My Story of How I Climbed Up!
I was 25 years old, it was time to be financially independent, I had literally $0 in the bank, and I was already dreading the idea of getting a full-time job.
Don't get me wrong. It's not that I didn't want to work. I just didn't want to be stuck in a stuffy office from 9am-5pm, working under a demanding boss, making $15 per hour for a company I didn't even have a passion for.
I had bigger dreams. I wanted to choose when and where I worked. I wanted to spend every holiday with my family and go on vacations without having to beg for the time off. I wanted to be financially secure. I wanted my life.
I was working for a church plant at the time as an administrative assistant, and they couldn’t offer me an office (so I had to work from home), nor could they offer me more than a stipend of $200 per month! I absolutely adored them and didn’t want to quit to get a full time job. I believed in their mission and that was more important to me than anything. But I had to pay the bills, too.
I was torn.
That's when it hit me...why can't I support multiple people in this way, keep my job with the church, and work for myself?
I didn't even think about it for another minute. I just went full steam ahead and started my virtual administrative support company. When I got my first client, the amazing feeling of success gave me the confidence I needed to continue.
I got so many clients that I was able to pay myself a six-figure salary! So I started booking oceanfront Airbnbs in Florida while sipping fruity drinks on the balcony with my laptop.
Once my business was up and running, people started reaching out to me for advice on how to start their own companies. I got so fired up by helping people start their business, that I decided to launch this online course to teach women the tips I've learned (and help them avoid the mistakes I've made!) while running my virtual administrative support business for the past 10 years.
