Let me ask you, do you have the itch to do something bigger/better/different with your virtual support business in 2010? You know… that annoying feeling that there is something more out there for you but you don’t know what it is?
At this time of year we can’t help but turn our thoughts to what we would like to change next year. Perhaps you are feeling a bit bored or stuck in your business and want to try something new? Or perhaps you are feeling buried and overwhelmed in your business and need to find a way out of the “too many clients not enough time” trap?
As someone said to me just the other day: “I’ve been doing this virtual assistant thing for a while now, it’s time for something new!”
If you are feeling the itch, I invite you to consider becoming an Online Business Manager. Since releasing my book of the same name in Fall 2008 the demand for OBMs has skyrocketed – I hear from business owners every single week who are eager (sometimes desperate) to find someone to fill this role.
And despite having a group of rockstar OBMs who completed training this year (many of whom have full businesses already), I know the demand is going to continue to grow exponentially in 2010. In fact, I’m setting up some key relationships with business partners to ensure that everyone knows what an Online Business Manager is and why they need one. And we need to have our next group of rockstar OBMs ready to serve them. Which is why we are REALLY excited about the next Online Business Manager Training & Certification program in February. Check out the details at www.certifiedobm.com.
Now I know being an Online Business Manager isn’t for everyone – but if you have an inkling that this might be the next step for you, I’d love to chat (and get you a copy of the book if you don’t have it already). Just hit reply to this email and we’ll set up a time to connect.
Regardless of what route you take, I encourage you to really consider what is next for you and your business. How can you play a bigger game with your clients? How can you continue to enjoy your business AND make a great living? I know too many virtual assistants who work too hard for too little – and end up burnt out and frustrated. That simply sucks, and it doesn’t have to be that way.
Let’s talk, and best of the holidays to you! I hope you are taking some well deserved time off to enjoy with family and friends. I’m in charge of dinner this year, wish me luck. 😉
P.S. If you are considering the Online Business Manager Training program be sure to let me know asap, as we have some great early bird discounts still in effect through to the end of December. Just hit reply to this email, look forward to hearing from you!
