Meet Elizabeth Buckley-Goddard, AKA Lizzy. After running a successful online business, Lizzy turned down traditional employment to work as a virtual assistant. In just 16 months after specialising, she made $60K as a ConvertKit specialist.
In our VA Success Stories series, we interview successful virtual assistants to go behind the scenes of their business, find out how they got started, why they love their work, and more. Jamie Wissinger is a successful VA who balances her business with a full-time job, motherhood, and epilepsy.
Times have changed.
Gone are the days of long commutes, mind-numbing water cooler conversations and staying in the office until someone suggests ordering pizza for dinner.
The thing is, we live in a location-independent age. Team members can meet across continents with the help of video-conferencing tools like Skype, Zoom and Google Hangouts just as if they were in the same room. Cloud storage solutions like Drop Box and Google Drive mean you can access any document at any time from anywhere in the world. Email is the way we all communicate and it's here to stay.
In our VA Success Stories series we speak to successful virtual assistants to find out what worked for them and how they got to where they are now. Meet Megan Baker, AKA Meg K the VA. Just six months after launching her website, she was booked out and already ready to hire subcontractors.
