“Vanessa was instrumental in helping with the transition from stylist to salon owner. She helped me focus my energies and my ideas in order to get get the highest level of potential for myself and my business. She has an amazing talent in which she helps bring clarity and focus to your goals. She helped me figure out my niche, which in this day in age there is profitability in specialization. Vanessa genuinely cares for the people she helps, but be prepared to work hard. You have to put in just as much effort as she does. Her knowledge of the most current business market is alone reason enough to collaborate with her. ” Lesley D. Flanagan, Owner www.Salon1827.com
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be accepted into The Assistant's Hub Community. I have been a follower & subscriber for quite some time and am not only impressed by the community you built but am thankful to have them to help me navigate through my career. All your resources have been helpful along with all the new job posts. Because of you and The Assistant's Hub, I was inspired to ask for a higher comp than I would have in the past and this past March was given a new title along with the comp I wanted. Thank you and I look forward to being a part of the community!"

"The opportunity to work with Vanessa could not have come at a better time last year. During a busy business time and entering into the new year, I was swamped and so, so happy for some guidance. Through experience sharing, self exploration, and seeing things from another perspective, I was able to increase my confidence and productivity in my personal and professional settings, and ultimately meet and exceed goals on both fronts.
Vanessa's knowledge and support is invaluable to anyone looking to improve!"

"Been an admin for 16 years and I finally have a group of peers who truly get me ;) BEAs understand every admin struggle, they revel with me in each tiny triumph, and laugh at the hilarious and often insane "asks" we get on a daily basis. BEAs are kind, creative, respectful, supportive, and REAL (you can't get away with being ego centric or fake in this group)."

“I approached Boston Executive Assistants because of their fierce founder Vanessa Farino! The ethos that she has created for Executive Assistants, Administrative and Operation professionals is extraordinary. BEA helped me by better understanding the needs and wants of administrative professionals. The result was an even stronger desire to support those administrative hero’s that advocate for their companies daily. One thing I liked was their comradery. I found hosting a monthly mixer to be enlightening and rewarding. I would recommend BEA to people who need exposure or like to network with exceedingly ambitious men and women!”

"I met with Vanessa, the founder of Boston Executive Assistants, through a mutual acquaintance who is a professional in Boston work scene. From the initial interaction I had with Vanessa on the phone to the first time I met with her in person, I was very much impressed by her calm but yet very professional demeanor. It was even more impressive to see her in action, when we had the honor of hosting one of her monthly events. I could see her complete involvement while interacting with her members from BEA and how much she genuinely cared about her members. Vanessa and BEA are committed to make sure that during every meeting and every gathering, something unique and something meaningful is shared amongst members. This can be as simple as sharing each other's unique experience in a professional world or inviting a guest speaker with an entrepreneurial spirit. I see BEA as a great way to network, find solutions to problems in today's work environment and also having fun at the same time. I can't wait to partner with Vanessa for our next joint event in the near future."
