MELISSA SMITH, THE PVA

Because You Can’t Do It All Yourself!

Hire the Right VA

Are you looking to hire a Virtual Assistant and don’t know where to begin? 

Become a Successful VA

Are you ready to take your online business to the next level? 

If you want to go fastgo alone. If you want to go far, go together.” —African Proverb. 

THE BENEFITS

Imagine working with someone who can anticipate what you are going to need and save you from having to figure this out on your own through trial and error.

What could be gained when not losing time and money to learn what someone else already knows? Think about how much further you could go in a shorter period of time because you’re not doing it all yourself. What makes working with me different is I’m intimately a part of each half of the equation. Working with me is never a guessing game. You’ll always have peace of mind knowing I’m taking care of you will need and want next. 

Who do you work with?

I work with people who have a clear vision of what they want to achieve. You don’t need to know how you’re going to reach your vision, but without a clear vision I can’t put together a proven process to make sure you are successful. 

What is your success rate?

I have a 98% success rate when matching clients with the right virtual assistant. VAs who follow the step-by-step instructions I lay out are typically fully booked in 90 days and raising their rates in six (6) months.

When do people hire you?

Sadly many people hire me after failing because they tried to do it on their own. No matter how often you have “failed” I have the right process to solve your problem.  I will show you what didn’t work and why then provide a successful plan proven to work.

Why do people hire you?

I’m the premier VA Matchmaker in the industry. Many of my clients cannot be named because I’m actually their competition! With a business run off of 90% referrals I’m the trusted go-to source for providing peace of mind. When you don’t have the time to get it right yourself and can’t afford to get it wrong, you hire me. Virtual assistants work with me because they want to be the best in business and work with the best in the business.

How soon will I see results?

Matchmaking clients are typically working with their VA within 21 days. I promise to have all my interviews done within five (5) business days. The rest is up to the client’s schedule. Virtual assistants will begin to see results and get further clarity within the first week. We hit the ground running!

“I have to say – you have such a great way of presenting info. You knew I was on vacation and you gave me the cue that everything was OK in the subject line. I really do appreciate your attention to detail.”

MY AVOCADO STORY: One Seed Two Halves

I grew up, the middle child, of two parents who truly served and taught me “It is better to give than to receive”. I can remember vividly the first meal I “cooked” and served my father when I was five. It was an avocado sandwich (yes, I grew up in California). The joy I felt with his over exaggerated excitement was so powerful I knew at that moment I was called to a life of service by the time I was 10, I knew I wanted to be a secretary like my mother. My mother served as an administrative professional for over 40 years and was my role model of service, support, and leadership. By watching her I realized that support and assistants hold everything together and allows those we serve to reach their goals and dreams. Lifting off the weight so they can rise. Whether that’s an executive feeling the weight of overwhelm who needs assistance. Or the VA feeling the weight of not being sure how to build a successful practice.


It’s been said that if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. I help people go far. Together. It takes two halves to make a whole. I’m the seed that helps you grow from where you are to where you want to go. Because you can’t do it all yourself… 

Testimonials

Wow! No wonder you started charging for the consult. I think it’s brilliant!  And now that I know even MORE about your process, I will start requiring it for the people who go through my upper level program.”
T. Denise

Physical Therapy Contractor

“Melissa’s ability to figure out what her clients need and then provide support in that area is amazing. As an assistant, she can zero in on how to help her clients in ways that leave them feeling as if a weight was lifted from their shoulders. As a matchmaker to V.A.’s and clients, she knows the exact questions to ask, and then precisely what to seek when pairing the two. This produces a symbiotic relationship between V.A. and client that allows both to feel as if they are fulfilling their personal missions. Anyone able to experience working with Melissa should feel lucky—she is truly gifted at her profession.”
