THE podcast show for ambitious Virtual Assistants who are ready to give themselves a promotion

    25 - How much money can you earn as an OBM?

    25 - How much money can you earn as an OBM?

    Let’s talk money. 
    I know us Brits aren’t so great about talking money but we all need it to build the lives we want. 
    When we charge by the hour our earning potential will ALWAYS be capped to how many hours we can work in a day. 
    But it doesn’t need to be like this. 
    Smart Online Business Managers build in pricing that builds a business. 
    Where their earnings aren’t capped by 24 hours in the day. 
    Curious about how much an OBM can really earn? Listen to the podcast or read the show notes here.

    24 - Coach, Mentor, Trainer. Is there even a difference?

    24 - Coach, Mentor, Trainer. Is there even a difference?

    I would normally start by simply saying, "I hope you're staying safe and well"... but lockdown 3.0 her in England means a slightly diff intro.
    BUT in the main part of the show, I ask: do you know what a coach does? 
    And what they don’t? 
    Coaches will ask you intelligent, probing questions to help you figure out the best course of action. 
    They won’t necessarily give you the road map to get there (or even the answer) but you can get masses of value from their expertise.

    More-than-a-VA: An Interview With Sarah-Jane Heath

    More-than-a-VA: An Interview With Sarah-Jane Heath

    It’s sooooo important to surround yourself with the right business peeps to inspire and build you up.
    And to help, I’ve been chatting to some awesome More-Than-VAs to share their journeys from VA and beyond with you.
    What can we learn from Take That?! Say hello to my business Sarah-Jane Heath.
    On this bonus podcast, SJ explains how she’s gone from VA to a More-Than-VA and then some. 



    Going from her work on Take That’s management team (no juicy gossip tho’) and then using those skills to build her own business. ⁠

    ⁠SJ is a total inspiration and if there's one thing you do today, you should TOTALLY listen in.⁠

    Make sure you connect with SJ here.
    Note: the audio dips out around a third of the way through. Don't worry though, it soon returns and the chatter continues.

    More-than-a-VA: An Interview With Sarah Tilley

    More-than-a-VA: An Interview With Sarah Tilley

    It’s sooooo important to surround yourself with the right business peeps to inspire and build you up.
    And to help, I’ve been chatting to some awesome More-Than-VAs to share their journeys from VA and beyond with you.
    This is the third More-Than-A-VA chat and I’d love to know what you think so far. Have you been enjoying them? And have you found them inspirational? Use the comments below to share your thoughts.
    Show notes Today, I’m sharing my conversation with Sarah Tilley.
    Sarah was one of the first people on my 8-Weeks to OBM course that I ran this year. And I know you’re totally going to relate to her story. Especially juggling the homeschool and work during lockdown this year. 
    Sarah started her VA business alongside her full-time job. While on maternity leave, Sarah realised she needed more flexibility from her career and delighted her VA clients by telling them that she’d be focussing on her business full-time.
    In our chat, Sarah talks about how she dreamed of becoming a PA, and how a newspaper supplement helped shape her career.
    Sarah always knew she was way more-than-a-VA, and fully transitioned into the Online Business Manager role in 2020.
    Sarah on being an OBM:
    “An Online Business Manager gets to know your business, suggests improvements and finds people to do stuff. If I have a client and he’s overwhelmed – do you want me to find somebody to program that Excel sheet we need or try to do it myself? An Online Business Manager finds experts and they’re more proactive.”
    If you want to build a business that’s more than simply working on other people’s businesses, then you need this episode.

Hidden Gem!

I love these bite-sized episodes. They are short, and straightforward but still packed with valuable information. Victoria is confident, encouraging, and she knows her stuff! So glad I stumbled across this as I start exploring OBM life.
