Who are we
In 2001 Valerie moved to Mexico with her husband and family. Soon after she started Computers101 which started by offering in home computer repair services. A few months later, Joel and Johnna left Texas to move to Mexico and soon met and joined Valerie. With the addition of Joel, Johnna’s husband, Computers 101 was also able to add web design and computer teaching services. After growing the company to over 2000 clients, it was closed in 2009 so that they could tend to a dying family member.
After the passing of Valerie’s mom, Johnna and Valerie then founded Your Virtual Assistants in 2010. Your Virtual Assistants provided virtual services, Online Business Management Social Media and Internet Marketing Services to women Coaches and Speakers.
Although we loved working with the coaching industry our passion was with the entrepreneurs and solopreneurs. We decided in 2017 to close Your Virtual Assistants and to begin following our passion in helping our truly aligned audience.
In 2018, they founded The Online Business Gurus. The OBGs mission is to show startup businesses who want an online presence or well established businesses that want to expand their online sales, the foundational steps they need in the online world. The OBGs teach how build and/or manage their teams, install systems in their business and market their products and services business owners can create the strong foundation they need to build their success.
What do we do
With our certifications and expertise, we specialize in Sales Funnels and Social Media Marketing. We know that with these 2 building blocks are the base of an online business owner’s foundation, they can sustain their business and truly make money in the online world.
We recently just helped a client to rank number 9 in Twitter’s Global Gurus Brand Top 30. Last year she was 15!!
We want to show the business owner a way to make money smarter without the chaos. Let’s face it, you want more to live other than working 20 hours a day. Hell, isn’t that WHY you left your nine to five.
