Let me tell you a little about our story…

 

 

My Why…

 

 

 

 

 

is My Heart’s Mission

 

Our Story

 

 

 

Told In A Note To You, from Our Founder, Tammy

 

 

 

To tell you how our story began I need to take you back a number of years ago to what has now become the ‘WHY’ of what I and our Team does to help clients. 

Tammy’s Experience:

I have over 30 years of business experience in number of  skill sets that help me in my business. 

My History includes:

  • Accounting
  • Administrative
  • Management (& more)
  • Retail

 

Something Changed…

 

 

In 2001 I became disabled due to Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  This caused it to become increasingly difficult to work outside of our home.  I had the skills to easily help professionals and businesses with a variety of services, so I began to look for work I could do from home (not an easy task even back in 2008).

 

I did not set out to start a business.  In fact, I did not  even know that was what I was doing until many moths later. 

 

My goal in 2008, was to simply begin to help add to our household income.  That is when I began to help a local professional with lead generation and virtual assistant services.  I was soon was being offered more work by my clients’ colleagues, who also wanted assistance, virtually.  

 

After I had the ‘Ah ha’ moment, realizing that I was truly creating a business, I also realized that the same need, to work from a home office, existed for many other disabled professionals.

 

Too many intelligent, highly skilled professionals, who happen to be disabled, are also trying to to find a way to support themselves and their families.

 

 

I knew, as our Company grew, I could begin to offer

OPPORTUNITIES for many Disabled Professionals 

that could have the potential to help them and their families, maybe even change their lives (if I dare dream big enough)!

My Entrepreneurial Journey had begun

I connected with people and organizations, as well as, State & Government divisions that might be able to help us with my Vision to Empower Disabled Professionals.  This is why I began to do business a little different, but much more fulfilling! 

 

 

EMPOWERING DISABLED PROFESSIONALS

 

I began to ‘do business‘ a little different. In fact, a little better, because I began with a true Passion to Help Business Owners with their Success, as well as, Empower DisABLED Professionals to work virtually, from home offices!


 

PASSION TO HELP YOU

 

 

We truly want to help YOU & Your Business with your success!  

Let us take some of

Your everyday out of your way

and put it into our hands

DID YOU KNOW?

“The unemployment rate for the disabled community is significantly higher than that of the general population.  In fact, for the blind & visually impaired the rate is over 90%.”

 


When I learned THIS, my heart I screamed: “Unacceptable!” 

I truly believe that our company model (if also adopted by other companies)

can make a difference in the businesses we assist

 in the lives of our professionals, and eventually, in our communities

States and Nation

*Using the term ‘Disabled’ is not meant to offend or harm anyone, it is with great respect I use this term, as I am also ‘Disabled’.  Our passion, aside from truly helping our client’s succeed, is to help disabled professionals to work from home.  Most of our Team is made up of Disabled Professionals or Mothers of Disabled Children.  Most of our professionals have Accreditations, Certifications and Degrees (varying from AA to Master’s).  All are highly skilled, intelligent and worthy individuals whom I hold in the greatest respect and regard.  This is not to say that all of our team is disabled, as we do not discriminate between the two, it only means as much as we are able we do add disabled professionals to our team.

President, Founder & 
VIRTUAL EXPERT

I grew up in an Entrepreneurial home so it is no surprise that I now own a business. I am, however, happy to also support a cause, not just a business. On the rare occasion that I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, including husband Eric & 3 grown children [Matthew & wife Alyssa, Samantha & Jonathan] and of course, our amazing grandchildren (Claire & Owen).   I also love sitting on the beach, reading, writing, teaching Bible studies, and scrapbooking.

Meet Our Team:

I am a little prejudice, but I think we have one of the best Teams of highly skilled & creative individuals.  I would love to introduce you.
