Who doesn’t want to make better use of the limited time we have? Today’s guest, Barbara Turley, understands the needs of busy professionals these days and through her business, helps them get more out of each day without sacrificing results.

Barbara is an investor and entrepreneur, and the founder and CEO of The Virtual Hub, a business she started by accident that scaled quickly to become one of the leading companies that integrates in-house trained virtual assistants into client businesses. This strategy frees up time and energy so that businesses can focus on optimizing their operations further to achieve business growth goals. With a strong focus on customized training and ongoing career development, The Virtual Hub ensures that her team is trained in cutting edge programs that many of us are familiar with — things like HubSpot, Ontraport and the like. Familiarity with these programs allows her team to best meet their client’s unique needs in digital marketing, social media, operational support, and admin services. When she’s not working on her business, Barbara is a mom to her gorgeous kids, Ruby and Alexander, and wife to her best friend.
