In this episode of the Agency Spark Podcast, Sara interviews Amy Foley. Amy started her entrepreneurial journey in 2011 when she left her corporate job to have more flexibility and time with her family and started a small Virtual Assistant business. The business evolved (with the help of her co-founder, Michael Reynolds) into what is now known as Inbound Back Office, which provides back-office support to marketing agencies. Amy has over 20 years of administrative experience in various industries, including manufacturing, real estate, accounting, marketing, SaaS, and more. She has a BA in Business Administration and a Masters in Information Systems. When she’s not running her business, she enjoys spending time with her family, running, traveling, speaking/coaching/writing about productivity, and optimizing her health.
Questions Sara asks Amy Foley:
- Tell me a little about your story before launching your virtual assistant business back in 2011?
