If you are an established business coach or life coach wanting to be freed from the administrative headaches that come with running your business, you are in the right place!
I’m Carol D’Annunzio and for over 20 years I have had the pleasure of offering top-notch administrative and back-end support to solo-business owners such as yourself.
With my help, you can finally be rid of the overwhelm of trying to do everything on your own (or with very little help). You can be freed from the administrative headaches that are sucking up your time, you can run your business more efficiently, improve your relationships with current and potential clients, improve your profitability, and you can make more informed business decisions. And to top it off, you can finally gain a greater work and life balance.
That sounds pretty wonderful, right?
Believe me, it’s possible!
The Online Business Manager (OBM)
As an Online Business Manger, I climb into your business with you. I help you with back-end and administrative support in a long-term partnership, and I help you develop systems and put processes in place that allow you to automate you business as much as possible and to run your business more efficiently.
Through my support, you will have access to all of my experience, skills, expertise, brain trust, connections and resources which will allow you to focus on building an even more successful, fulfilling business.
Therefore, it is important that you understand that the Online Business Manager / client relationship is based on a long-term, collaborative business model. Although I have a few “Done For You Services” available for established client, I do not do project work or one-off jobs.
Let’s get real here, setting up systems and putting processes in place don’t happen in a day. Nor is it possible for you to get lasting results by focusing on the minutiae. One headache may go away but one-off projects won’t fix the underlying issues that are bottlenecking your business and causing you stress and overwhelm. The headaches will just keep coming back.
Thus, If we choose to partner together, I will do an audit of your business, your systems and your processes. Then, I will suggest a course of action. Once the plan is finalized, it’s time for action! I will start managing your team, putting systems and processes in place, and get your business running effectively and efficiently. Before you know it, you will feel lighter and less stress, you will be working more efficiently and focused, and you will have more time to create revenue generating programs and products. The constant “migraines” and headaches will go away. It’s that simple. 🙂
How I Help You
Honestly, how I can help you is only limited by our imagination. Every person and business is unique and so what I do for clients is tailored to their specific needs.
Part of my genius is looking at the big picture and then breaking it down into a bite-sized, manageable plan and then being able find the resources to help you implement that plan. Thus, you get the best of both worlds: you get an adviser/strategist and an implementer, all in one.
Having said that, here is a brief list of some of the things I can get done for you: Be a sounding board and idea generator; internet/off-line research; manage vendors, other team members and your publicity; automate business practices using programs such as Post Planner, Zapier, etc; email & calendar management; reputation management; social media management; website maintenance and management; relationship management (with clients, vendors, etc.); word processing and correspondence; recommend and develop additional revenue streams; marketing and launch support; and more!
Actually, there is so much more. This list doesn’t come close to exhausting the possibilities of what can be done by partnering together.
Yes, there are things that I can’t / don’t do and when those cases arise, I will be forthright and honest about it. However, be assured, I will help you find the right person / people to get the job done. I will never leave you hanging or stuck.
The Ideal Client
As nice as it would be, I can’t work with everyone; therefore, here is a snapshot of my target market and ideal client:
I work with established business coaches and life coaches who make $5K to $10K monthly and are ready to move their businesses forward with my help. They are straight-forward, flexible, decisive, and able to communicate well. They are able to delegate without having to micromanage everything and know that I have their best interests at heart. Finally, they understand that “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and are willing to work in a long-term collaborate relationship that will lead to lasting, permanent results.
One more thing, the virtual nature of the online business manager and client relationship doesn’t lend itself well to emergencies. I will not always be immediately available, and although it is natural that emergencies happen occasionally, the relationship will not work well if there are constant emergencies or fires to put out. Thus, my ideal client understands this, takes responsibility for herself and her business, and allows me to help her create a business that runs as smoothly, efficiently, and automated as possible.
If all this resonates with you, I invite you to have a conversation with me. During our call, we can get to know each other to see if we would be a good fit and to decide if working together would make sense.
To get on the call with me, fill out this questionnaire in full, and then I can get you on the calendar. I look forward to seeing how I can support you and your business!
