"Project and team management are a big part of being a DBM—laying out the plan, making sure it gets executed, making sure deadlines are being met, and learning how to shift and move things around to ensure things are getting done on time—are all a part of my job. Ultimately, what I aim to do as a DBM is take the daily operations off my client's plate. So if one of their team members has a question, they come to me first, not my client. This allows my clients to focus almost entirely on income-generating work.” 


This episode is for you if: 

  • You’re curious what a Digital Business Manager does, how many hours you need to dedicate to the role each week, and how to find your first client. 
  • You’re curious what the day-to-day looks like as a DBM and a parent.
  • You’re wondering how to make the transition from a Virtual Assistant to a Digital Business Manager.

We sat down with Megan Schenleber—Digital Business Manager, wife, and mother to a young daughter. In this episode, you’ll learn about Megan’s background, how she got started as a Virtual Assistant and transitioned into being a Digital Business Manager, what her day-to-day looks like juggling a freelance career with a young child, and a whole set of pro tips for those of you considering this career path.
