While being a full-time mother to my 5 children, I was also a part-time, self-employed business owner in different industries: AVON Sales, cake decorating, residential cleaning and painting and paper hanging businesses.
After the children were in school, it became necessary that I acquire full-time employment with benefits and eventually worked for a major health insurance company in the Sales/Marketing department as an Administrative Assistant. This company embraced technology with open arms which allowed me to become familiar with computers, the internet, and any and all software programs this department used to enhance the sales team and their productivity.
I loved being an administrative assistant, but the desire to own my own business again grew stronger with each passing year. I began researching how I could blend my administrative experience and love of technology with being a business owner. That search lead to AssistU and their training program for Virtual Assistants. With my experience as a business owner, an assistant in the corporate world, and training from AssistU, I could now use advancing technology to blend my desires and hung out my VA shingle in 1998!
In the beginning my clients were consultants and those who had a corporate background which fit well with my corporate training. Then along the way I learned more about personal coaches (Life / Business / Health and Wellness coaching). It is no secret that when a person engages with a coach and is committed to make changes with support from their coach, amazing things happen for them.
Coaches and Virtual Assistants have a lot in common. We both help those who are stuck, overwhelmed, maybe even feeling paralyzed, preventing them from taking action.
My mission: To use my calming, steadfast and structured approach, to assist Coaches with the “trees” of running their business, allowing them to see their “forest” again!
