When you ask Laci An McLean how she has powered through not having all the tools to becoming a leader in the virtual assistance industry, she'll say these three words: It starts within. Everything starts within. Jamaican born, Laci credits her work ethic and can-do attitude to her father who modeled for her the values of business, something she is just as passionate about imparting to her children.
With over 2000 courses created, she is clear about her intention and her purpose. She shares:
- how she has methodically and intentionally worked towards her goals and enlisted her children in the journey
- how she is equipping her children with transferable skills, values and ethics
- the research was a gamechanger and how it has taught her things that academia didn't
- what makes her virtual assistance business relevant to this day and age
- how she leads and inspires her team with her "lead from within" philosophy
- creative ways she and her business are giving back in her community and teaching others the mindset and tools to navigate the online world
...and much more

Things that made me go hmmm
From Laci An:
"I can't do it, but I can learn."
"Don't compare your Day 1 to someone else's Day 1053!"
"[She and her children] We get to bond and we get to make money at the same time."
"Knowledge can help you respond a lot quicker."
"If you don't teach your children to do what you did to have that lifestyle, you're setting them up with a hunger for something without the knowledge of how to feed themselves."
"There is so much information out there that you really can train yourself to have what it is you want for yourself. You don't have to wait on somebody else. You can go get it. It's right out there!"
"And that's the hero's journey finding out that what you've been looking for you already are."

Says Laci An, "If you get into those ruts where you feel like you have The Imposter Syndrome or you aren't quite cutting it in the areas you wish you were, just remember, keep working on yourself, working on your confidence, working on your issues that you think you have, the important bits. You can work to that point where you can start to feel like you're enough."
