Concerned Or Feeling Inadequate?

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

Hello you! I have an exciting announcement :-) If you're subscribed to my mailing list, first of all, thank you because You Rock, and second of all, you should now be getting an email in 'real-time' in future from my mates over at Feedio, who are kindly sending their RSS fairies to you with my posts. If you're like "oh no Michelle, I don't want these super awesome posts" ;-) - that's okay, no hard feelings you can simply hit unsubscribe, but if you like what you read, stick around, and the Feedio fairies will keep delivering.

Thank you! Michelle x  



One of the great things about what I do now, is that I've got over a decade of being in business for myself as a VA under my belt, and I've pretty much been through what a lot of other VAs go through when they're first starting out and growing their business.

How To Quit Your Job And Experience Financial Freedom In Under 3 Months

Tuesday, March 15, 2016



In February 2005 when I was 23, I was pretty fed up with several things, such as the daily commute to the city, the huge council tax bill, the ridiculously large mortgage that I would most likely be paying into my retirement and the sheer predictability of everything in my life. Does this sound familiar to you?

One day I came home to find my house had been robbed (that's the short version of the story) but when you have something like that happen it makes you sit down on your empty living room floor and think... I had problems – I wasn't happy, this was the kind of shock I needed to get me out of the trance state that was my daily existence. When I took a look at my problems, I could see the only way out would be to make a significant life change, I needed a break – but I was in no position to do that with my cost of living each month. I decided that in order to do this, I would need to get rid of my mortgage and my living expenses. Now this isn’t so easy in the UK, costs of living are high, and you need a steady job. So my only option was to dramatically reduce my living costs. This is when I decided I would have to take action and actually move in order to do this.

What To Do When Indecision Is Holding You Back

Wednesday, March 02, 2016



I replied to an email today from somebody who was feeling a little lost... She couldn't figure out what she wanted to do in life, where she wanted to live, had fears concerning what the best decision was for her, and this was having a knock on effect in other areas, like feeling overwhelmed about starting a business. She was at a crossroads in her life and didn't know which direction to take. She asked me if I had any suggestions or feedback I could throw her way that might help, so I replied with this...

The Benefits (And Consequences) Of Team Growth

Wednesday, February 17, 2016



I often get asked questions about team development, it seems like a daunting task and without a strategy in place for it, it really can be. Building a team makes good financial sense on paper. The opportunity in theory can provide all the good stuff we're looking for as business owners, but it also has several possible consequences in practical terms...

The Advice I Followed To Make Almost $20k in 3 Months

Monday, January 18, 2016



I'm so excited this week, I'm posting up an interview that I did with my mentor Yaro Starak, who I've been following since 2005 (when I started my VA business and he started blogging). In 2010 I'd built up a really great VA Business, back then I was generating around $19,000 a month gross in client business, selling my VA services, but around that time I was also getting a lot of questions from budding and more seasoned virtual assistants who were looking to find out how I was doing it.
