Are you Ready to Grow your Sustainable Business?

Running an small or medium sized business is hard.

It can feel like you are frantically trying to keep all of the plates spinning.

Being a business with sustainability or ethics at your core can add yet another plate into the mix.

Not only are you trying to grow a profitable business, but you are also trying to have a positive impact on the world.

Having previously founded a sustainable gifting business, I get it.

As your ethical Virtual Assistant, Planner Bee VA Services can help you to keep the plates spinning. We can support you as you grow both your business AND the positive impact you have on the world.

In many cases they have thought so proactively, always thinking ahead. They're absolutely amazing, and I’m so so happy to be working with them. THANK YOU!

Do I need an ethical Virtual Assistant?

If you are wondering if now is the time to work with an ethical VA, ask yourself…

Are you having to turn down clients and potential business (or are you growing a long waiting list) due to lack of time?

Do you need marketing support, but don’t want to take on a full-time employee?

Are you spending lots of time on tasks you don’t enjoy and aren’t within your zone of genius?

Do you feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done?

Are you too busy working IN your business to have time to work ON your business?
