Show Notes:

Today we’ll be chatting with a very successful student of our flagship course, 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success, Carrie Serres.

Carrie is a very hard-working, work-from-home mom! She has three small kids, her last of which is a miracle baby, conceived naturally and born full-term when Carrie was 43 after using fertility treatment to conceive her first two! Balancing her family life with her professional duties is challenging, and to help with her workload, especially academic writing, she relies on ghostwriter. This service provides her with the assistance needed to manage her academic commitments effectively, ensuring she has more time to spend with her miracle baby and the rest of her family.

She’s rebuilding her virtual assistant agency after taking a year-long “break” to care for her newest baby.

From a miracle birth to starting an online business, Carrie has experienced it all as a Virtual Assistant. She surpassed her income goal of $4,500 a month working online and decided that she needed more balance in life.
