Sharon Marshall | Entrepreneur, Systems Specialist, Founder of Virtual eAdmin & Cree8iv Collaboration Inc.
I am a Metis-Cree online business manager and administrative professional with 30+ years’ experience and a recent Associate Certificate in Training and Facilitation from the Justice Institute of British Columbia. I am the founder of Virtual eAdmin and the founder and president of new Cree8iv Collaboration Inc. I provide remote administrative, creative and technical support to entrepreneurs and executives.
Through Cree8iv, I work with individuals and organizations to provide infrastructure to remote communities. Virtual eAdmin functions much like a temp agency for the Indigenous VAs I train and hire out. I am also currently working to create an Indigenous Virtual eAcademy to help Indigenous organizations close the gaps of unemployment and lack of capacity. Both Virtual eAdmin and the eAcademy will work under the Cree8iv umbrella.
I express myself passionately via graphic design, social media, workshop facilitation and writing.
- Experienced: We learn by doing. I've been working online since the early days and with 30+ years of experience in a variety of roles, I know first-hand that Indigenous organizations and communities struggle with a lack of capacity and I know what skills and competencies are required to be a successful Indigenous Digital Executive Assistant.
- Natural leader: I am a natural leader who leads by example. I am mentoring and/or training someone wherever I work. I have learned to speak and lead from the heart. I work with the highest integrity and I strive for excellence in all that I do.
- Meaningful difference: I want to make a meaningful difference. I have great skills and I want to use these skills to help others develop their skillset and become successful working for themselves and helping their communities. I am most passionate about helping Indigenous women find their voice.
Does your organization lack capacity? Do you struggle to keep up with your workload? Do you see some tasks slipping through the cracks? Are you or any of your team performing tasks outside your ‘zone of genius’?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re not alone. Many entrepreneurs and executives operate under the old adage, “If you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself”, which makes you the biggest bottleneck of your organization. You are metaphorically rowing upstream without a paddle.
Having knowledge is power, however, the real power lies in execution. “If you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right!” I excel at streamlining clients’ processes and helping others become more efficient.
Virtual eAdmin and our team of Indigenous Digital Executive Assistants can help fill your administrative gaps, train your staff and remove the bottleneck from your organization. If you would like to close the gaps and build capacity in your organization and community, give us a call today.
