Camryn Pickworth is the founder of The First Pick VA Group, a successful virtual assistant business.
In this episode, Camryn shares her story of launching her virtual assistant business in the middle of a pandemic – and at the age of 21. She also talks about setting boundaries, ethical “freelanceship,” team building, and overcoming childhood trauma and shaping it into a successful future.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
CONNECT WITH CAMRYN
At 21 years old (in the height of the covid pandemic) Camryn founded her company, The First Pick VA Group, that within two years has expanded into a six-figure business, signed over 50 clients nationwide, and is ranked among the top 1% of virtual assistants in the country. Camryn created an updated freelancing experience for her clients by granting them access to virtual assistants who receive continual training and mentorship.
