Let me properly introduce myself...

I’m Amy Lester, Start-Up & Virtual-Assistant Mentor.

I live just outside Birmingham, UK in a tiny village with one shop.

With over a decade of experience in Business Administration, Operations and Marketing, I’ve seen it all. I work with my clients on regaining their time so they can focus on taking their business to the next level.

I’ve been in a job I ended up hating, hitting a glass ceiling and wished the things in this course were handed to me when I first started out. I’ve designed this course to share my experiences with you and help you from making the mistakes I’ve seen.

I’ve seen the pros and cons of start-up life and have lived through what works, and what doesn’t.

This course is a goldmine for knowledge, worksheets, templates and plenty of tips that I’ve learned along the way!

But, that's not all...
