It feels good to wave goodbye to 2020. I think we can all agree it was a year full of challenges. However, one of the silver linings is that online businesses have seen tremendous growth!
Members of the Introvert VA Club have been busy starting new businesses or expanding their current businesses. We have more members, training, and opportunities than ever before!
My team and I are working hard to provide the highest quality resources for our members based on our own experiences, changes in the online world, and frequently asked questions from our VAs. I’ve put together a list for you of everything we added in 2020. There’s even a sneak peek at what’s coming in 2021!
If you’re ready to take a giant step toward your dream of working from home with a flexible schedule, come join our supportive community! You’ll get instant access to all the tools you need for a successful business as well as encouragement and advice from some of the best VAs you’ll ever meet.
