Now, you're super happy you found ErikaFriday.com because it's all these things and you can't wait to be a part of it!
Hiya, I'm Erika Friday! I've been a successful virtual assistant and consultant to creative entrepreneurs since 2006. Before becoming a VA, I worked in Cubicle World (you too?) in various admin capacities for over 20 years. (The whole saga is here). I have a Bachelor of Arts in English/Creative Writing. I'd 💗 to be your trusted friend in this crazy online world and provide all the resources you need. Reach out with questions please! [email protected]
Here are some amazing female entrepreneurs who'll verify my street cred
Before meeting Erika, I was overwhelmed with all of the options for learning about digital marketing and being heard in a crowded online space. She made it easy to understand and tons of fun. Her friendly and open demeanor always made me feel safe to ask questions. If you are ready to take your business up a level, you have found your person!
What I love most about Erika is her personability and dedication to her work. She is creative and helpful. Having worked with other VA's I was trepidatious to sign up again for another, but Erika quickly showed me her ability to communicate and work at my level. I am beyond grateful for her time and help that she has offered on the scene and off. willowbradner.com
Erika is a passionate entrepreneur and you can tell by everything she does! She is a woman of many talents and is knowledgeable in a lot of programs, including all-in-one systems like New Kajabi and Simplero. If she doesn't know the answer, she'll use her vast resources to find it and share with her people. I recommend her to others without hesitation.
I love the number 8. I'm warning you; you'll be seeing a lot of it around here.
I'm a shy, private, introvert in real life. I don't do talking-head videos or selfies. My mediums are the written word and screenshare videos :D If that doesn't work for you, I understand, no hard feelings.
Favorite TV shows: Grey's Anatomy, Gilmore Girls, Friday Night Lights, and all the Real Housewives shows.
I've lived in California my whole life and the beach is my happy place. The best work days are when I grab a latte', take my laptop, and work near the waves.
Things I love: Starbucks, 80s modern rock, reading my Kindle (novels, chick lit & entrepreneurial books), Prosecco, Ed Sheeran, kindness and gratitude, the word "faith", and my family most of all.
I haven't eaten red meat for 20+ years. I haven't had soda or any sweets (not even waffles or muffins) for over 10 years.
I can be cynical and sarcastic - which I know doesn't translate well online sometimes so I try to be careful. If I ever say anything that offends, I can guarantee it was not meant that way (because I'm nice to a fault!).
I'm an Italophile though I've only had one trip there and been to 3 cities. My comfort movie is Roman Holiday and my dream is live out Under the Tuscan Sun when we retire (however, we're going to RV around the USA instead).
