VA Services - The Learning Effect

VA Services

At this time I am NOT accepting new clients because I am due with my first child in June (or maybe even sooner)! Once I return from "maternity leave", I will open up to taking on new clients again. Since this is my first child and I'm not sure how my life will change, I am unsure of when I will begin VA services again. 
If you are interested in working with me and want me to let you know when I return, please email me at

Are you looking for someone to take the things off your plate that you dread most about your business? Consider hiring a virtual assistant! I am offering virtual assistant (VA) services to help you focus on the things you love most about your business and take over those that you don't.
