In 2005, I was searching for the next chapter in work that I loved and was passionate about. I had owned several companies and managed my husband’s company and knew I would never be an employee again. I wanted a mobile business so my husband and I were free to travel.
Serendipity connected me to AssistU where I learned about Virtual Assistance, which I had never heard of! I trained to become a certified Virtual Assistant and opened my own business, Works of Wonder Virtual Assistance, fifteen years ago. I never imagined I would become quite so tech savvy and bloom with these newfound skills! As long as I have an Internet connection, I am able to work from any location. I love what I do and whom I do it with!
Our dream of learning to sail and adopting the live-aboard lifestyle has been a process of examining our lives and identifying priorities. We became debt-free; we downsized our living space; we’ve taken sailing lessons; we’ve connected with others living the dream; we learned by trial and error; we scoured the Internet and found our ‘boat’ for ‘sail’. Next step: plunging into refitting her!
I’d love to share the possibility of Virtual Assistance with others seeking to find the freedom and mobility being a VA creates. And if you’re already living the dream—let’s talk!
