From Virtual Assistant to Business Coach to Marketing Agency Owner

17 years of business and career upgrades to becoming a marketing agency owner.

I’ve been in a massive reflection mode lately…I wanted to share with you my journey of how I went from being a Virtual Assistant to a Business Coach to a Marketing Agency Owner. Shocker… it didn’t happen overnight.

It all started back in 2005ish, when I decided to take the leap and start my own business as a Virtual Assistant. I had always been interested in helping small businesses and saw an opportunity to do so by offering my administrative, website design and techie skills.

As my business grew, I realized that many of my clients were looking for more than just administrative support. They needed help with their overall business strategy, launch marketing plans and overall operations. This led me to transition into becoming a Business Coach, where I could offer a more hands-on approach to helping my clients succeed online.

By this time, becoming a Marketing Agency Owner was a dream that was starting to be created but didn’t feel attainable.

In the last 5 years, I decided to expand my business once again and started offering these services locally. Which lead to be offered to purchase Creative Marketing Strategies in Sidney, Ohio. This move allowed me to offer a wider range of services to my clients, including traditional print and digital marketing, branding, and website design.

Throughout this journey, I have always been passionate about helping entrepreneurs and small businesses succeed.

But this week, something else happened…

TWO $60+ MILLION dollar, National Brands turned to us for help and support.

WHAT? IS THIS REAL LIFE? Yes, Ali… it IS.

I want to stress the importance of starting where you are and growing as you go.

I didn’t start off with a grand plan to become a Marketing Agency owner. HONESTLY, I thought I would retire as a VA… but by being open to opportunities and taking small steps towards my goals, I was able to achieve my dream.

Starting small and growing as you go is a great approach for anyone. There is no secret to success, it’s putting in the work. Creating consistency and becoming the best version of your skillset that you can. It allows you to build your skills, gain experience, and make mistakes without risking too much.
