Years after I began working with my AssistU trained VA, I find myself wondering how I ever managed without her in my life. She is my champion and my absolute partner for success. Finding her was like finding the most perfect diamond. As a successful author and speaker, having someone who represents me almost as well as I represent myself isn’t a luxury, but a necessity. I couldn’t do what I do, professionally, without her graciously competent support.
Thank you, Anastacia, for pioneering a whole new service and training organization that changed the landscape of entrepreneurship as we know it. My business (and my life) has been forever transformed by the outstanding support of my AssistU Virtual Assistant
When I knew that I needed a virtual assistant to help me manage the growth of my career and business, one of my most trusted colleagues recommended Anastacia’s AssistU as the place to find a great VA partner.
I’m so glad that I chose to work directly with Anastacia via the Registry Gold process. She was a superb guide and coach in helping me identify my needs and what I was looking for in a VA. Anastacia guided me through the process, she helped me to find a truly exceptional group of candidates, and she was a sounding board as I interviewed and found the best possible fit for my career needs at this time. I can’t imagine having gone to AssistU without using the Registry Gold service to make the most of my investment. Registry Gold was an absolutely important first step to make sure I have the best possible VA support for my business going forward!David Rogers
I was absolutely delighted with the service and results I received from Anastacia and the Registry Gold service of AssistU. This was my first time hiring a virtual assistant and I was a little nervous about whether I would be a good fit and vice versa. I originally was referred to Anastacia/AssistU through a coaching colleague who I think very highly of but he is more tech savvy and very comfortable with online tools and remote services. I also have my own executive coach who it turns out Anastacia had worked with for years and he also highly recommended her, so I decided to give it a try.
I initially posted my VA request myself through the regular Registry process and received a couple of responses. While both were excellent candidates, I still wasn’t sure so I decided to work with Anastacia so she could help me. She really took the time to understand my business, who I was and how I worked, and what would be most important in this relationship. Every candidate she screened and recommended to me was very strong. After interviewing five candidates in total, I chose one that I am very excited about — we start working together this week! Even during the interview and selection process, Anastacia helped me weigh the pros and cons and think about what it was I really needed and wanted most. She was responsive, professional, friendly, understanding, patient and very insightful. Being a long time entrepreneur myself, I am very impressed with the business she has built. I would and will wholeheartedly recommend Anastacia and AssistU to any of my colleagues.Susan Saltonstall Duncan
When I contacted Anastacia to help me find a best-of-the-best assistant, I set the bar very high. I wanted someone who was whip-smart and a highly cogent communicator, who was very tech-savvy, emotionally/spiritually intelligent, and meticulous with detail, and who was creative and confident enough to push me to grow my already-successful coaching/consulting practice.
To cut to the chase: I found her. She is all of these things and more. After six months of working with her, I am thrilled with her performance and the impact she’s had on my life. She does the things I didn’t like doing (and does them better and faster than I ever did or could – such as invoicing, scheduling, researching). I am pretty much a control freak – especially around communication with my clients, all of whom are successful lawyers – and she has earned my complete trust to interact with them on my behalf.
The intake process (wherein we met for several hours over several phone calls to make sure we would be a good match) was extremely thorough and amazingly well thought out. I count my lucky stars she accepted me as a client. Truly.Bill Jawitz
My VA is a dream come true!. She is impeccable, flexible, clearheaded, and gracious.
We’ve worked together since 2009, and she handles a myriad of details for me including registering and managing about one hundred students, keeping track of all the finances for those students, and interacting with people all over the world. She is the buffer between my students and me, responding to a wide range of questions and needs with patience and grace.
From my perspective, her most outstanding quality is her calm steady presence no matter how many things she is juggling. She has a rare balance of high-quality attention to detail partnered with warm and genuine people skills.
I could not be happier with her work. I give her the highest possible recommendation as a virtual assistant.Gail Straub
Imagine if you could simply stop worrying about all those things that are constantly falling between the cracks in your business life. Imagine if you could completely trust that things would be handled systematically, professionally and with warmth and discretion. Imagine if processes were put in place in your life so that things just happen without you having to make them happen. Well, you’ve just imagined working with my AssistU VA. I simply don’t know how I would function without her.
My VA is a fantastic asset to our team. My very global clients love working with her, and she must have the world’s most soothing voice. I’ve not seen her flustered yet, and that is saying something. I could not recommend her more highly.Rita Gunther McGrath
I was excited by the idea of Virtual Assistance, but I’ve found it to be remarkably even more than I’d imagined. I don’t really know how this works (I feel astounded that it does, but it does!).
All of the info that comes to me from my VA makes my personal and professional life so much easier.
Previously, working with assistants had required so much management on my part that it felt like another job. Working with heris nearly effortless.
I’ve gotten progress reports from her that have made me cry with their total attention to detail, and the care that she’s taken, and the actual progress that’s been made.
Initially, I felt some trepidation about the hourly rate — what was I thinking?!? It really is a profound example of scarcity thinking at it’s best. The system of billing is elegant, and very fair. Twice the amount of work is getting done in half the time! (AssistU said this would happen, but i didn’t really believe it!)
She’s made my life easier and better, and she’s *saved* me so much money. From the phone plan, to the cell-phone plan, to the advice on software, recommendations about cost effectiveness, and finding and using less expensive resources — let me just say that I was thrilled to write the check paying Anne at the end of the month!
I have to be a little bit careful about bragging about my VA — it’s making my friends jealous!!
If you’re looking for a well-trained and truly gifted Virtual Assistant, be sure to get a referral from AssistU! I’m deeply impressed with the level of training, professionalism and experience.
In a conversation I had with Anastacia Brice, President of AssistU, she told me, “It’s not about what your VA can do, but it’s about what she can get done!” What’s getting done for me and my company is truly impressive!Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy (SARK)
I heard about AssistU from the successful women entrepreneurs I study with, including Ali Brown and Fabienne Fredrickson, and felt with their strong endorsement and double thumbs up, that when I was ready to hire my first VA, this was the route I would go.
I am so deeply grateful that I went with my intuition and did the Registry Gold Program, instead of winging it by myself. Launching a business the ‘right way’ can already be overwhelming and stressful at times, and with Anastacia guiding me through the process, there was ease and excitement during a time that could have added to this intense time. Without hesitation, I would recommend AssistU, the Registry Gold Program, and Anastacia for the entrepreneur who is serious about building the business of their dreams, with the help of a virtual assistant!Bethanne Wanamaker
Through AssistU, I found my virtual assistant immediately, and we’ve been working together for six years now. I’m so happy with the relationship that I’ve never had to come back. But if I did, I know where I’d come look.
Living in Australia, I was hesitant about using a VA from a different country. I wasn’t sure how it would work or if it was safe.
I decided to go with AssistU because they had a strong work ethic and strict guidelines for their VA’s.
Anastacia took care of the whole process for me and I immediately felt secure and confident with the whole process. Her professional approach and reassuring manner helped me to relax instantly. I was blown away by the quality and expertise of the applicants and with Anastasia’s guidance and advice
I found a terrific VA. Working with her is a Godsend and I am so grateful to have a partner in my business that wants me to succeed as much as I do. Skype is so easy and communication is not even an issue. She works while I sleep and when I get up everything is completed, it’s brilliant.
I cannot recommend AssistU and Anastacia’s Registry Gold process enough!
