Richard Evans

Founder and Owner | Va Va Voom

On leaving my corporate career in May 2017, I knew if I was going to function at investor level rather than being a landlord, I needed to have others in my business dealing with the day to day operational tasks.

I systemised my business and took on my first Virtual Assistant working from the Philippines.

I started speaking at various networking events on how to scale up using software and taking on a Virtual Assistant. Immediately people started asking me to recruit for them their own VA and show them how to systemise….

Tonight I will show you how to free up your time and only do the tasks you either want to do or have to do yourself.

Work on your business not in it.
