My name is Melissa Smith and after being an Executive Assistant for over 15 years I went out on my own to start a virtual assistant company. I quickly realized that small business owners didn’t have the right knowledge of VA’s and even less about how to hire the right one. That’s when I changed my focus to staffing and consulting.
Through my experience I discovered that no matter what kind of business that I was working for people didn’t feel like they had enough time in the day. I change all that by finding them the right VA. There is a system and a method to stop the madness. It is my desire to see business owners thrive and stay competitive and VA’s allow them do just that without the high costs of hiring employees.
Over the years I have worked with a variety of executives, deans, and coaches. Each client gets their own personalized service, as will you. I pride myself on being the best at what I do and never over promise and under deliver. I define my success by yours – how much more time you have been able to devote to your business, how often you are complimented on good work, your efficiency and productivity levels, and your referrals.
When I’m not helping clients I enjoy reading, writing, and running. I’ve participated in several Tough Mudders, ran a couple of half-marathons. In 2017, I’ll be traveling to 12 countries in 12 months!
I am glad to recommend Melissa Smith and her services. She helped connect me to two remarkably talented virtual assistants recently. Melissa took the time to learn what I was looking to achieve, screen for those qualities, and then stay connected through the contracting process. Better still, she followed up to make sure things were working to my satisfaction a month later. Great service.Thanks Melissa!Sarah Boxx
Melissa’s ability to figure out what her clients need and then provide support in that area is amazing. As an assistant, she can zero in on how to help her clients in ways that leave them feeling as if a weight was lifted from their shoulders. As a matchmaker to V.A.’s and clients, she knows the exact questions to ask, and then precisely what to seek when pairing the two. This produces a symbiotic relationship between V.A. and client that allows both to feel as if they are fulfilling their personal missions. Anyone able to experience working with Melissa should feel lucky—she is truly gifted at her profession.Emily Rose
After searching for a VA for two years, I decided to hire Melissa to help with the search and matching process. Previously, I had false starts with people who thought they wanted to work as a VA, but changed their mind, and with people who didn’t have the skill level my business needed. Melissa’s process was very thorough and professional. We started with an intake meeting, discussing not only my business needs, but also my work habits, communication preferences and general business culture. Melissa worked quickly to provide three highly qualified prospects, which she coached me through assessing. Once I chose a VA, she assisted with contract completion, project coaching and engaged throughout the first 30 days to ensure the VA match was successful. Overall, the money I invested in Melissa’s service was far less than what I had wasted trying to find the right VA on my own. I would highly recommend her matching service to any small business owner.Kris Marsh
