After growing her VA business from a one-woman show to a team of talented professionals who provide all areas of back office virtual support over the last 10+ years, she is divulging her secrets to success, covering work/life balance, strategies for outsourcing, remote work and everything in between. People often ask her, ‘Can you be an entrepreneur and still have it all?’ The answer is a resounding ‘yes’. Rachel finds time to home school her 4 children, run a 6 figure business, host a podcast, and perform in theatre and film…. all through the power of outsourcing.

Good Note: Applying yourself no matter the situation. “The world is my oyster.”
Bad Note: Pinpointing your weaknesses. You don’t need to do everything yourself.
Tell us about your Band: Think through everything that is on my list of responsibilities to grow your business which may include personal things that may be weighing on us. From having a manager to hiring someone to clean your house.
Instrument of Choice: Check list and to-do list. I created my company around that idea. A process of thinking through and working through your responsibilities. Constantly evaluating that and going with what’s urgent and important. Even when I’m interrupted I know what to come back to.
Jam Room: Close your door! Having a mindset of when you get off track how easy is it to get back to work. Having kids they want what they want when they want it so taking that break when needed and having your todo list to fall back on will make the difference on getting things done.
Guest Solo: It’s a good time to be a virtual assistant now that people are more comfortable with it. For my love of helping people outsource from my business I started my own podcast with the sole purpose of helping business owners with their business.
