Testimonials from OBMs
I considered myself a pretty high level virtual assistant who consistently makes in the six figure range, but I felt I had hit the ceiling on what I could charge my clients and how I could help them. I knew I could do more for my clients but I wasn't sure what that looked like or how I could get away from the "dollars for hours" grind.
My VA practice was in the perfect position to revamp and switch to Online Business Manager mode and I loved the concept of base pay and incentives. The OBM class was amazing--I learned so much from Tina and her fantastic OBM, Tiffany.
Certification week really stretched me but I did it (and passed with flying colors). I know I can do anything and move my practice in any direction that I want to. I have all the tools I need to really accelerate growth in my practice, make a bigger impact for my clients and have fun doing it! I highly recommend the Online Business Manager certification course--it changed my life!"
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!
