Hi, I’m Lydia!
Your work matters in the world, and my job is to help you get it out there.
From A 10-Year Executive Assistant Career To Launching A Virtual Assistant Business.
“I don’t know if I’m cut out to be an entrepreneur.”
This is what Melissa Strange told herself after many years of contemplation about leaving her 10-year corporate career as an Executive Assistant.
But one day, Melissa made a choice that her deepest desire to have a life on her terms was bigger than her fears of believing in herself.
So how did she muster up the courage to pursue the unknown world of entrepreneurship, repurpose the skills she had, and start building her business?
This is what I’m uncovering in my conversation with her that I’m excited to share with you!
Melissa’s currently a 90 Day Launch student. She’s admittedly said she’s not even halfway through the program yet, but has accomplished her goal of getting paid clients and launching (imperfectly).
She share her experience of being a part of this program and what she’s accomplished so far as a first time business owner.
Without relying on a fancy website, glitzy branding, or marketing tactics that aren’t aligned with her introvert personality type, Melissa’s proven that giving value generously and building relationships one human at a time can be an authentic approach to build a business.
