For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Roxana Ghita, and I am the founder of Brudarac Ltd, an OBM agency based in Scotland. I am mother to a beautiful girl and life partner to a loving and supportive man.
The OBM certification has been the first ingredient in my search for success. Before I explain how that happened, let me first describe what success is to me: being a happy woman, committed mother, prosperous entrepreneur, inspiring leader and an enlightened spiritual being.
I was already running an online business providing administrative services (basically a glorified VA) when I enrolled for the OBM certification. However, being pregnant with my first baby made me want to scale up. I wanted to earn more while working less. Being a parent made me want to spend as much time with my family as humanly possible.
After doing some research online, I came across the term OBM (Online Business Manager) and landed on Sarah Noked’s website. There I discovered that I could become a certified OBM. I checked Sarah’s blog and Facebook page for more info, and I felt a strong resonance with her. So I booked a call with her!
Can I just say how much I loved and still love Sarah’s energy and authenticity? Not only did she answer my questions without pushing the certification on to me, she’s also been one of my role models ever since. She showed me that you can have a happy family while running a successful business;a all the while looking after a small child that just loves to touch everything and knows no fear – unlike myself and my partner these days!
Before becoming a mother, I had this limiting belief that one could never be a successful entrepreneur, like I wanted to be, and have a happy family– there are only 24 hours in a day, at present!
The OBM program helped a lot with my mindset, business and evidently, my family life. Here are the main benefits that I have enjoyed:
- Many new skills such as doing a launch
- Confidence to charge OBM rates
- Access to Sarah’s SOP vault (this is absolute gold)
- Support group (there’s a private Facebook group for certified OBMs and the value of it cannot be measured. Whenever I have a question or a concern I go there and Tina Forsyth, Sarah Noked or other members are sure to help me out).
- Access to the OBM database and a greater opportunity to find work
- Regular updates and mini trainings by Tina Forsyth
- Certified OBM badge on my website
I’ll finish here by saying that I absolutely love Sarah’s manner of teaching and I still go back to the course whenever I want to refresh a skill.
If you are considering doing the OBM certification, I encourage you to speak to Sarah. And of course, you can always ask me for details about my experience. Although it felt like a big financial investment at the time, and I had to find the money within two months, it was so so worth it. Ask my partner how easy I endorse people, products or services!
Truth is, now I have the confidence and skills to provide more value to my clients and to charge more. The reason for this is because I can offer more and I feel more.
