You know, the moment I decided to become an accidental entrepreneur, I was giddy with anticipation. But I have to admit, it certainly wasn’t smooth sailing at first. Eager to translate my two decades of experience into this brave new world, I quickly discovered that there were over 5 billion Google results on the topic, each claiming to hold the secret to success. Talk about overwhelming!

The transition from the corporate world to solo entrepreneur felt like a rollercoaster ride, with all its exhilarating loops, dizzying highs, and speedy plummets. Oh, do I remember the mental gymnastics I needed to perform to adjust to this mind-blowing new way of working! I journeyed from the comfort of a close-knit team to the solitude of being captain of my own ship, facing the isolation and uncertainty head-on. And to top it all off, I often found myself in spaces where I couldn’t see many who looked like me.

But you know what? Each challenge fueled my passion even more, inspiring me to create the VA World Conference. It’s a place where we can all come together, share our stories, and lift each other up as we navigate this ever-evolving landscape. It’s my heart’s desire to offer the support I once craved, providing an inclusive community that values the joy of service and empowers others to soar.

The Virtual Assistant World Conference is the product of a collaboration between several women of color entrepreneurs. It lays forth a vision in the form of a gathering — not merely a virtual conference, but an ongoing global virtual community that radiates out from there. We feel it’s important to have both spaces to congregate and interact.

We would love to extend an invitation to join our new FB Community,

Freelancers in the US are expected to reach over 86.5 million by 2027, or 50.9% of the overall number of employees in the US.

The largest outsourcing market was attributed to the Americas with $62 billion of revenue.

Our commitment at the VA World Conference is to empower all women, with a special focus on minority individuals, to succeed as virtual and remote professionals. 

Collectively and joyously, we stand as a vibrant remote community from countless corners of the world. Every keyboard tap, every shared screen, bridges miles and turns them into nothing less than a closely-knit neighborhood. There’s a certain magic in what we create together, a radiant force of positivity that breaks social, geographical, and cultural barriers with unyielding resilience.

We feed off each other’s wisdom, bring to light our own experiences, and stir with knowledge-sharing.

VA World Conference is our celebration of empowerment, inclusion, and shared triumphs.
