Several years back I found myself at forks in both the professional and personal roads of my life. I began to reflect on how I usually made decisions about these two paths separately. While I’d often tried to balance my career and personal life, the two were still in constant competition. What if—I asked myself—I could create an opportunity that allowed me to focus on both?
In 2012 I founded Boldly with one goal at the forefront: to do meaningful, challenging and fulfilling work that would support and complement my lifestyle instead of tearing me away from it.
Last year, Boldly received more than 25,000 applications from aspiring virtual assistants looking for this same balance of career and personal life. This got us thinking. Could we share the love with more than just our immediate team? Could we share our knowledge, and open our doors to further everyone’s success? Well yes – why not?! And so We Are Virtual Assistants was born. In keeping with Boldly’s philosophy, I hope that the tools and resources on this site help you to create a rewarding career and to have the flexibility to organize your life around your priorities.
