Because It Takes More Than Talent!


Ashburn, United States


“I shall neither fail nor falter; I shall not weaken or tire...give me the tools and I will finish the job.” Winston Churchill I'm going to be honest with you guys which, quit frankly, is not in my best interest. However, I'd like to ask you to keep reading before declining my proposals. Instead of listing all my skills here and to try to baffle you with everything I know, I'm going to do this a little differently for a change. Although, not all the jobs I've done in the past have been with oDesk, you will be able to get a clear ... morestatement on whatever you need to know about my skills by contacting me directly. I'd like to find professional clients, serious about their business. I'm an independent contractor, I live For and From working online and I'm in business to help your business succeed. Satisfactory work, honesty, friendliness, professionalism and always eager and quick to learn new skills. I set my own hours and work for as many clients as I want without sacrificing quality or expectations. My goal is to build a US Based virtual assistance business. I recently hired my sister to help grow and achieve my goals in the near future. I'm a business woman and you can turn to me with confidence with all your business needs and tasks. I'm not afraid to give you honest advice. My goal is to help improve & expand your business. In return, I appreciate any skills you may want to teach me to increase the value of our work relationship and your profits. I'm looking for long-lasting relationships. Be it full-time, part-time or on an as-needed basis. I'm also looking for reliable, trustworthy and respectable clients. I make a full time living working my own business for small business owners, entrepreneurs and everyone in between who needs a helping hand. Hiring me (and my business partner) gives you the ability to grow your business by utilizing our skills, time and suggestions. It's off great essence that I do my job right in order to make a living and to take care of my family. If you want quality, professional and reliable services, feel free to contact me any time. All well, you may say, but what do you have to offer? Right! Okay, fair question, here are the answers. I started out as a general Virtual Assistant in 2008. Through trial and error and a few awesome clients who helped me and educated me, I have grown to be way more than "just" a virtual assistant. I have created my own business, I make a comfortable, full time living working online for professional, serious clients on a daily basis. I recently added my sister to the equation, she's my right hand and business partner. Together we provide quality and unique work experiences for our clients. My descriptions and job proposals may sometimes seem a little different, that's what I want... We are different, we know what we want and what our clients expect. We realize these expectations and work hard to establish long lasting business relationships with the right clients. Services provided are versatile. I'll list some of the main categories but remember that this is just the tip of the iceberg of what we can do for you. Virtual assistance, ASSISTANCE in: administrative tasks, Wordpress, data entry, research, mobile marketing and web design, HTML/XHMTL, email handling, social media marketing, web maintenance/setup/management, SEO etc. Like I said just a short list of general services we can provide you, this list is far from being complete. Having that said, there is nothing we can't do... Oh, you don't think so? Well, here's why I'm saying this; I have grown from not knowing anything about online work to being a general VA to be a WP web design assistant, mobile marketing/SEO and social media assistant and more... I didn't learn this from taking jobs I was an expert in. I learned this from those clients who are willing to take my skills and their skills and put them together, as a team. With that you'll create a personalized set of skills and assets for your business. “You can't do today's job with yesterday's methods and be in business tomorrow” Teamwork, communication, honesty and definitely communication (yes I mentioned that twice), are key to establishing a long lasting, profitable work relationship. less
