Attention overworked and underpaid Virtual Assistants and 9-5 corporate hustlers:
If you’re a Virtual Assistant who's working way too many hours for not enough money...
...or a business professional who's ready to make the shift out of a 9-5 to the online world
...make your "side biz" your main thing and live life on your own terms...
...or you're just getting started in the online space and want a proven blueprint for success...
You know it’s time to get serious about this “work from home/online business” thing.
You’ve probably imagined what would happen if you could consistently make the money you want by doing a job you love (sometimes in your PJs if that’s your jam!).
Maybe you’re a Virtual Assistant right now who’s working eleventy-hundred hours and charging $25/hour and it’s just not enough...
Maybe you’re aiming to replace your 9-5 salary before you make the leap but you’re not sure how to make the math work…
Or maybe you’re really interested in starting a solo business, but you’ve only ever worked for a corporate employer and you aren’t sure how to start out getting experience with ‘virtual’ work.
If any of this sounds like you...then you’re like so many of the Virtual Assistants and Online Business Managers that I work with.
You likely have a vision of what you want, but you’re missing the one key element that I’ve seen make or break your success...
There’s a reason I call it “Confident OBM”
Confidence. When you’ve got it, the world is your oyster.
You can charge the prices you want without blinking.
You can choose the clients you want to work with.
You can make your own schedule, knowing that you’ll never lack for work because your clients LOVE you.
But here’s the tricky thing about confidence….you can’t really just “fake it until you make it” like all the gurus say you can.
Clients want results. And if you’re just starting to make that transition from VA to OBM (or from day job to OBM)...
You might not have the confidence that you can get them the results they want.
THIS is what stops so many potentially awesome OBMs from making the leap.
I see it time and time again…
Women who are desperate to QUIT their jobs but are worried about their financial security…
Women who are giving SO MUCH to their clients but aren’t making what they need to be…
And women who want to get started and quickly build momentum in the online space without having to reinvent the wheel.
I've been there!
When I first started out, hustling in corporate was my reality. But by the time I had my first baby on the way, I realised this was totally unsustainable as part of the vision I had for the future of my growing family.
I was overworked. I was overtired. And I was totally OVER IT!
After discovering the potential in online business, I started up my side-hustle as a Virtual Assistant. I was a do-er, a yes woman and I was going above and beyond for my clients. But that was the problem...
I didn’t realise my worth. I was working 24/7 alongside my corporate job. And I didn’t have the confidence to grow into a bigger role or negotiate with my clients for the retainer fees that I deserved. I knew I needed to break out of corporate once and for all and turn my side-hustle into a full-time biz. But I kept asking myself - “Where the hell do I start?!”
That’s when I realized - I was already working a bigger role! And that role was being an Online Business Manager. I just needed to figure out how to be assertive enough to OWN IT (and take my business seriously enough to make growing it a priority).
Becoming a successful OBM is just one of my achievements. Over the last decade I've also:
✓ Grown my own Online Business Management agency (with a team of Confident OBMs)
✓ Scaled a multi-6 figure business
✓ Been hand-selected by the International Association of Online Business Managers to become a Certified OBM® Trainer (my true calling!).
And I achieved all that whilst maintaining the freedom to live life by my own design.
So I know what it’s like when you don’t have the confidence YET to land those high-paying OBM clients with big teams and 7-figure incomes.
That doesn’t mean you won’t get there...it just means you need to get some reps in first.
And looking back on my own journey, I realized something important.
Not just important...this revelation had the potential to change the future for so many VAs and aspiring OBMs out there.
The secret sauce?
Choosing the RIGHT type of client for the stage you’re in right now.
These clients might think of you like a vendor at a flea market. They’ll negotiate your prices left, right and center.
Typically, they’re solopreneurs or own small start-up businesses. Their budget is small and they’ll likely try to squeeze every dime they spend for what it’s worth.
You might have to spend time navigating difficult discussions on how these biz owners can’t have their whole list of ‘must-haves’ within their already stretched budget.
