My journey started in 2014 when I started working for a Canadian Immigration Company doing research and social media management for them. As a newbie, I had no idea that I was a Social Media Manager. All I knew was that I was earning from being on my phone. I was on my phone all the time anyways. Why not earn from it I thought. I then decided to dig a little more into what it is that I am doing and how I can improve my skills. It was then that I realized that Virtual Assistants was really a “thing”. And the journey began…
That contract ended in 2015 and I was not totally sure of where to go and what to do to get more clients so I went back into the corporate “brick & mortar” world until a few clients came my way here and there.
Research then became a big part of my days and nights until I figured out how to really find my way around the VA World.
During my research I have had to take some paid coaching from some of the best in the business. Some of who are Julia O Barnes, Joan Wright Good, The Six Figure Chick, following the Women CEO Project on social media and a lot more.
In 2018, I was laid off from my job on New Years day. I moved to another call center. During my pregnancy, I was diagnosed with slipped disc and pinched nerve. That was hell! I had a horrible time even doing the things that we take for granted everyday like using the restroom on your own.
I remember this second company I was having a hard time. It came down to making a decision. Was I gonna stick to their work schedule or be forced to leave and be able to attend my physical therapy once a week. Yeah! I was given a hard time with my ailments and having the time to leave when I need to.
It was then that I decided to take their “suggestion” and leave. I was a part time V.A. all this time and decided then in 2019 that I was going to let Virtual Assistance be my full time lifestyle.
I say lifestyle because that is exactly what it is. I had to learn balance and flexibility, responsibility and accountability to myself.
Since I went full time, I have never looked back and it has been the most rewarding time of my life. I now get the chance to spend more time with my family instead of travelling for 6 hours a day for a 10 hour shift. Now I am able to start giving others an opportunity to earn as well.
I am ready to help anyone who wants the same freedom I have.
