I’ve been working with Katie for almost three years now and how we work together has evolved a lot over that time. Which is appropriate because how I’ve worked has changed in the last three years, and so Katie has adapted how she works accordingly. For me she has gone from being someone who performed certain delegated tasks that it made more sense for me to outsource, to someone who is more like a virtual form of the executive assistants I might have had working for me in my corporate jobs. She’s smart, and works really well when you let her understand your business and what you’re trying to achieve, and then let her do some thinking for you in the context of whatever it is you’re trying to accomplish. The chances are that she’ll have ideas you won’t have had. And that if you run with them, you’ll get a better, more value-added outcome, than you’d imagined.
She’s also a lovely person, meaning that you’ll have fun working together. I can’t recommend her more highly.
I’m very proud of the progress I’ve made in my business. I have the very optimistic feeling that I will be able to continue to grow and try more ambitious, difficult-seeming products, projects, ways of working, because with your help I’ll be able to handle whatever new challenges and extra tasks such things bring.
I’m working in a different way, reaching more people, and earning more, which in turn is great for me and my family. There are a number of things that I’ve done to get to this point, but the most significant factor that has enabled me to do this was the decision to work with you. Thank you!!!
I’ve compared working with Katie like gathering together all of the ingredients you’d want for breakfast, and waking up the next morning to find the most perfect, full English ready-and-waiting for you the next day.
It really is that simple. And that good!
It is actually really hard to put into words how much Katie has helped Digital Dragonfly since we started working together. I simply can’t imagine what I used to do before! Katie has been able to take a range of tasks off my plate freeing up my time to focus on other aspects of the business. Not only does she keep my diary under control but she understands how I work with clients and can makes sure that everything runs smoothly behind the scenes. It gives me great peace of mind knowing that someone else has got an eye on things and is there to help me make sure we have fine-tuned our systems and processes. Katie is an essential part of the Digital Dragonfly team and there is no way we would have been able to grow and develop in the way we have without her help.
Simply put, I wouldn’t have the business I have today without Katie. Making the decision to engage the services of a VA was a very significant and exciting step forward for me and I feel extremely fortunate to have found Katie. In order to grow, I needed someone reliable, intelligent and professional to handle many of the day-to-day administrative responsibilities involved in order to run a successful business. Katie’s role is absolutely paramount in allowing me to concentrate on the writing, delivery and customer relationships, knowing that my invoices are being handled, bookings made and accounts processed. Katie is also a great source of support, as a successful business owner herself, and is able to offer a professional ‘ear’, sounding board and adviser as my company continues to develop.
I was introduced to Katie by a colleague and friend, I was finding my new business was starting to get a bit busier and I was being pulled in different directions. It was great to find someone like Katie who not only can help get my business organised but also helps it to develop. I really enjoy working together, it is very productive and it has enabled me to focus on a number of things I wouldn’t have achieved this year on my own.
I consult to a wide variety of industries with competing demands and expectations. Additionally much of my work requires sensitivity and discretion. Katie always strikes the right tone and is mindful of how any communication could be construed. I took it for granted that Katie would be a good organiser (she is) but what has really impressed me is her ability to bring shape to my thinking. My mind tends to work at tangents and Katie has learned to sift and distill these random thoughts in to cogent and detailed plans. She is patient, consistent and constructive. I find her a real asset to my business and have recommended her to several friends and colleagues.
Katie always provides a very professional, personable and efficient service and delivers tremendous value for money. She is very flexible and adaptable and seems to be able to handle anything we can throw at her – in a relatively short time she has become a key member of our growing business!
