You love being the right-hand woman for successful visionaries, but something’s just not clicking at this point.

You’ve been working as a VA or OBM in not only admin roles, but project management, human resources, logistics, financialsand maybe even more. Or you know you’re capable of all of that, if you just had the chance to step up as the natural leader you are.

  • You know there’s an uplevel for you, but don’t quite know how to best strategize it
  • You’re not booking clients that leverage your best skills or allow for a leadership role
  • You have some biz buddies, but none that totally get what you do as an operations-minded person
  • You know you have massive untapped potential, but aren’t sure how to access and maximize it
  • You’re a leader everywhere else in your life and you want your business model to reflect that, too
  • You have too many clients and are ready to transition to fewer clients with more profit


But then you think, “How exactly do I change my business model in a way that serves my purpose, my people and me?”

What others are saying…

This certification is the missing piece of strategy and high-level processes that I’ve been craving but didn’t know exactly how to find, get, or figure out on my own. It’s been a game-changer.

Within just a few weeks of completing my Director of Operations Certification, I was promoted to Chief of Staff for a senior executive at a Fortune 10 company. I also landed a 7-figure client to support in a part-time COO capacity! I easily got 3x back on my investment into this program within my first few months.

Joining the Director Of Operations Certification in Fall of 2018 was a no brainer. I was looking for confirmation in my professional experience and capabilities and a boost in confidence to work lead online teams. Natalie Gingrich has been an asset to my strategy and systems business as she has offered endless tips, encouragement, and motivation to move forward. During the program, she generously and unexpectedly trained me on what is now my signature service for all clients. 

Her wealth of knowledge, generosity, and caring heart (+candor) have set her apart in the online space. The most beneficial aspects to the program were the boundary, price, and scope setting. This information has really led to a much stronger conviction in the value of what I have to offer clients and given me a better idea on how much to charge. The cherry on top has been the attention she has given me for my individual professional endeavors and has provided an example of how I want to serve my clients.

Meet Natalie…

So it’s about time I introduced myself, right? I’m Natalie – Project Manager turned Director of Operations Certification Mentor. After spending 15 years in corporate at a Fortune 150 company, I dove into entrepreneurship leveraging my project management certification and skills for high-level influencers in the online and small business worlds.

As much as I love streamlining and executing projects for 7-figure business owners, I’m definitely a Change-the-World kind of gal. And what I saw in that world was a ton of super capable women whose skill sets were not leveraged and whose natural tendency toward leadership wasn’t acknowledged. With my background, experience, and contacts, I knew I could change that for the women who are ready for the kind of mentorship I offer.

I spend my business life on stages and in high-level masterminds cultivating relationships with the influencers that need the exact kinds of support you learn in my DOO Certification program. Through the conversations I have with these 6 and 7-figure business owners, I’ve learned what their teams need most and created my program based on the most marketable and sustainable skills in the industry right now.

I am a no-nonsense, sports-loving, working mama who takes no excuses and will push you to be your best self everyday…and then give you the highest of high fives with every win! (Just ask my kids!)

Frequently Asked Questions:

How is this program different than an OBM certification?

OBM certifications are about how to “get stuff done” as an implementer. A director of operations (DOO) is an executive level role that serves an an integrator of strategy. A DOO understands the vision, creates the plan, and leads a team to execute that strategized plan. While they are both leadership roles, the DOO role is a progression from the OBM role.

If I’m already an OBM, is this program for me?

Unlike an OBM, DOO’s utilize the expertise of the business owner or marketing director to guide the strategy. The DOO position is an executive level role that is a progression from the OBM role. This certification will allow an OBM to level up your client base so you can move toward a business model with fewer clients and more profit.

How much time do I need to commit to this program on a weekly basis?

I advise all members to block out 1-2 hours per week to consume and implement the weekly content and curriculum, an additional 90 minutes for our weekly strategy session.

Does this program teach how to start an Operations business?

This program is not designed for a beginner. It is for established business owners who are ready to take their already-successful business to the next level.

Do you have a program syllabus I can see?
What's the difference between a certification and a course?

A course does not have any criteria to join and complete, and it is also usually self-paced. A certification has a beginning and end date, and there is also criteria to join or complete the program.

Can I buy this program for a team member?

Absolutely! It’s so important for business owners to support their team members, especially if they love your business as much as you do. Just make sure they’re ready for the leap too!

What’s the investment for the program?

The beta round of the program is $2,997. There are also 2 payment plans available: 3 payments of $1097 OR 6 payments of $577. The price will double in the next round.

Do you have a cheaper DIY version instead?

The massive value in this program exists in the customized mentoring for you and your business. While the content is uniform for all members, the way you utilize it and implement it into your life and business is highly personalized. There is no way to effectively DIY that portion of the program.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

This is a highly-vetted program and my team and I will not enroll a member that is not a perfect fit. To that end, there is no money-back or refund in place as it is highly unnecessary considering the program parameters for entry.
