  • Misconceptions about business systems
  • Three key money-making systems to have in place
  • Customizing what you need

“If you want to raise your prices, you have to raise your systems to match the experience you want to give.”

Sam Whisnant

Sam Whisnant skipped the corporate world and started her virtual-assistant business armed with a biochemistry degree, a total of zip-zilch-zero experience in digital marketing, and living halfway around the world. But after working with 45+ clients, tackling everything from copywriting to managing and coaching 20+ member masterminds, she realized you don’t need an MBA, a full-time team, or the most expensive tools on the market to build a thriving six-figure business.

All you really need are the right systems in place that support your growth so you can spend the majority of your time in your zone of genius.
Now, Sam thrives in helping growing entrepreneurs set up systems so they can organize and automate their businesses, hire and onboard their first team member with ease, and stay focused in their zone of genius as much as possible.
