Expert Overview

Do you remember why you started your business? And does that still match your sense of how you are doing business today? If not, read on! You've been struggling for some time with a lack of time, low energy levels and you're only half keeping all the balls in the air, both business and personal. You feel like the bottleneck in your own business and need help to change this.

How wonderful would it be to have more time to focus on developing and detailing growth plans for your business? That new (online) product or service you'd like to launch, but you don't know how, you lack the time or you don't have the right people on your team. Want to spend more time with your family or other loved ones, without feeling guilty about that huge to-do list? Working less and still getting the same or better results is what you want!

As a certified Online Business Manager, I help you take those steps necessary to grow to the next level. You don't have to do it alone.

I am happy to help you with the following:

- An ops review where we review your business to identify bottlenecks. We do this by doing a comprehensive review and based on the information given I make recommendations how to solve the bottlenecks. If you need assistance with implementation, I can help you with that as well.
- Hiring, onboarding and managing the right people in the right place on your team.
- Setting up and managing the (online) launch of your service or product, from A to Z. I do this using a launch plan and detailed planning with the tasks to be performed (by your team).
- Create a yearly plan and based on that a 90-day plan to determine which projects need to be focused on per quarter to reach the set (yearly) goals. This helps to keep you focused and on track.

I started as an entrepreneur in 2018 after 20 years of working as an executive secretary at a number of corporates. I started my own business as an Online Personal Assistant and have continued to develop as an online business manager at various clients in recent years. To stand even more firmly in my shoes and be a well-qualified OBM, I took the training.

Who do you deal with when you engage with me? My name is Carina (1978) and I live in the Netherlands. I am married to Ruben and together we are parents of daughter Anique and son Melle. We also have a lovely dog and a cat! In my free time I like to be outside (together with our dog) and I do crossfit a few times a week. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and I also volunteer on the board at my children's soccer club. I enjoy drinking cappuccinos and love sweets such as cake and chocolate (but unfortunately not too much).

In short, if you're looking for an energetic online business manager who is driven to take your business to the next level, I'm all over it! Let's work together and take the next step in your business.

My preference is to work with Dutch-speaking online entrepreneurs.
