LVL-Up CEO Wins Prestigious Business Award For Most Innovative Woman Of The Year

Arlington, VA -  LVL-Up Strategies, a leading small business consulting firm, is proud to announce that Rona Jobe, CEO at LVL-Up has been named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Most Innovative Woman of the Year in Business Services in the 18th Annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

“When I started LVL-Up Strategies, my goal was to create a company that helped small businesses reach their next level while also providing sustainable career opportunities for Military and Foreign Service spouses. Too often small business owners lack the resources and tools to grow their operations and marketing. Likewise, driven spouses of military and foreign service officers are talented strategists and resourceful problem solvers, but struggle with career progression when moving post to post,” said CEO Rona Jobe. “This award is an incredible honor that I share with my very talented team of military and foreign service spouses all over the world.”

Conceived as a means to recognize women in business, The Stevie® Awards for Women in Business is an international business awards competition that is open to all organizations worldwide. More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year. The award honors female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world's premier business awards.

LVL-Up Strategies is a minority, woman-owned business based out of Arlington, Virginia. Founded in 2020, LVL-Up Strategies propels small businesses to their next level by creating and executing sustainable and profitable business strategies. Concurrently, LVL-Up employs military and Department of State spouses so that they have the opportunity to grow their careers in an often unpredictable and stagnant work environment. This symbiotic connection of talented and driven individuals is critical to the company’s success.

“Propelling small businesses to the next level is definitely not easy, and what Rona does for such SMEs will add value to many such entrepreneurs in time,” said the Stevie Award judging panel. "Jobe has produced extraordinary growth metrics during her first year in business, including an eye-popping 6,164% growth in revenue and 900% client list growth. Incredible results are a reflection of great leadership.”

Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 160 business professionals around the world, working on eight juries. Winners will be celebrated during a virtual awards ceremony on Thursday, January 13, 2022.
