My background:

My goal as an OBM is to help relieve you of the day to day management of your business, so you can get back to your passion—-what made you start your business in the first place. I am here to take things off your plate and clear your to-do list through strategy, implementation, and operations management. I have over nine years of corporate experience in the advertising, software and technology industries working in partnerships, operations, and people management and I will bring all of my past experience as a partner in your business to ultimately help you scale and grow.

  • Flawless Execution
  • Optimistic
  • Detail Oriented
  • Extremely Responsive

 

What Makes Me Different

I have almost ten years of experience working in the corporate world and have brought all of that to my OBM business.  I have managed teams of 10+ people, working with Fortune 100 companies and startups.  I have built and managed an operations team and helped build strategic partnerships in the software space.  I truly do want to know the ins and outs of your business to help you achieve your goals and my desire to be a true partner in your business will be evident once we start working together!

What Clients Say:

“Carolyn joined our team right before I went on maternity leave, and hiring her has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my business. Not only did she keep things running while I was out, but also made sure projects continued to move forward from hiring new team members to mapping out our marketing strategy to document all of our internal processes. Additionally, Carolyn is extremely proactive in making recommendations and pointing out opportunities for improvement. Not only does she help you as a business owner get out to the weeds, but she also makes sure you stay on track to reach your goals. Any business would be lucky to have her on their team, and I am very grateful she is a part of ours!”

“Carolyn takes what is in my brain and makes a system out of it. Where I see (and feel) chaos, she sees opportunities for organization — and executed flawlessly. Working with Carolyn, I legitimately feel fully taken care of, understood and optimistic that no task or ask is too much and nothing I want to do is too complicated. Her attention to detail, creativity and responsiveness is superb. [Clearly] I can’t say enough positive things about working with her."
