Are you ready to step-it-up and play a bigger game with your clients?
Online businesses are growing at an alarming rate, and many online business owners find themselves ‘tapped out’. They simply can’t do it all themselves anymore and are desperately seeking someone to help them grow and manage their business - they are looking to hire an Online Business Manager (OBM).
Read inside to discover:
- What clients are asking for and why they want to hire an OBM
- If you are a potential OBM (take the Online Business Manager Aptitude and Attitude Assessment)
- The 2 key OBM characteristics that will make you stand out from the crowd!
- How you will serve your clients as an OBM (roles and responsibilities)
- How to work for fewer clients and still make an excellent income (escape the time for money trap!)
- The good, the bad and the (not so) ugly - real life as an OBM
- How to know if a business owner is ready to work with an OBM (not everyone is ready, even if they think they are)
- The best way to get started with new OBM clients
"I read Online Business Manager and immediately felt like Carrie from Sex and the City staring at a new pair of Manolo Blahniks. As a business owner, I now know I must have an OBM (Tina, are you free?). And as someone who advises aspiring entrepreneurs, I now have a clear, informative guide for a self-employment option that is miles ahead of the typical role of virtual assistant."
- Pamela Slim, Escape from Cubicle Nation
"Most business management books are written for the "big guys" - companies that operate with millions of dollars in revenue and a large staff. Tina Forsyth's "Becoming an Online Business Manager" is the first book I've ever found that focuses on helping small companies and solo entrepreneurs understand the dynamics of running a successful operation. Evolving from a one-person business to a profitable scalable entreprise - that's what I am most excited about when I read Tina's book!"
- Milana Leshinsky, "Coaching Millions"
"For a VA looking to kick it up a notch, this is an awesome book. In addition to practical advice and numerous examples, Tina shares the mindset and attitude necessary to be a dynamite OBM. And online business owners can benefit from a better understanding of the kind of assistance they really need to grow their own businesses!"
Terri Zwierzynski, www.Solo-E.com
"Relentless practical and productive, Tina is the original online business bad-ass and the secret weapon of everyone I know. If you are a virtual assistant you must read this book. If you have a virtual assistant, send them a copy now. Get to it!"
- Andy Wibbels, author of Blogwild! A Guide for Small Business Blogging
Psssst... online business owners, there is something in this book for you too!
Although written to the aspiring Online Business Manager, this book is also a very handy guide for the online business owner interested in hiring at this level. As a few business owners have shared:
"Becoming an Online Business Manager is a 'must read' book not only for the virtual assistant who seeks to offer more value to her clients, but also for the six and seven figure entrepreneur. I have been telling all my clients about this book so they can better understand who they should hire and how to communicate with them about what they are looking for. I am so glad you wrote this book, the web needs it!"
- Sheri McConnell, President and Founder of the International Association of Web Entrepreneurs www.aweconnect.com
“After cycling through more virtual assistants than I’d like to admit, I was completely frustrated with the whole industry. And then this blessed little book ended up in my hands, and not by accident, I’m sure. What I learned was that yes, I did need and want virtual assistants to help me run my business (I knew I couldn’t do it without them, but the how to do it effectively had eluded me), but what I ALSO needed was an OBM. When that realization struck, a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. My VAs were doing a fine job – it was ME who was unhappy managing them. The solution? An OBM! I’m indebted to you, Tina – thank you for writing this book so I can go back to enjoying my business again!”
- Alicia M Forest, MBA
"The next generation of info product and other Net business simply demands an online business manager -- something I discovered when I, myself, was frantically trying to keep all the balls in the air on my own business. Tina Forsyth is simply the go-to person for this kind of information -- and her excellent insights are bundled together here in a book that will build your business ... effortlessly. I love what she's created!"

I fell asleep reading your book!
"Now normally, that's an insult but its not! Your OBM book didn't put me to sleep... I was just getting so much out of it that I didn't want to stop reading it so I kept reading until I just couldn't stay awake any longer. Usually when I'm reading a book, I put it away and get ready for bed. Yours? Couldn't do it. Must. keep. reading. LOL
Thanks so much for helping women like me take being a VA to the next level. I'm glad I came across your book and your site so early in my business. I've been a VA for 6 months but in my "corporate life" I worked as a supervisor and a manager so even though starting my own business was an improvement, a VA business just felt like it was missing something. When I found my VA clients asking me for advice on what else they could be doing to expand their business and increase their income, I realized that those were the skills I needed to be sharing with them. Going from VA to OBM not only benefits me, it benefits my clients too.
I just wanted to say thanks, Tina. And I'm looking forward to the certification program."
- April Jones, www.AdvantageOnlineSolutions.com
"I finished your book yesterday morning. Right after I had the most productive two hours I have had in years. I finalized the new business plans I have been working on over the past few weeks, reached out to an existing client to urge her to finalize her training program, purchased two new domains and reached out to two strangers regarding relationship building for one of the domains. I am so excited about all of this and just wanted to thank you for opening up a few new thought processes within!"
- Lori Benns, www.ThePillarGroup.ca
"I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your book! It arrived yesterday, and I was so looking forward to getting it. It's brilliant - I love it! After only reading the first few chapters it has brought me much more clarity and focus. I know when we spoke a couple of months back I said I'd been promoting myself as an OBM for some time, but your book is really helping me to hone in on that."
- Tracey Lawton, www.OfficeOrganizationSuccess.com
“I am really enjoying the book. As well as look forward to your upcoming call in December and then your certification program next year. Your book has been very eye opening and very helpful in regards to me changing my VA mindset and becoming more proactive in what it is I do for my clients. I feel like your book was written for me. I already do so many of the things you listed in the book and I look forward to learning more about how to manage a team and outsourcing.
Thank you for writing such a great book.”
- Shannon Kuykendall, www.AtYourRequest-VA.com
"This book is an essential for any Virtual Assistant who is looking to build a 'partner' style relationship with just a few great clients. Having worked with top leaders in the online word, Tina's expertise and understanding of what makes a great Online Business Manager is evident. What I like best about this book is Tina's style and step-by-step details, as well as the numerous stories and examples of other top VAs around the globe. Thank goodness Tina kicked my butt in the OBM direction 3 years ago by sharing the exact steps outlined in her book. I had no idea I could build my business while working this way with my clients."
