“I knew that if I wanted my business to continue to grow, I needed to start growing my team, but I had no idea where to start when it came to finding the right person. Tonya helped me clarify exactly what kind of support I needed, created a short-list of amazing candidates, and even helped me through the daunting process of hiring and onboarding the perfect virtual assistant for me. She listened to what I needed and made the process of finding my new assistant an absolute pleasure. Now I have the support I need to take on new projects and my business is already on its way to the next level.”
