Virtual Assistant Services
The longer I serve as a Virtual Assistant, the more blessed I am to develop my skills and gain a deeper understanding of online entrepreneurship as a whole – all while providing a valuable service to you all as my clients and making a decent income that allows for time with my son and daughter, two American Bulldogs, occasional evenings with my volleyball league, and - OF COURSE - the ability to keep the Sabbath Holy! That said, my hours are Monday-Thursday and my rates are humble yet honor the time and knowledge that goes into each project I am blessed to serve in!
