Calling all online-based biz owners – this one is for you! Hosting an Open House Call on Wednesday April 1, 2009 with the always lovely and wickedly smart Andrea J. Lee.
Take just a moment and imagine…the corporate world without managers. Jokes aside for a sec, now ask…where are the equivalent managers in the online business world?
As online businesses grow, especially to the now-famous Quarter Million Dollar Speed Bump, it quickly becomes mission critical to get a certain kind of help. Not the administrative kind but the strategic kind. The Virtual Assistant on steroids (not literally, okay?) is what Andrea and I have dubbed the Online Business Manager, and the demand for OBMs is nothing short of extraordinary. When the right OBM joins a business, the results are too.
Join this call to learn the 5 key reasons you may benefit from having an OBM, how to know when you’re ready to hire and the things you can expect an OBM will do. Even if you’re not quite ready to hire, and you anticipate filling the role for yourself for now, join the call to get much more strategic about it.
Online Business Managers and aspiring OBMs are welcome to join too – there won’t be an OBM-related conversation that’s more client-centric than this. We’ll also give a brief intro to the Association of OBMs where clients and OBMs can meet, and the release of the world’s first OBM certification.
