We pair Executive Assistants with entrepreneurs, executives, and leadership teams.
Athena virtual assistants make it possible for our clients not only to get more done, but to be more fulfilled and satisfied with the work that they do themselves. We take off your plate, those items that are not worthy of your time, skill, purpose and prowess.
Why Hire a Virtual Executive Assistant?
Here are some benefits our clients are raving about:
They are happy that they now are spending more of their time on what they are needed for most in their company. They are wasting less time on activities someone else could do.
They are saving money by simply paying for the hours someone works instead of hiring an employee or doing it themselves.

Case Study: A client’s perspective
about our client, and best-selling Author of UnF*ck Yourself, Gary John Bishop
Preview: Gary could see the explosion about to happen in his life. Not all of us can see the overwhelm or train wreck coming, but he could. He started doing the planning and critical thinking as he looked out ahead. This was brilliant. He was committed that he would be able to have the success that was coming his way, while not sacrificing what is sacred for him – time with his family.
Turn your Current assistant into a high-performing Executive Assistant!
Athena Executive Services offers a coaching program for the Executive Assistant you already have! This program is especially beneficial for those who are new to being an Executive Assistant. You may have hired an assistant that you think has great potential, but perhaps doesn’t yet have the chops to be that elevated kind of assistant we call an Executive Assistant. Perhaps you have a great assistant whose performance you simply want to elevate. This coaching program produces high-performing Executive Assistants.
Our coaching program includes 8 hours of coaching and is done over the phone in 8 – 10 phone calls. Each coaching session covers one of our 8 Key Distinctions to being a high-performing Executive Assistant. We also have time on each coaching call dedicated to specifically what they have on their plate as an EA and where they are challenged and need coaching in specific areas of their performance. We make sure they leave each session with specific ways of being or ways of acting to practice to make them more effective or efficient in their work with you. We also elicit your input prior to the coaching series and in the middle of the series so you can provide input on where you feel they most need development.
