Members Matter! Meet Janet Barclay
Janet Barclay, a former career professional and virtual assistant, is now a website caregiver to a variety of clients throughout North America. One of her clients is Career Professionals of Canada, where she serves as Technology Manager. She is also the founder and director of the Golden Horseshoe Virtual Assistants Group.
In the early days of her virtual assistant business, Janet chose career practitioners as one of her target markets due to her background in that industry. She learned that CPC was holding a conference in the Greater Toronto Area and offered a door prize of a gift certificate for her services. A few months later, Sharon Graham reached out to Janet when she needed a virtual assistant. Janet remembers this as a major turning point for her and remains grateful, not just for the business, but for everything she’s learned and the many interesting people she’s come to know through her involvement with CPC.
Fun fact: Janet has a tattoo of a forget-me-not on her back.
