The Long Of It
I began my decade long career as a Virtual Assistant in November 2007. Taking the advice of a friend and mentor, I created my company in one weekend. Due to my powerful networking skills, within 2 months I was able to leave my job as Vice President of a finance company.
In 2012, tragedy struck, taking my best friend with it. In the following months, I spiraled downhill into a deep depression. Throwing myself into the animal rescue we started, I all but shut down my VA company to care for over 30 rescue animals in my home.
During my time in rescue, I was able to save and rehome over 100 lost and lonely animals.
Within a few months, I pulled myself out of the depression, and made some major life changes, including closing the rescue and leaving my husband of 12 years to start life anew.
Starting over almost completely from scratch in 2013, I earned a whopping $15,000 in sales that year. The lowest ever aside from my first year in business.
But I didn’t let that stop me. The following year I made more than I ever had…$86,000 and my business is now a 6-figure company. I have my sights set on 7-figures within the next 5 years.
THE NITTY GRITTY
Over the years, I have worked with a myriad of clients and learned a wide variety of skills, eventually specializing in all things strategic: Online Business Management, Telesummit, Funnel and Launch strategies as well as Podcast Management.
My skills and experience have earned me the title, The Entrepreneur’s Secret Weapon™.
Utilizing my skills and experience, I have created cutting-edge training and coaching programs to help other women live a dream lifestyle working from home as a Virtual Professional.
