We had the good fortune of connecting with Andrea Elibero and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Andrea, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I was sitting at my desk at my 9-5 one day thinking, “Is this it?”. I worked REALLY hard to get here and now I will just sit in this same cubicle for the next who-knows-how-many years with just a few weeks of vacation/year doing work that I now realize isn’t as rewarding as I once thought it was.

I realized that my primary value is FREEDOM. It was then that I searched the entire internet to find something that I can do from my laptop that would both be beneficial to the world and allow me to work when and how I wanted from my laptop. This led me to become a virtual assistant for health and wellness entrepreneurs, which quickly evolved into my becoming a certified online business manager for soulpreneurs and a high vibe virtual assistant coach.

Now I get to do work I love, empowering clients who are doing amazing things in the world, all from my laptop!

What should our readers know about your business?
I am a Virtual Assistant Coach for High Vibe Virtual Assistants. I help virtual assistants live an aligned laptop lifestyle by helping them get booked out with aligned clients doing the work they love through clarity, attraction and visibility, supporting skills, and scaling and automation.

Additionally, I am a certified online business manager for soulpreneurs. I help my clients by marrying strategy and implementation to manage their online businesses. I build and direct their teams, systematize the businesses’ backends, oversee their launches, and take care of the day-to-day operations so they have a flourishing online business without the overwhelm.

Along my business journey, I have learned that as long as my “why” is bigger than my “why not” and my business is aligned with my values, I will always succeed (that, and to get comfortable being uncomfortable as owning a business is working through being uncomfortable over and over again)!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If someone was visiting Miami, I would take them to my favorite plant-based restaurants (Planta Queen, Thatch), to the beach (of course!), to stroll in Upper Buena Vista, and to my favorite yoga classes!
