Just because you run your own business does not mean you don’t deserve the high level administrative support of a corporate executive. After 15 years of being an Executive Assistant for high-powered corporate executives at Fortune 500 companies, I then spent the next 14 years providing that same high level support as a full time Virtual Assistant. I’m honored to work mostly with transformational coaches and holistic health coaches. These fabulous and inspiring business owners are focused on making others feel and live better and I’m focused on helping their businesses thrive. I support coaches so that they can make change on a larger scale.
When people ask what I do, my response is generally, “well… are you familiar with what an Executive Assistant and what a Project Manager does in a corporate environment? That’s what I do, but I work with clients across the country from a distance”.
Having been a full time Virtual Assistant since 2002, the scope of what I do on a daily basis varies with each client. Some people refer to me as their Virtual Assistant. Others call me their Online Business Manager. Regardless of the title, what I do is a hybrid between the two and I take it a level further with a coaching component; I take a high level approach to look at where you are right now in your business, where you want to be and we piece together all the necessary strategic and technical components to help you grow your business.

Gayle is not just about tasks – I love that she cares deeply about my business and thinks out of the box by providing brilliant strategic suggestions for
