Hello, my name is Tyra Pickett, Founder / Owner of Pickett Fence Virtual Services, LLC and a Certified Online Business Manager®.
You are here because you love your business and you need someone who understands your industry and love it just as much as you. As a small-business owner myself, I am as concerned with your business’ success as I am with my own. You could say my success depends on your success, and I want my clients to succeed!
As an Online Business Manager, I partner with Construction Business Owners, Coaches & Consultants who are ready to scale their business and take it to the next level. Hiring an Online Business Manager can seem like a scary idea at first, but it really is the best decision you can make for your business. Whether you are buried under a mountain of paperwork, want to double your income, or just want to spend a few more hours with your family, I can help with that. As a business owner, your main responsibility is to focus on growing your business. I love to automate tasks, implement systems, and manage projects & teams.
I am a Certified Online Business Manager with over 23 years’ experience in the Corporate world ranging from Construction, General Contracting, Business Management, Architecture, Government and Legal, I am a force to be reckoned with! I have more than 12 years of experience combined in the Architectural and Construction industry working as Assistant Project Manager, Construction Manager and Construction Administrator. I have applied my skills in a variety of projects throughout the U.S. and as far away as Guam, Alaska, and Japan, ranging from $11K to $550 Million, including but not limited to, Commercial and Industrial Buildings, Airports, K-12, Higher Education, Healthcare, Corrections, State and Local Government Contracts, Federal Government, etc. With my many years of experience in construction, I am well versed in LEED, Design/Build, Preconstruction, General Contracting, ESCO and Performance-Based Contracting. I am connected with many peers and advisers in the construction industry, making me privy to all the advances construction has made.
Prior to working in the construction industry, I served as a Paralegal with emphasis in Criminal, Domestic, Real Estate and Civil law working for both private and government firms.
As your Online Business Manager (OBM), I help remove your headaches. Clients work with me to create high-performance businesses and free themselves from the frustration of trying to figure it out or do it all. As your OBM, I make sure that the right THINGS get done at the right TIME, by the right PEOPLE in the right WAY. I’m a business owner’s virtual BFF.
I am a God-fearing Christian woman, a proud Army wife, and doting mother of the most beautiful kids. Yes, I’m a little biased, but aren’t we all when it comes to our little ones? I believe in honesty, loyalty and accountability. I have a strong moral fiber and believe that consistency and being ethical makes a big impact on whether or not you will be successful. In my free time, I am a professional photographer, foodie, love my church, movie fanatic and techie. I love creating new memories with my family and I love to travel.

My mission is to help overwhelmed Construction Trade businesses and Coaches (Business and Life) create the systems and automation you need to delegate, achieve business growth, increase productivity, and free up your valuable time by providing Online Business Management. By doing so, you can focus on growing your business and projects successfully. 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.
