When the judges of the annual Virtual Assistant of the Year competition came to assess the skill set, client list and CV of Value Add Business Solutions’ Michelle Smith, they knew they were onto a winner.
Michelle’s business might be virtual but what she offers is solid gold. Not only did this Glasgow-based small business superstar scoop Scottish VA of the year, but she went on to beat off the competition to be crowned UK Virtual Assistant of the year. In recent years she has been nominated for several business awards including winning Outstanding Virtual Assistant of the Year.
Michelle applies her winning ways to enterprise too. With Value Add Business Solutions, Michelle supports other ambitious entrepreneurs with administration services as and when they need them. By providing tailored packages and one-off project work she helps save them precious time, and money too.
With a menu of services which includes book-keeping, payroll, social media, research, training, general administration and email marketing, Michelle and her specialist associates simply take the plate-spinning away and the strain off. In doing so, she gives her clients room to get on with the all-important business of income generation and growth.
