I recently had the opportunity to be a guest on Blaire Palmer’s, A Brilliant Gamble podcast. I am, as you may know, a full time Virtual Assistant, but in addition I also help others start, build and grow their VA businesses to create a working life that isn’t stressful, depressing and life limiting.

But, I also regularly share that being a VA isn’t a quick route to earning easy money. It’s a business, it takes time to grow, time to get an audience to know, like and trust you.

As a guest on this podcast I share how you too can become a VA, but I also share some truths as well. I’d love you to have a listen.


It was a life threatening illness that first got Catherine thinking about how she could earn money outside of the 9-5. Today she earns 4 times what she was earning in her corporate role and has a lifestyle that works much better with her health and personal priorities. In this interview we talk about how she started her business and how she’s grown it through her focus on constant marketing.

We talk about the VA profession – what kinds of people make the best VAs and what kinds of people do not.

And we talk about the journey she’s been on – how working for herself has changed her life and her health.
