Our Queen Bee
PURPOSEFUL AND DRIVEN
I am no Beyonce, I am Heather!
I am actually not a fan of Beyoncé's music, but I am a fan of her confidence and leadership skills. It has taken me these over 40 years on this planet to have the prowess to embody my own confidence and leadership.
I am excited to get to know you better, and let you get to know me. Write Way VA is my dream, my business baby. I am committed to serving other CEOs through business organization, operations, and planning.
I began this journey to support other business owners in having time freedom to create their vision and goals for their business.
It started off as simply managing the day-to-day tasks.
I was finding that I was great at what I knew, but was missing out in the areas I wasn't well-versed. I needed to learn more about business structure.
So, I set out to learn. And, boy did I...
I participated in online courses, I connected with my local SBDC, I networked in local business groups, and I connected with business owners who were doing what I wanted.
It all paid off.
I've spent the last 5 years serving our clients while building upon my business knowledge behind the scenes.
I have since taken the knowledge and applied it to the work we do for our clients. I created structure where it was missing for clients and brought them out of the day-to-day minutia that was weighing them down.
In doing so, I learned I Absolutely LOVE helping clients determine what will propel their business forward. Then, taking that information and crafting a plan to get them to that next level.
I did realize that to reach the clients that I wished to serve, and to give my Best to those clients, it was going to take a Team!
So, I went looking for others, like me, who wanted to serve others wanting more for themselves, their clients, and their businesses. We truly enjoy helping others reach their dreams.
Since bringing on the team, we have helped numerous service providers, coaches and consultants, designers, and speakers with everything from client onboarding, email management, systems implementation, workflow creation, podcast management, and the list goes on. Operations are our Thing!
Other than running the Write Way VA team, I've had the pleasure of doing some pretty cool things. I served on the International Virtual Assistants Association Board of Directors as the Director of Education; and the Association of Virtual Assistants Advisory Board. I have also partnered with the creator of Adminja and serve as an Adminja Ambassador. Providing Virtual Assistants with the tools and knowledge to run their businesses well is a passion of mine.
Oh, I have also been featured on Share Your Genius with Bri Seeley; Leading Behind the Scene with Gwendolyn Young; IVAA's Yearly Virtual Conference; AVA's Adminja Tutorial; and Adminja's Webinar on Forms.
I love sharing about the transition from a one-person show to having a team; why customer service matters in all business niches; the role of a VA, and how it's more than just a "task rabbit"; and growing as a leader in your niche and zone of genius.
Things You Never Knew You Wondered...
I love elephants. They are amazing creatures.
I live next door to my parents. I couldn't have asked for a better situation for my children. (yes, sometimes it seems a little too cozy)
I love to read Shakespeare and classical literature pieces. Jane Austen is one of my favorites. But, I also love Robert Frost's poetry.
I love dirt car racing. How do they get those cars to turn like that?!
I am mom to 2 teenagers (almost adults now) and we are getting ready for college, and for one on the roads!
Hockey is the coolest sport to see live! Go Pens!!
I love hard rock music. You can find me in the mosh pits at times.
I am a bonus Anya (grandma) to an amazing little dude. We love getting to spend time with him.
Riding on the back of a Harley is one of the most freeing things I've ever done. The fact I get to do it regularly is pretty freakin' awesome! (Love You Glenn!!)
I love haunted places and ghost hunts. Every year we visit the Ohio State Reformatory (fans of Shawshank Redemption will know) and have taken part in a haunted hide 'n seek at Hill View Manor (featured on Ghost Adventures).
Yes, I am the Queen Bee of Write Way VA. I wouldn't want to be anything else.
