Calling all VAs, admins, and digital service providers!
discover what it’s like to enjoy
Work from anywhere, any time that works for you.
Close your eyes for a minute, and imagine…
…having a full roster of your dream clients
…working wherever you have an internet connection
…working whenever works for you
…finally getting paid what you’re worth
…waking up and deciding you’re going to take the day off
If this sounds like the life you want…
If you want to earn more and work less…
If you want to finally get paid what you’re worth…
If you want to have complete time and location freedom…
But it all feels impossible, I’m here to tell you
Not only is this life possible, it’s closer than you think!
But you have to change the way you work.
If you continue on the path you’re on, where will you be one year from today?
- Will you still be working with the same clients who make you want to pull your hair out?
- Will you still be way overworked and vastly underpaid?
- Will you still be missing out on important moments with your family, beating yourself up over how “bad” you are?
If you’re like most online service providers I know, the answer to these questions is, “…probably…”
Your business is holding you back!
Your business is keeping you from earning more and working less.
Your business is keeping you tied to a schedule and a location that’s sucking your soul dry.
And unless you make a change…
a real change…
One year from today you’re going to be in the same exact spot…
Working for the same frustrating clients…
Barely making ends meet…
Except…you know in your heart of hearts…
If you have to live one more year life this…
You might just say, “sod it” and shut your whole business down.
I used to have a roster full of clients I hated. I had no free time. I was tied to my desk and my calendar.
And every single December I told myself, “This is it. I’m done.”
But, determined not to shutter my business, I stuck it out.
And I figured out a way to have everything I want in my business:
- High priced packages that clients are happy to pay.
- 100% location freedom.
- All the time I need to spend with my family.
- Clients I would walk through fire for.
- Peace of mind in knowing I am doing something needed.
If you’ve been slogging through your business, and you’re on the brink of throwing in the towel, I want you to commit — right here, right now — to not give up.
Because it IS possible to have:
- a proven framework for your business so you don’t have to guess any more
- a mentor who has been there before to guide you as you grow
- plenty of time to spend with your family
- predictable income month after month so you’re never wondering how you’re going to make ends meet
- ecstatically delighted clients who can’t wait to refer you out to their colleagues
The secret is to step into your future as an Online Business Manager.
What is an OBM?
An OBM is not a Virtual Assistant or a Project Manager.
An OBM is responsible for managing the direction of the business, providing strategic guidance, and making sure things get done.
OBMs are in demand more than ever as more and more entrepreneurs enter the online business world.
Online Entrepreneurs are almost always really f-ing good at what they do — selling, marketing, having big ideas — and really f-ing bad at managing things.
Those entrepreneurs who thrive and grow year after year all have an Online Business Manager: a trusted adviser behind the scenes who is making sure things get done.
As an OBM you’ll be uniquely positioned to be behind the scenes of some of the coolest up and coming businesses.
You provide support to entrepreneurs who are making big things happen, and you’ll make bank doing it (while working as much or as little as you want)
…if your business is set up the right way…
Is this for me?
Becoming a Strategic OBM™ is for you if…
- You’re a big picture thinker, but also detail oriented.
- You love technology and strategy.
- You love giving advice, and it delights you when it’s implemented.
- You want to work on your own terms from wherever you have an internet connection.
- You want to provide a valuable service and feel rewarded for your expertise.
When you launch your business as a Strategic OBM™, you will use your creativity, your tech skills, and your strategic thinking in order to be of service to entrepreneurs who are making big things happen.
This is not for you if you want to get paid to do nothing, if you have no work ethic, if you’re not detail oriented, and if you hate technology.

but wait, there’s more…
I know it’s not enough to just learn what you need to know. I know it’s helpful to have resources. I’m going to give you all of the files, systems, and documents I use in my own business and with my own clients.
You can take it all and implement in your own business.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Strategic OBM™ Certification Program opens in early 2019.
If you’re interested in saving your spot, or just seeing if you’re a good fit, I invite you to book a free call.
So, how does this work?
The Strategic OBM™ Certification Program is a digital training with pre-recorded videos, workbooks, PDFs, and live coaching calls.
The program begins in February 2019, and is designed to be self-paced.
Every two weeks you will receive a new module. You can take a long as you need to go through the material.
Office hours will be live every month, and you will also be able to text me via Telegram.
Do you have a refund policy?
The pilot program is for $297. If at the end of the program you are unhappy, I will be happy to give you two free coaching calls, for which I usually charge $500 per session.
The premier program, valued at $2,997, does come with a guarantee. I guarantee that if you do the work, and you do not get results, I will give you a refund, or we will continue to work together privately for 1 month.
Do I have to already know tech stuff?
Well, it would help, yes. But, tech is easy to learn. There are so many tutorials online, and you can find anything you need to know if you just know how to look for the information.
So if you don’t already know how to use Asana, Google Docs, or IFTTT, then don’t worry. You can easily learn.
Is this some get rich quick thing?
Nope. Not even a little bit. There’s nothing quick about this.
The Strategic OBM™ Certification Program is different than most of the programs you’re used to seeing because this is designed to give you the framework you need to run your business as well as the skills you need to run your business.
You are only able to get results from this program when you implement, test, and refine. That takes time.
So, you're not saying I'm going to become a millionaire??
Look, I have no idea if you will or not.
If you take my framework and my systems and you implement and you actually do all the work, the odds are really good that you will make a lot of money.
But there are so many variables in your life outside of my control that I can’t make that promise.
And, so long a we’re on the topic, if you ever find a coach or consultant who promises you that you will make a ton of money, run. Because they can’t guarantee it either; they’re just trying to manipulate you into giving you money.
