Searching for a way to break into online work? Leveraging your unique strengths as a Virtual Assistant or Online Business Manager could help you do exactly that. But what’s the difference between the two roles?

When I started my online business back in 2009, my first role was as a Tech VA. After a few years, I made the decision to transition into the OBM role. This move was a total game-changer, not just for my business – but my lifestyle. I was able to work with less clients, increase my rates, and gained more free time to spend with my kids.

I still see the Virtual Assistant role as a valuable one – in fact, I currently employ two VAs at Sarah Noked OBM. However, figuring out whether to become a VA or OBM, or deciding which one to hire for your own business, can seem tricky if you’re new to the online space.

In this video, I’m diving deep into the roles of VA vs. OBM. I’ll be comparing the two roles, and covering:
