Working a 9-5 job can be exhausting, unfulfilling, and at times, discouraging; however, with the right tools and motivation, that lifestyle can be a part of the past. Enter GrowthFocus, a group dedicated to creating the most authentic and visibly independent version of yourself through the medium of virtual assistance. 

GrowthFocus is an online course crafted in teaching people the benefits and methods of working for yourself as a virtual assistant. This Freedom Virtual Assistant Course was founded by Liz Illg and Danielle Demi, two women who “poured [their] knowledge of business-building and [their] love for career education into the 7-chapter e-course.” 

“At GrowthFocus, we believe that growth is a gift. We encourage our students to take risks and expect miracles to follow. Changing careers is scary. Starting a virtual business is scary. Leaving an unfulfilling 9 to 5 job to start an at-home business is scary. But in order to grow and to find out what you are capable of, you’ve gotta take that leap of faith.” - Danielle Demi

When asked what makes GrowthFocus unique compared to other knowledge building, virtual assistance programs, Danielle highlighted the experience and dedication Liz and her imbued into the brand. Their main focus was on how to deliver the best guide for dreamers and individuals who aspire to leave the unfulfilling and enter their version of satisfying. 

“Our virtual assistant e-course is unique because it takes the knowledge of two successful businesswomen, with completely different backgrounds and expertise, and it’s combined to be the perfect guide for aspiring VAs. Liz has spent years building brick-and-mortar businesses from the ground up and I’ve been in the freelance world for years. The course is the ultimate resource for emerging entrepreneurs because it contains the philosophies of two mentors.” - Danielle Demi

Of course, nothing says dedication as two entrepreneurs building a business on the foundations of dreams and aspirations. Danielle emphasized how her love for her work is not only instilled into the course but also perpetuates the motivation that people need in order to take that leap of faith into the career unknown. Her best decision was taking that leap of faith, and she has never been happier. 

“The thing I love most about what we do is that we’re able to help people transform their lives. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was leaving my 9 to 5 job and starting my virtual assistant business. When I worked on my own schedule, from my home office, I no longer had to choose between work and personal goals, or between work and family time. It was empowering to become my own boss and the fact that I’m able to help other women achieve that in their life, is truly unbeatable. Getting to teach VAs with my own mentor and business bestie, Liz, makes everything even more magical.” - Danielle Demi

“If someone needed a word of encouragement from GrowthFocus, it’d be this: if you know you’re called to do something, don’t ignore that calling. You’re capable of turning your dream life into a reality. All you have to do is take the first step. Whether it’s enrolling in our Full-Time to Freedom Virtual Assistant Course or something else you’ve been wanting to do, you hold the power of changing your life.”
