Leverage Your Expertise & Generate A Consistent High Income Every Month From Home
By becoming an in-demand, irreplaceable, Certified Online Business Manager™

If you’re an Online Business Manager who’s ready to uplevel your services and position yourself ahead of the pack… 

…or a VA who’s already working an OBM-type role and wants to own it and make more money... 

Then you’re gonna love this.

The Certified OBM® Certification is a comprehensive training program that teaches online professionals like you how to leverage your existing expertise to generate a consistent & scaleable income as a Certified Online Business Manager™, so that you can live life by your own design whilst having the support of stable foundations.
If you’re reading this, you know that now is the time to level up your online business.

You probably realised a while back that you’re giving a ton of value to your clients by going above and beyond your current role.

You might be feeling capped at how much you can charge and how many clients you can reasonably have in your schedule at one time...

Maybe you’re already specializing without realising it and that’s stopping you from breaking your earning threshold...

Or perhaps you just feel like you need some direction to be better where you’re at right now, because most of the help you’re seeing out there is based on simply getting started.

If you’re nodding your head at any of this… you’re not the only VA or OBM I know who’s feeling that way. 

You’re most likely ready to start being more assertive with your clients about making the money you need to be, but you’re lacking that secret sauce which will position you at a higher level and prove your worth. 

That’s what becoming a Certified OBM® is all about.

When you’re Certified, you’re working above the basic OBM level.

You’ll have a way more advanced skill set... 

You’ll be more assertive and confident in your abilities...

And you’ll be asking for higher fees as a result whilst working with less clients. 

But there’s a lot of ‘fake it til you make it’ and ‘charge your worth’ type training out there, where you don’t really gain the experience to justify your worth. 

And that’s the thing - clients want your all.

You could talk that ‘make that bread’ type talk without a genuine understanding of how to do your job right...

But if your clients aren’t getting your all or ‘making that bread’ themselves, then neither will you in the long run. 

And this is where I see so many OBMs (and VAs) going wrong. 

Those who want to break the cap off their earning potential. 

Those who don’t have the tools and strategies they need to specialize. 

And those who aren’t getting that experience on how to be AMAZING where they’re already at.

That’s why I’m going to help you own your worth the same way I did. 

A way that isn’t unstable, anxiety-inducing or ‘faking it ‘til you make it’. 

Over a decade ago, I moved to the opposite side of the planet and got a job soullessly busting my butt in corporate. 

I was also side hustling as a Virtual Assistant, working 24/7 and going WAY above and beyond my VA duties. On top of that, I was only making ‘okay’ money and it wasn’t nearly enough to leave my stable corporate salary.  

What I didn’t realise? 

I was actually owning the role of an OBM. 

So I know how it feels to be giving tons of value to your clients, but not feeling like you have that direction or confidence to become assertive enough to truly earn your worth. 

I knew there had to be a way to grow the skill set I needed in order to confidently charge more, be financially stable AND be able to work from anywhere in the world, so that I could spend time with my family or take a vacay at will. 

That’s when I was introduced to the International Association of Online Business Managers (IAOBM) and decided to become a Certified OBM®. 

I’d NEVER spent a chunk of money like this on myself before, so I had a million doubts running through my mind - the same doubts I hear a lot of aspiring Certifed OBMs® have. 

What if I’m not successful or good at this? 

What if I invest and then do nothing with this qualification? 

What if I end up feeling guilty for spending this money on myself rather than my family? 

I felt selfish. I felt scared. I began questioning my instincts. 

But you know what they say about trusting your gut and pushing through fear…

Fast forward to now. Take a look at my list of achievements:
I run a multi-6 figure online business earning 10X what I used to in corporate.
I’ve scaled my own OBM Agency, grown a supportive team and scored a jam-packed, well-paying client roster.
I was hand selected and trained by Tina Forsyth to be a Certified OBM Trainer (my true calling!) and I’ve trained HUNDREDS of successful OBMs
I get to take me-time whenever I want, I go on multiple family vacations a year AND I can work from home in my Pj’s with no bra on (amen to that!).
And I want that for you too.

