Over the last six months or so, more than ever, My Virtual Assistant has been receiving a number of recommendations from clients and networking associates via Social Media sites.
After putting out a plea for help on one of Facebook's community pages just last week, My Virtual Assistant came to the rescue and completely revamped Fliss Austin's existing website.
Fliss is a dynamic Naturopath with over 10 years experience and at Holistic Rejuvenation where she concentrates on natural health and beauty.
Holistic Rejuvenation is located in Blenheim, Marlborough, New Zealand.

Recently I was asked about my business wins and lessons...
I’ve always loved art and design, but when I was 16 my art teacher told me I was too much of a perfectionist to ever be any good at it. Now I'm running my own business, one of the things I absolutely adore doing is designing and creating brochures/flyers, and of course, websites.
After being knocked back as a teenager and about to leave school, I decided not to pursue my dream-career of training to become a graphic designer and instead, found myself working in the Travel Industry!
Now that I am a lot older and working in my own business as a Virtual Assistant, I receive immense satisfaction in finally achieving my dream of doing design work and simply revel in the enjoyment of being allowed to be as creative as I want to be. So a LIFE lesson for me is don’t let silly art teachers destroy your dreams and never, ever give up on your passion!
In 2009, I built my first ever website for my brand new business - My Virtual Assistant - and if someone had told me that I would one day be building websites for business owners, I would have laughed and said, ‘Yeah right!’
As I write, I have so far created 44 websites with two more due to go live in the near future.
My 'favourite' is when a client doesn’t know how they would like their website to look and they grant me free reign to do whatever I want to do. Consequently, I often feel a wee bit nervous when I'm about to send them the first draft and so far, thankfully, every single client has loved what I've come up with - that in itself is a massive WIN and huge buzz for me.
The TV show New Zealand has been waiting for!
Aren't referrals a wonderful thing? You never know where the next one is going to come from!
My Virtual Assistant launched a new website today and as a result of annoucing it on Facebook, I found out where the original referral had come from - a complete stranger!
How lovely to discover that people I don't know and have never met are out there referring me!
Break out the champers! The 40th website created by My Virtual Assistant has just gone 'live'!

Marion Jackson, from My Virtual Assistant, says: "I honestly love the creative side of building a website, plus I get to work with wonderful people and learn about the exciting and interesting industries they are in. It's such a pleasure to be able to create affordable websites for start-up businesses and small to mid-sized companies who don't have a website, think they can't afford a website, have a website that is out of date, or have a website that's just plain ugly!"
