Introducing The Virtual Assistant Geek’s Blog
Welcome to Virtual Assistant Geeks!
Let me introduce myself. My name is Aundrea Aloe and I am here to help you with your Virtual Assistant needs.
I have to be honest here…I am an introvert. I can’t stand in front of a crowd and give a speech, I am very uncomfortable around new people when it comes to business, as I get stuck in my head…worried about the questions I will ask as opposed to the questions I SHOULD ask! Which is why I am excited about this blog.
I should also introduce my husband, Mark. I am the quirky persona or voice and also the “computer geek”…he is the corporate, more serious voice. My background is in administration. His is in sales and customer service. We make a great team! We met in Calgary, Alberta. We have moved around a lot through the years, as he was a Management Consultant. It took us to Florida, then Georgia, and again back to Florida. We now live in Ontario, my hometown. I have had to adapt to different kinds of administration work, as each place we lived…I changed jobs. I have worn a lot of hats! I have always been a “computer geek” since the beginning of time. Loved to take courses online to “up” my skills. Here is a list of programs that I have worked with (my favs):
Mac Office Suite
Wave (which is my current favorite app for those of you starting out!)
Canva (love this program!)
Email – Newsletters
Short Videos for Websites or Social Media
Website Design & Maintenance
*I have worked with other programs…if your program is not listed above, please contact me to see if I can help.
I have also done transcription work with REV.com. I do have a medical administration background, which helps in this area. I should also mention that I have taken many courses over the years, including courses in SEO, WordPress and social media (Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn). I thought it was time that I should have certificates to acknowledge what I know! I am also a proud member of CAVA – Canadian Association of Virtual Assistants. You can see my profile here.
I have been helping family and friends for years to create their online presence and thought it was time to start this business, but more importantly, this blog…as a tool for other small business owners. We will be covering the basics of having an online presence, cover questions about social media and will be reviewing different apps/programs that I have tried to make our online processes run smoothly! I can’t wait!
I welcome you to contact me anytime, with any suggestions, or comments. I hope this becomes a small community of sorts, where we can learn from each other and offer advice to the best of our knowledge.
