Beyond Helpful!

As someone who recently decided to pursue a career as a VA, I was thrilled to discover your podcast! The bulk of my experience as and “administrative assistant” comes from parenting 3 ambitious kids - alongside volunteering in my “free” time. Your podcast has so far enlightened me to a whole new world of resources! That, and your encouraging spirit is contagious. Working my way through ALL of your podcasts because, why not?! Thank you for sharing!
