International Virtual Assistants Association Summit - Las Vegas, Nevada 2013
Dessire Izaguirre, Owner
I'm an entrepreneur at heart lucky enough to own my dream business!
I enjoy helping my clients attract leads, convert them, close sales and delight their existing customers using their Website, Social Media & Email Marketing.
I am the sole proprietor of Top Global Virtual Assistant Corp registered in the State of Florida, USA and operated remotely from my home office located in Venezuela. Serving clients located all over the world since 2012.
With a background of over 10 years of Corporate Experience as a Bilingual Executive Assistant for International Corporations such as: EDS, Scotiabank & Kimberly Clark as well as a Technical Business Administration Degree, I had the strong desire to become a Business Owner...
One day I came across the term "Virtual Assistant" through a Google search. Learning about the Virtual Assistant Industry opened a whole new world of opportunities to me and made me realize I could work virtually from home! I decided I would become a Virtual Assistant and that became my ticket out of the Corporate World. My journey to the Digital World began short after and throughout that journey I developed a passion for Online Marketing, leading me to uncountable trainings and certifications in Social Media Marketing, WordPress Website Design and Email Marketing Platforms. I have overcome obstacles, made mistakes, learned from them, reinvented myself, broken my own paradigms... and continue to learn new things each and every day while I remain committed to my business and my clients. I now run a successful business which continues to grow every day.
However, I couldn't have done it without my VA Colleagues at The International Virtual Assistants Association -IVAA- where I have found mentors, supporters and friends that continue to make my journey easier. I am a member and former Director of Research, Development & Education at IVAA and because I want others to have the opportunity I did, I've developed a program in Spanish to teach others in Latin America how to become a Virtual Assistant.
A little more about me:
On the personal side, I am also a mother of a little girl and a teen boy as well as a wife! I'm a huge CSI TV Series fan and love: the beach, to travel and to watch a good movie! My VA Colleagues describe me as: Decisive, Friendly, Warm, Motivated, Smart Gal!, Overcoming, Beautiful, Resourceful & Outgoing.
