Student Overcomes Obstacle to Launch a Thriving VA Business!

“With virtual work, there are NO barriers”.

These are the wise words from Lisa Galletti who was diagnosed a year ago with a degenerative eye condition that prevented her from continuing in her in-house Payroll Specialist position. Lisa’s employer was not able to accommodate her health condition so she was forced to consider a new path for her life.

In this inspiring video interview, Lisa shares her transition from a long-term career as a Payroll Specialist to building a thriving new VA business supporting financial professionals!

Lisa shares some powerful nuggets of wisdom including:

– How she was able to marry her payroll background with a new VA niche in the financial sector
– How to minimize the “overwhelm” in starting your own VA business
– How virtual at-home work can open up a world of amazing opportunities

This one is a must watch!
