VoyageBaltimore Interview

Written by Tammy Durden

I was recently interviewed by VoyageBaltimore Magazine. It was an honor that I was happy to do. Did you know that I have a history with Baltimore and Maryland? Doing interviews can be a great way to help your online presence. Voyage Baltimore’s interview was no exception for my online presence.

Why VoyageBaltimore?

You may not know this but I spent many years in Maryland. As a youth, I lived right outside of Annapolis. Then after my husband went into ministry we served a church in Manchester, about 45 miles outside of Baltimore. My family has Baltimore roots. In fact, my father grew up right in Baltimore as a boy.

These were all reasons why I was happy to do an interview with VoyageBaltimore.

Questions Asked

There were a number of great questions asked by the magazine, VoyageBaltimore. A few of which I will add just a teaser about here.

  1. Hi Tammy, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today. It has been a journey 14 years in the making. The last thing I was thinking about was creating a business. I was, however, looking to earn a little to help with our household income. I couldn’t work outside of our home due to my disabilities from Multiple Sclerosis (& later Lupus). I tried to find work online.  I had decided that if I began to have enough work to share, I wanted to help empower other disabled professionals to work from home. Later, we also added team members who were mothers of disabled children because they needed work-from-home opportunities too. This is how our Virtual Assistant Agency was built. At the end of 2020, I exited the digital agency to fully embrace business & marketing coaching full-time (with online instruction & speaking).


2. We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road? Not at all. I always tell my clients that “business is a journey, not a sprint.” That journey can be very windy with valleys and mountain tops. I certainly had many in my business journey. There were times when a client went in a different direction and I had to find a new one to replace them. I have also had to ‘fire’ a client because he was so controlling and verbally abusive toward me. He also treated me as if I were an employee rather than another business owner who partnered with him to help his business. That was one of the most difficult lessons I learned. All business owners have difficult seasons in their businesses.  I nearly quit a few years into my business.
