Drive growth, increase revenue & enjoy a better work-life balance
As an Online Business Manager (OBM), I help coaches, small businesses & entrepreneurs organise, systemise, automate & simplify their businesses. This frees them up to focus on the aspects of their businesses that drive real value, as well as achieve a healthier work-life balance.
How I Can Help You
Chances are you started your business because you were passionate about a vision and wanted to create a venture that would allow you to live the life you want. But sometimes your business can end up consuming the majority of your time and that has the opposite effect on your work-life balance.
So what’s the solution?
Delegating tasks is usually the first step many business owners take and that’s perfectly logical. However, when you’ve been used to doing everything yourself, this can seem a little alien and there’s often a tendency to micro-manage (which defeats the point of delegating in the first place!)
As an OBM, I act as more of a strategic partner, learning your business inside out so I can suggest improvements, create efficient workflows and generally improve your operations (rather than just follow existing processes). This ultimately frees you up to focus on developing your business further, adding extra value to your customers and spending more time with your family and loved ones.
In a nutshell, the benefits of partnering with an OBM are:
- Less micro-management
- Smoother, more efficient business processes
- Boosted growth
- Increased revenue
- Maintained direction (without you needing to always steer)
- Freedom for you to be creative
- Improved work-life balance for you
Let’s work together on the mutual goals of improving your business and freeing up your precious time.

I’m Jo Harrison, an Online Business Manager (OBM) who’s dedicated to helping you achieve your business, lifestyle and personal goals. By providing you with strategic business support, I can help you take your business to the next level and beyond. And the best part is you don’t need to get bogged down with micro-managing.
My 10 years experience as a Virtual Assistant (VA) not only taught me how to best help business owners when it comes to the day-to-day running of their businesses, but also how to streamline processes, maximise efficiency and oversee more than just the daily tasks.
I’m experienced in managing projects, implementing new systems and solutions, automating workflows and overseeing operations.
If you want to organise, systemise, automate & simplify your business, so you can take more of a back seat and focus on the stuff that really matters to you and your customers.
Here’s what my wonderful clients say about me:
I have been working with Jo since the start of 2021 and it is a decision I wish I had made sooner! Jo is highly experienced and has offered many powerful suggestions that have helped me streamline my operation and keep me focused on the most important aspects of developing my coaching business and serving my clients. Whatever I ask for support with, Jo responds promptly, positively and completes everything to a high standard. Her knowledge of various online systems, and efficient ways of operating, have been so helpful and saved me lots of time and energy. She is proactive and where she sees opportunities to work more effectively, offers them. On top of all of that Jo is warm, friendly and genuinely cares about the success of her clients. If you are looking for high quality support for your business I could not recommend her more highly.
Jo's support as VA to my business has always been helpful and fun. Jo improved our operational procedures, how we manage tasks and see mini-projects through from start to finish, within six weeks of starting - a fantastic result. Whilst not taking herself (or me!) too seriously, Jo gets on with things in a professional and effective way. She takes the initiative when appropriate, she doesn't need any hand holding. Jo gets on well with everyone else on the team. And most importantly, on the client side too. I strongly recommend Jo's support as a VA.
I got to know Jo via LinkedIn, curious of the fact she was an assistant for coaches, someone who would understand my core business.
Jo's proactive attitude is unmatched. As a virtual assistant she behaves like a trusted advisor and she is very good at anticipating issues and planning ahead.
What really stands out is her deep empathy and the way she relates to my practice in her own way. She has given me peace of mind and this is simply invaluable...
We really like working with Jo. She strives to help in whatever way she can, generally above and beyond what we ask her to do. Her response is quick and she is always open and honest about her workflow and when we can look to have any tasks completed. Above all, Jo knows a lot more than she currently promotes, as such, the more we get to know her the more ways we find we want to work with her.
Jo is a reliable, solid, and concise assistant who's time and skills I value immensely. Highly recommended if you need someone to help you keep on track and up to date.
