It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change” Charles Darwin (1809 – 1882)
It’s time to embrace the opportunities that the online world has to offer you and your business vision!
I know it might feel scary and overwhelming when you first dip your toes into the world of online marketing and doing business digitally, but if there’s one thing I can promise you, it’s that you won’t regret that you did!
Hi, my name is Lourdes and my passion is helping established business owners, just like you, to make the shift online so you can grow your business, expand your reach and serve more clients globally. All from the comfort of your own home.
I discovered the world of virtual business almost by accident (although I know now that it was more a case of divine intervention. When the student is ready the teacher appears!).
Back in 2011, we left our hometown in Glendale Heights, Illinois, of 16 years, to a new city for my husband’s work. I had to quit my 2 jobs that I LOVED, one of which was in sales where I was a top performer for 8 consecutive years. I was always winning fabulous prizes, even though I worked part time hours.
The new town was pretty remote, and I found a new job but quickly began to feel that something was very wrong! I was driving a lot of miles every day for a soul sucking $7 / hour in a job that did not light me up. For the first time in a long time, I was miserable, and I felt trapped. I knew I was meant for more and I had so much to offer but the opportunities in the area seemed so limited, especially as a mom too, I wanted to be available for my family. I prayed for a solution to my predicament.
Out of the blue, a crazy ad on Google popped up advertising for Virtual Assistants. I’d never heard the term before, but I was drawn to the ad and the more I dug into it, the more it felt as though the heavens were answering my prayers. Wow! I could work from home? This was totally new to me!
I did a ton of research as I was afraid of this being a scam and eventually, I joined a non-profit organization that offered educational courses, training workshops, and a community for like-minded aspiring VA’s. I fell in love with this world and the opportunities that it afforded people like me, who had skills and talents and wanted the freedom to work from home.
I threw myself into learning the systems and the technology, and within 12 months I was appointed to the board of directors for education, and I co-wrote the training manuals. I ended up having responsibility for a team of 23. I felt great and was loving the learning.
Within 2 years I was very busy, helping clients with their website build and maintenance, social media management and running up to 8 webinars a month. It all felt so right, especially since my background education was in computer science, business administration and sales.
Talk about alignment!
Not only was I harnessing my natural talents in technology, but I was realizing my gift for teaching with empathy and compassion. Being spiritually influenced, I felt fulfilled in service and I knew this was my true path. I wanted to help others experience this fulfillment and satisfaction and so I added Certified Coach and Mentor to my skill set.
My business has evolved from Virtual Assistant services to digital business consultant and coaching services. Why? Because I want to help those who want to make the initial leap but who are afraid and don’t know where to start. I know the fears and self-doubts and I can help you.
I want to see you successfully transition online, leverage your expertise and authority so you’re recognized as the go-to in your field and attract more clients globally.
Why do you want to work virtually?
If you are already a business owner and working locally to reach your potential clients, you’re literally leaving money on the table and missing out on billions of people you can help. OK, so you may not be able to help every single person on the planet, but just knowing that you can help more people worldwide is exciting!
If you dreamed of having your own business and you have specialized skills but you currently work for someone else…..Are you tired of the 9-5 grind and the commute? Take a leap of faith with me and let’s put you back in the driving seat of your destiny and build your business on your own terms. You can do this! Start part-time to build your dream business or go all in.
I understand the fears, the confusion of starting a business online because I’ve been there. I had no idea that I could work from home and make money. I did so much research, took all kinds of classes and became certified in different product knowledge and became a certified coach and mentor.
My experience and expertise are in digital marketing, WordPress website, webinars, social media, and systems and processes. I can help you develop your dream business online. I can guide you every step of the way, without all the techie jargon.
If you dare dream and manifest your business that aligns with your soul’s purpose to help others worldwide, let’s get on a truth-seeking confidential Zoom meeting and discuss your vision, and transform your business into the digital world.
