Why Your Team Won’t Make Your Business Easier
Are you making over six figures in your business and STILL wondering when the “freedom lifestyle” all the gurus promised you is going to arrive?
As your business got busier, you did what they said…
1. You hired a VA
2. You strengthened your boundaries
3. You hired an OBM
… but you’re STILL at the edge of burnout???
I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but your VA and OBM are not going to make your business any easier to run or allow you to take more time off.
Your biz systems are broken – Congrats, you hired team members and bought yourself some breathing room by clearing a little bit off of your plate, but you’ve really just shifted your workload to someone else WITHOUT actually becoming more efficient. As you grow, you’ll need more bodies to manage the same broken systems.
Your VA/OBM is overloaded – From admin to daily ops to projects and putting out any fires in between, your team is juggling all of the things for you. That’s great, except they are overloaded with the day-to-day ops, which means they can’t get into building your systems or streamlining operations.
This happens all the time, and I was in this exact position many times when I was an OBM. I was the right-hand-master-of-all-things AND I was so inundated overseeing the business, managing the team, overseeing projects, and putting out fires, that I didn’t have the time to build systems, automations, or scale workflows.
Your VA/OMB doesn’t specialize in scalable systems or infrastructure – Your VA/OBM may be an AWESOME right hand, an amazing team manager, and a great project planner, but they might not have the skillset to build workflows that streamline your business today AND will grow with you.
It takes a specific skill set to create the systems that will make your business easier to manage today and will also help you achieve your future growth goals.
Your OBM might not have this skillset to build what you need – especially if you focus on high-touch, high-ticket services or have near-term plans for diversifying services and launching new business lines.
All of my clients have had these challenges before working I come in to fix their broken systems, create real efficiency with their team, and set them up to scale with ease.

You’re Fearless When You Know What to Expect
Has fear ever held you back from doing something that you REALLY, REALLY want to do?
Maybe from showing up Live on Social, joining a club or putting out a new offer?
There was a time when I almost let fear stop me from doing something I was dying to do – travel abroad solo – and the same tactics that let me travel solo fearlessly, also helped me grow my business.
I was Ready but Too Late
Do you know what a hairstylist, a facialist, and a tattoo artist all have in common with your business?
This isn’t a riddle or brain teaser, it’s a fact that I discovered whenever I was looking for someone to support me or my business: By the time that I was “ready” to book an appointment or work with them, it was too late.
Let me explain… and I’m sure you might see some similarities in your day to day.
