Leave the rat race behind and create a business full of freedom & flexibility
Hello and welcome.
I’m Susan Mershon, aka The Techie Mentor™.
I want to help you start, run and grow your thriving Virtual Assistant business to give you the lifestyle you crave with more time, more freedom and more money.
That’s what the Techie Mentor™ is all about!
It’s all about you..
I know that you dream of leaving your office job, working for someone else, to reclaim your precious time by having your own business. It’s easy to imagine working from home (or anywhere you like), spending only the hours you want to on work and having the freedom to devote time to your family, your self-care and your passions. If only you knew where to begin.
If you have ever tried to piece together all the things you find on the Internet (YouTube + Google) into a working system that gets results, you know how frustrating, confusing and time-consuming it can be.
Here’s my story
As a corporate employee, I had loved my job. I enjoyed the work and the people I worked with … until I didn’t.
I had taken some time for the birth of my second son and when I came back ready to pick up where I left off, I was informed that I would be doing a different job. While I understand that the company has every right to assign work as they see fit, I was not happy.
I decided to start my own Virtual Assistant business so that I would have a say in what I did, when I did it and whom I did it for. I wanted to create a lifestyle that I loved.
For me now, it’s all about giving back and helping others. My ultimate dream is to build a women’s center for single mothers to teach them business and technical skills to create a better life for them and their children. I’m going to start working out the details later in 2018, offering it as an online program and eventually, opening a brick and mortar center. Stay tuned for more details!
When I first started my Virtual Assistant business, it was because I wanted more time for my son. I wanted to get him ready for school, be there when the bus dropped him off, and attend school functions. I had worked in corporate America for over twenty years and was not available for my family like I wanted to be.
I gathered what information I could find, and scraped together ideas and concepts from anywhere I could find them. I worked on my business during the evening and weekends, all while continuing to work at a full-time job and with an infant at home.
I often wondered what could I have done better if I had a mentor?
Could I have avoided the frustration of not knowing where to find answers and maybe avoided overwhelm and analysis paralysis?
Could my experience as a software instructor help others learn in-demand skills?
What if I told you that you can have a thriving Virtual Assistant business without going through all the trials and tribulations that I did?
In fact, you can!
Whether you are just starting out, or part-way into your new career, I can help.
I’ve taken all my programs, systems & tools that I’ve taught to over 4,000 students and created a signature system to help you learn the exact skills you need to know to build a thriving Virtual Assistant business with zero fluff or hype; just the stuff that gets results.
It’s the same system that I used to create and run my own 6-figure Virtual Assistant business. I still use it, because it works!
My VA Success System™ includes 5 phases, each with its own unique set of programs to help you design your Virtual Assistant business.
