We've Been 100% Virtual For Years
As a road warrior consultant, our founder Diane Moura spent decades learning to work effectively out of a suitcase from airports, hotels and client sites. Living through multiple semi-virtual models from office hoteling to full work-from-home settings in the corporate world, when she launched ZenChange Marketing, after a couple of years of paying for an office no one wanted to work out of, she decided to take the company 100% virtual. Not only did this provide more flexibility for local employees, but it opened the company up to a wealth of talented team members who due to life circumstances could not commit to a 9-5 physical office setting. This talented pool of experts included parents with childcare drop-off/pick-up responsibilities, children of aging parents who needed to be driven to medical appointments, people living outside of major urban centers, or simply talented consultants with life conflicts that did not allow them to work a full 40 hour week. The result was a team of engaged experts appreciative of the flexibility a work-from-home environment provided who were willing to give 110% to make our clients happy.
We realized that we were onto something. Why couldn’t other businesses learn to adapt all or part of their models to a virtual setting, not only taking advantage of an underutilized talent pool, but creating a resilient model able to withstand local, regional and national crises. With that, Take My Business Virtual was born.
Our talented team of virtual experts is ready to share lessons and create a practical plan to take your business virtual.
