What or who inspired you to start your business?
I was inspired by Kim Duke the Sales Diva, after a coaching call. I had tried several mlm type companies and wasn’t happy but knew I wanted to be in business for myself. She asked me what my passion was, and I told her I enjoyed admin. LOVED IT! She told me about being a Virtual Assistant.
What are your most popular products or services?
I just launched my business in spring of 2013 upon graduating through Red Deer College. I have found there are many in need of customer service assistance, email, phone and calendar support, as well as social media support.
What do you love most about what you do?
I love knowing that I am doing something I truly enjoy doing, and that I am helping people with the things that they don’t enjoy doing. I’m taking a weight off of their shoulders, enabling them to focus on doing their business.
How do you balance being a mom and entrepreneur?
I work around my children, which isn’t hard to do. I also am a home schooling mom, which I feel has made it even easier. People find that challenging to believe/understand, however, being a home school mom has really made my time my own.
What single piece of advice would you give moms starting their business?
Continue getting training! In various ways, whether learning a new program on your own, or by attending networking meetings. There are always new things and new ways to consider.
How do you relax?
I’m not great at relaxing, but either watching tv, hot bath, or going out to the mall for some retail therapy!
What place inspires you and why?
I love attending networking meetings and being around other like minded entrepreneurial women!
What is your biggest fear?
Not being successful doing something that I love!
What is your motto?
Not sure that I have one.
What motivates you?
Loving others and giving to them in any way that I can.
What makes you GO?
Being passionate about things. Also my family.
