Hi, I'm Brenda Violette, Founder and CEO of Violette Business Services, a business management company that partners with entrepreneurial woman who have built a multiple 6-7 figure business and are still stuck in all the "DOING" in the daily operations and marketing management of their business.
Working on their own, they've reached a plateau and are unable to grow to higher levels of revenue, stability, and lifestyle balance in their business. They're at the point where day-to-day responsibilities are sucking the life out them, leaving no space for creative energy and time to focus on how to grow the business.
This is the perfect juncture for these overwhelmed business owners to step out of daily operations and marketing management and focus on leading and growing their business as CEO.
I like to think of myself as a curator – a curator of space – my clients' space. My clients experience new freedom as I step in and begin managing, leading and transforming their business into a stronger, more profitable and sustainable business – a legacy business.
I’m an online business manager and I help 6-7 figure women entrepreneurs and business owners get out of the daily grind of managing their business so that they can create more revenue and enjoy more freedom in their business and lives.
…my clients would tell you that my super power is helping them to grow a business they can love again!
My mission is to help women entrepreneurs and business owners realize their dream of owning a business that supports their dream of freedom in terms of time, money, relationship, and purpose.
I serve women by supporting them through one of the most challenging parts of being a woman business owner; successfully getting out of the day-to-day management of their business so that they can focus on growing their business from Visionary CEO leadership role.
I help women entrepreneurs grow a successful business and have a life too!
My passion and consummate management skills spring from over 30 years of working with highly successful offline companies and high-level managers in executive administrative and business management roles. In 2008 I transferred this deep knowledge to support successful online businesses.
In 2008, I lost my corporate “JOB” following a corporate reorganization and haven't looked back. Like many people during this time in history, I began to evaluate what was truly important to me in my personal life and business career.
I never pined to be an entrepreneur, but was definitely feeling the pain of hitting that ceiling in what I was able to learn and accomplish inside of a corporate company structure.
The very fact that I was so successful up to that point came from a gnawing inner drive to learn more and accomplish more. I truly understand the internal challenges of being a woman and feeling stuck and hitting the ceiling in my business goals.
Since 2008, I applied that same drive to learn and accomplish by furiously reading everything about entrepreneurship and building online business models, investing thousands of dollars in training programs as well as coaching and mentoring.
I created a business online that serves my favorite clients: entrepreneurial, purposeful women who are changing the world through their unique and exciting offerings.
I developed a premium online business management package which provides deep transformation and amazing results for select clients who are already in the multiple 6-7 figures and are ready to leverage their knowledge and skills to grow but are challenged by doing it all alone. They are still stuck in the "DOING" management part of their business.
It’s time for these brilliant visionaries to move out of managing their business! It’s time for them to fully step into their CEO role and lead the business to the next level.
My direct service offering provides high-level management services that include strategic planning, day-to-day operations management, team development and management, project management, product development and delivery services, marketing implementation, and financial and metrics assessment and reporting.
I grew up in Oklahoma and moved my family to Connecticut 28 years ago to pursue a management role for a manufacturing company in Hartford, Connecticut. We've lived in Connecticut ever since!
I am married, we have a son and the most adorable grandson (I know all grandparents say that!).
In my free time, I enjoy reading, good movies, spending time with family and friends and serving in our church.
My skills and experience in business springs from 35 years of working as an employee in business industries and since 2008 working with clients in my own business, Violette Business Services, LLC. My gifts for organization, administration and management are God given. All of the years of working with different sizes of businesses, executives at all levels, various roles starting with a production clerk right out of business school, executive assistant roles, project manager roles, chief of staff for a major health care company, leading numerous teams and projects refined those gifts so that I may serve in the administration and business management capacity almost anywhere that I find myself. My motto all of those years was and continues today – never stop growing, learning and refining myself and skills.
I’ve worked with many industries through the years; Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Investment Management, Healthcare, and currently as an Solorprenuer. As an Online Business Manager I work with high level women entrepreneurs who have built online businesses that primarily serve their target market as coaches, mentors, trainers, speakers, and associations.
