When you started your business, you dreamed of helping people needing you expertise to solve their problems. You wanted to work with clients, create products and services, hold live events and teleseminars, and get your message out to the world. Looking back now, are you spending more of your time on that or managing the back end of your business?
Even if you delegate some tasks to your Virtual Assistant, you may still be managing more than doing. If managing your business has taken over your day, it may be time to hire an Online Business Manager. What is an Online Business Manager? An Online Business Manager (OBM ) is a person who manages everything on the back side of the business including VAs, web designers and any other contractors you may be working with. They manage all the projects and tasks required to run a business.
Together you and your OBM plan out your goals and intentions for the week, month, quarter, etc. Then you map out the steps that need to happen to achieve each goal. Deadlines are set and everything is mapped out on your schedule. Then, the OBM takes over and makes sure everything is happening according to plans. They update you as things progress and make sure you are aware of any problems that may come up. They manage the people working on each aspect of each project including the parts you play in it. They keep you on task and focused on what you need to do and handle all the other tasks or people involved in making things happen for you.
An OBM makes sure everything on the back end of your business is running smoothly and kept up to date. If you are ready to get back to doing what you love rather than being a manager, talk to an Online Business Manager today. It can bring a whole new perspective to you and your business. You will have more time for working on the business to generate more income and free time for you to spend on self-care, family, friends and even a vacation or two.© Copyright 2011 Sophie Zollmann
