Turn your pain into passion & PROFIT

Paula Burgess’ son has an ADHD diagnosis, he had been expelled from yet another daycare, and Burgess knew in that moment she would need to support him when he went to school.

She started a virtual assistant business so she could be available for her son. Once established, Burgess felt even more pressure with balancing a business and the needs of her child. She looked for support for parents with ADHD children and found nothing.

Today Burgess works as an ADHD coach running support groups, coaching groups, one-on-one coaching, and advocacy for ADHD all from home!

    Great interview!! Paula, how did you know that you wanted to get into the VA biz? That's my obstacle right now. I want to work from home but don't know which business to get started with. Thanks so much!
