Marketing Strategy and Business Coaching for Small Businesses

Are you ready?

Have you been dreaming about what it could be like to start your own business? Maybe you’re tired of being constantly talked over at work, not given the opportunities that you know you can handle, or maybe just tired of the long hours and weekend calls?

Does the ability to set your own schedule and have more freedom in your life totally excite you but you’re unsure of where or even how to get started?

Last year, I was in the same boat. As a marketing executive who has been in corporate for over 15 years I realized, in the midst of Covid, that I needed a change. The hours were too demanding, I needed more flexibility to take care of my mother, and I wanted to pursue my dreams of helping others and gaining more freedom in the process.

Thus, Virago Advisors was born!
