MEET THE TEAM

Agnes Nemeth

I am an introvert. It takes time for me to get used to with new situations and people, but when I get comfortable I love connecting and being part of a team. I love to create something better and bigger than me, and if I can see and understand the purpose and the goals I give 100 percent to make it happen.

I am a strategic thinking person, with a logistics degree, I really enjoy create systems, optimizing movement involved activities, create creative solutions to make workflow and operations easier.

I have experience in general customer support, I love designing systems for small companies in Excel (save working hours with a software everyone uses, and do not have to spend a lot of money for developing), I also know how to use Infusionsoft, creating sales funnels, slides, analyzing data and make it presentable (for executive summaries). I have leadership, training, organizing skills.

Elizabeth Smith

Deeply desiring dexterous behind-the-scenes backing for your business? I am calm, competent, collaborative. My “why” is working with beings blessed with awareness about their passion, power and purpose. You will regain time to work on your business instead of in your business:
Missing the tech know-how? -> I will figure it out & implement it for you.
Written your magnum opus? -> I will edit, give feedback, format & prep for publication.
Require social media graphics? -> I will source & fine-tune images, create the graphics & schedule them.
“I need someone to do this for me!” -> Need something done but don’t see it listed? Teach me & I shall do it for you.

Irina Burciaga

Moves of change
Being born in Mexico City, moved with my family to the Mexican Caribbean when I was 9 years old, and based in Germany for nearly eight years made me realize I tend to take my time to adapt. New cultures, food, rules, marriage, giving birth, and even the weather change you in very unexpected ways.
From computer technician to teaching Computer Science in high schools to content marketing
I started to work for my father at my tender 17.

I was on charge of helping to keep desktops and all their accessories free of trash, keep their software updated, keep clients at bay, and even operate different accounting software, which proved that I was in no way a good fit for the bookkeeping world.

During this time a copy of Photoshop came to me (long before the CS series started), and right there I knew the graphic world was my call (at least as a hobby.) I could literally spend entire days without sleep, working my way through Photoshop.

After some months of working for my father at the same time I was teaching Computer Science in a private academy, and studying my Informatics career, I finally cut the umbilical cord and devoted the rest of my professional career in Mexico to teach English (which I totally learned on my own), Computer’s Theory, programming (fancy called “coding” these days), Operating Systems Theory, Windows, Networks, and Photoshop and CorelDraw.

But it turned out I started craving to have my own business, that’s when I tried several ideas, such as making my own line of ice creams (lots of hard work!), becoming a teacher of Spanish and English as a second language (way too expensive and I was done teaching.)

Then I met hubby, had my first child, moved to Germany, had my last baby, learned German and tried to build an online empire, just to have it as the biggest flop in my life.

The project was about teaching people how to make a kind of baby gift called “diaper cakes” or “nappy cakes”, but as inexperienced as I was, I never give a serious thought about how to monetize it, so I ended up having a small audience, working more than in a corporate job, and earning €0,00!

Needles to say I ditch the project, but the skills of building a website from scratch (using SBI! and WordPress), product photography (which I hate), the basics of SEO, photo retouching and writing tutorials stuck as my wins.

Then I thought about becoming a VA and that’s when I got the rare opportunity to help build an online resource for new VAs, made by VAs, aka the VA Cafe Online, and it is thanks to this work that I found out I could actually help business owners by creating content that attracts the clients they want.
