Is Your Biz Team the Dream Team... or a Nightmare?

Do you know if you have the dream team that will make your biz vision and audacious goals a reality? Or is managing your team a bit of a nightmare?

Let me set the stage… you’re peers and competitors are posting about their team members who make it possible for them to show up Photoflawless and working the 4-Hour Work Week while you’re overwhelmed and just trying to keep your head above water.

You have a “team” or a group of randomly hired and loosely organized VAs and freelancers that you’re not entirely sure what to do with and feel like ANOTHER thing you have to manage.

I see it all the time with business owners who know they need help, so they hire… but without any focus on what support they really need at their stage of business.

With all the acronyms like COO, CPA, OM, OBM, VA, Tech VA, EA, etc., floating around the internet/freelancer economy, what support roles that you need do you really need to grow and scale your business?

Types of support roles needed to be successful in a business

✅ Solopreneurs/Just getting started
If you’re a solopreneur or just getting started, you need a part-time virtual assistant or freelancer. At this stage in your business, you’re doing all the things, wearing all the hats, and spending a lot of time on tasks that are not bringing in revenue and are probably outside of your expertise. Hiring a VA or freelancers to catch the overflow and manage tasks that you don’t have strong skills in will save you a lot of time, money, and headaches down the road.

✅ Growing Biz Owners
If you’re hitting your growth stride, have clients and income, and are focusing on increasing your income and keeping them at consistently high levels, an OBM (Online Business Manager) is a natural progression. You still need a VA, you’re working with them more regularly as a member of your team, and meanwhile, your OBM can focus on maintaining and managing your team and project operations so that your business runs more smoothly without you.

✅ Looking for Leverage
If your biz is almost full and it feels like you can’t take on any more business – you need a part-time COO and/or a consultant to building out your infrastructure, your systems, your workflows, and your team to make scaling easy. At this level, you need a part-time COO/consultant to build out your infrastructure, your systems, your workflows, and your team to make scaling easy.


No matter where you are in your business, it’s never too early to ask for help and start building out your team. These roles can be filled at every price point, especially if you’re open to virtual workers overseas. Don’t let price be a deterrent when you think about building your business, because honestly, having a team only accelerates your ability to grow.
