Given these requirements, I am certain that I have the necessary skills to successfully do the job adeptly and perform above expectations.

I am a detail-oriented professional who has been consistently praised as focused by my co-workers and management. Over the course of my 40-year career, I’ve developed a skill set directly relevant to the Virtual Assistant role you are hiring for, including Word Press, Leadingpages, Google G-suite and am familiar with Infusionsoft.

Hello Ms. Herfurth,

1. Your job posting is refreshing!
2. I possess the skills you’re looking for and more!
3. Your business and website intrigues me…

Let me start by addressing the specifics of what you’re looking for:
1.Sense of humor 🙂
*Does the Pope shit in the woods?!

2. Excellent business communication skills
*Contrary to my sarcastic behavior, I pride myself in exceptional business communication. I enjoy proofing content marketing for grammatical excellence, and communicate in a way that is relatable, mostly professional (my audience is always of utmost importance) and either to the point or fluffy if needed.*

3. Regular business hours availability (Eastern time zone, preferably)
*I’m on MST but very used to operating on EST, with slight flexibility*

4 Same day task completion
*I wouldn’t have it any other way as an unchecked task on my to-do list drives me batty.*

5. Organized
*In the most ridiculous way*

6. Detail oriented
*This is my bread and butter*

7. Troubleshooting problems and issues
* I really enjoy a good challenge and using creativity, innovation and passion to succeed. All of which contribute to my style of work and life in general.

In long and short, I’m a project manager by trade and a task driven organizational ninja by passion.

I’d love to talk more about your needs and learn if my skills and expertise could bring ease and organization to your business.
