Social Media Manager

Hi, I’m Jilanne!

I love to meet goals, whether they’re business or personal goals

One of the most exciting personal goals I’ve achieved is traveling around the world. I was born and raised in New Zealand, but for the past 10 years, I’ve traveled far and wide around the globe including:

• Japan and Thailand
• London and Ireland
• France, Italy and Monaco
• United States including Florida, Georgia, and New York


South Africa Goal

Then I fell in love and moved to South Africa, my husband’s home. My goal is to see and experience all the wonders of South Africa over the next several years.

My husband is in the maritime industry and works a rotation of two months on, one month off so the last thing I wanted to do was get a job in corporate and be stuck in an office while he is on leave. We love adventures and when he is off work, we are usually found in some remote location such as Mbotyi or Coffee Bay on the Wild Coast fishing, snorkeling and eating copious amounts of fresh oysters and crayfish.


Location Independent Business Goal

While our travels are exciting, hubby does also have to work. More often than not, he works away from home so I started thinking about what I could do while he was at work, that I could continue to do while we are out exploring the country.

After some research online I discovered VAVS, an online conference run by VAs for VAs, which gave me the kick I needed to start my own “Location Independent” business. I learned a lot including how to set up a website and what tools I needed to get started. Being Location Independent is the most important factor as it allows me to travel with my husband and still be able to work wherever we are.


Social Media Goal

Social Media has always played a big part of my life, especially keeping in touch with family and friends while far from home, so it made sense to specialise in social media.

I’ve taken advanced training in social media and use it extensively to build my virtual assistant business and the businesses of my clients.

It is my mission to help you, as a female business owner, to build your online presence by helping you set up social media profiles and develop the most effective social media strategy for your business.