That’s why I’ve been accredited by the International Association of Online Business Managers to run THE comprehensive 90-day program that will help you generate a consistent and predictable income as a Certified OBM® every month... without all the ‘fake it til you make it’ or ‘make that bread’ BS.

One that’s going to give you the skill set you need to be a better OBM... 

The confidence you need to be more assertive with your clients…

And a skill set which brings so much value to the table that you’ll have no trouble breaking your earning threshold (and then some!).

The Certified OBM® Certification & Training Program

The comprehensive 90-day program for OBMs and VAs that will give you the direction you need to bust the cap off your earning potential, specialize your skill set and assertively charge your worth, in order to generate a consistent and predictable monthly income.

When you get Certified, you’ll have the power to:
Uncap Your Earning Potential. You’ll be working on a monthly retainer, packages or incentive-based payment structure. I’ll show you how to ditch the limiting $ per hour system that keeps you spinning on that hamster wheel.
Work with Your Ideal Clients. You’ll have the ability to choose a small group of clients (usually no more than 3-4), who pay you well, value your services and can’t live without you!
 Find New Clients by Word of Mouth, because when you contribute to the success of others, word gets around very quickly! You’ll soon be flooded with work—and looking to hire your own OBM team like I did (it’s really not as scary as it sounds!)
Enjoy Longer-Term Client Relationships. You’ll become integral to your client’s business. That means less time marketing yourself and looking for new clients! You’ll get a deeper understanding of how to form business strategies and find yourself creatively partnering with your clients and supporting them to create new products
Establish Yourself as an Expert. You’ll be getting in early on this fast-paced market and get access to a world of opportunities. By becoming Certified, you’re positioning yourself ahead of your competition. Unlike others who call themselves OBMs, you’ll have the certification from a trusted source to prove it. Plus, you’ll show your client you’re the real deal - not only because you’ve got that stamp of quality, but because you’ve invested in your career.

Become a member of the International Association of Online Business Managers (IAOBM). The IAOBM is a professional membership organization dedicated to the promotion and advancement of the Certified OBM® profession worldwide. As a member, you’ll get access to HUGE array of IAOBM resources and ways to uplevel your OBM Service, including:

  • Listing on the IAOBM Directory
  • Request for Proposal (RFPs) (where potential clients can search the directory and request your services)
  • Access to up-to-date members-only training resources
  • and SO much more...

This is what’s going to ensure you remain current in the industry and set you apart from the rest of the OBMs out there.

This program is for you if you’re:
An OBM who’s ROCKING IT for your clients. You want to hone in your skill set, work with fewer clients and earn more money. You just need some direction and training in order to be better where you’re already at.  
Someone who is calling themselves a VA, but offering SO much more. You’re actually already specializing or owning an OBM role without realising it. Now you’re ready to take the cap off your $35 an hour earnings by landing a few solid clients who will pay you what you're worth, so that you can live your best life as an OBM. 
A VA or OBM who’s not being assertive enough to charge your clients what you’re worth. You want to give your clients real value and  a reasonable expectation of what you’re worth. You just need the confidence and skill set that will get you there. 
This program is not for you if :
You’re a “get rich quick” wannabe. Buying an online course will never be a move that makes you millions instantly. You have to be prepared to put in the work to see the results. 
You’re already an amazing OBM with your own fully scaled agency. Go you! Keep sipping that mojito from your sun lounger.  
You’re not interested in landing high-paying clients, having the stability of a predictable monthly income, or being able to manage your own time (like picking your kids up from school every day) or being able to go on a beach break whenever you want.

Still have burning questions? I've got the answers...


Q - Do I really need to be certified?

Really great question, and the answer is of course "it depends".

OBM Certification is certainly not a requirement for working as an Online Business Manager. And, in fact, there are many excellent people working in this role who are not certified.