You risk positioning yourself WAY below your worth. You may end up wasting valuable time working too much in proportion to what you’re being paid. Or you risk compromising the quality of your work by condensing your tasks into smaller time frames just so you can earn what you need to.
On the other hand, these bigwigs have enough cash to do EVERYTHING they want (including pay YOU).
As a result, they don’t spend much time going into the smaller details of their biz. They’re too busy taking vacations in Fiji, networking across the globe and landing new million-dollar contracts every day.
These guys are wise, confident, and have TONS of experience navigating the biz world. They need someone who is ready to take full control of their business, its daily operations, and their team.
They’re busy thinking about the bigger picture. That’s why they need a strong leader who’s gonna deliver world-class results and provide proven strategies for growth.
They will need someone with tons of experience and a track record of proven results as an OBM. They will need YOU... just not yet.
Type #3 is the GOLDILOCKS sweet spot for anyone who’s getting started as an OBM.
I call them “Stepping Stone Clients.”
Stepping stone clients usually don’t have a big team yet.
They’ve been wearing all the hats in their business so far but they know their time is better spent on higher leverage things…
And they’ve usually hit a revenue ceiling because they’re so busy doing everything themselves...
For these clients?
You can be their Savior.
Stepping Stone Clients won't demand your blood, sweat and tears from Day 1.
These are the clients who are going to grow WITH you.
Because that’s what they really need.
Someone who can grow with them… Someone who can do some of the everyday VA tasks... But ALSO someone who can think about the bigger strategic picture of their business.
And the best part? There are SO MANY of these Stepping Stone Clients out there...just waiting for someone like you to come along and help them grow!
So I’ve decided to launch the program that's going to help you FIND and LAND these amazing Stepping Stone clients... so that you can quickly get momentum in your OBM biz and go ALL IN.
In just 6 short weeks, you’ll be armed with everything you need to confidently kickstart your OBM biz and land your first paying clients, including:

"Before the program I didn't feel comfortable calling myself an OBM. Yes, I have been in a few systems and played around but I was not comfortable with SOPs, how to market my site or social media as an OBM, and more.
After enrolling in the Accelerator program, I doubled my income and am currently making what I made at my full-time job with just 1 OBM client and 2 social media management clients, whilst working even less hours!"
"I doubted my abilities and knowledge as an OBM. Thanks to this training, I am more confident in charging higher prices and I’m confident in my capabilities to serve my client at the highest level of service.
Through this program, I've gained clarity that being an OBM is exactly what I should be doing. Since joining the Accelerator program, I wanted more so now I’ve signed up for the OBM Certification Program®!”
“Moving through the modules has been a helpful process for being thorough in my OBM Biz setup.
The big win? My systems setup has already been paid for with my first client! So has the cost of this program! Now to snag another client! "

Get ready to transform your life and design it in the way you always dreamed of!
The main goal of an OBM is to take over the daily operations of an online business to ‘free up’ the business owner. This means they can concentrate on being a visionary leader. OBMs make sure that the right THINGS get done at the right TIME, by the right PEOPLE in the right WAY. We’re a business owner’s virtual BFF.
You can typically find OBMs hustling across these four areas:
-Project Management – managing a launch, setting up a new online program or membership portal, establishing a website from start to finish, etc.
-Operations Management – making sure there are systems in place for billing, client relationships, workflow, communications, etc.
-Metrics Management – tracking stats so that your client knows exactly what’s working in their business and what isn’t & recommending next steps.
-People Management – outsourcing, managing, and tracking the completion of the day-to-day tasks of your client’s team.
You can read more on this here.
The world has been turned upside down by this current crisis. But now is the time to see it as an OPPORTUNITY and use this valuable “free time” as a BIG motivator to do all the things you’ve been dreaming of. Because even though the world feels like it’s falling apart, investing in your talents and skills is something NOBODY can take away from you.
