How to have more freedom and flexibility earning more while working less as a highly valued, In-Demand Project Manager

Even if you’ve never officially project managed before!

Read on to find out how I went from a low paid, burned out VA to a highly valued, in-demand Project Manager with lots of free time -- and how you can too.

Does this sound familiar?

  • Are you spending all day chained to your laptop doing tasks that that drain you (hardly the “dream life”)?

  • Do you regularly have clients’ “urgent” needs coming at you at all hours of the day and night?

  • Are you exhausted from the stress of thrown-together launches (where last-minute emergencies fall on your shoulders)?

  • Are your boundaries constantly tested, questioned, and pushed -- again and again?

The long hours, low pay and high stress of being a VA or OBM are hardly what you dreamed of when you started an online business!

YOU'RE A NATURAL BORN PROJECT MANAGER —

and you’re ready to build a strong business that taps into your natural talents.

  • A business where you constantly operate in your Zone of Genius --planning, managing and leading.

  • Do you regularly have clients’ “urgent” needs coming at you at all hours of the day and night?

  • A business that you can grow without doing all of the grunt work for your clients or creating a massive agency.

  • A business where you can serve big-name clients (who see your high value and are happy to invest in you) -- and still have the freedom to pick your kids up in the afternoon!

Meanwhile, you often have to put work before the things most important to you. (Your kids and husband are used to knowing when “mommy’s on a call” and can’t be bothered.)

It can leave you feeling like you have no control over your life.

How many times have you thought to yourself, “I don’t get paid enough for this kind of stress!”

Not to mention -- you’re doing tasks that feel way below your skill level…

Like being stuck carrying the weight of planning AND implementing for your clients. And potential clients are wanting you to implement too.

You wonder if it’s possible to work completely in your zone of genius, where you are:

  • Planning, managing and leading -- without doing all of the grunt work for your clients

  • Valued for the high-level knowledge you’ve acquired after all your time spent behind the scenes

  • Serving big-name clients who see your high value and are happy to invest in you

  • In charge of your time and schedule -- and have the freedom to pick your kids up at any moment you need to!

Sounds good, right? But right now…Is this you?

Are you in the corporate world, wanting to make the leap to be your own boss -- but not sure what to do next?

You feel chained to your desk, you’re not fully working in your zone of genius, and you’re hungry for more fulfillment. But how do you get started online? How do you apply all of your corporate experience in the online world? And what new systems do you need to learn to make a lot of money doing it?

Or maybe you’re a virtual assistant… and you’re getting burned out!

You’re doing tasks that feel way below your skill level -- and dream of working completely in your zone of genius! You have to deal with clients’ last minute “urgent” needs at all hours of the day and night-- leaving you feeling like you have no control over your life, and like your boundaries are constantly being tested.

And as for the “freedom and flexibility” you wanted when starting your business…your business is turning out to be more stressful than a 9-5!!

I get it! I've been there too!
And you know what I found out?

There’s a way to do what you love without sacrificing your time and sanity!

  • Where you work with established clients who understand your worth and pay you what you ask!

  • Where you can do what brings you joy -- planning and managing in the online space!

  • Where you can get a bigger seat at the table when it comes to your client’s business and strategic decisions!

  • Where you can grow your business without bringing on an entire team!

Don’t think it’s possible? Think again!

If you’re in the middle of Struggletown USA, then listen up, my friend!

The truth is:

You don’t have to do both management and
implementation (unless YOU want to!).

You don’t have to work 24/7.

And you don’t have to hire a huge team to make it work.

You can be highly valued AND have more freedom and flexibility.

And it can be E-A-S-Y!

All you need is a step-by-step plan and guidance from a woman who’s not only made it work for herself but also trains the best Project Managers in the industry for a living.

Let me introduce myself. I’m Nicole!

I've built a thriving project management business online, and I mentor and train other service providers to become successful Project Managers too.

