• Give Yourself A Break

    Give Yourself A Break I became a virtual assistant over a year ago because I wanted freedom to be able to work from anywhere. My parents were elderly and in another state. I wanted the flexibility to take my work with me when I needed to tend to their needs. Last June my dad passed away. He was in a rehab facility and, due to Covid, we were not allowed to visit him.

  • It's Not About YOU!

    It's Not About You! An engaging website that will solve your audiences' problem is key to selling your services online. The days of having an electronic brochure as your website are gone.
