For VAs

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 […]

Create Space for Grace

Nothing is more destructive to the production of my day then to find out that I or one of my team members has made a mistake that will effect a client. Seriously, I get physically ill with this when it happens. And the reality is, it does happen. No matter how hard I try to […]

Are You an Online Business Manager?

by Tina on February 10, 2016

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. I say ‘WHO’ because in all actuality being an Online Business Manager is much more about how you identify yourself and your […]

I AM CREATIVE

in For OBMs,For VAs,General Biz

If I am being completely honest our team would not consider me the most creative person.  When a ‘creative’ needs to be produced someone else on the team is doing it.  Specifically as it pertains to graphics. My creativity doesn’t flow through pictures or vision.  Even to the point that my husband does most of […]

I AM INSPECTING

in For OBMs,For VAs,General Biz,Uncategorized

One of my husband’s favorite quotes is: You get what you inspect not what you expect! As a leader there is really not a truer statement.. but as an OBM we have to be purposeful to ensure we are inspecting our teams execution and performance. Working with virtual professionals creates a different dynamic as it […]

I AM CONFIDENT

by Tiffany on November 12, 2015

in For OBMs,For VAs,General Biz

Can I just start by saying confidence is not arrogance.  I feel like there is such a negative vibe around being confident.  When you think of confident people do you automatically think of the most arrogant person you know?  Confidence is not what you are doing (or saying) but who you are being. Let me […]

Google says purposeful is:  having or showing determination or resolve. I like it! I have found very few things in my life require me to show determination or resolve at the same level of being an OBM has.  After all, we are the get it done folks.  We start it, maintain it and ensure it […]

I AM INNOVATIVE

by Tiffany on November 10, 2015

in For OBMs,For VAs,General Biz

Online Business Managers do not always think of themselves as the innovators of the business.  After all isn’t it the business owner’s responsibility to come up with the content, programs, ‘next best thing…’ Yes… as it pertains to the ‘what’ of the business, as it pertains to what will be promoted, what will be sold, […]

in For OBMs,For VAs,General Biz

EVERYTHING in the online business world revolves around having a solid planned out strategy.  Of course, we like to say the Online Business Manager is where strategy meets implementation!  So with that in mind, it’s only natural one of the key attributes to being an OBM is strategy. Strategy, as it pertains to the OBM […]