My students are killing it managing their own multiple 6-figure projects!

But as you can probably guess, it wasn’t always this way for me…

I started out in the online space as a Virtual Assistant…

But I found that the pay was low and the hours were long. And frankly, my best strengths were sitting dusty on a shelf.

I was stuck scheduling endless amounts of social media posts, doing 20 revisions of one graphic, or trying to figure out backend systems I didn’t even want to be working in!

I thought about becoming an Online Business Manager, but didn’t want to do small detailed tasks AND manage a project team at the same time (including the client and MYSELF)!

It took me over a year of trial and error to figure out how I could do ONLY the managing and organizing work I loved -- and NOT all the implementing.

And THEN I had to create a well-thought system that would make my clients and ME happy!

After a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, I created my own project management system and began working exclusively as a Project Manager for multiple 6 and 7-figure online business owners.

And my life and business transformed...

I no longer was responsible for last-minute fires.
Or handed tasks that drained me.
Or getting “urgent” emergency texts from clients.

Instead...

I was doing the organizing and managing I loved.
I was in a leadership role and was looked up to by the team.
My income took a giant leap (hitting 6-figures, multiple 6-figures and beyond).
My client highly valued me and boundaries were never pushed.

And the best part?

I had the time and freedom to spend time with my family, travel and actually run my business (instead of it running me.)

It was an absolutely amazing feeling to finally work in my zone of genius -- and still have lots of time and energy for my relationships and LIFE!

And my clients loved this change, too.

My clients were so happy with the results that I got referral after referral.

People heard that when I came into client's businesses, launches were actually going smoothly (imagine that!)… and they wanted this support too.

I discovered… online business owners NEED high-quality Project Managers.

The need someone on the team overseeing, managing, and delegating -- who is NOT stuck in the weeds implementing!

That person could be you!

I became so in demand that I have to turn away potential Project Management clients!

It took a ton of testing and refining in order to finally create an amazing project management system that both me and my clients love!

People reach out to me every week wanting project management help in their business.

But I can’t serve everyone. I also know there are so many Virtual Assistants, Social Media Managers, and Online Business Managers wanting to learn how to Project Manage online and become totally booked out!

And so I created...

PROJECT MANAGE LIKE A CEO

An 8-week training designed to take you from stressed out VA to fully-booked Project Manager!

This program teaches the exact formula that I used to become a fully booked, totally happy Project Manager online!

 
Copy-of-Main-Course (1).jpg
 

Once you go through Project Manage Like a CEO, you’ll be able to:

IN THIS TRAINING, YOU WILL LEARN EVERY SINGLE STEP OF SUCCESSFULLY MANAGING A PROJECT FROM START TO FINISH!

  • Confidently market yourself as a project manager, including setting up and leading sales conversations.

  • Charge more for your services than you could as a VA or OBM.

  • Take on new clients as a project manager -- and make your own schedule!

  • See a project through from A-Z, oversee a team, and become a life saver for clients who need you!

  • Do what you LOVE (and delegate tasks you can’t stand to other people!)

  • And finally-- manage your own launches and projects!

AS IN HOW TO:

  • Build out a project from scratch: delegate tasks, assign deadlines, and oversee it to the finish line. (And exactly what software to use and how!)

  • Confidently lead a sales conversation where you show the high value of your Project Management Services.

  • Step up as the leader of your business (vs. an employee of someone else’s!) -- highly respected and in charge of your own business & schedule.

  • Lead intake conversations with clients to get all of the key information you need to manage major projects with multiple team members (often around the globe!).

  • Set up your project for success from the very beginning.

  • Create a solid, masterful plan without any gaps to fall through.

  • Manage and lead a virtual team (in different time zones with different communication styles and different strengths).

  • Communicate with your clients so they fall in love with you no matter what news you may have to deliver. (Yes, there’s a strategy to this!)

  • And more!

