Hello! I’m Jo Sparkes…

“Why did you become a VA?” is a pretty common question I’m asked. And the answer really is the lifestyle. Being virtual means I really can work from anywhere, and have the time I want at home with my family as well as running a successful business.

I’ve been Managing Director of Expedio Virtual Assistance since 2003, one of the first businesses of its kind in the UK. I wanted to work from home after my son was born, and even now he’s grown up and at university, I wouldn’t change the lifestyle I’ve got for the world!

Since I took the plunge 15 years ago, virtual assistance has become a huge industry, and I get so many emails from people wanting advice on setting up their own business. That’s why I set up VA Pro Magazine, in 2011, as a way of giving others all the skills I’d learned over years as a VA so they can reach their goals

My aim is to get you where you want to be. I’ve had wonderful and terrible clients, been a sole trader and then limited company, faced almost every possible problem and still survived to tell the tale!

I love my job, and I want you to love it too. When I was setting up, I wished I had more help available to me. That’s why I’m making sure you can have all the help you need to succeed with VA Pro, so that you too can have the lifestyle you dream of.
