Hi there. I’m Anissa, and I’m the owner and mastermind behind the Virtual Sidekick. I love helping growing business owners like you get through those bumpy moments of growth and expansion, and actualize your vision.
I spent my first five years as an administrative assistant working in a university, perfecting the ins and out of what I do. I quickly became most known for doing my work effectively and efficiently. Eventually I became the Administrative Fieldwork Assistant, taking on tasks to help the Fieldwork Program grow at the university I worked at. I managed contracts, workflow of two faculty coordinators, and student databases. The work was hard and kept me on my toes, but it was a time to sharpen my strengths and hone in on what I do best- help people manage their businesses.
I absolutely loved my work, and I was good at what I did, but when my beautiful kiddos came into my life, I knew I had to make a change. I had to quit my full time job and stay home with them so I could watch them grow.
I worked at home, developing my delightfully geeky handmade business, Saibinel Studios. I absolutely loved getting to stay at home, watch my three beautiful kids grow up, and spend my time making comic book creations.
But. I still missed my old job.
I realized I just have a knack for the administrative side of things, and I missed doing that work.
I realized small businesses have a need. A need for someone to run their back-end, do the nitty gritty administrative and managerial work so they have time and space to do the creative work they do best.
And that’s how The Virtual Sidekick was born! I saw small business superheroes out there fighting to save their businesses, and I new I could swoop in and help them save the day.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s join forces make all your biggest business dreams come true.
