10: Increase Your Productivity Through Virtual Assistants w/ Laura Rike

EP. 10Today’s Guest is Laura Rike, who is a graphic designer and virtual assistant.
“I received a degree in Advertising Graphic Design from International Academy of Design and Technology.
In addition to my design and production skills, I have been told that I can instantly inject energy and promote a no quit attitude that are assets rarely found these days. I was once told that you don’t mess with a single mother, because once they get their mind set on doing something it gets done! That pretty much sums up who I am and what I am about.
Coupled with my incredible work ethic and desire to continue to grow, I am extremely reliable and I have a knack for taking limited information from clients and creating several options to meet their needs. I strive to develop business solutions that are inviting and interesting but also mirror the client’s core values and mission whether it is for Graphic Design, Online Marketing or anything in between!”
