Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • A Director of Operations / Online Business Manager is a self-employed consultant that helps entrepreneurs run their businesses more efficiently, and increase impact and profit. They manage the day-to-operations (or back-end) of the business so the CEO can focus on work only they can do. See the Services question below for more specifics on what a Director of Operations does.
  • It creates space for the work you love – partnering with your clients to create long-lasting health improvements, whether emotionally, mentally or physically!
  • It saves time! Employee paperwork for medical insurance, taxes, worker’s comp, annual reviews, etc. is very time consuming!
  • It costs less. Eric Koester of MyHighTechStart-Up, says “estimates range from 1.5x to 3x of salary for the ‘fully-baked’ cost of an employee – the cost including things like benefits, taxes, equipment, training, rent, etc.” If you hire a Director of Operations for $100,000, the actual cost is $150,000 – $300,000! You can hire a skilled Director of Operations / Online Business Manager for less!
  • Schedule a free introductory call. We’ll chat about your business and see if we’re a good fit.
  • If everything’s in alignment, we’ll send you a contract and invoice. Once both are completed, we’ll begin working together.
    • If we’re working on a 1-time project, 50% is due up front before the work begins. Why? This reserves your spot on our calendar. Also, this is standard practice in the industry to avoid not getting paid for services rendered. (Sadly, that happens too often.) Payment #2 (50%) will be due after the work is complete.
    • If we’re working together on retainer, the entire invoice is due up front because we’re reserving a large amount of time on our calendar for your business, which impacts any additional projects and clients we decide to book. 
  • Share log-ins with us necessary to complete the work through a secure system. 
  • We’ll communicate if there are questions. Depending on the project or retainer, we may have a weekly or monthly meeting.
  • We’ll send you a short questionnaire. We welcome your testimonial and feedback on how we did and how we can continue to improve!
