Not Enough Hours in the day - Connect to Outsourced VA
Hey I am Manda, and I own Outsourced VA. I specialize in Virtual Assistance, Graphic Design and Social Media – including content creating, and marketing/advertising. Here is my Superhero back story and how Outsourced VA came about ….
I have been doing admin tasks for over 6 years – privately. I started out as personal assistant to a family friend who sold Tupperware way back in 2006. I learnt the in’s and out’s of running a small business. In 2011, I felt confident enough to branch out on my own and become a consultant – within her team. I did that for a few years and gained valuable knowledge and experience – I was running my own business! I eventually left and went on to have my 4 beautiful children – who all keep me very busy! And experience other job industries.
In 2017 while cleaning my oven, I had a light bulb moment! After doing research, I found that 1. its a job not many people enjoy at all! and 2. there wasn’t many oven cleaners around (because its a job no many like doing!). Oven Lovin was born. I created a Facebook page, and started my venture of marketing and advertising myself as an oven cleaner! My business was very successful, and I was being booked out weekly!
At the start of 2019 I ventured into housekeeping/cleaning – and doing ovens on the side. What sat me apart from other house cleaners – was I catered to the individual needs of my clients. I did the jobs they required, so there was no set list – just a set price and time. I did all the jobs the required in the allocated time. Again I was very successful in this area.
That all came to an end when the rest of the country and world came to a standstill – from Covid in 2020.
Here we are in 2021. I was looking for a job that I could maximize my skills and talents, while still following my passion of helping people. In March 2021 I took a leap of faith and started my own VA business! I felt confident in knowing what to do – this would only be the third time I started my own business, and I had a vast knowledge in admin tasks, marketing and adverting, and graphic design. I created all my own social media platforms – including my website, did all my own marketing and networking and found my own clients. I also taught myself quite a bit along the way.
Since then, I have found a long term client – and business partner! I am co-owner of a dog walking business called “Jess Walks Dogs” – this was handed to me as a skeleton (legit it was just a website and a business idea) it was my job to add the “guts” to it. Its an ongoing (small) side project. I have had one major project for my business portfolio (almost to the extent I went to, to set up my business), as well as small side jobs – including helping to start up two small businesses..
I find I am doing more graphics and social media work than VA work – which is amazing as I just love being creative and helping clients bring their visions to life! I really enjoy the challenge of learning something new and always looking for ways to to feed my thirst of knowledge!
And that my friends, is how Outsourced VA was born – and I became a Superhero!
