I was a successful Executive Assistant working in the fashion industry; my husband had had two heart attacks and had been in poor health for many years. I was the primary breadwinner, and at the end of the month, my excellent corporate wage left us with nothing until the next pay. This was not a sustainable lifestyle.
The Virtual Assistant Project started, and I was my guinea pig. I quit my job and started working from home. Granted, the first 6 months were a shock, my final pay from the corporate world was dwindling, and I needed to make my business work. I went from bringing home 5k to $500 per month; the bills needed to be paid, which wouldn’t cut it. I refused to join job boards where you bid against others for work. JMJ – EA for a Day was a long-term business, so I needed to think strategically. I knew the bare minimum we needed each month to get by, to pay the rent and bills.
Fast forward to now, I’ve been in business since 2011 and have gone from $500 per week to 6 figures a year. I will share with you exactly how I did that, warts and all. We went from paying rent to owning our home on 1 acre of land and debt-free. Using the skills I learnt in being the first member, I’ve gone on to help others do better and be better.
The Virtual Assistant Project is about helping you achieve your potential and changing your lifestyle.
