From time to time we feature businesses and services that we love - people whom we genuinely think our readers will benefit from knowing about. This interview isn't sponsored or paid for in any way; it's a 100% authentic shout-out to a person we think is actually amazing!
Confession: for the longest time, when other online business owners talked about having a 'VA' we just smiled and nodded along. We assumed a VA (voice actor? value adder?) was a special kind of employee needed by only the initiated few - big-time bloggers and online business whizzes who were much cooler than us.
As it turns out, a VA (that's a virtual assistant, for those still too shy to ask) can be used by almost any kind of business owner or entrepreneur. And it's probably cheaper, faster and more convenient than the admin support you have in place right now!
Korryn from Encore Admin Consulting recently hit us up to write some copy for her. She was completely fantastic to work with, and as we wrote about her services we realised that what she offers is brilliant. So we asked her if she'd come on the blog and share some more about herself, and about what a VA actually does.
Here's our interview with Korryn:
As creative people, business owners, and lovers of the world - one of our core values is sharing.
Sharing fantastic businesses with you, our clients, because you deserve to know about them and access their services. Sharing our fantastic client base with our friends in business, because they deserve to work for great people. Sharing love and support across a network of startups and creative people and solo business owners, because we know it can be hard in this wilderness of work.
In this sharing spirit, from time to time our blog will showcase other creatives and business bosses. Today we're super stoked to be featuring Chrissy from Letters by Chrissy.
Chrissy is a gentle soul and a meticulous worker. She does beautiful hand-lettering for logos, invitations, custom art pieces and other things that need gorgeous lettering.
Chrissy did the logo for my (Kamina's) personal blog, Nina Kardia. During that process, Chrissy demonstrated one of the things that makes her stand out from other designers I've worked with - she has a heart for really, truly understanding and loving your business. She wants to get behind your message 100%. And she wants a simple piece of lettering that speaks to your audience - with flicks and slants, flourishes and curves - in a way that feels like you.
Enjoy this Q & A with Chrissy!
