A Note From Tammy

Life Changes

Our company is not just a business, it truly is my heart mission. In 2001 I became disabled due to Multiple Sclerosis (& later Lupus). With a background in Accounting, Administrative, Retail Management & more, I knew I was qualified to assist professionals and businesses with a variety of services.  Yet it became increasingly difficult to work outside of the home. I set out to find legitimate work from home work.  I did not begin to start a business, I began because I needed to help my family financially.  I soon was being offered work by clients’ colleagues, who also wanted assistance, virtually. After the ‘Ah ha’ moment of knowing I was creating a business, I also knew that it could be a good opportunity for many disabled professionals as well.   Suddenly, I wanted to have an abundance of clients, so that I could actually give the work away, to begin to offer opportunities that were not just a job, but a good fit for many disABLED Professionals.  

So I began to ‘do business’ a little differently. In fact, a little better, because I began with a passion to help business owners, as well as, empower disABLED Professional to work!

Not only am I passionate about assisting businesses in moving forward in their success, but I knew  I could absolutely do that by utilizing the many skills & talents of other disabled professionals.


DID YOU KNOW?

“The employment 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%.”


In my continuing journey, it came to my attention that the unemployment rate for the disabled community is significantly higher than that of the general population, for the blind & visually impaired the rate is over 90%! In my heart I screamed:  “Unacceptable!”  I really believe that our company model can make a difference in the businesses we assist, in the lives of our professionals, and eventually, in our communities, States and Nation.

This is why, when You use our services You can feel good about doing business with us, because not only will you receive great custom services, but you will also be supporting the disabled community!

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL PROFESSIONAL?

Virtual Professionals simply provide business management or office services, marketing, writing services and more, remotely or virtually. In other words, we work remotely for YOU, working from a home office or other office space. Many Virtual Professionals have specialties or a particular niches they off.  We offer the following services for YOU:

Advantages of Hiring a Virtual Professional:

TIME: Our most precious resource! We give you Time Back so that you can work ON your business and not IN your business. All experts agree that a business will not grow until the Owner/CEO is able to go from working IN the company to working ON the company. We will help you do this, by taking those distracting tasks off your hands and putting them into ours.

MONEY: Our services are much less than hiring in house, and are far less than it would be if you do the work yourself, missing revenue opportunities. Hiring full-time in house, means paying an hourly or even salary rate, whether working or on breaks/lunch. With the added costs of paying for benefits; possibly including insurance, vacations, workman’s compensation and more. Our affordable packages allow you to choose the number of hours you think you will use in a month, with the added benefit of a one month roll over of hours not used. Therefore, you are only paying for the hours we use to assist you and nothing extra.

ORGANIZATION & GO GREEN: We can also assist in organizing files, scanning and moving them, even storing files for you in an easy to use cloud service of your choice. No more files eating up your hard drive!  Do you have files you need to be accessible and secure on multiple devices in nearly any location?  We can set it up for you.

Tammy Durden
President & Founder

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 my granddaughter (Claire). In the rare times I am not working, I love sitting on the beach, reading, writing, teaching Bible studies, and scrapbooking. My family and I, attend Spring Run Baptist Church, in Mechanicsville, where my husband is the Pastor.
