I'm Sharon Nissen,

virtual assistant coach and the host of The Support Squad Podcast.

Back in 2016, I was a bored and broke stay-at-home mom with a desire for so much more. 

No college degree + spotty resume = VERY limited options for work. But the idea of slaving at a 9-5 and earning barely enough to cover childcare KILLED MY SOUL! 

Then came the turning point: A friend told me about virtual assisting and I knew it was exactly what I was looking for.

See - I’ve ALWAYS been a smart, creative, and driven person, but the typical college path and 9-5 corporate job just never appealed to me. (Sound familiar?)

As I learned more about virtual assisting, I was SO excited to find I could do creative work that I loved - on my own terms.

Over the last few years, I've taken my VA business to places I never even dreamed and have now made it my mission to mentor new virtual assistants so that they can create businesses that bring them long-term fulfillment.
