SFPP 119: Using Virtual Assistants To Grow Your Business Featuring Stacey Krolow

SFPP 119: Using Virtual Assistants To Grow Your Business Featuring Stacey Krolow

Stacey Krolow is a badass photographer who found herself experiencing the inevitable burnout creeping in when her photography business started getting successful.

When she went on the hunt for a virtual assistant, she couldn't find one that was geared specifically towards photographers and creative entrepreneurs.

Then Stacey had a lightbulb moment and realized if she had this problem, other creatives probably did too.

Which is why she started Pepper.

Pepper is a North American team of virtual assistants who handle the BS (errrr…business stuff) so the creatives can create.

They do email management, contracts and invoices, public relations, client touchpoints, blogging, newsletters, social media, and more!

Pepper believes success is freedom from the 24/7 hustle and that work/life balance is the new black.

It's 3:30 am.

Now you're going month by month in your Google cal trying to calculate how many miles you can deduct.

It doesn't have to be like that though!

On today's episode, Emma Ball joins me to discuss how financial organization can help you make better decisions for your business and more importantly, give you peace of mind.
