This week, I’m very excited to introduce you to Andie, a stay-at-home mom of 5 kids, a successful Virtual Assistant, and a 90 Day VA Star Student.

Before embarking on her online journey, Andie was a homeschooling mom for her FIVE children. Two of her kids have special needs, and she was given a stipend from the government to care for them. But it meant their dreams of being location independent and traveling as much as they wanted were stifled for a long time.

Today, things look a little different for Andie and their family of 7.

In this episode, find out how Andie made the transition into working online as a Virtual Assistant while still remaining home with her children and her top tips for other aspiring online workers!
