Nikki Thompson, Island VA
Hi! I‘m Nikki Thompson, originally from the UK and now living on a tropical island in Thailand. In 2010, after working as an admin assistant and PA in London for over 15 years, I left behind my city life and moved to an idyllic Thai island.
During my first two years living on Koh Lanta, I built and managed a small backpacker hostel and also became a mother to my beautiful daughter.
I then set up my Virtual Assistant business helping small businesses owners all over the world grow their businesses with social media and online marketing.
I love my job, especially the variety of clients I work with, all needing different support. I really enjoy learning new skills and software and being resourceful. And I especially love the freedom my job gives me to live anywhere in the world.
Finding the right support is crucial to help your business grow.
I love being a Virtual Assistant.
I've always enjoyed working in a supporting role and helping people. Being a VA has taught me to be resourceful and work things out on my own. Each new client works in a different way and has a different set of tasks they need help with, so things never get dull.
I'm always learning new skills and discovering different apps and software and I love it!
