"Lisa has really helped me to keep my eye on the ball as I launched my Virtual Assistant business. She has provided wonderful feedback to any of the questions I had and always came prepared with awesome topics and resources for our coaching sessions. Because of her I truly felt that I started ahead of the curve and know where to point my business in the future. She knows this industry and was a wonderful sounding board on some ideas I had, as well as offering her own ideas on how to help me in different aspects of my business. I would have been lost without her!”

​I have Lisa McDonell to thank for having a thriving business today. After two years of floundering around trying to figure out my Virtual Assistance business, I decided I needed help and hired Lisa to be my Coach at the first of the year. At that time, I had one client. I now have eleven. Lisa helped me focus on what I wanted my business to be and what niche I should serve. I will be forever grateful and will always look to the Brainy Gal for guidance."
