Here's the thing, I never, and I mean NEVER even thought I could or would want to be an entrepreneur. Why? Because for what?! So much work.... I just wanted to make a decent living at a "stable job" and be happy coming home to my family. I feel like I used to be Theo in the pilot episode of the Cosby Show where he said he just wanted to be like "regular people"
When I was pregnant things started to crack and I was too dumb, stupid or remedial to even realize it... What sane woman with a husband, child and a full time job starts a part time job as a 1099 contractor, at 6 months pregnant? I wouldn't even say I needed the money.
I started doing as a side hustle, what I had been happily doing for free; working as an admin to non-profits and small businesses.
I became a Virtual Assistant at a startup and it was one the biggest turning points in my life.
After my daughter was born, I got an email that my maternity leave would be cut short... "What the what?! I have 2 more weeks and my childcare isn't finalized plus I had planned to come back part time for an additional 6 weeks." They were NOT trying to hear that noise. They claimed that my FMLA had been impacted by my time off for a tonsillectomy the previous year, blah, blah blah... In essence, I was screwed if I didn't show up Monday!
4 weeks later my truck stopped and we had no money to get it repaired or buy a new one right away. New babies are expensive!!! So even though we had discussed me quitting down the line when I was making more in the biz... My husband said, "I think today was just your last day." So, I resigned, effective immediately and got to work. Thus, VA Gladiator was born.
I had no choice but to grind to replace my income. Within 2 months we bought a new car and I never looked back. I love what I do. I am just like a real life Olivia Pope (minus the presidential liaison and murder) and I run the O.P.A. for business owners.
There's only one thing I would change... For years I have been trying to figure out how I can do more, give more and share what I've learned. Finally it hit me, like a brick...in the head. I can only give so much serving business owners 1:1 being a VA/OBM. But, if I teach people how to do what I do, I can affect many more families and help create business owners! I know it's the whole "give a man a fish/teach a man to fish" thing but I missed it, until now.
That's why I created Gladiator U., a VA training school where you can take courses that will teach you what I know. These training courses to show you exactly what I did to leverage my knowledge into the VA skills I use to serve my clients every day. We will have everything from insanely inexpensive mini courses to 1:1 work with me. So if you have been looking for a legit way to work from home, and leverage your skills to make money, you want to be one of the first to know once Gladiator U launches.
