Testimonials from OBMs
Before becoming a Certified OBM, I questioned so much about myself such as my skills, my methods, my rates and if I was doing it "right".
I knew I was more than a VA, and I didn't want to be the implementer anymore, yet I wasn't positive I could fully be and work at the OBM level. I also didn't want to do anything that would consume every aspect of my life again, I wanted to be with my family a lot more. I had been missing out on so much at home as I struggled to find and keep up with work at my low VA rate.
Since becoming a Certified OBM, I've gained so much confidence in what I bring to my clients, I continue to grow my leadership skills, and my business, as well as my clients' businesses have soared! Having the certification has also helped with my credibility because people know the level of training Certified OBMs receive is top notch! More importantly, I'm home every day with my family, I attend my kids' activities and school events, and I feel like my business has been built around my life instead of the other way around!
Before certification, I was a struggling VA billing by the hour. My monthly invoices averaged $250 per client.
After certification, my monthly retainers now average in the multiple $1000's every month. Certification helped me discover my passion and gave me the confidence to charge what I'm worth."
