When I talk with potential Online Business Managers, the first thing I want to know from them is “What services do you want to implement on a daily basis” ie: what will make you love your services and love your clients? The answer to this question is imperative when you are building a service based business. Specifically if […]

Is OBM a Specialized Niche?

by Tiffany on June 21, 2016

in For OBMs,Uncategorized

One of the questions I often get when talking with folks is “OBM specialized enough or should you niche further”.  This is a great questions because I don’t think there is an easy yes or no.

As I was thinking about my to do list today I was really moved by how much I love what I do. Granted I am not the typical OBM as I do as much sales, coaching and technical implementation as I do operations at this point in my business journey. BUT even still I know […]

in For OBMs,For VAs

After 6 years and hundreds of conversation with virtual support professionals about the opportunity to become an OBM, I can confidently say I know a thing or two about ‘who’ the OBM is.
