After starting her own coaching business in 2000, Tina quickly came to see the need to partner visionaries with high-level support. With her natural ability to bring both strategy and implementation to the table, Tina quickly began working with 6 to 7-figure leaders within the coaching industry, and thus, the role of the Online Business Manager was born.

She saw the demand for a high-level support rising and created the International Association of Online Business Managers in 2008 — the home of the Certified OBM® Training — the only program of its kind. In the 10+ years since its inception, the OBM (Online Business Manager) industry has now become established as a key role on the team of fast-growing online and virtually based businesses.

Tina also provides training and coaching for online based service providers (VAs, OBMs, marketing and tech professionals) who want to break free from the 1-1 model of ‘doing all the work themselves’ to building a 6-figure agency that allows them to expand their capacity, keep growing and make more money.

If you are a linear thinker like me, here are some of my stats. I’ve been working online now since 1999 and in that time I’ve:

  • Worked as an Online Business Manager for various 6 and 7-figure businesses
  • Coached hundreds of entrepreneurs – coaches, consultants, authors, speakers, trainers and the like – in setting up leveraged revenue streams, key business systems and the right team to support their growth.
  • Co-authored Pink Spoon Marketing and Money, Meaning & Beyond, both with Andrea J. Lee
  • Co-founded the Multiple Streams Team in 2005, a full service agency that matched business owners with virtual assistance.
  • Co-founded the Hot Skills VA Training program in 2007 providing cutting edge training to virtual assistants in the skills that business owners need.
  • Wrote and released the book Becoming an Online Business Manager: Playing a Bigger Game with your Clients and Yourself in 2008 (tenth anniversary edition released in 2018).
  • Founded the International Association of Online Business Managers and the Online Business Manager Training & Certification program in 2009.
  • Wrote the award winning book The Entrepreneur’s Trap: How to Stop Working Too Much, Take Back Your Time and Enjoy Life!
  • Created the 30-Hour Workweek Training – to help people get the right systems, team and leveraged revenue streams in place so they stop working so darn hard and set up their business to run without them
  • Created the 6-Figure Agency program for online service providers who are ready to break free from working 1-1 “doing it all themselves’ to building a team of trusted professionals that allows them to expand capacity, serve more clients & make more money
  • Continues to provide various coaching & training programs to help online entrepreneurs take their business & teams to the next level

And given that I’m a creative kind of gal, there is always more to come… including my book Hire Up! coming in 2020.

The Inside Scoop:

Here’s a few things about my life that you won’t find in my bio.

  • I’m a mom of 2 girls – Samantha age 13 and Lexi age 11. They are lively, smart and stubborn (just like their mama, ahem.)
  • ’m Canadian, born and raised in Alberta – Yes, I’m polite and laid back but not afraid to kick-butt when needed (although you might not see it coming… )
  • I read every single day – voraciously. A mix of fiction to relax my brain & biz/personal development books to stimulate it.
  • I was almost an accountant – my first job after getting my biz degree in 1994 was an accounting clerk. I love numbers but after taking a tax class I knew it wasn’t for me (seriously, have you ever tried to read the tax code?)
  • My first daughter was born at home – we had a natural home-birth with a midwife. Painful? Yes, but oh so worth it! And I got to do it my way (that whole stubborn thing)
  • I play as hard as I work – I love my business but truth be told I love my free time just as much and have built my business to allow for evenings and weekends to be work free baby!
