I am a former wedding professional turned virtual assistant. After 10 years in the industry, working in both bridal, wedding planning and floral, and designing accessories, it was time for a change. I wanted a job that had more freedom, better hours, and allowed me to work from home. And while the pajamas are a huge perk, being able to work from anywhere, for clients I love, is the best experience in the world.
Getting into the wedding and creative industry isn’t easy. After 10 years, I have learned how hard it can be. Vendors want to work with people with experience, who know the industries they are in. They want people who can give them quality service, and work with them side by side.
Which is why I have created this course! I want to show you the tools you need to succeed. From the best applications to what your website needs to have on it, it’s in The Creative VA Academy.
One of my ah-ha moments was not only knowing my pricing but also knowing my value!
This course is jam-packed full of information, content, action steps, and examples!
The Creative VA Academy has definitely moved me forward in my VA business!
