How do you set yourself up for growth and success from the very start of your business?
You have to learn to let go of a LOT of things!
(If you’ve already been in the game for a while, remember — you can have a fresh start any time you want!)
Online Business Manager extraordinaire Sarah Noked helps entrepreneurs and online service professionals plan and implement the systems that help them achieve (and exceed!) their goals.
I LOVE talking to Sarah, because as an OBM, she has some amazing insights into all aspects of growing a business online — from hiring to scaling to creating effective systems.
Our conversation was genuine, real, and we covered it alllll.
One thing Sarah shared that stood out to me is that many of her clients bump up against mindset challenges.
Even if you offer an amazing service and have an engaged audience, your mindset can still hold you back from taking the steps you need to take in order to scale with less stress.
“I find a lot of the time, my clients don’t really recognize the importance of having a manager in place to manage whole parts of systems in their business,” Sarah says. “I don’t know where I would be without my OBM on my team… I find people have a lot of money mindset issues, almost like ‘Am I deserving of this team member? Am I deserving to have a successfully scaled business that is supported by the right people in the right seats?’”
My friend, I’m here to tell you right now, you are 100% deserving of that business!
