After spending over 10 years in the corporate world, Karlie Young realised that she wanted so much more out of her life! From experiencing a deep lack of joy and fulfillment in her work in the corporate world, Karlie decided to take charge of her life, find her true passion, and create more freedom and enjoyment in her life.

She utilized her years of corporate experience and knowledge in supporting others to start her Virtual Assistant business at the beginning of 2020. Within just three months her business took off – Quitting her corporate job, doubling her corporate income and working with some amazing clients. Needless to say she never looked back. 

Soon after that, she transitioned into the Online Business Manager role and started a small agency to support her clients. As she continued to grow and scale her business, Karlie wanted to share her knowledge and experience in building a successful VA business, so she moved into coaching to support and empower others in building their own businesses. 

Within her coaching, Karlie not only focused on the strategy needed to build and scale a successful VA business, but she also focuses on the mindset work needed to build a business. “Mindset is such an integral part of building a successful and sustainable business. Business is 20% strategy and 80% mindset, so I make sure to cover and work through both with my clients” Karlie explains.

Karlie specializes in coaching her clients through the strategy and mindset behind creating a sustainable business, so that they can reach their goals, feel fulfilled and grow their business beyond their expectations. Karlie not only provides a proven method for creating a strong foundation for her clients to accelerate their success, but she also helps them implement ways to grow businesses that are exciting, fulfilling and profitable.
