Working as an OBM offers the opportunity to make significantly more money than you would in a traditional VA or online support role. Getting out of the mindset of being paid money in exchange for time and shifting to an incentive-based pay system literally blows the roof off of any income limitations.
By way of example, with one of my clients I was working on average about 25 hours a month (some months less, some months a bit more). She offered a series of 6-month coaching programs which became very popular in her niche market. As a result, I was making anywhere from $2,000-$5,000 a month as part of my incentive plan. That works out to be over $100 per hour for the 25-ish hours I was working in a month – well worth my effort, yes? Imagine having two or three clients that you work with at this level – that could be a very lucrative living for working part-time from the comfort of home.
Of course this didn’t happen overnight; we had worked together for a couple of years before her business reached this level of income. Just know that it is absolutely possible when you work with the right client.
