Online Business Management may be a new industry but it is growing bigger and bigger each and every day. Even so, there are still business owners who are wary of jumping into hiring an Online Business Manager for fear that it will only add to expenses as opposed to their business growth. If you are one of those business owners, read on to find out an OBM’s typical background and perhaps you’ll have a change of heart.
Business-growth professionals have started leaving their original professions and are now entering the OBM industry. Some of those who have entered this fast-growing industry are those with strong professional experiences in business, project, and administrative management. Administrative professionals are also starting to mold into OBMs.

This whole business owner thing is not for the faint of heart, there is a reason why most businesses fail!
While the road to burnout doesn’t look the same for everyone on it there are some similarities you typically experience on this path!
- You’re always in the weeds of your business
- You don’t have efficient systems and processes (or maybe none at all)
- You aren’t delegating effectively
- You can’t take time off
- You’re trying to do too many things at once + wearing all the hats
It’s exhausting just thinking about it! But there’s a way off the hamster wheel!
