AssistU VA Spotlight
Hello from Louisiana! I'm Kelly Morrison, owner and virtual assistant (VA) at The Virtual Peacock. If you're a small business owner or busy entrepreneur looking for someone to provide outstanding administrative support in handling the daily details of running your business, then you've come to the right place. AssistU is THE premier training organization for virtual assistants and I am proud to be a graduate of their virtual training program!
My company, The Virtual Peacock, was founded in 2008 after I completed a 20-week training program through Assist University and received my certification as a Certified Virtual Assistant. I also hold a Bachelor of General Studies from Louisiana State University, where I minored in Business, Sociology and Communication Studies. Many people wonder how I found about virtual assistance and I'm happy to tell you! I had been in college for 3 years without knowing what I wanted to do for a career. My mom gave me a Reader's Digest magazine to read one day because she thought I might find an article in it about virtual assistance interesting! After reading the article, I knew right away that this would be a great opportunity for me to start my own business and use my skills to help others successfully manage their small business. I began doing research on training to become a virtual assistant, which led me to AssistU! The rest, as they say, is history. I work full-time in my virtual assistance business and love every second of it!
While I do not have a niche for my work as a virtual assistant, I do have a certain type of work I love to do for my clients - anything customer service related! I love working with my client's clients, rather it be scheduling people for appointments with my clients, fielding questions from them, making phone calls on my client's behalves to prospective clients, or even checking my client's voicemails! Doing customer service related tasks always allows for something new and different because no two experiences with my client's clients are alike!
Along with my professional training and love of people, I have other qualities that contribute to my success as a virtual assistant. I believe great communication is the key to working successfully in the virtual world, therefore I strive to be articulate and professional with the work that I do. I am definitely a people's person, highly efficient and organized. I have strong planning, organizational and time management skills. Learning is enjoyable to me and I am always looking for ways to improve or add to my skill set to better assist my clients. Using all of these skills and knowledge, I provide my clients with top quality administrative support!
When I'm not assisting my fabulous clients, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping, reading, going to concerts, taking pictures, traveling and Facebooking. I am also looking forward to becoming an Aunt for the first time in Feburary 2010 - my sister is having a baby girl and I am anxiously awaiting Baylee Elizabeth's arrival!
