Just days after walking away with Best VA Speciality or Niche, Top Performing VA Agency AND The Virtual Assistant of the Year Award, Kellie Beaumont from Released sat down with us to share her journey from primary school teacher to award winning virtual assistant agency owner.

The 2021 NZ VA Awards was an online event like no other.  There was laughter, tears, banter, llamas, in-jokes galore … but most importantly it brought together and celebrated the incredible virtual assistants of New Zealand!

The night may not have been the in-person extravaganza we had originally planned, but boy-oh-boy – Plan B was pretty bloody impressive!

Watch the replay of the Awards here!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How Kellie runs her thriving VA Agency.
  • Kellie’s secrets to writing an award winning entry form.
  • Why even the most successful business women still feel unworthy at times.
  • Sam, Jo and Kellie’s Award night highlights!