However, OBM Certification is currently one of the only ways for OBMs and their potential clients to gain confidence in each other.

When a client hires a Certified Online Business Manager ™, they can be confident that this person has the knowledge and expertise required for the job. Certification allows you to connect faster with new clients and start off in a relationship of mutual trust based on this common knowledge and expertise.

Plus, it also shows clients that you’re serious about working as an Online Business Manager. The fact that you’ve made the investment of time and energy to pursue training and certification proves that this isn’t something you're just going to "try and see how it goes" – this kind of commitment speaks volumes about your dedication and intention.


Q - I’m just starting out in the online space. Is this right for me?

The OBM Certification training is comprehensive and will give you a foundational grounding in OBM skills, so you can enroll even if you’ve only been a VA or OBM for a short time.

If you’re coming out of corporate and feel like becoming a Certified OBM ® is too big of a leap for you right now, or you’re not ready to make this investment just yet, we've got a free training that might be just the thing for you. Learn more about the training here.


Q - Do I need management experience or qualifications?

I have met so many fellow online service providers over the years who are worried about lack of qualifications or management experience. And I get questions all the time about where I got my confidence to manage a team of five. And here’s the thing — we all have it in us! We manage our homes, our families, our lives, our clients, and their projects on a daily basis. And since the training program includes a lot of practical and strategic information about how online businesses are run, and what’s expected from a manager, you’ll quickly gain the confidence to step up and take charge.


Q - I’m worried my clients won’t pay me OBM rates

If you are performing management tasks like delegating to team members, planning and supervising marketing campaigns, and helping your client directly to grow their business, you should already be charging OBM rates.

Having been in this situation myself, I can tell you that some clients will jump on board straight away, but others might need some time for “transition.” We’ll talk about how to handle all of this in the course, even down to what to say.


Q - I’m worried I don’t have time for this. How long will it take?

The course runs for 90 days and I can tell you from personal experience that you can do it in your "spare time" (ha ha). The time to dedicate to this program is 2 hours a week. In addition to that, you’ll have 2 LIVE sessions with me every month, in addition to guest expert calls and support from our Certified OBM ® Momentum Community. See the Course Schedule in the next point.


Q - When are the live sessions with Sarah?

Our LIVE Call Schedule:

WELCOME CALL: 1st Tuesday of each month at 10am ET (New York) / 7am PT (Los Angeles)
LIVE COACHING CALL: 2nd Tuesday of each month at 10:30am ET (New York) / 7am PT (Los Angeles)
LIVE COACHING CALL: 4th Tuesday of each month at 10:30am ET (New York) / 7am PT (Los Angeles)

All the sessions will be recorded and made available, so if you can’t attend LIVE, you can catch the replay.


Q - What if I can't attend all the sessions?

All the sessions will be recorded and available in the private Facebook Group, so if you can’t attend LIVE, it’s no biggie. But I would recommend to block out time in your schedule to attend at least some of the live sessions. That way, you’ll be able to ask questions and get an immediate answer to your own personal concerns or difficulties.


Q - What is OBM Certification Week all about?

Certification Exam Week happens quarterly every October, January, April, and July. You will be eligible to participate in Certification Week once you’ve completed this 90 day program. The cost of participating in exam week is covered in your enrollment fee for the program. Hooray!


Q - Is there a payment plan?

I want to make this as easy for you as I can, so I’ve fixed it for you to pay in six installments of $750. 

Don’t forget that this investment in yourself is going to quickly reap rewards you never dared to dream of.

You’ll be able to increase your rates for existing clients as you take on management tasks and help scale their businesses. And new clients who hire you as a Certified OBM® will pay you double or triple your VA rates as you take the struggle out of their business and become an invaluable member of their team.


Q - Do you offer refunds?

Afraid not. We have a very clear no refund policy because we only work with students who are ALL IN! We put an extraordinary amount of time and effort into this program, and expect you to do the same!
