Podcast: Emily Reagan: How to Be A Unicorn Virtual Assistant
Emily Reagan is a mom of four, air force wife, Digital Marketing Consultant and founder of vacrashcourse.com
Emily’s “VA” freelance business helps creative entrepreneurs take their talents online, grow their social media presence and build their sales funnels. She set out to distinguish herself as more than “just a VA” — she is a digital media VA and consultant – someone who does the work and understands the business. She now teaches digital marketing tech skills to over-educated, underemployed stay-at-home moms, and military spouses and people looking for a second career change so they can get hired by online business owners. Her 5-week intense training program is the Digital Media VA Crash Course and opens a few times a year.
