When you homeschool, you have to juggle a lot of things. As a parent, you’re already wearing a lot of hats and when you add to it the task of being a teacher as well, you’re going to be very busy.

By Karrie | 0 Comments

When you hire a virtual assistant, especially your first VA, do you have an instruction manual to give them? Probably not. Why is a franchise successful and consistent from Chicago to Moscow?

By Karrie | 0 Comments

The benefits of saving you time and money are usually the main reasons for hiring a VA. The hidden value or least discussed benefit is one that you can’t put a $-sign to or a time limit on. As a mother to 3 kids, it’s the undervalued benefit of an EMOTIONAL SUPPORT SYSTEM. Now, most people don’t like to talk emotions and all the huggy – feely stuff, but again as a work from home Mom and a woman, these things need to be discussed.
