Successful local business woman Karen Vivarelli is coaching others on how to thrive working for yourself at home, and has been named a finalist for the 2021 AusMumpreneur Awards. The AusMumpreneur Awards recognise Australian Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation.

From virtual assistant to successful online business coach, Karen is no stranger to working from home. In just a couple of years, she has established herself as the go-to expert and coach for other mumpreneurs all over the world interested in learning how to start, grow and scale their own online business. And it doesn’t come at a better time. With the pandemic forcing many to reassess how and where they work, Karen is guiding others on how they can successfully be their own boss at home.

Her signature online courses are the VA Kickstarter Course to help women start their virtual assistant business from scratch, and the Essential Online Tech Tools Course to help people go from tech stressed to tech savvy. She initially found out about Virtual Assistants (VAs) from a friend and was intrigued about how this could be the flexibility she craved and needed, while raising her young family. After researching virtual assistants, it was enough to spark her interest and led her to set up her own virtual assistant business.

“You can have the flexibility to work from home whenever it suits you and your family. This is now the reality of so many women in business who are juggling family and work. You just have to take that first step in the right direction and find the right coach and community to support you on your journey. And this is exactly what I help women do”.
