Virtually Yours (Assistance) called VYA for short was created March 25, 2009.
My employment background was inbound/outbound call centre, market research & customer service
Then from 2006-2008 came a major blow to my life as I faced a life threatening illness making it difficult
to work a regular job. After my illness recovery I was unable to return to work for six weeks which fell on
New Years Day.
The next Spring; suggested an idea to another who put me in charge of booking appointments saying
women are better at customer service. That night I thought of a name for what I would call myself & the
name Virtually Yours (Assistance) appeared in mind. Thus VYA was born.
It is said that sometimes good tidings can come out of bad. My entire life have wanted to embark on the
entrepreneurial journey and it took almost losing my life to pave the road.
VISION: Grow a business that allows me to utilize my skills in a profitable manner, gain a steady stream
of income by assisting others & decrease global poverty by employing others.
Illness taught a MAJOR life lesson & I realized while my situation was temporary but not everyone is
dealt the same card in life. Decreasing global poverty was a lifelong dream of my Maternal
Grandmother. She told me so often it became my Vision. With my life & since start of VYA; many
know about my passion for assisting worthy causes.
MISSION: To be Top choice as service provider aiming Virtual Assistant companies by helping small
business owners increase their ROI. Giving them back their time to work ON their business not IN it,
decreasing their stress by handling the small tasks that weigh them down and allowing them to be able
to enjoy their leisure time worry free.
As a self professed junior techie; this type of work suits me perfectly. Started embracing the ‘Geek Life’
starting in my mid teens when other friends were geeks, jumped on the bandwagon to not feel left out.
