sedona, Jhana and Cameron struck up a conversation with Hendrix, a tech-savvy optimist on the lookout for a meaningful role. As they shared The Ops Spot’s vision, Hendrix lit up — he too was on a mission to help operations people excel in their transformation as leaders – making this the dream role he’d been seeking.
His shared mission, enthusiasm, and a perfectly timed joke sealed the deal: Hendrix was the perfect match for our community!
The Ops Spot is an exclusive online community tailored for those at the heart of operations — from Ops Managers to Director’s of Ops, and GMs. It’s the go-to hub for any operational role, big or small (even COOs of companies with revenues under $5M). Our members typically run businesses averaging $10M in revenue, but there’s no minimum size to join. Imagine a place you can hang out with peers, on an easy-to-use app that empowers professional growth and development, learning, collective problem-solving, and personal connections.—all designed to elevate you and your company.
To become a part of The Ops Spot, you need to be actively engaged in an operations or managerial role. We are focused on nurturing the growth of operations professionals, so CEOs and entrepreneurs would be better served elsewhere. If you’re an “Ops Nerd” like us, eager to enhance your operational prowess, you’re exactly who we’re looking for. COOs are encouraged to enroll their operations team members to foster a culture of learning and development within their organization. COOs of businesses with less than $5M in annual revenue may also join.
Applying to The Ops Spot is very straightforward. If you’re in an operations role, you can sign up immediately. Just click “Join now” anywhere on this page to register. During registration, if a current member referred you, make sure to list their name on the next page — it’s part of how we keep our community connected and trusted. We may review your application to ensure alignment with our community’s goals, but generally, if you’re in ops, you’re in!

COOs, VP Ops, Director Ops, GMs, Presidents, or any manager in any operations role, in companies doing a minimum of $500K in revenue, our average member is $10M in size. The Ops Spot is a place you can hang out with peers, on an app that fosters professional growth and development, learning, collective problem-solving, and personal connections.
The Ops Spot only accepts people in operations roles, no CEOs can join. Your business must be generating >$500K in revenue, at a bare minimum.
Anyone in an ops role can join right away. If you’ve been referred by a current member of The Ops Spot, please remember to list their name when you register.
The Ops Spot’s number one priority is to grow a global community of ops people for ops people. The more great members we have, the more everyone will learn and grow. So the only way we’re limiting membership- is no assholes allowed.
Yay- you asked! We take our five core values, super seriously. Routinely breaking core values will get you thrown out of The Ops Spot
While we hope to support members in-person events in the future, The Ops Spot is currently virtual. That said, our co-founder Cameron Herold has got you covered with the COO Alliance. They host 2 in-person events each year known as COO Connect – which you should definitely check out!
Your year starts the day you join.
At The Ops Spot, we prioritize the security of your company’s information. Our community is built on trust and discretion, with stringent policies ensuring that all members uphold the highest standards of confidentiality. Rest assured, your conversations are protected within our network.
