Are you considering getting into the field of virtual administration or are you a company looking to hire a virtual assistant for the first time–or find a new hire for an established virtual team?

Virtual assisting is a relatively new field coming from the expansion of the capabilities one can perform over the internet.

While there are different virtual assisting programs to give individuals the beginner skills to go out and find work, Meadows Resources differs from the competition as a virtual assistant agency in the direct one-on-one guidance they give to students and how that carries over to those looking to hire a reputable virtual assistant.

Trained and Vetted Resources

What does this mean? Meadows Resources ensures that the resources, or virtual assistants, they have trained and offer employment placement are the best of the bunch. They are extensively trained in the subjects regarding virtual administration and have completed training while showing they have the ability to be an asset to any company looking to hire a virtual assistant. This ensures quality on both ends, in the training and the subsequent work done after completion of training.

Background Checks

This may seem like a no-brainer, but there are still places where virtual assistants are not background checked nor are the clients given to the virtual assistants. Without this information, there could be trouble, but Meadows Resources ensures all who take part in virtual assisting, on both ends, are background checked and pass with flying colors.

Lindsey Meadows of Meadows Resources and Meadows VA School has recently been given the honor of the 2017 Woman of the Year award from the American Business Women’s WEWEN chapter.

This award not only encapsulates her as a person and her drive to see others succeed in virtual assisting but also her credentials as a business owner and self-created woman entrepreneur.

With over 10 years experience in Human Resources, Recruiting, and Staffing. Meadows was able to create both a virtual staffing agency to help virtual assistants find work, but also a virtual academy to enrich and teach incoming virtual assistants and clients on how to work well in a virtual platform.

When did you decide you wanted to be a virtual assistant and what made you consider the change?

I originally went to Texas A&M for music and then went into accounting but realized accounting wasn’t what I enjoyed. I went into business and fell in love with marketing. My next thought was what can I do with marketing? I started working with Houston Area Council and the American Women’s Business Association and became their Publicity Coordinator and I would say that is where my career in virtual marketing took off.

Did your career background and experience fit into the general realm of virtual assistant work or was this a complete change in career?

It felt like something I was always supposed to do. I did go to college as a music major. From looking at that to where I am now is a huge jump. I ultimately didn’t want to be a music major and thought “Well maybe I can become a music teacher.” I then really thought I wanted to do accounting after jumping into business and then moved to general business as my concentration as a start with the notion that I could change my mind later. I was like “I will take this accounting class,” and realized it wasn’t for me. I then went to marketing, but before went to management briefly. I decided “Let’s do marketing,” but stuck with a general business degree to learn a bit of everything. I always felt strongly about marketing even through the changes in major I made in college.

When did you decide you wanted to be a virtual assistant and what made you consider the change?

I actually was attempting to launch my own VA business last year. With having more than 15 years in administration, clerical, social media management, I felt that it was time for a change. I had already been doing the work and I wanted to do that from home with my clients.

Did your career background and experience fit into the general realm of virtual assistant work or was this a complete change in career?

For me, it was kind of both. It wasn’t a complete career change because of most of my background being in administration and I worked in administrative roles. It was a slight change because it moved from clerical to a contractor so it was a little different but played up on skills. Also going from a brick and mortar-type job to working from home can be a change.

When did you decide you wanted to be a virtual assistant and what made you consider the change?

One day at the end of 2015 I was reflecting on the year I had and I was annoyed that I was spending so much time in the car sitting in traffic going to and from work.  And if I wanted to have any experiences in life outside of work it would all be focused for the weekends.  I was basically living most of my life (experience wise) for less than 30% of the year.  Don’t get me wrong, I like accounting.  I like learning, working hard, solving problems and stimulating my mind.  There is more to life than making it all about work.  I believe in a healthy work/life balance.  Although, I am a person that works hard at everything I do and I do push myself to learn, grow and take on new/different challenges.  I was just more so tired of not having as much control over my life, if that makes sense.  Change was important, and once I started remote work…I realized I was more productive.  More productive with work and outside work, I was happier.  I found that more of the goals I made in the beginning of the year were getting crossed off.  It gave me a sense of purpose, since you can’t slack or it affects you.  It challenged me in a way that I wanted.

Creating your own opportunities

Forward Thinking

Hi! My name is Lindsey. Reflecting on my past is the best way to have forward thinking on our future. With over ten years’ experience in human resources and recruiting—five of those years in a virtual capacity. Working for dozens of industries worldwide in traditional and virtual settings. I started my company because I always thought, “Why am I at work when I could be doing the same exact thing from home and spending more time with my kids?” I hit the brick wall of being a working single mother. My kids need me and I need them. If I leave work because my kids are sick then I’m a bad employee and a good mom, and if I have to work then I am a good employee and a bad mom.
