The last quarter of 2021 has arrived. How many of you are as stunned as I am that it’s already October?
I spent much of September transitioning my children from summer mode to school mode and launching a massive online platform for one of my clients. It’s been non-stop.
I still managed to reflect on the past year and dream about the new year ahead. We celebrated Rosh Hashanah (read my September blog here), and with that, I made a couple of pretty big decisions.
But before I get into that, let’s rewind.
When I started The 25th Hour in 2012, I considered myself a researcher and organizer. I was already adept at comparative research, and I was efficient. I got stuff done. These skills have been honed over the last ten years, so much so that they come second nature.
Early on, I landed a gig leading an extensive talent acquisition project; I embraced it. I had no idea the amount of work this project would take, and I grossly under-estimated the time and effort I would invest -- but I rocked it. At this point, I realized I had an innate ability to understand the needs of business owners and build highly effective teams -- starting with recruitment.
Since then, I have transitioned from a virtual and executive assistant to a Certified Online Business Manager (COBM). I went from doing the doing to managing and coordinating -- and it is the latter I love the most. Along the way, I managed countless recruitment projects for my clients (and for myself). While every one of these projects has been unique, the common denominators are the effort we put into them and the subsequent results.
Fast forward to 2021. This year has shown me that I am a team-builder, a networker, a problem solver, and an avid learner. It is in these areas that I thrive and deliver unparalleled results.
The 25th Hour commits to the success of its clients. Whether it is talent acquisition, strategy plan development, or ongoing support and leadership, we tailor services to each organization's unique needs. As CEO, I have been blessed with many long-term clients whom I have supported and partnered with over the last decade -- and I am thrilled to announce that for the first time in several years, I have space for one more long-term client!
As your certified OBM, I partner with you and make it my mission to achieve your dream results! It isn’t magic (shhh, don’t tell anyone!); it’s a process I have developed over the last decade that allows us to deep dive into all areas of your business and facilitate a plan of action. I will be there in your corner throughout the development and implementation!
And if that isn’t exciting enough, I also want to share with you that I have begun the journey to becoming a certified Director of Operations (DOO)! With this new certification, which I will achieve in April 2022, I will bring additional skills and knowledge to our partnership. I am incredibly excited to be in full-time learning mode again, where I can immediately share my learning with my current clients and with you -- my new client!
Whether you need an OBM or a DOO (or both -- that’s me!) I am confident The 25th Hour will exceed all of your expectations. I would love to chat with you about your business goals and begin to craft the path to your success. Let’s connect today to schedule a brief thirty-minute call to see how The 25th Hour can support you!
The future is ours to create -- let’s make it fabulous!
