Well hold onto your hats! Cause we are taking you on an adventure with endless destinations.
Mikayla and Roxanne are a mother/daughter virtual assistant team! Our virtual business came to light on October 20th 2018. We are going through the aches, pains and accomplishments of setting up our virtual assistant business.

Well things seem to be progressing and the business set up is coming along! We have been utilizing the coaching and mentoring sessions at Everything Olds. These sessions have been very beneficial in providing us some food for thought that we had not quite thought of yet.
I think for both of us, this decision to go into business for ourselves has been exhilarating, challenging and terrifying all rolled into a nice neat package.
We have recently joined the Olds Chamber of Commerce, ordered our business cards and attended an Olds Entrepreneurial night. This was a great night to network with other business owners and learn from others.
We have a few leads on some potential clients, “YIPPEE!!!!” then the real work begins.
We are also presently working on our pricing packages, executive summary template and always updating and posting to our Social Media accounts.
I guess to answer the main question above, “Are we doing the right thing?”. Yes, we certainly are and I couldn’t have asked a better person to be my partner. We banter back and forth, tease and challenge each other with all that we do, but we still have fun doing it.
If someone asked us this question last year, we would have said, “huh?”, “A what?”, LOL!
The last 6 months or so we now have a better handle on a definition that we can share.
A Virtual Assistant(VA) is a professional administrative assistant that is highly skilled; qualified to promptly provide administrative; technical and creative business services.
As a client you need to ask yourself what is more beneficial to your business’s growth and productivity? I need to utilize my time better, and possibly hire a VA to address the day to day items that are stunting my businesses growth.
What is your definition of a VA? What do you need from a VA?
