  • 734:Melissa Smith owns a virtual assistant staffing company and has written a bestseller

Melissa Smith-

Melissa Smith : Four years ago my husband committed suicide and the last three years have been all about rebuilding.
First, I decided I needed to get back to me so I moved back home from Georgia to California and spent a year blogging through a book. It was fantastic. During this time I overcame anxiety attacks that plagued me for over 15 years.
Then I needed to move back to Georgia after only a year. It was then that I started my own business. It’s two years old now and I’m excited to say that my virtual assistant staffing company is doing well and I wrote a bestseller! Also, during this time I overcame an almost life-long fear of flying. I got my passport and have now been to London and France. (The France trip was a trip of a lifetime and took me a year to plan).
During this time I took up Tough Mudders (obstacle course races) and running. I’ve competed in several TM’s including a double mudder (two laps) and four half marathons.
Last month I turned 40. In 2017, I’ll be working and living abroad with 40 other entrepreneurs, remote workers, freelancers and digital nomads. We’ll be in 12 countries in 12 months.
