About 3 years ago my Mom asked me a question “isn’t there someone you can talk to about what you want to be when you grow up?”. That question, although a little tongue and cheek, was just the right question I needed to be asked…because who to ask it too was the one question I did know the answer to.
Going back to a time before facebook was the powerful research tool that it is today, I was involved in a wonderful online forum for Mom Entrepreneurs, I spent countless hours searching for answers trying to discover how I could be one too! It was in that group that I found there was a coach who would indeed be the exact person to help me answer that funny little question from my Mom: What did I want to be when I grew up? She helped me realize that I already knew, I just needed confirmation, I wanted to be a Virtual Assistant!
Today marks two important dates, FIRST, it’s the day I became a Mom, my amazing son was born 13 years ago today! And second, after 10 years of being a Mom I was able to add “Entrepreneur” to my title. So here we are today 3 years later, and I’m the proud Mom to a 13 year old, a soon to be 11 year old and a 3 year old business!
So why did I end up knowing that I wanted to be a Virtual Assistant? I had spent all my career in the corporate world providing professional administrative support; working for Managers, Engineers, Financial Planners, Vice President’s and CEO’s in everything from large manufacturing companies to small businesses. While my experience and skills in corporate allowed me to help support many wonderful people to succeed at their jobs, what it didn’t allow me to do was stay home with my children or be able to directly impact other women who also wanted to work from home as well.
I have a passion for Direct Sales, I even wrote about growing up in Direct Sales, and even though I LOVE the sisterhood of Direct Sales I realized that the way I could best serve this profession was by taking my administrative skills and sharing them with those who, like you, are successfully building their own businesses in Direct Sales. My gift for administrative support would allow these women to focus on more of what they do best, without worrying about all the rest.
If you are one of the many amazing women who start a business in Direct Sales or Network Marketing it’s because you know that hands down it is one of the BEST ways to start your own business. However, what I found missing for many Superstars in Direct Sales is the back office, day-to-day, professional administrative support that most of the managers, leaders, and executives in the “corporate” world have to help support and manage a large part of their day to day activities.
Think about it…most executives have professional administrative support, to help them get ALL they have to do done in the course of their busy day. YOU are no different! Having a trusted, professional, administrative support system in place will help you SHINE like the Superstar you are in your business….and THAT is why The Golden Rule VA is what I want to be when I grow up! To have a bigger impact on the profession that I respect, so that YOU can focus on sharing your business, growing your team, hosting parties, and sharing YOUR gift while I support you by sharing mine!
Stop struggling, trying to do it all yourself, reach out and gain the vital and strategic support you need to do all that you want and need to get done in your Direct Sales business…I’m here to help you SHINE!
