Share Your Passion (and get new clients!)

If you’re not passionate about what you do, don’t do it.

Life is far too short to spend time doing a job that you hate or working with people you dislike. I encourage everyone to choose a profession that means waking up every day excited to get started and to have a hard time sleeping on Sunday night because you’re chomping at the bit to get started Monday morning again.

Now, you may not think of a career as a virtual assistant as something you can be passionate about – but you can be!

The 2 Biggest Mistakes Virtual Assistants Make

There are some VA trainers that tell you that you should “just do it” – meaning, don’t worry about the details, just open the doors of your business and start taking on clients. I’m not one of those trainers. There are two HUGE mistakes...

Kim Garnett - VA Success Academy

Who Am I?

Hello friend! My name is Kim, and I’m the owner of Brainy Girl Virtual Assistant and the VA Success Academy.

In 2013, I left a JOB that I hated – as a single mom, with no backup plan – and I took the leap into the amazing world of virtual assistance. Within 6 months I’d hired my first VA to help me keep up with a growing client base. Now I have several divisions of Brainy Girl Virtual Assistant, a team of VA’s, a newly acquired business partner, and I’m making 6 figures a year. I wake up everyday excited to work. Hard work, time, systems & processes, amazing team members, an online landscape of abundance, and a whole lot of grit got me to where I am today, and I’m about to share everything I’ve learned with you.

I’m here to help you create a business, and life, that you love.
