Hi there! I’m Candance, founder of VA Square. I’m so happy that you’re here because it means you’re about to make a significant change in your life. Maybe you’re thinking about hiring help, or perhaps you’re looking for a way to manage your life better through your work as a VA, so you don’t feel so frazzled all of the time.
No matter what your story is, I know that we can help you, just like we have so many other awesome ladies.
I have a story too (of course). In 2007 as a side gig, I started helping some family and friends with their websites and online marking, little did I know that those skills would launch me into something awesome! In 2011, I was pregnant with our first (and so far only) kiddo and working in accounting, putting in 16 to 18-hour days. Ouch, right? No shit. I quickly realized that I didn’t want to work those hours for someone else as a new mom and I immediately felt pulled to start my own business.
I poked around a bit online, and once I got past all of the get rich quick crap, I started working as a Virtual Assistant on Elance (now Upwork) using the skills that I already had and learning new ones as I went along. I got my first couple clients helping them with simple details in their businesses that freed them up to do other, money making stuff.
It was an eye-opener for me.
I worked with those clients and networked in social media and got referred to other clients, and things started to take off in my business. It was growing FAST!
While looking around and networking in Facebook groups, I also found so many other moms who wanted to work from home too but couldn’t seem to figure out how. They were running into the same stumbling blocks that I had.
It became clear to me, almost overnight, what my new mission was:
- To help other women manage their current businesses better so they could have a family if they chose and a life that they control 100%, just like the one I have now created AND
- To help other women have the chance to work from home that didn’t leave them in direct sales (if they didn’t want to be) or investing tons of money into crazy, get rich quick programs
I want to help other people manage their current businesses better or even have the opportunity to work from home by starting their own business so that they can focus more on their family.
