Today we are excited to feature Sadie Prestridge founder of Prestridge & Co., a virtual assistant agency, and SOWBO VIP Member!
Prestridge & Co. is a virtual assistant agency that has a growing group of dedicated, virtual assistants who believe in the power of collaboration. Sadie and her team of VAs help stressed-out, overwhelmed, online CEOs get control of their business systems and their day-to-day tasks. This enables CEOs to focus on serving their clients and growing a profitable business.
They assist with routine tasks like sending emails, onboarding clients or scheduling social media. Likewise, they help a CEOs think through complex project and keep admin organized behind the scenes. The Prestridge & Co. team cares about each client and offers them high-touch, collaborative support so they can truly stay in their zone of genius.
Let’s get to know Sadie and her work! (And, look for her free gift to you at the end of the article.)
My “why” started out as simply wanting to pay my mortgage, so I could stay home with my kids. Over the last five years, it has grown into so much more. I truly believe every single business owner deserves to be supported, valued, rooted for, and invested in. I’ve seen time and time again unhappy clients who hire VA after VA, but can’t seem to find the right fit. I’ve made it my mission to ensure CEOs have the right support for their businesses. And, I also train VAs how to really invest in each client’s business as if it were their own.
We support CEOs who are truly ready to trust and hand off the day to day of their business, so they can stay in their zone of genius and focus on doing what they do best. It’s uncomfortable stepping into CEO mode. We love partnering with our clients to show them that it isn’t just a pipe dream, and that it can be their reality with just a little trust and a few systems and an absolutely amazing, dedicated virtual assistant.
What makes us different is we start with systems before you can begin working with our VAs. One of the biggest issues when hiring a VA is the CEO has no clue what the VA should be doing and doesn’t know how to teach them (or doesn’t have the time to teach them) and the VA isn’t skilled enough to know what systems are needed in the business as a whole, so she can easily step in and take over. Using our S3 Framework, we set you up with systems that are integrated so everything works together, structure, so that you have a clear picture of what you and your VA will be doing every single day. Ultimately, you will have support from a dedicated VA who is truly excited to help you grow.
I met the love of my life on Myspace when I was just 17. When I sent him a friend request, he immediately (and very rudely) said “Who the heck are you and what do you want?” Me, being a sassy 17-year-old, told him “I thought you were cute, so I added you.” Here we are almost 14 years later with 5 very chunky cats, a 3-year-old, and another little babe on the way.
I love to get lost in a really good book with a warm cup of tea or coffee.
I want to grow my agency to the point where it’s making a million dollars a year and able to support over 15 online CEOs as well as train and hire so many more women who want to also work as virtual assistants.
I never give up. Even when it’s hard or not working or doesn’t feel aligned, I keep trying things till it works again. I look at every mistake, error, upset team member, client—whatever it is—as a way to learn and grow and get better.
Keep going. Consistency is truly the key in all things. So find your niche, become amazing at it and never give up.
I’ve only been in for a short while, but everyone already feels like a close friend that I want to get to know even better. I love the support, advice, feedback and how it truly feels like I am being welcomed in a big group hug.
