Expert Overview

Hey, I’m Cheryl McDonald. As an OBM, I work with coaches, consultants, and entrepreneurs to scale and grow their businesses with intention.

Chance are, if you’ve found me here in the Online Business Manager directory, you’re looking for help within the top areas our clients are struggling with:
✓ Staffing, hiring, or managing your existing team
✓ Systems, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), and Scaling
✓ Finding the ever-elusive time in your business

A bit about me! I’m currently located in Calgary, Alberta, with my husband and two teenagers. I bring with me over 20+ years of corporate experience in the technology space with program/product management, business analysis, strategy, and user experience.

I’m also a well-versed team lead and approach each project with a strategy and business transformation mindset.

In addition to an extensive technology, strategy, and project management background, I'm also a certified life and group coach! And, with a background blended in strategy, technology, and user experience/human factors, I refer to myself as a change catalyst.

In regards to personality assessment and fit, here are a few of my assessments:
✓ Meyers-Briggs: ISFJ-A
