You may be ready invite an online business manager (OBM) into your world if…
You are WAY busier than you want to be.
If you’re working longer hours and taking less vacation as a business owner than you ever did working for someone else it may be time to let an online business manager carry part of the load. A good OBM is focused on taking things off your plate and managing the details that eat up your time and add to your to do list. There will always be things in your business that only you can and should do, but why not free yourself from the many tasks that don’t require your specific expertise.
Things are slipping through the cracks.
There comes a point in every business where one person can no longer do it all – at least not well.
If you’re still trying to manage every aspect of your business from content creation to customer service there’s a good chance something’s getting missed. Don’t wait for a crisis sized mistake that’s difficult to recover from to occur. Imagine the sigh of relief you could breathe knowing someone else was looking after critical elements of the business on your behalf.
You’ve hit a revenue plateau.
If you’re like most entrepreneurs you’re an idea person. You’ve likely got a long wish list of plans for your business and a stack of ½ finished, almost ready for launch projects waiting for attention you don’t have time to give. Online business managers are all about implementation – our focus is turning your ideas and expertise into REVENUE. If you’re struggling to reach that pivotal ‘next level’ the support of an OBM could take you there.
Opportunity knocked and you couldn’t answer.
There’s no greater feeling for an entrepreneur than to be sought out by others. When you’ve created something people are asking for you know your hard work has paid off.

What would your work day feel like if you could spend your time on the activities you truly enjoy?
