Marianne - OBM Tools

I partner with women in business to create tailored systems, processes and tools to save them time, money and energy when it comes to the reality of running a business and delivering to their clients.

It's time to build a connected, seamless system that aligns with your own working style, values and clients. 

It's absolutely possible - all you need is a little know-how, and someone to help you 'make it happen'!

your business systems and processes don't have to be complicated or overwhelming


I see you

You're a professional. And you know what you are doing - you need to, in order for your business to keep going!

Up until now, you have taught yourself enough to make all of the emails, automations, documents and spreadsheets that you need to actually run your business work...but they are definitely still missing that something that makes them feel easy, connected, and intuitive.

It's exhausting, right? Not to mention stressful keeping across all those different logins! Ain't nobody got time for that!

What you want, and need, is a way to see how to better use what you already have - or someone you can trust to come in and give you something that works, and makes sense, so you can get on with what you actually need to get done for your clients!

Let's get you thriving!

I'm also Mailchimp Certified. I have worked in corporate administration roles for over 20 years, covering every stage of administration from reception to finance to C-Suite 1:1 EA work. 

I love solving problems, and being the 'make it happen' person when it comes to documents, spreadsheets, presentations and business systems. My experience has shown me that that it's possible to do some incredible things with the tools you already have access to. I know that with a little know-how, you can confidently manage your business and wow your clients using practical, common-sense tools that align with how you like to work, and what your clients need!
