Today we’ll be chatting with a very successful student of our flagship course, 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success, Carrie Serres.
Carrie is a very hard-working, work-from-home mom! She has three small kids, her last of which is a miracle baby, conceived naturally and born full-term when Carrie was 43 after using fertility treatment to conceive her first two!
She’s rebuilding her virtual assistant agency after taking a year-long "break" to care for her newest baby.
From a miracle birth to starting an online business, Carrie has experienced it all as a Virtual Assistant. She surpassed her income goal of $4,500 a month working online and decided that she needed more balance in life.
