Starting an online service based business is no easy task.
I know, cause I've been there, done that, and have enough 2AM coffee-stained yoga pants (my unofficial uniform) to prove it.
You see, all too often I take on clients who are on a non-stop train to defeat. They hop on the exhausting hamster-wheel of content creation that always falls flat on their intended audience, forget that service is EVERYTHING while skipping the step that will actually get them results the quickest: building real, authentic relationships.
Sometimes, they undervalue their services by charging way-too-low rates, working way too many hours just to get within an earshot of the income they desire but then can’t figure out how to crawl themselves out of the very deep hole they’ve built.
And then others are so scared trying to figure out how to find a client let alone what the heck they’re going to do to earn the business, service the business and keep the business. They worry they don’t have the skills to make this big, amazing dream a reality (newsflash: they do.) Oh yeah, and then there’s the entirely different piece of figuring out how to actually run YOUR business.
So, when I say I can help you to create the business and life of your dreams as a done-for-you service provider it’s because I’ve already done it myself.
Think you’re not ready? Oh stop it, YOU ARE!
So how did I go from Corporate America to Badass Entrepreneur?
Here’s my story…
One tear-filled day, I took charge of what I wanted my career and life to look like. I was over the corporate grind and 24/7 emails. Mostly, I was over the stress and anxiety of NOT being present in my baby son’s life. Maybe you've been there and can relate? Or maybe you're there right now and that's why you're reading this.
I started my business so that I could live life on MY terms. So that I could be with my son full-time and replace my corporate income working from home part-time. I worked my butt off, but on the other side was a sweet reward NOT just more work.
Have you ever been in a situation where the stars aligned and everything you asked the universe for came back to you in spades? When I opened my first Virtual Assisting business, that’s exactly what happened.
Within eight days of starting the business I signed my first client.
Two weeks later, I left my corporate job.
Another two weeks and I had the clients (and income) to replace my 9-5 salary.
Within months, I added contractors to my team, took on more clients and scaled to 10K+ months.
Most importantly, I was finally the present, engaged mother that I so deeply wanted to be.
After transitioning from a Virtual Assistant to an Online Business Manager with a team of 8 Virtual Assistants working for me, I felt pulled to create a bigger impact.
Now, I help women start and scale done-for-you online businesses in weeks instead of years.
And the most amazing part is that I’ve helped my clients to:
Leave their 9-5s for good
Create businesses that allow them to stay-at-home with their babies
Land their first clients, fill their rosters and start waiting lists
Hit their first 1K, 5K and 7K months
Replace their full-time corporate salaries with part-time work
Launch brand new offers + services
Start businesses that work for their lives and not the other way around
- It’s 100% possible to create an online business that brings in profit + impact all from the comfort of your home, allowing you to live life in your terms.
- Yoga pants are an acceptable work uniform.
- You don’t have to trade income for happiness, you can actually have both.
