'5 steps to take before you hire!'

Carmel David - 5 steps to take before you hire a team

Hello there, I’m Carmel Fanning, a Certified Director of Operations & Virtual Chief Operating Officer specialising in guiding Service-based CEOs. Over the past 9 years, I’ve immersed myself in the world of multiple 6 & 7 figure businesses, dedicating my expertise to helping these leaders streamline, optimise, and expand their online enterprises from the ground up.

Together, we’ve crafted and implement strategic plans, seamlessly integrated operational systems, welcomed aligned teams onboard, and orchestrated wildly successful online launches.

Yet, my mission goes beyond mere sales figures and business achievements. I take immense pride in assisting my clients in creating their desired lifestyles alongside their entrepreneurial journeys. After all, that’s the true essence of why we embark on this path! I’ve rejoiced as the incredible women I’ve collaborated with have taken time off to explore the world, reduced their work hours to be present with their children, acquired their dream homes, prioritised their well-being, and uncovered new passions and hobbies beyond the realm of work.

Let’s connect for an obligation-free conversation, and together, we can explore if I’m the right Director of Operations to transform your business aspirations into reality.

Are you the bottleneck in your own business?

It’s a common scenario! When you’re responsible for dreaming up, overseeing, and running every aspect of your growing business, it doesn’t take long to realize that you’re just one person, and trying to balance it all while maintaining your health and happiness can be overwhelming.

Here is what I want you to remember:

You are a brilliant and accomplished entrepreneur. You’ve brought your business to this point. However, you’ve transitioned from being a solopreneur, diligently managing every task, posting, and invoice, to becoming the CEO, the visionary, the leader.

That means it’s your role to step into your rightful position, occupy the space you deserve, and focus on the work you were born to do.

In other words, the day-to-day operations, team supervision, and project execution should no longer be your primary concern.

This is where someone like me, a certified Director of Operations, steps in. You may have heard others in your recent mastermind groups mention the need for an OBM, an integrator, or an online manager — a Director of Operations takes that concept to the next level. I will elevate your online business management to new heights.

Here’s what it would look like:

You establish a strategic partnership with someone you can trust to propel your business to greater heights. Whether that involves helping you define your strategic objectives, devising a plan to guarantee their success, managing your next highly successful online launches, assembling and nurturing your dream team, or assuming control of behind-the-scenes projects in your business.

That Director of Operations could very well be me.

What my clients say about me

"Carmel has a wealth of knowledge on how to run an online business. Having run an online agency I didn't have a clue of what systems I needed and before working with Carmel my systems were very trial and error. Carmel is meticulous when it comes to systems, and has helped me scale my business in a way in a quick and stress-free manner. 

I am so grateful Carmel helped me streamline my business, she's also a really lovely person to work with and genuinely wants to help you. "

Deborah O'Grady

The Brand Coach

"Carmel has been an absolute rockstar for my business. When she first joined my team back in 2018 I didn't even have an online calendar. I had no systems or processes in my business and everything was in my head. She came in like a systems fairy godmother and with her support, in just 2 years the business has grown exponentially from 6 figures to 7 figures in yearly revenue. I don't want to let her go (EVERYONE needs a Carmel), but due to her doing such a great job the business now needs its own full time team. Carmel has been a key part of the integration and training process for my in house team that has grown from just me, to 5 people, and I will be forever grateful to her for her support and expertise."

Success Mastery Coach & Transformational Pioneer.

"Carmel’s strategic mapping session was a whole new experience - one that I didn’t quite expect. I never really made the time to think about what I’m trying to create with my business and why. I also never made the time to look at the “behind the scenes” milestones and objectives that will allow me to tick off my goals with ease. Working with Carmel allowed me to pause the hamster wheel of work mode and get really clear on what I truly want from my business and from my life. I can’t wait to see what this new level of focus and intention will do."
