pick my brain


Are you thinking about starting your own VA business? Or maybe you want to jam with someone who knows about social media tools, blogging, or productivity apps.

There’s a whole lot to know in this online world and for us solo business owners it can sometimes get a bit lonely. There are times when we don’t need to engage an assistant or sign up for a training program, we just want to talk things through with someone who’s been there and understands what we’re trying to achieve.

I can be that person for you.

As a former corporate professional, a blogger, a personal development geek, a small business owner, a Facebook fan, and a virtual assistant, there’s a fair bit of information kicking around in my brain. And I love nothing more than being able to share with people so they can make the most of what they love to do without falling down the Youtube rabbit hole.

what can we talk about?

All sorts of online-y goodness! Here’s some of the things people use these sessions for:

  • I’m considering becoming a VA, where would I start?
  • How do I decide what to blog about?
  • How does engaging a VA actually work? What can I outsource to them?
  • What’s your favourite social media scheduler/task management tool/email software/(insert here)?
  • Why are you so fascinated by flamingos? (Just kidding. And the answer’s short — no idea!)

how does it work?

You use the button below to secure your session, after which you complete a short questionnaire so I can find out what’s on your mind. Within 2 business days I’ll send you some possible times to book, and once it’s in the calendar I’ll spend some time getting my thoughts together in preparation for our chat.

We’ll get together on Skype for up to one hour to talk through whatever your heart desires (and whatever tangents come too, because we all know that can happen!)

After our conversation I’ll put together my notes and recommendations and email them to you. I’ll link to any rad tips, tools, and resources we talked about and anything else that springs to mind. This is yours to refer back to whenever you need it. Sound good?
