In a nutshell, I’m that Virtual Superhero who will tackle your nagging neeeeeeever-ending to-do list.

How I Work
I’m excited to work with you! The first step is to schedule a consultation so we can discuss your needs.
We can discuss your project over Skype or in person if feasible, so I can prepare a proposal based on your needs.
I offer you a proposal. Once agreed upon, a contract is drawn up and your retainer invoice is sent. Once paid, our project begins.
Frequently Asked Questions
I understand that starting a new project can cause some hesitation, doubt or perhaps you’re just unsure. Not to worry, you’ve got questions. I’ve got answers.
Do I really need a Business Support Specialist?
If you are overwhelmed and do not want to hire an employee, hiring a business support specialist is the best option for you. I work with many different types of successful people: authors, artists, sales people, consultants, coaches, contractors, executives, professionals, non-profits, web-based businesses, small business owners and entrepreneurs — anyone seeking to live a more balanced life with more free time to do the things he/she wants to do.
How exactly would you save me and my business money?
You only pay for the time spent working on a project or task, which translates into 100% productivity. I apply my corporate experience and technical know-how directly to your projects, which equates to more accomplished in less time. Hiring an independent contractor rather than an employee, will save you money in the following ways:
- Pay only for the time and material spent on your projects.
- No expenses on payroll, taxes, vacation or benefits.
- No physical workspace or additional equipment needed.
- No down-time expense (coffee breaks, personal phone calls, etc.).No staffing drama.
What can I expect working with you?
We will collaborate relationship to determine which processes to implement. You newly freed time will allow you be more focused and organized and alas — more productive! Throughout our working relationship, we will communicate clearly so that all expectations are met and exceeded. As our relationship develops, mutual success is achieved as I continue to help you grow and achieve your goals. I work from home mostly and occasionally from a business hub. I communicate with my clients via email, telephone, instant messaging, JoinMe, Skype, etc. I like to schedule a weekly “calibration call” to make sure we’re on the same page.
Are there a minimum/maximum number of hours I must sign up for?
A la carte assignments are done on an individual contract basis. Rates will vary on project scope, with a 50% deposit due up front. Work begins once the deposit is received. Balance due as soon as deliverables are handed over.
Is my information safe?
Confidentiality is vital in today’s electronic age, I ensure that all your information remains with me only and is never shared with any other companies or individuals. For more information please check out my privacy statement.
How do I get started with my résumé?
Getting started could not be easier! I offer several options to suit your needs. Click here for packages.
If you have an existing résumé, email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which package you are opting for. I will then send you an intake form and possibly a questionnaire, depending on your industry.
I've never had a résumé done before, I have no idea where to begin!
Not a problem! Nothing to feel bad about! We may just have to do a little more collaboration than normal. I’ll send you a questionnaire and additional questions via e-mail — whatever your particular situation requires. I’ve done résumés for people who’ve worked most of their career at the same company and never really needed one, so it’s not that uncommon.
