Welcome to episode ten of The Lindsey Holder Podcast! 

Want to know the secret sauce on how a Small Business owner manages it all? Well, it’s not really a secret…it’s called a VA – a Virtual Assistant. 

There is NO way I could manage three business models at one time if it weren’t for my VA. I have several VA’s and one of them is the beyond talented Kate Oatway.

I found Kate through a Facebook group for Virtual Assistants and she instantly blew me away from the beginning with her communication, professionalism, and her portfolio. I knew she was a hidden rockstar and I needed her on my Virtual team! I also knew she could only take on a limited number of clients and I was one of the lucky ones, so I keep her on a retainer. 

Kate is a design and marketing expert, passionate about transforming the way bold, creative, and innovative business owners survive in a world that demands we show up, produce, and perform like never before! Whether it’s supporting a solo-entrepreneur keeping them on top of all things social media, a product launch or designing a new website to house your blog, Kate is your go-to! 

She helps entrepreneurs build dream brands through intentional digital strategy, design, and efficient implementation! 

This episode entails an inside listen on How I run my business efficiently and with ease, please welcome my Virtual Assistant Kate!
