When Carina came to us, she was in desperate need of support. As well as working full-time as the manager of academic operations at a large university, she also ran Ponderlily, an eco-friendly lifestyle company. With so much going on, she simply didn't have the time to make the progress she wanted to with her business. "I was sleeping at 3am or sometimes 4am doing correspondence for our business," explains Carina. "I simply couldn't run all aspects of it."
After getting in touch, she was quickly paired with Victoria who impressed her from the get-go. "For my first task I asked Victoria to do some research for me and not only did she come back with an itemized list of what I needed, but categorized by priority, and additional recommendations of things I hadn't even thought of," beams Carina.
Since she started working with Victoria, Carina's quickly broken through her Wall. She's been able to take a step back and focus on the things that really matter, as well as finally get a decent night's sleep! "Having someone take care of correspondence, research, and communication with suppliers has made my life so much easier," exclaims Carina. "Thanks to Time etc and my super Assistant - who plays a pivotal role in our business - I can actually sleep at a decent time. Our VA is very much part of the Ponderlily team and I wouldn't have it any other way!"
