Julie Sanchez, Founder
My name is Julie Sanchez and in a nutshell, my job is to make your job easier. As your Virtual Assistant, I am here to offer you the “gain” from my more than 20 years of corporate experience as an executive administration and business operations specialist. In my former life as an employee of others, I was thrilled to provide professional services to entrepreneurs, closely held private firms, mid-size corporations, and large public Fortune 500 companies in a variety of industries. I simply love the “business of business” in all its many shapes, forms, and sizes.
Those 20 years in the corporate arena gave me a broad base of technical and soft skills that I continue to leverage today. I take no small amount of pride in being able to fully connect and partner with my clients. First and foremost, my position is one of customer service to clients based on trust. I work hard to gain a deeper understanding of my clients’ business, pain points, and areas of greatest need. We then focus together on solving the thorniest of those business challenges.
One of my favorite tasks is to provide coaching and professional development support to entrepreneurs. I absolutely understand from first-hand experience that many business owners work solo or with limited staff, and therefore do not have ready access to mentors who can provide clarity, direction, and coaching toward achievable goals. As a dedicated coaching partner, I utilize mentoring skills and active management techniques gained in the corporate world and scale them to fit the needs and desires of my clients and their companies.
I am also location independent, but what in the world does that mean? Simply that I can partner with individuals and businesses regardless of their physical location. I get to live where I want, you get to work where you want, and best of all we get to work together without the need to actually sit next to one another! Technology is truly a wonderful thing.
In my spare time, I am an avid reader, writer, hiker and all-around sports enthusiast. I currently make my home on the Central Coast of California but travel the world in search of adventure. To date, I have visited more than 22 of the United States, 16 islands in the Caribbean and Bahamas, at least 10 countries in Europe, six states in Mexico, three countries in Central and South America, one province in Canada, and spent one blissful month in Australia.
