Show Notes

Not every business owner can do all the tasks their business requires without burnout. This brings up the opportunity to find out what type of person you might need to fill these gaps and bring your strengths together to thrive. That’s why episode 85 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about Integrator / COO / DOO / OBM - What’s the difference and which do you need right now?

Have you ever felt like you were WAY too busy, stressed out, burnt out, and overwhelmed, so you were advised to delegate some tasks to take things off your plate and free up some time? Except, maybe it didn't work. If getting out of the day-to-day in your business was as simple as hiring more people, then why are you still feeling overwhelmed and burned out? You are not alone! Sometimes, simply delegating tasks doesn’t work and instead shifts your workload from “doing” to “managing.”

I invite you to use the exercise that our own C-Suite clients use to take the first step in turning your team into a well-oiled, self-managed machine- and get you out of the delegation catch-22. Download the exercise here to get started!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, I’m sharing the importance of understanding these different roles and actionable steps you can take right now to start to fill the position you need that will drive your business forward. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:

  • Celebrating Katalin Karikó, the biochemist from Hungary whose perseverance led to a major contribution to today’s COVID vaccines.   
  • The differences between an integrator, a COO, a DOO, or an OBM- how they overlap one another and how they can help your business in different ways.
  • Questions to ask yourself to better determine which one of these positions is right for your business at the current moment.
  • Talking about cancel culture and how it ties into the consumer’s choice to support the businesses they believe in.

Keep challenging those stale, outdated, and inflexible business practices and embrace these new ways of achieving success that leaves room for your life in the process. 

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of tools, advice, resources, support, and encouragement that resonates with the modern business woman and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
