Certified Online Business Manager

If you’re a Virtual Assistant looking to step up your game and charge more…
An Online Business Manager who wants to attract high-end clients…
Or an experienced corporate administrator or project manager
looking to work from home and get paid well…

I think you’re really gonna love this.

The Simple Way to OBM Success

A decade ago I was straddling a demanding corporate JOB with a Virtual Assistant side hustle. I was working hard to keep my VA clients happy, round the clock, getting paid by the hour, taking on more and more responsibilities.
Like strategy, launch support, implementing systems, and team building.

I didn’t know it at that time, but what I was actually doing was the job of an ONLINE BUSINESS MANAGER, while calling myself a virtual assistant and charging the rates of a virtual assistant. And at that rate, I knew I wasn't making enough to say goodbye to my corporate 9-5.

But I did know that there was an opportunity here.

I could see my clients were hungry for someone to take over the day-to-day operations, team, metrics, launch and project management. And I knew that if I could trade up my VA skills and leverage my knowledge of their business, I could strut my stuff—and charge more for doing so.

Turns out I was right. Within a year, I doubled, then tripled my rates, from $35 an hour to $100 or more when I became a Certified OBM® in 2012. My business boomed and because I was taking the weight off my clients and freeing them up to do what they wanted to do, they were happy to pay.

And it turns out that Certified OBMs are coming to the rescue of overwhelmed business owners everywhere! And demand for this role within the online business community is booming.

Because with internet sales reaching $2,489 trillion a year, every business that wants to scale and stay in the game needs an online presence and the right business support.

Business owners are struggling. They’re struggling with their website, an E-commerce store, a social media presence, blogs, email marketing, team and project management and much more.

They simply can’t do it all themselves, and are desperately seeking someone to help them manage the overwhelm.  

That could be YOU!

Once I discovered how in-demand OBMs are becoming, I knew that it was time to step it up. And the best way to achieve the tools, the confidence, and the credibility to claim that role was to learn from the experts. 

I turned to the “International Association of OBMs,” which has been training and matchmaking online business managers with high-end, well-paying clients since 2009.  

I knew that getting qualified in their “Certified OBM” course would upgrade my skills and help establish my OBM status to clients, so they’d be willing to pay me the TRUE VALUE of my contribution to their business.  

And I was right.

When you get Certified with me you’ll:

Increase your Earning Potential by working on a monthly retainer or incentive-based payment structures. I’ll show you how to ditch the limiting $ per hour system that keeps you spinning on that hamster wheel.

Enjoy Longer Term Client Relationships as you become integral to your clients' business. That means less time marketing yourself and looking for new clients!

Work with Your Ideal Clients by choosing a small group (usually no more than 3), who pay you well and can’t live without you! Less is more!

Co-create with your Clients as you get deeper into strategy and find yourself creating new programs or products with your clients.

Find New Clients by Word of Mouth, because when you help create success, word gets around very quickly, and you’ll soon be flooded with work—and I'll show you how you can scale your offerings.

Establish Yourself as an Expert because becoming a Certified OBM® will position you confidently above the competition.


And This Will Make All The Difference

When you take part in this training with me, you’ll get exclusive access to my signature program: Team Growth Formula (VALUE $997)!

Because when you become a Certified OBM® you're going to have clients knocking down your door… and there’s no way that you’re going to say “no” when they show you the money.

So when you’re maxed out with work, my Team Growth Formula will teach you how to bring a TEAM onboard that can take the weight off, so you're not doing everything yourself.

I’ll teach you how to hire and train your team, so you can pivot from solopreneur to delegator-in-chief while your business thrives and your clients get VIP service.
