Founded in 2009, Worldwide101 is a premium virtual assistant company with team members in North America and Europe. We help founders and executives move their business forward by providing highly skilled assistants they can trust to represent their business and carry out responsible tasks. We're called Worldwide101 because we make it easy for businesses to access global talent, and operate in international markets. Worldwide101 equals operating worldwide easily.We provide personalized and customized virtual assistance, getting to know your business and then recommending qualified team members to support you.
Finding reliable, trustworthy, and competent help has always been one of the foremost challenges of running a successful business or project—and it’s even more relevant when using remote resources. Worldwide101’s team of experienced, reliable, and vetted virtual assistants can provide your business with support you need.
Screening for Talent
Our premium virtual assistants are selected for their innate sense of service and care, as well as their years of corporate and professional experience. We look for people who are motivated to contribute to and partner with our clients for the long term.
Friendly and Caring
We like working with friendly and caring people and so do our clients. That's why Worldwide101 is all about providing friendly, personalized service. Look forward to working with a motivated team who cares deeply about doing a great job.
Our business model is based on the belief that long lasting partnerships must be beneficial and rewarding for everyone involved. Our clients and team both get to choose whether or not they want to work together, and our team is highly invested in helping our clients succeed. This isn't about the paycheck, it's about the partnership.
Paying Attention To Detail
Don't think that because we're friendly we don't mean business! We believe that solid execution comes from sweating the details, and one of our key team requirements is to care for all the little things that translate into extraordinary results.
The buck stops with us—no matter what the situation. Our team takes responsibility for their actions and for speaking up when something isn't working, so that it can be improved. We back that up with our 100% lifetime satisfaction guarantee.
A Positive Outlook
We believe in the power of positivity grounded in reality—that is, looking at each situation as an opportunity to learn, thrive or improve. We want to have a positive impact with our work and in all of our interactions and collaborations.
Worldwide101 was founded in late 2009, when Sandra Lewis and a group of experienced freelancers began collaborating to offer business clients a well-rounded range of services. With our commitment to quality and reliability, we quickly found our client pool beginning to grow beyond the scope of what we could individually support. Worldwide101 took shape as we continued to add more and more professionals to the team who share the same values—friendly, skilled, responsible, "can do" support, grounded in quality.
As our clients were able to hand over more ongoing responsibilities and focus on the growth of their business, Worldwide101 saw a shift in demand from short-term projects to long-term, ongoing monthly tasks, with team members working as an integral part of our clients’ businesses.
What became apparent in working closely with our first clients was that, while most tasks fell under “general admin support,” each business was unique, with very particular needs. To successfully provide our clients with the best solution, we needed to understand their business and provide a tailored approach to their specific requirements.
In listening to our clients’ pain points and concerns, we also noted that assigning a team member who would get the job done was very often only 40% of what mattered to them. The remaining 60% was in HOW the tasks would get done, and BY WHOM.We all have our preferences in work style and the type of person we like to work with, and these preferences matter A LOT in building trust, and a long-term partnership.
In our first year of business, it also became apparent that small business owners very often need more than just admin support—that they often don’t have time to find someone to do their social media, create an email marketing campaign, or project manage the launch of their books.
Clients started asking us for more help, and we began to assemble an array of team members with the versatility required to support business owners with more complex and specialized skills. Why should a client struggle to find a designer for a new brochure or a Web developer to create a new sales page? With a diverse skillset and constantly growing team, we’ve been able to assign team members for ongoing tasks as well as to support clients on an ad hoc basis when they have a particular need, or in cases where they suddenly need to scale up to respond to demand.
Worldwide101’s ability to provide highly personalized and tailored solutions and to match our clients with virtual assistants who have the skills, interest, and personality to support their business for the long term has been our greatest accomplishment. It has contributed to our rapid growth and our astonishingly high client and team retention rates.
Our vision hasn’t changed since day one; our unequivocal passion for excellence, quality, and care still drives our decision-making and is the foundation for how we’ve structured our business. If you share our values and need help, then we would love for you to experience what we are all about!
