👋 Do you ever find yourself gulping down your third coffee by midday, staring at a screen littered with endless tabs, emails pinging every minute, and sticky notes adding up like confetti? You're juggling meetings, working into the night, and that whiteboard of yours? A tangled web of tasks you can't untangle. "Do I need a VA? An OBM? Ops Manager?" you ponder. Maybe you're not entirely sure who you need, but one thing is for sure... you need some reliable HELP. I understand 💛
Namaste! As a Certified Online Business Manager® I take the guesswork out of what needs to be done and when, who should do it, and in what way it should be done.
I’m a Toronto-based Online Business Manager, systems nerd, to-do list queen, and wearer of many hats. In between runs for venti frappuccinos, I’m in my cozy office nook smoothing out the rough edges of your biz so that you can focus on what drives your passion.
Are you a business coach, consultant or service provider, working with change-maker clients who are transforming the world into a better place?
Exhausted from doing everything, you’re wondering what happened to the excitement you felt when you first launched your venture, knowing that your work was making a real difference in the world.
I understand what it feels like when you get stuck in the busyness of the day-to-day. Feeling trapped so far in the weeds and details, that you’ve started to lose the focus of your vision and no longer view your goals from the big picture perspective. You’re just trying to stay ahead of the most important things (quite frankly all the things) as you tread water.
You need the support of someone you can trust, who “gets” your business and the importance of what you are trying to achieve.
This is where I come in as your Certified Online Business Manager…
My name is Kate and I’ve been supporting small businesses for 20+ years - helping solopreneurs focus on their zone of genius while ensuring the day-to-day is taken care of. My superpower is strategy AND implementation. As a qualified coach I know how to ask all the right questions to help you get clear on direction, and as a Certified Online Business Manager, I turn that into a plan, and with my laser-focus on details, we get things done.
Having worked online since 2003, I grew my initial VA business working exclusively with coaches, consultants, and course providers. After a few years, I added a training arm to my offering, in the form of the “VA Business Start Up Course”, that helped aspiring VAs create their own businesses from scratch.
Strategy meets implementation is my superpower
I’ve found the biggest obstacle in growing your business is Solpreneur thinking “I AM my business” as opposed to CEO thinking “I am the CEO who runs my business”.
This separation makes ALL the difference in the world and allows you to stay in your zone of genius instead of micromanaging all the different parts.
Working with me you will get a gentle nudge to step fully into your role as CEO, knowing that you have a trusted partner in the business and don’t have to take responsibility for everything (even when you have a team!)
What a relief not having to be ALL the things - and think of the energy you’ll get back into the bargain.
Ready to stop getting pulled into the weeds and day-to-day running of your business so you can fully step into the CEO visionary role? I partner with online business owners and service professionals who want support in strategizing their BIG dreams, filtering their ideas, providing experience-based direction, and developing and managing a team to reach their desired objectives.
Being a CEO/ Founder/ Entrepreneur can be lonely at times when you run an online business.
As an entrepreneur, you are passionate about your business but perhaps not so passionate about the parts that make it run efficiently. That’s where I come in. As a Certified Online Business Manager, I can create the foundation to take your business to the next level. Together we will clarify your goals and how to achieve them through assessment, planning, and implementation. Giving you more time to do what you love to do: create
Your wisdom is in your craft, let me manage the rest.
Are you ready to SCALE your business with more CLARITY? I can help you get to the root of what's not working by using data to guide the next steps.
Here are the first areas I focus on:
1) Build a roadmap of goals for each year and quarter
2) Analyze your systems to see where bottlenecks are happening
3) Use data to see how your business is performing
4) Manage projects and launches
5) Build a unified team
I know we’ll be a great match if:
✅ you have an online business that helps others
✅ you have a background in or currently work in education
✅ you are an online teacher, coach or mentor
✅ you are ready to hand off project and team leadership to someone else
My experience includes over 10 years as an educator in ESL and Secondary English Teaching, and 3 years as a VA and Curriculum Manager for educators with online businesses, specifically TeachersPayTeachers (TpT) sellers. I love working with project management tools such as Asana and Trello, and platforms such as Kajabi. I will 🤓 nerd out over creating SOPs and setting up the tasks that need to be done for launches.
How does that help you?
Even if you’re not in the education field, we might be a great fit! I have a lot of experience managing multiple projects and people at once. If I can round up a classroom full of middle schoolers, I can definitely help manage your team and projects!
Bring CLARITY back into your online business!
💙 I currently have only one retainer opening available. 💙
