…There are many online professionals who are already doing OBM level work for their clients but don’t realize it, and because of that are selling themselves short in the marketplace and even in the eyes of their current clients. OBMs in disguise usually come to realize that they are doing more than what the virtual assistant or online support role calls for. It’s like the administrative assistant who’s really acting as HR Manager. Or the Executive Assistant who’s slowly taken on duties of the former Vice President,
Operations, only hasn’t received the title or pay raise.
High time to make an adjustment, wouldn’t you say?
There are a lot of folks out there who are already providing OBM-level support, but haven’t formalized that role, and as such, aren’t being compensated properly.In the next section we will be diving into the role of the OBM, and what exactly they do for their clients.
If you find yourself saying, “Hey, that’s what I already do!” then you may be an OBM in disguise. You’ve probably always known that you are “doing a bit more,” but haven’t really been able to articulate it to yourself or your clients. If that is the case, this book will give you a new “shingle” to hang out for your business, so that you can officially take on this role and enjoy the satisfaction and compensation that come alongside.
