frequently asked questions

what's the difference between an obm, a pm, and a va?

If you ask ten OBMs, PMs, and VAs this question, you'll get ten different answers. For starters, an OBM is an Online Business Manager, a PM is a Project Manager, and a VA is a virtual assistant.

In general, expect an OBM to be focused on developing action plans and designing/implementing processes to execute those plans (for example, the person developing a data entry system) and a VA to be more involved in the day-to-day work (the person doing the actual data entry).

A PM can fall somewhere in between - organizing the data entry project team, delegating tasks, and handling some tasks themselves. This is how I tend to think of myself.

I really don't care what you call me. I'll answer to anything: online business manager, project manager, systems strategist, integrator, Samantha, Sam (and, once, right after my mom had surgery: "whatsherface"). The most effective approach to getting the help you need is to clearly identify areas and projects where you'd like some help, and find a real person who offers that service.

what do you mean by "on demand"?

Whether you've been in business for 20 minutes or 20 years, you deserve options for professional support that meet you where you are. Maybe you love working solo but the gurus said you can't scale without a team (you can); maybe you'd love a team but you're not realistically there financially (ever notice how everyone who says "you have to spend money to make money!" usually wants you to buy something?)

Not everyone needs (or wants!) a business manager or VA on retainer. That's why I've organized all of my services into three tiers - do it yourself, do it together, and done for you - so you can choose the time vs. money investment that makes the most sense for you and your business.

WHAT *EXACTLY* CAN YOU HELP ME DO?

We can create action plans and develop systems for almost any area of your business: inquiries, proposals, and onboarding; getting paid; client communications; building a task management system; asking for testimonials; scheduling calls and meetings; budgeting and expense tracking; creating a digital filing system; taming your inbox; organizing your passwords; creating and scheduling content; tracking inventory; streamlining your branding; pitching PR opportunities; booking podcast guests... the list goes on!

WHAT ARE SYSTEMS, AND DO I ACTUALLY NEED THEM?

Short answer? Automation + Boundaries = Systems.

Like them or not, you've already got workflows - whether they're consistent, efficient, and easily repeatable is another story. I'll help you streamline them, define boundaries around them, and choose automation tools that fit your budget and your business. You know that quote about how entrepreneurs jump off a cliff and build the plane on the way down? It makes us feel all cool and scrappy and resourceful, but really, when you're holding your business operations together with duct tape and sheer willpower, you'll eventually run out of time and energy to do the work you love.

Watch out for anyone who treats automation as the end game: without a clear vision for how you want your business to run and strong boundaries to support that vision, you'll end up paying for slightly-less-manual versions of the exact same struggles you're having right now.

DO YOU WORK WITH PEOPLE IN MY INDUSTRY?

Let's chat about it, but the answer is almost always yes. I've worked with nonprofit CEOs, musicians, artists, consultants, strategists, thought leaders and speakers, coaches, tech startups, spirits importers, wedding vendors, realtors, Etsy sellers, event space owners... I love a new challenge, and I'd be stoked to add you to the list!

CAN I HIRE YOU as my obm on an ongoing basis?
