I am a Virtual Assistant (VA) who support businesses by offering digital marketing services, managing online communities and customizing WordPress sites.

As a VA, I found my niche and am offering my services to those who need it. I am obviously getting better at it and I am able to negotiate better deals.

I believe that I can make a difference with what I have, from where I am right now and I want to help those who are interested in starting and building a Virtual Assistant Business.

A few times I have been asked, "Can you help me get someone like you?" So, I decided to share my story and teach others who want to support businesses like me how to do same.

I run a FREE Virtual Assistant Business Class on Whatsapp (07012557342) and it also serves as a support system for those who love to support businesses. Class holds 9pm every Tuesday.
