Believe it or not, I started with a Bachelor of Social Work...yup, I was fully committed to becoming a social worker through and through, but something was tugging at me...
I always knew that I was good with computers, learned all the shortcuts, could fix minor problems or find simpler formulas in excel. Things I thought I was just good at being a millennial and all. As much as I had a plan to become a Social Worker, I was intrigued when I would hear about people working for themselves, on their own schedule. I never imagined I would be building a business for myself..and then I was introduced to the world of Virtual Assistants.
So, I took a chance, invested all of my savings into a Virtual Assistant program. I started with social media management and small tasks until I tapped into the world of Tech & Operations. From then, Dear Kels grew, and grew fast! What started with just me, has grown into a team of skilled experts that offer assistance from tech to website design, Pinterest to Podcasts and so much more.
Since then, I have worked with countless business owners on defining, refining and polishing the tech and operations side of their businesses so they can focus on what they are good at. Little did I know how imperative my time in Social Work would be when it came to creating my own business!
My time in social work not only taught me the importance of a person-centered approach, but paved the way I look at the needs of every business owner I encounter. There is no one-way to run a business and each businesses needs are unique with their tech, automations, copy, marketing strategy etc.
I am so grateful for the road that led me to where we, Dear Kels as a team, are now and cannot wait to see where we go!
