I want to take a moment to personally WELCOME you to becoming a client with Virtual Simplicity! You know it’s the time to change the way you work. It isn’t possible to wear all the hats, and it’s time to hand off some of those responsibilities so you can focus on the thing that matters most- doing the thing you LOVE and growing your business!
I am committed to providing the very best service to you as your online business manager and it is my number one goal to treat your business like my own. You can count on me to provide excellent customer service to you and your clients/customers.
So, with that, welcome to my family of clients and if there is anything I can do to make our working relationship better, I’d love to hear from you.

Weekends: Communication will be responded to on the next business day (usually Mondays).
Communication Methods: I work with two main forms of communication.
