She thinks and acts fast, she if full of energy, very self-driven, and always tries to do her best given any circumstances.”

“A Virtual Success is a valuable asset to Friends of the Homeless. As a small nonprofit we are not able to afford media development staff.

continued...


For several years we have wanted to update our media presence, create a Website, and implement;a better online presence. We just haven’t had the time or the expertise. Bernadette and A Virtual Success have come along side us as “enriched consultants”. They not only provided the information we needed to establish a well-rounded and effective media presence, they also helped us develop our website, Facebook page, Twitter, establish ;a giving portal, and a whole lot more. Our website is evolving, and we look forward to implement a more effective e-mail campaign, print media, we’re not there yet. However, because of Bernadette we’re light years ahead in just 6 months.

I have the highest regard for Bernadette’s expertise in business administration, print, web and social media. We have great expectations and hope to work with A Virtual Success for many years.”

“Bernadette Raftery worked closely with me as an executive assistant and consistently provided results which exceeded my expectations. She was very skilled in organizing, facilitating, and completing assignments.

continued...


Bernadette had a particular flair for quickly tracking down answers and resources on issues which others found daunting or which others might say, “It can’t be done.”

Ms. Raftery was extremely skilled in the use of many different computer software packages. She assisted me greatly in the preparation of multi-media presentations from drafting through facilitation of the actual presentation. She regularly provided me with logical spreadsheet and word documents, and I was able to rely on the accuracy of those documents. She was particularly skilled in the creation and organization of project plan documents. This skill I found most helpful as our business was one of many separate and unique projects which needed to be overlaid for maximal use of resources and maximum realization of results in the shortest possible time.

I found Bernadette to be very reliable, resourceful, persistent, and able to be relied upon to keep a confidence.”

*In my personal capacity


MedFit & Wellness Partners is a start-up company. Since our services and operating procedures are continually evolving and changing, we needed a flexible professional assistant. Bernadette has always provided excellent customer service. She understands our requirements and is responsive to our questions and concerns.

We originally started our working relationship with A Virtual Success when we needed our website redesigned. AVS was completely involved with everything from the content to the graphics and design to the SEO.

Our latest project was developing a complex data capture and work flow system. A Virtual Success took the project on as Medfit’s liaison. I appreciated the attention to detail the team put into entering the data, and testing the results. AVS found things, our group didn’t even notice.

I can say that we are confident of the dependability and quality of the professional services from A Virtual Success (AVSoffice.com). In addition, her team has proven their expertise in organization, communication, and business support skills.

It seems there is always something the staff can assist us with. I am totally pleased with the services A Virtual Success, and would recommend them to any small business.”testimonials
