Hi, y’all! Welcome, and thank you for being here! This is my very first blog EVER! It is my hope that this space will encourage, educate, and embolden you to live a life you love! My name is Abby. I’m a mom to two wonderful kiddos, Virtual Assistant, holistic wellness enthusiast, bibliophile, and self-taught artist.
When I’m not wrangling my lovely children or trying to catch a moment with my favorite books (C.S. Lewis, anyone??) you can usually find me on my computer. I stumbled into the realm of virtual assisting in 2018 when a friend asked me to create her IG content. After dipping my toes in the water by working for her, I jumped in in 2019 by enrolling in a Virtual Assisting course, and launched Verdant Heart Virtual Assisting in early 2020. As a virtual assistant, I serve entrepreneurs that focus on holistic wellness. What is holistic wellness, you might ask? It’s not just yoga and essential oils – although I do yoga and I use essential oils when I need to! Holistic wellness refers to creating and fostering wellness in your entire being – mental, physical, and spiritual. I believe that the health of each system is inseparable from the others and if one is hurting, the others will be too. With this as my focus, I serve everyone from Personal Trainers to Midwives, to Chiropractors, to Counselors and Coaches! Really, pretty much anyone whose focus is helping others live happier, healthier, more fulfilled lives. I initially started this VA thing as a way to help out a friend and learn some skills, but it has definitely morphed beyond that. As a virtual assistant, I have the privilege to help entrepreneurs successfully and professionally serve their clients and foster wellness within their sphere of influence. I do this by taking on the time-draining busy work that is inherent with running a business, but also takes away from focus on clients. My goal is to support those who are encouraging and fostering wellness in others, because as AMAZING as these people are, they can’t (and shouldn’t be expected to) do it all on their own! Ultimately, I believe that we were created to live in community, and we will live our best lives when we are supporting and encouraging others. It’s a passion and a pleasure to have the opportunity to lift like-minded entrepreneurs so that they can realize their dreams. It’s not always easy, but it is always worth it! I look forward to taking this journey, and I hope that you’ll join me! You can find me here on the blog, or @verdantheartva on Facebook and Instagram. I look forward to hearing from you!
