My truth about what makes a fantastic mentor

Thursday, April 27, 2017



I've been mentoring VAs since 2011, and it's been one of the most satisfying and fulfilling roles I've had in the industry bar none.

Last month I ran a kind of mentorship workshop, to see how I could help people in a group environment and then again helping people one-on-one. The first session ran for 3 hours, and everyone was high energy throughout, it was awesome, and I took a few clips for you guys to show you kind of what mentorship with me looks like ;-) They're pretty raw, and I tried to select the most 'generic' ones so I hope you find them helpful, but please know, I didn't intend to do this, it was supposed to be private so excuse the poor quality sound and visual, but I hope the essence and the 'realness' of what I want to share with you shines through.

How To Finally Remove The Roadblocks To Success As A Virtual Assistant

Tuesday, March 07, 2017



When I started out as a virtual assistant in 2005, it took me 2 years of learning - self teaching, living hand to mouth and wondering if I should give up. This was before the days of social media, Facebook and Twitter didn't exist, it was before the days of drag and drop content management systems like Wordpress or services like Strikingly, before the days of all-in-one business systems like Adobe Business Catalyst, or Rainmaker, and services that allow you to produce beautiful graphics like a pro-designer in minutes such as Canva, also did not exist - Zip - Nada.

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...

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.
