Tina Forsyth, Founder and Creator of the Certified OBM® Training
After starting her coaching business in 2000, Tina Forsyth quickly came to see the need to partner visionaries with high-level support. With her natural ability to bring both strategy and implementation to the table, Tina began working with 6 to 7-figure leaders to help manage and grow their businesses, and thus, the role of the Online Business Manager (OBM) was born.
As the demand for high-level support continued to rise, she shifted her focus from 'being the OBM' to training OBMs and founded the International Association of Online Business Managers in 2008 — the home of the Certified OBM®. In the 12+ years since its inception, the OBM industry has become established as a key role on the team of fast-growing online and virtually based businesses.
In partnership with the Association team and Certified OBM Trainers, Tina continues her work as an advocate for OBM community and educating business owners on the power of hiring an OBM to take their business to the next level.
