Outsourced COO Services, Systems Development, Operations Education, and Resources for Women-led AEC Firms. 

Hey, ya'll!


We're all about balance and proportions. So much in fact - that we named our company after the concept of the Golden Ratio. We believe a great business is designed by balancing the personal and professional, and the work and the woo. We've made it our business to identify the optimum proportions of each system and operation in your business in order to optimize it, and you, for the greatest success possible. Ratio Solutions Group LLC provides project and operations consulting in addition to full business management, business strategy and development to architects, interior designers, engineers and contractors - online and to businesses local to Athens, Georgia.

Good businesses don't become great businesses by accident. 

Tired of the overwhelm? Need to focus your time on growing your business? Want time for yourself, family, friends, hobbies? 

Life's too short for business not to be fun, sustainable and lucrative. 

Let's get you get back to being the rain making, business growing, visionary you're meant to be with strategic operations, streamlined systems, and a dash of RATIO magic.

here's what WE do:


You need someone on your side who understands both your industry and efficient business operations.

About us


“Catherine is the absolute definition of Southern generosity and kindness. She truly cares about designers and helping us customize the BOD process to the tone of voice and values of our business. She has such great verbiage for working through disagreements or misunderstandings with trades. And so generous in sharing resources and examples to guide you through a tough situation. She put me at ease knowing exactly how to deal with a prickly situation with a tradesperson and the best way to handle it in the future. You can tell she has a ton of experience and knows how processes should work together. She was born to be a business coach and you get that sense within 5 minutes of talking with her. Her kindness and warm heart really shine through. You can tell why she has a successful design firm because she practices what she preaches and does it in a kind, caring and honest way.”

let's do this thing

Don't Do Business Like Everyone Else.

Make today the day that you took the first step to boosting your efficiency and your profit margins - without sacrificing your sanity. Running an AEC firm doesn't have to be "we've always done it this way".
It can be fun and easy, attracting your dream clients and projects, while ensuring at the end of the day - work doesn't follow you home.