You can take advantage of the fact that everyone is pretty much forced to stay home - including almost EVERY business owner. Small businesses are at risk right now and this is an incredible opportunity to think differently and show your value to those who are struggling. What they need is someone who can strategize, organize, get things done and help them make the hard choices in their biz. They need YOU to answer the call.
By investing now, you’ll be on track to land your first paying client just one month after you complete the program. Which means you can dive right in, start making money (even in the midst of this craziness) and help rescue these desperate business owners from the deep end ASAP.
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.
Absolutely! There are TONS of businesses out there and each day more people are creating online endeavors, growing their companies, and hiring support to help them grow. The role of an Online Business Manager is becoming increasingly valuable to businesses everywhere and you’ll be getting in on a fast-growing online industry as the demand for OBM professionals like you starts to grow at an unprecedented rate.
We’re going to help you land your first paying client within a month of finishing this 8 week program. Everyone is different, so some people will find them quicker than others. But my commitment to you is to help you land that first ‘stepping stone’ client in the first month post-program, so that your investment pays for itself with your first client retainer.
Don’t sweat it! This program will teach you the fundamentals of how to manage new clients, how to negotiate pricing and more.
A key part of the Confident OBM Accelerator is teaching you how to find exactly the right clients for you at the right stage of your independent career. When you’re first starting out, what you need is ‘stepping stone’ clients. But once you’re ready for more, here’s how you can transition your OBM career to the next stage.
The course runs for 6 weeks and you can do it in your “spare time” (ha ha). Ideally you’ll complete each module in just over a week (there’s 6 in total) but you can complete this course at your own pace if you need to take a little longer.
The ultimate goal is to get you that first stepping stone client within a month of finishing the program, so if you complete the program in the recommended 6 week time frame, then you’ll be well on your way to paying off the cost of the course within just one month after that.
Yes. You will get access to the entire program when you enrol.
There are 6 modules spanning across 6 weeks, which is the ideal time frame that we recommend for you to complete the course. We will send you weekly prompts to keep you on track and to give you enough time to focus and really take in what you’re learning, without totally overwhelming you!
The Confident OBM Accelerator is for people who have no previous experience working as an OBM. You might already be a Virtual Assistant or coming straight out of corporate. But the bottom line is - you want to take control of your career. You’re ready to go independent, say BYE to your current hustle and gain the freedom to live life by your own design. Your main problem? Knowing how to get started. The Confident OBM accelerator arms you with the strategies and tools you need to start your own profitable online career and find the exact right clients for you at this initial stage of your journey.
On the other hand, The OBM Certification is for those who want to grow, scale and systematize their OBM Business to generate a consistent monthly income. You might be an OBM who wants to do exactly that or wants to establish yourself as an expert in your field. Or you may be a Virtual Assistant who’s already going above and beyond for your clients and wants to build a business as a Certified OBM®. Sounds like you? Check out more about the program right here.
I want to make this as easy for you as I can, so I’ve given you the option to pay in 4 installments rather than fronting the whole cost in one go.
Don’t forget that this investment in yourself and your career is going to quickly reap rewards you never dared to dream of.
Once I’ve helped you land your first paying client, your first client will cover the FULL cost of this program.
And if you’re a Virtual Assistant, your new clients who hire you as an OBM will pay you even more than your regular VA rates as you take the struggle out of their business and become an invaluable member of their team. Hell yeah!
We offer a 60-day money back guarantee with this program. We have a very clear refund policy which is based upon your input because we believe in the power of this program. That’s why we only give refunds to students who are ALL IN and aren’t getting results.
We put an extraordinary amount of time and effort into this program, and expect you to do the same! So if you aren’t landing paying clients at the end of this course after you’ve put in ALL the work, then that’s on us.
Don’t sell yourself short for another second!
You have a unique skill set and talent that nobody else possesses. And together we’re going to leverage that into creating a profitable business as a Confident OBM.
Let’s do this!
