About JoLees Solutions

My Lifestyle Business

Welcome to JoLees Solutions, home of my online ecommerce business, as well as my work with hundreds of online and technology startups.

I deliver unique, eclectic home decor through my online store, Kazoo Decor, and several popular online marketplaces.

I also offer coaching services, guides and templates to help other solo business owners build their own businesses. I love helping solopreneurs, startups and other small businesses thrive.


About Me

Joanna Lees

My name is Joanna Lees, and I am the solo owner of JoLees Solutions.

I have been running my own online business since 2007. 

Prior to that, I spent 14 years as a strategic marketing manager at Intel where I developed partnerships with other technology vendors to help build their businesses on the Intel platform.

In all, I have been working to help startups grow their customer base for almost three decades.

  • Experience

    I have been working with startups since 1994. Names may change, and technologies evolve, but the core requirements to grow a successful online business remain.

  • Ecosystem Knowledge

    Having spent decades in the online and technology industry, I know that a small online business can only be successful by understanding the complete end-to-end ecosystem of which they are a part, and knowing how to influence and leverage other ecosystem players to the benefit of the business.

Next Generation Business

Building Lifestyle Businesses, One Block at a Time

Running a solo operation can feel like a never-ending jigsaw puzzle

A small lifestyle business has many moving pieces. As business owners we wear a lot of different hats. Better planning and process helps lifestyle business owners spend more time on the parts of the business we love.

What do I do?

I believe the next generation of business is lifestyle business

Our work life should support and enhance our interests and hobbies, not fight against it in a never-ending attempt to achieve "work-life balance".

I try to put this into action through my writing, coaching, consulting and my own e-commerce business. You can learn more about each of these below.
