I’m Here to Help.
Admin without Borders was founded by Wendy Burger on 1 August 2011. The start up came from a win-win conversation Wendy had with her employer. The company was facing challenges with the economy downturn and no new projects coming in. After intensive research, she offered a solution of becoming a virtual assistant to her employer, and the employer becoming her first client.
Since those early days, Wendy has developed skills beyond that of being an office administrator. She has tackled this business with passion and dedication.
Admin without Borders really is a borderless business. Clients are based in the USA, and different provinces of South Africa.
The typical client of Admin without Borders is a change agent. Admin without Borders has been working with Leadership and Executive Coaches, and Consultants. These consultants serve the Corporate Environment bringing change to team dynamics and leadership skills.
Wendy Burger’s personal mission statement:
The Catalyst for change enabling her clients to embrace their authentic voice and to live their lives with purpose.
