HEY, I'M amy
The founder, adventurer & dreamer behind Seed Virtual Assistants
I started exactly where you started...
Dreaming of a more flexible lifestyle that allowed me flexibility to spend more time with my growing family I wanted to find a way to leverage my existing skills and start a business working from home, I knew I didn’t want to do MLM as I’d tried it before and it wasn’t for me so like most with a new idea I took to the world of Google and decided I’d start a business as a Virtual Assistant.
Within a few months, I was working with clients from all over the country, embracing the flexibility that my new business gave me. However, I soon realised that working from home also meant missing the connections and sense of community that comes with working in an office. I was craving that connection and didn't feel like I had a place that I "belonged" in the online space - perhaps that's my small town girl roots showing their colours.
That's when Seed Virtual Assistants was born
I decided to start Seed Virtual Assistants, which at the time was just a networking Facebook group for other VAs and I put the word out in a few online Facebook Group communities inviting VAs and people interested in becoming VAs to the group to connect.
The group quickly grew to 200 members on its first night, and now consists of over 3000 members.
Since then, Seed has expanded to include online courses, a membership program, masterminds, retreats, templates and we are the founders of the Australian Virtual Assistant Industry Awards.
I'm incredibly proud of the strong community and support network that Seed now is - giving vas across australia a place to call home for their businesses.
For me personally, my "why" has transformed from wanting a flexible business to now being fiercely passionate about sharing this opportunity with others who want to build a life of freedom and flexibility and build a business defined by their own version of success (not the version we see being flaunted all over social media and not the version being controlled by corporate values and KPIs)
I'm on a mission.
The core purpose and mission I have for Seed has always remained around connection.
TO BE THE MOST CONNECTED VIRTUAL ASSISTANT COMMUNITY IN AUSTRALIA
I often describe my values for Seed as "small town values", that feeling of authentic relationships, the feeling of being able to reach out to your community for support and having a space to call home for your business.
We all start from somewhere, I started with a vision to make $500 a week to contribute to our household income and to not have to go back to my corporate career after having my babies. I started with zero clients, zero business experience and zero idea really - look where we are now. If I can do it, you can do it too
I'm all about
The simple life, community, progress over perfection, flexibility, authentic relationships and keeping it real
I'm not about
Competition, hustling, making things harder than they need to be, comparison or superficiality
