About - Gina Gomez


If you’re a business owner who is ready to finally become the success story on the cover of Entrepreneur magazine that you’ve always wanted to be, you’re in the right place.

If you’re anything like our clients, right about now you’re thinking:

I wish I had time to truly run my business, most of the time the business runs me.
I love my business, but if I’m truly honest I don’t love managing people.
Some days (and sometimes a lot of days), I don’t know WTF I’m doing.

We get it.

Running a business is hard. Running a successful business and being a great leader, colleague, boss, and all the other things, well…it’s a lot. But it’s not impossible.

That’s where we come in.

We provide clients with the right training, tools, and support to help them lead with confidence and build the business of their dreams.

Here at Gina Gomez & Associates, our business strategy and advising has an uncanny ability to cut through the fluff and identify what’s holding you back from reaching your revenue goals, leadership potential, and how you’ll feel when you finally have the business you’ve been working so hard to build.

Work With Us

Here’s the good news: you’re not alone.

When you work with us at Gina Gomez & Associates, we’ll implement the strategies and practices that will help you:

  • Lead with clarity knowing where you want your business to go and how you’re going to get there
  • Increase your ability to make consistent decisions that create a solid foundation for the people who look to you for answers
  • Know that the positive results that come from it are because you made the commitment to make it happen and followed through

The result? There’s no stopping you!

We help you capitalize on what’s working and restructure what’s not working in your business so you can strengthen your internal operations and celebrate the positive results that are sure to follow.

With the right support and tools in place, you’ll be able to move forward with confidence and build a thriving business where the results speak for themselves.

Work With Us

Maybe you’ve done well, and you’re ready to raise the bar and go bigger.

Perhaps you know something isn’t working in your business, but you haven’t figured out how to fix it.

Or…maybe you know what you need to do, but haven’t implemented it yet (and maybe you’re not totally sure how to implement it or don’t know where to start!)

Welcome to Leadership! We’ve all been there and we still visit from time to time. The difference is now we know what happens if we stay too long. (So we don’t.)

When we meet, we’re looking for the hidden issues and long-term solutions that will best position you moving forward.

Imagine being faced with a difficult situation. Now imagine you have someone on your side to help solve the issue who sees opportunities to save or increase revenue and provides lasting solutions.
Sounds good, right?

If you’re ready to discover how you can work with us to get the results you’re looking for (and the support you need), learn more about how we can work together below.

Head of Work-Life Balance


Linus joined GG&A in May of 2022 and immediately took charge. As the head of Work-Life Balance, Linus is a constant reminder that everything is better with a treat and a nap. He also reminds us that, in order to be effective, meetings need some sort of shenanigans intermittently sprinkled throughout. At work, you can find Linus participating in Zoom meetings, announcing the arrival of packages and UPS, and giving side-eye until he’s greeted accordingly. When he’s not at work, you can find Linus chasing his owner, and GG&A owner, Gina around the house and waiting patiently for his grilled salmon dinner. Linus would like you to know he is responsible for the success of GG&A due to the fact that he can close any sale with just a wag of his tail.
