Who is Sheryl?

“Working nine to five, what a way to make a living…” – Dolly Parton

Sheryl M. Snitkin, Virtual Assistant

Sheryl Snitkin There’s a lot I can manage for you.  I kick butt at what I do.  But there are a lot of Virtual Assistants out there who also kick butt.  Why should you work with me?  Truthfully, I don’t know yet.  We won’t know until we have a phone call.  A lot of it is chemistry.  Kind of like dating; either you click or you don’t.

The professional stuff; the short story to a long resume:  I spent 25+ years in the corporate world, many of them working as an Executive Assistant to C-level executives in Fortune 500 companies.  I enjoyed it, but I wanted more.  In 2008, I started to go for more.  I wanted to play big.  And I’ve been doing it ever since.  Together, we can definitely play big and grow your business.

When we talk, you’ll notice I have a Bronx accent.  Yeah.  I do.  I’m proud to have been born and raised in the Bronx, and I consider NYC my true home.  Like the stereotypical New Yorker, I’m a straight-shooter, no-BS type of person.  I mean what I say, and say what I mean.  No ambiguity here.  That’s a benefit to you – no half-truths, no beating around the bush.  You get 100% honesty at all times.

In 1987, I made the radical decision to move to Minneapolis, and that’s where I am today.  And yes, I can turn the world on with my smile.  I can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile.  But I’m actually Rhoda.  Nice Jewish girl from the Bronx who moved to Minneapolis.  (I always loved her scarves.)

I love to laugh, and hopefully you do as well.  I enjoy road trips, chocolate (milk only – no dark for me!), and collecting stegosauruses.  And music.  After too many years of neglect, I’m re-learning to play the alto saxophone.  I love music.  I especially love classic rock and blues.  Did you check out the music quotes at the top of each page?  My love of classic rock includes Led Zeppelin, Elton John and many more. Music is a big part of my life.

There are two Vice Presidents in my business.  Oddly, as the business owner, I report to them.  They hold meetings without me, ignore my requests for assistance, and often jump on me.  Their names are Pooh (on the left) and Janis (on the right), and here they are in one of their meetings.

That’s about it.  I will work my butt off for you – and produce great results – because you deserve it.  You don’t have time to handle the minutiae in your business.  You’re great at what you do, but you never bargained for all this mishegoss.

My clients are the foundation of my mission statement.  Serving my clients is not a mechanical act but one that provides an opportunity for fulfillment and meaning.  I would be honored to provide you an opportunity to experience my business philosophy.  Here I am, ready for you.  Let’s kick things into high gear.
