More About Me and How I Can Help Your Business
Becoming a VA is a thought I've had for a while. It was always my dream to work with ambitious people that are proud of their product and passionate about the work they do.
Thanks to my sales job in London I got familiar with startups and young companies in general, following their journeys to becoming successful businesses. What prompted me to think more closely about becoming a VA was the fact that a lot of the business owners I worked with were just so incredibly busy, so... worn out. They'd already pick up the phone sounding stressed and often struggled to meet given deadlines - even sending back a signed contract could take a few weeks.
Simple tasks, right? Easy tasks. But if you are a business owner yourself you probably know that there are certain things that sit on your to-do list for days that slowly turn into weeks. Constantly at the back of your mind, stressing you out, making you feel like you're drowning.
Your customers and business partners all have one thing in common: they don't like to wait and may go find someone else to collaborate with or buy some other companies' products or services, one that replied to their email immediately. The world is fast-moving and there are a lot of demands. It's not possible for one person to meet all of them and still do a good job at what they deliver. Yes, they want to write a blog post a week, engage with their audience on social media, and respond to emails within 24h, of course, they do, but they don't have time for all the work that comes with those things. Whatever it may be for you, I'm sure there are tasks you just don't get to in your busy entrepreneur life.
That's where your Virtual Assistant comes in. It is so important that you have the headspace to focus on growing your company, on networking and building, producing, inventing... But you can't just forget about the mundane tasks, someone needs to do those, too, as they are part of your business and part of the journey to the top.
Let me help you take some work off your shoulders and give you back the time you need for the things you truly enjoy doing.
The way I approach life is with a healthy portion of laughter, hard work, ambition, and respect for everyone I meet and their dog. I'm happiest when I get to spend the day working in a coffee shop, traveling, reading, or cooking. I can't get enough of learning new things, so it's a good thing the world never runs out of things to teach.
I was born and raised in Switzerland and started off my career working as a Receptionist and was soon promoted to Assistant Front Office Manager at a Business Hotel while getting my degree in Business, Hospitality, and Tourism. So with my very first job I was already in the middle of caring for people, assisting them, giving them the best possible experience, and doing paperwork, data entry, and back-office work in between.
After four years at the Hotel, I decided to move to London, UK where I got a job working in sales at a publishing house. This was one of the coolest jobs I have ever had and the one that made me decide I wanted to be a VA.
After living in sunny Florida for a couple of years, I now live in Wisconsin with my husband and our three fur babies, working with clients from all over the world.
