We caught up with the brilliant and insightful Brittany N. Stephenson a few weeks ago and have shared our conversation below.
Brittany N., thanks for taking the time to share your stories with us today Let’s start big picture – what are some of biggest trends you are seeing in your industry?
The desire to engage “hired help” continues to rise in this almost post-pandemic world. Remote work existed in some capacity before we turned our spare rooms into workspaces and get used to “new norms” but the reliance and value of qualified VAs and OBMs is at an all time high. As companies and organizations redefine their budgets, outsourcing becomes more and more attractive and cost effective.
The time at home cultivated entrepreneurs, business ideas, and an overall appreciation for time-management as well. What’s the best way to #reclaimyourtime? Hiring help.
Brittany N., love having you share your insights with us. Before we ask you more questions, maybe you can take a moment to introduce yourself to our readers who might have missed our earlier conversations?
Busy Bee’s Virtual Assistance & Management, LLC® is your premier virtual full-service administrative support agency founded over 6 years ago to manage the needs of busy people. We take pride in helping you save time.
After Time Keeper Brittany N. Stephenson spent much of her professional career in executive assistant roles of increasing responsibilities with local governments and municipalities, she understood the importance of time management and founded Busy Bee’s Virtual Assistance and Management, LLC® to help busy professionals, organizations, businesses, and non-profit reclaim their time.
Busy Bee’s Virtual Assistance & Management, LLC® works with clients across the country, offering an array of services including virtual assistance, online business management services, accountability coaching, and training seminars.
The company embraces its commitment to community and is in its second year of providing paid internships throughout summer and winter seasons through our EVEE Program. We are proud of our BEE, YOU Scholarship Awards-also in its second year. The BEE, YOU Scholarship Awards provide three working students with $1500 each. The purpose of the awards is to offer financial support to individuals who are working (part-time or full-time) students in order to pursue their education, goals, and dreams.
Busy Bee’s Virtual Assistance & Management, LLC® is dedicated to the cultivation of entrepreneurs of all ages, having had the privilege of speaking in various capacities for schools and organizations.
Can you talk to us about how your side-hustle turned into something more.
100% yes and after 6 years, it’s still amazing to think about! Busy Bee’s Virtual Assistance & Management, LLC® was birthed out of a passion to help an incredibly busy friend do life a little easier. From meal prepping to travel management, I set out to simply assist. Helping others carry a heavy load has always been a pillar of my identity so marry that with my appreciation for organization, and you have the core of Busy Bee’s Virtual Assistance & Management, LLC®.
I could write a book on Busy Bee’s Virtual Assistance & Management, LLC®’s but I’ll spare the readers #TIME- that’s what we do.
With more than 98% of our clients engaging us because of a referral, we’ve been able to provide the BEE STANDARD over the years -FULL TIME-because of our trusted and reliable team members.
What do you think helped you build your reputation within your market?
Showing up (yes, even virtually) and simply doing good work are two important gems I share during my trainings as ways to build a lasting reputation within this market.
Reliability matters, as our clients are often overwhelmed with busyness of personal and professional endeavors. As a largely asynchronous team, maintaining a strong sense of accountability is imperative as well. We take pride in the work we do.
We believe the passion and professionalism clients experience is why they keep talking about us.
