Launch Management and setup

We help to build a plan and timeline for each step leading up to (and beyond) the big day. Then we pull all the tech pieces together to ensure your launch runs smoothly.

Systems Creation, Automations & Integrations

We can set up workflows, such as email Welcome sequences to welcome your customers or clients.

Many software platforms have direct connections to each other, but if they don't, we can make them "talk" to one another through Zapier or Make.

Our goal is to make sure you have Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for every repetitive task, so the job gets done - and done right, every time!

Project Management

Stop spending hours managing your tasks and the people (including yourself) working on them. Take back that time so you can concentrate on what only you can do for your business!

We will help organize and stay on top of the to-do list for you! We have worked with several project management tools, such as ClickUp, Asana, Trello, Monday, notion, and more!

Other Client Care Packages

Need other assistance but don’t see it listed here? We’d still love to help!

FAQs

An Online Business Manager is the person that supports a small business owner, by managing activities for their clients.

An OBM can manage:

  • daily operations
  • teams
  • projects
  • launches
  • marketing & metrics


Some take on all of these areas (and more) and some OBMs like to specialize.

Anything you do in your business that isn’t specific to your knowledge (such as designing or creating) can probably be hired out.  Because that frees up the limited time you have to focus on what only you can do!  In other words, you are delegating!

The advantage to hiring an OBM is that you get to specify what tasks are delegated without having to take on the responsibility of a full-time or part-time employee, adding even more administrative tasks to your plate.

A simple definition is that a virtual assistant (VA) is a person who provides support services to other businesses from a remote location.

In a nutshell, an OBM is the person who organizes and manages. A VA is the “do-er”; the person who implements the plan.

However, since the OBM is the one kept responsible for ensuring everything gets done, sometimes these lines are blurred.

I am a computer geek.  That’s the simplest way to describe the industry I was in for 30+ years*.  No, I won’t fix your PC, but I have years of experience in managing websites and other technical (software) tasks, data entry, flowcharting, and I attest to being a spreadsheet fanatic.  My husband will also tell you that I love lists – and lists of lists because I can’t stand not being organized! That is an obsession that is super-helpful in project management!

I constantly look for ways to streamline and automate your repetitive business processes so you (and I) can spend less on the little things that take up the majority of our time and money!

(*If you want the full description, my former job title was Senior Systems Analyst and Project Manager for a Distribution company. Whew!)

I know firsthand how tough it can be to try and run a business and still be a parent!

As a hard-working, self-motivating individual, I will respect your business practices and family time (as I expect you to respect mine). I am an excellent listener, good at written communication and documentation, and adept at resolving issues.

The great news is that help is available right here!

Whether you need me for a one-time task or you are looking for someone on a regular basis, I would love to work to help improve your business!

This is just a sampling of some of the services we offer that could help your business:

Virtual Assistant Services

  • Course implementation, especially in Thinkific. Helping pull all the tech pieces together to launch your course, uploading videos, updating text, etc.
  • Integration and automation. Several of my clients use ThriveCart for product payments and signups. Since there isn’t a direct connection from ThriveCart to Thinkific (yet), we can get your customers automatically signed up for the correct course in Thinkific once they purchase!

Please note that these rates may change at any time.

Short-term projects are  typically billed on a flat-fee schedule, with 50% due up front and the remaining amount due at the end of the project.

Ongoing projects and support will have actual time tracked and reported. After the first month, an invoice will be sent on the 1st of the month.

Our current hourly rate is $65 per hour. We currently don’t ask for a retainer, but there is a required minimum of 10 hours a month. This is to help ensure we can offer the best service by having a small list of clients.

Payments are accepted through Stripe and Paypal. Stripe allows you to pay with a credit card or bank transfer.

I will gladly give you a free quote before any work is done!
