I would love to introduce myself and let you know why I love what I do.
I am married with 2 boys – James (13) and Myles (6). I started my own business because I needed a major shift in my work/life balance when James started school. The realisation that I suddenly had so many school holidays on and not wanting James to be attending camps every day, I wanted to be able to spend time with him.
As with most new business owners, I wasn’t sure what to do and where to start. However, I had the benefit of over 20 years of admin and of helping my then employers with the start up of their own small businesses. The biggest hurdle was to decide what I wanted to do and what I could do… It was then that it occurred to me that my expertise lay in all aspects of admin and small business…
Hence I started my own business ‘Assisting U 2 Connect’, which became ‘Assisting U Virtually’ and which has more recently been branded to Expert VA Global.
Although as with all businesses, it was slow to start off, but it has given me the flexibility to be with my gorgeous sons, hubby, friends and family as well as looking after my clients and my business.
With all my dedication and passion for my business and clients, my business has grown to work with a variety of startup and small business owners globally.
I have become a speaker, educating audiences not only about ‘Outsourcing’ and ‘Micro-Management’, but also about having confidence in yourself to move your business to the next level. I am so excited that I am also a co-author of 5 business, as well as being the author of 1 business book and I am finalising 2 other business books currently.
Not only was I lucky enough to be the host of a fortnightly segment ‘VA Biz News’ on My Business Help Radio program, but I was also the co-host of The Business Woman radio program with Amanda Rose. This led to the most amazing opportunity of all for me, which was to host my own radio program ‘the Small Business Show’ – which was an amazing success and which I will be re-launching soon via the internet.
It has been exciting last year for me and my family having moved to London and this has meant the expansion of my business to include not only Sydney, Australia but now London, UK…. I have clients globally and it is a very exciting time for me.
Creating TIME and stopping STRESS is the #1 passion for me to help you with in your business.
I look forward to helping you.
