Entrepreneurs work really hard to create valuable, useful offerings for their clients. But sometimes, when those diligent business owners are operating solo, it can become a challenge to maintain the creative flow. And although occasionally repurposing old material can be perfectly sufficient, it’s important to keep your mind fresh and your ideas percolating. But how?
You need a trusted partner.
An online business manager is much more than an operations officer or a project manager. A good OBM is a thoughtful, engaged and invested party who can serve you and your business as a sounding board for your ideas.
She can help you examine your brilliant idea from all angles to see if it’s good, bad, or just ok. She can ask questions and help you envision likely scenarios to help you predict future challenges or results. She can help you develop your ideas into full-fledged programs or products that your clients will love.
You need an early-warning system.
An OBM can also help you see where those ideas you thought were so brilliant in the middle of the night might not pan out the way you hope. She can work with you to formulate a system by which you can detect early in the process when things start to go wrong.
And she can also help you develop a backup plan so that if the project can’t be cancelled, it can at least be somehow salvaged or diverted in such a way that your business risk is minimized.
You need a cleaner.
Occasionally, even the best-planned projects have holes that make them fail. Sometimes important details fall through the cracks. When that happens, you need someone to help you clean up the mess.
An online business manager is the person who does the post-mortem for you. She pores over the plans and the execution to detect exactly what went wrong, when, and where. She can identify the cause AND the solution to the problem so that next time, the project will be executed flawlessly.
Why choose an online business manager?
Indeed, why not ask your best friend or significant other to help you with these tasks? Simply put, love isn’t the same as experience. No matter how much these people care for you and your business, they cannot provide the depth of knowledge or skill that an OBM has. An OBM is also objective and will tell you the truth about the big picture of your ventures.