It took me over a year of trial and error to figure out where my skills could fit in the marketplace -- without ALSO having to do the implementation that drained me.

And after that, I had to figure out every single step required to successfully oversee launches and manage projects for clients.

And it wasn’t easy!

I spent hours and hours trying to “figure out” how to manage a project online, what online systems to use, the roadblocks to account for, and how to oversee it from start to finish.

And then there was figuring out how to create packages in my sweet spot -- that I could charge premium rates for!

There were tearful nights and vent sessions with friends and mentors, mistakes made, boundaries crossed with misaligned clients -- and lots of late nights and weekends spent trying to figure it out!

Since then, I’ve taught this formula to service providers who are now killing it managing their own multiple 6-figure projects -- without all the pain I went through!


And now it is available to you in Project Manage Like a CEO.


The great thing about this system is how actionable it is -- and how fast it works.

 

The best part of the Project Manage like a CEO was that it was actionable! The client onboarding process was so well laid out that 2 days after the Module was released, I used the process with a new client!”

In PM like a CEO, there were so many opportunities to immediately apply what we were learning! I appreciate the videos where we could “look over Nicole’s shoulder” and set up the systems we needed. This is a must do course for anyone wanting to add Project Management services to their offerings!
— Teresa

Before taking Project Manage like a CEO, I was a freelancer doing it ALL for my clients. I was feeling completely burned-out and not sure how I could grow without taking on even more. After going through PM like a CEO, I was able to step into a Project Manager role and make six-figures three months earlier than I expected! The best part of Project Manage like a CEO is how much Nicole cares about all of the members. She answers questions directly and her advice to one of my questions was worth 3x the cost of this program!

Before I joined PM Like a CEO, I had left my Corporate job to try and get started online, but was struggling to get it off the ground.

After PM like a CEO, I ‘m totally confident managing any type of project, in any project management system. I took what I learned in the course and immediately started getting clients as a project manager.

As a result, I have now recouped all of the money I made in corporate while running my own business, with way more flexibility, working with clients I love!

“PM Like a CEO has helped me in countless ways -- far beyond project plans.”

Prior to PM Like a CEO, I felt like I had hit an income ceiling. I didn’t have the skills to charge a higher rate and I was giving away hours of work to clients paying a few hundred dollars a month. Resentment would build and burnout was normal. On top of that, some of my clients had poorly planned launches and I was paying the price for it — scrambling around at the 11th hour.

This program has helped me in countless ways — far beyond project plans. PM Like a CEO is so much more than a project management program; Nicole teaches client management and mindset. My business is now less stressful because I have the tools to better plan for projects and create better boundaries with my clients.

I recommend this program to anyone I know who runs an online business. Project management is going to be a big part of your world, so take the time to develop your PM skills with Nicole!

Nicole is a project management champion and the go-to expert in our online industry.

I’ve worked on many launch teams, with and without Nicole as the PM, and there is a huge difference when she is on board. Nicole makes launches as stress-free and fun as they could possibly be… while maintaining a professional and accountable environment!
— Jillian Adriana
 

When I started out, I had SO MANY coaches -- a business coach, a sales coach, a mindset coach, a Facebook marketing coach. Don’t get me wrong, this incredible mentorship helped me grow my business tremendously, but I did feel like one thing was missing...

Someone to mentor me on how to plan and manage projects for virtual businesses.

Someone to provide me with direction, support, and some hand-holding when it came to navigating this new industry.

This is is why I created Project Manage Like a CEO -- so it can give you all the information I had to discover (or create) for myself!

Get ready to feel comfortable and confident managing a project from start to finish—in the face of all the danger and deadlines you might stumble upon along the way.

By the time we finish there will be no challenge you can't conquer and no issues you can't vanquish.

Clients are ready for you right now!

The sooner you start learning these skills, the sooner you can get out there as a project manager and start serving people who really need you. I get client inquiries all the time that I don’t have the time or space to fill. These could be coming to your inbox!
