The idea of VA Rashae has floated around in my head for … a couple years, truly. I didn’t have an exact vision, but I had heard the term ‘virtual assistant’ and researched it … more than once. Argued with myself back and forth that I didn’t have the knowledge or skills to start a business. So I waited. And waited. And waited. Until finally July of 2021, when I saw a five week course by someone I follow online, called VA Code. 

I talked with my spouse and they were so supportive, but I was still hesitant. It was an investment. And I didn’t want to waste money. So I journaled and asked the Universe for a sign (a butterfly.) Within half an hour of writing that down and closing my notebook, I saw a butterfly not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES. 

Okay Universe! Damn! I hear you. So I *deep breath* made the first of two payments. I immediately dived in and put my whole heart into learning the material and showing up for calls. I WANTED THIS. I wanted to start a business and make it work, so bad. 

After ‘graduation’, I immediately set a date to launch VA Rashae online (9/10/21.) I was scrambling to get everything put together in time. It took almost a month but I finally got my first client and whew … it was a learning experience.

I didn’t realize how much I could grow in such a short period of time. In less than six months of this business I have already made changes to my website and services. I have discovered things I like (and dislike), and the heights I want to push myself to with VA Rashae in the future. 

This is just the start, y’all. 

Thank you for being here and being a part of it.
