Get to Know Sunny Bain!

Portrait of Sunny BainMy name is Sunny Bain; I’m the owner of Sunny’s Virtual Assistance. As a professional virtual support specialist I work from my home providing superior organizational skills, support, and administration to strengthen your business.

My objective is to enter into long-term working relationship with my clients allowing me to better understand them as a person – as well as their business. This type of relationship enables me to provide the highest quality assistance as your virtual assistant, providing a high quality alternative to in-house administrative functions. My goal is to take care of the administrative, organizational, and planning details of your business so that you have the time to focus on and grow your business.

I decided to become a professional virtual assistant after my twin boys were born. It was becoming increasingly difficult to leave them every day and drive 35 miles to work. I was successful professionally in the corporate environment and had always received rave reviews for my work. I had gained an immense amount of technical experience, skill, and knowledge in how businesses run. But it gradually became clear that (a) working for someone else wasn’t really for me and (b) I wanted to be home with my children to raise them and watch them grow up. Being able to be present for them was vitally important to me.

I found AssistU, the worlds’ premier virtual university for training professional assistants to become professional virtual assistants. I enrolled and found, unsurprisingly, that everything I’d learned and every skill I’d developed translated immediately. It was a perfect fit. I graduated and began working with my first client in October of 2000. I’ve never looked back!
