Picture this...

You work 100% remotely (on your own terms, from anywhere).

You say goodbye to the days of long commutes and having to negotiate time off.

You set up a consistent and recurring income for yourself (hello financial independence!).

You achieve a work-life balance that works for YOU.

You join an online business movement
(that's forecasted to grow exponentially in the coming years!).

You work in your zone of genius and feel truly fulfilled by the work you are doing.

— these are just SOME of the benefits that come with being a virtual assistant!

Maybe you're ready to make some extra money from home (cause ya know, inflation), or perhaps you're ready to ditch the cubicle for good...

But fear of the unknown is holding you back — how do you overcome imposter syndrome and make a go at this on your own? How do you start a business? Where do you find clients?

You're overwhelmed by it all and simply have NO idea where to start 👀

But what if I told you that
you're more ready than you think

By leveraging the skills you already have and understanding the EXACT process to find and secure clients, you can create a virtual assistant business that supports the lifestyle that you want...

— WITHOUT any virtual experience (or sending cold DMs).

If I can do it, so can you!

Just a few years ago, I was laid-off from my long-term program management role just weeks before my mat leave was ending — with NO backup plan in place.

(And it turned out to be one of the best damn things that ever happened me!).

I signed my first client just 3 weeks after learning what a VA even was...

And went on to take my VA business from a part-time side hustle to a full-time lucrative career.

Now, I want to help others do the same!

Here are what some VAs in my network have to say about working in the industry...

Virtual assistant desk

"I began working as a virtual assistant for flexibility, as many others do. However, I have discovered that there are so many other benefits that come along with this career, such as personal and professional growth. Since I work with a variety of clientele, I have had the opportunity to learn about many different industries. And because the tools and systems I use are constantly changing, I love the challenge of learning new skills and methods."

— Sara S.

Virtual assistant working

"I left my corporate job in 2012, started a Virtual Assistant services business, and never looked back! In the beginning I wanted more time freedom, unlimited earning potential, and the ability to choose who I worked with. Today, I have a multi-6 figure business with a 7-figure goal in my sights, and I have the privilege of working with so many incredible clients and team members. All this while working 20-30 hours per week, with no evenings or weekends, so that I can be present for my daughter and pursue my hobbies and personal interests."

— Melissa S.

Virtual assistant desk

"Almost 3 years ago, I started my VA journey with over 15 years of administrative and customer service experience. And now? I've now found my true passion in helping empowered women coaches simplify their systems and scale their businesses. I love to fine tune processes to create more efficiency — giving my clients more time for what they need to focus on."

— Cherie D.

Hi, I'm Marissa!

I'm a Canadian lover of systems, fulfilling experiences and all things organizing. I have my BA in psychology and founded Mind at Ease Organizing in 2013 based on my love for organization, my desire to help others, and my knowledge of the positive impact that organization has on mental health and well-being.

While my journey into entrepreneurship began with professional organizing, over the past decade it has evolved to include virtual assistant (VA) work, systems strategy and VA mentorship. Today, I provide online service providers customized solutions to optimize their processes, tools and tech — so they have more time to grow and scale their biz. 

I'm so glad you're here.
