I established myself as a business owner by first working for friends. In 2012, a friend asked me to research places to go for a ten-year anniversary trip. Another friend requested I find the best assisted living home in California to care for her brother.
Tell me what you want done and I’ll do it. That’s where The 25th Hour began.
Finally, a friend wanted to apply to art schools to secure an advanced degree. I took it upon myself to streamline the admissions process. I created accounts, collected documentation, ensured their timely submissions and followed up with schools on my friend’s behalf. My friend didn’t want just a list of compatible art schools; my friend wanted to eliminate the overwhelming application process from her responsibilities. She needed to focus on showcasing her art.
Now when given a project, I envision the need - the reason why the project exists - and I begin there, in that headspace starting with the end in mind. This is the type of foresight The 25th Hour has become known for.
As an OBM, I do not just conduct comparative research for any given project, but l also troubleshoot potential or realized roadblocks and weigh the merit of alternative perspectives. I am the decision maker.
I combine my brains and my brawn.
Since undertaking the journey toward certification as an Online Business Manager I am encouraged to rely on my intuition, my raw talent, to hone my managerial and marketing mindset. I have possessed the necessary tools of an OBM since day one of The 25th Hour.
Today I serve my clients with such refined confidence they are getting results they didn’t know they needed or valued.