In those earlier years working as an employee I never dreamed that a day would come in my life when I would work for myself. That day came in 2008 when I lost my corporate cubicle to a company restructuring. My lifelong motto of never stop learning and refining my skills turned into a remaking of myself and career. Now…it just seems natural – who knew!
I invest thousands of dollars each year on training programs that grow my skills as entrepreneur and service provider in this new frontier; online business space. I'm an avid reader and learner. I am a Certified Online Business Manager (IAOBM), Certified Online Marketing Manager, Online Marketing Certified Professional (OMCP) Trained Practioner with Market Motive, Certified Social & Community Specialist (Digital Marketer), Certified Email Marketing Specialist (Digital Marketer), Certified Content Marketing Specialist (Digital Marketer). My coach is Christine Kane who introduced me to the concept of being the CEO of YOU. I love that!
The primary difference you will find with me is that I’m extremely focused on one thing and one thing only, and that is serving my clients in the role as Online Business Manager and Integrator in their business. I do not try to be the one solution to my clients as a “Jill of All Trades.” The value that I bring to my clients is the ability to see and keep focused on the big picture while managing all the details. As you already know it’s not possible to stay focused on higher level work and be buried in the lower level tasks at the same time. My clients invest in me to create higher level results for their business. We pay the team for the execution of the actual tasks. I have been known to roll up my sleeves up when needed and I have the skill set when a team member is unavailable during urgent times. I partner with no more than 2 clients annually.
My super power is “Pushing Through to Get Things Done”. I simply love accomplishing stuff! When an issue or project is presented my brain kicks into automatic gear to create a solution. The gears begin churning through how to organize (putting information in order), pulling on past experiences that may be applied, breaking down to make implementation simple and then finally there is a internal drive to create a system so that the solution can be repeated with minimal time and energy next time. I like to clear the decks so that I can focus on new stuff. I can’t help it – it’s how I’m wired.

Brenda demonstrates incredible attention to detail and ensures quality completion on even the most complex projects.
Of course, who hasn’t? The entrepreneurial journey can be a satisfying one, but every day is filled with the challenges of growing as a leader, business owner, and service provider to the next level of accomplishment. Leading and managing your own business is not for the fate of heart. Like almost every business owner that I’ve had the pleasure to listen to their stories on being on this journey, I too have worked with the wrong clients, over delivered, under valued and priced myself, sacrificed too much of my families’ time and got out of balance. All vital lessons learned for moving forward. Those experiences grow us. I'm a quick learner, lol.
I work best with personalities that are open & honest, fair minded, trusting, grateful and anxiously ready for me to step in and help them transform their business. The relationship between a business owner and her business manager is critical to the health of the business.
I do not work well with personalities who has difficulty trusting, delegating, micro-managing and communicating open and honestly. The relationship between a business owner and her business manager is critical to the health of the business.
I work from my home office in Middletown, Connecticut. My hours are 9-6pm Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday. I do not work on weekends, unless traveling with clients or pre-arranged due to product launches. I do everything I can to ensure that launches and other projects and tasks are planned out and delivered so that the team and business is not in reactive mode.
Clients have blocked time on my calendar that I focus on their business. We will discuss your best times of day for you when we have our first On-Ramp VIP call.
I’m accessible to the team via Project Management Tool, email and Skype, throughout the day from 9-6 in order for me to not be the bottleneck for them to complete and stay engaged with their tasks.
I foster a long-term relationship with my clients by offering support, encouragement, integrity and peace of mind.
If you are asking do Online Business Manager services really work, the answer is Yes and No – depending.
If you have a proven business model that is generating multiple 6-7 figures in revenue (financially ready), your goal is to grow to higher levels and you are ready to turn loose of some control in your business to have more control (your mentally ready) and you're ready to stop struggling so hard to achieve your dream of a balance between your life and business (lifestyle ready) it's time for us to talk about your next steps. You must get out of day-to-day management or business growth will simply stay stuck!
Your business needs a Visionary and an Integrator to be successful, and you can’t be both for long and sustainable growth. As the Visionary, you need an Integrator to implement and drive your vision, and your Integrator needs you to lead the company's direction and strategize its future.
