I am privileged to have been coached by and now am working with Melissa St. Clair, Queen Bee at Paper Chaser Biz, LLC. As my business coach, Melissa encouraged and supported me through the steps of creating my own virtual business. Melissa always met me with a positive attitude, listened with compassion, and cheered for me in my successes. Now, we work together, and I appreciate her willingness to invest in my success by holding me accountable, challenging to strive for excellence, sharing her experience and knowledge, and modeling best practices. Melissa is the definition of professional.

“Before meeting with Melissa St. Clair at Paper Chaser Biz LLC to develop formal SOPs, all process lived in my mind. As my team grew, I was becoming the bottleneck for decisions and knew it was time for proper process and documentation. Leading a busy PR agency and scaling the team and business meant an increasing need for formalized standard operating procedures. Efficient and effective. My team and I were able to talk through our procedures with Melissa and together we produced official documentation in only two work sessions. Beyond the work, Melissa’s structure made the process simple and truly enjoyable!”

“After multiple one-on-one collaborative brainstorming sessions with Melissa St. Clair, Paper Chaser Biz LLC, I was able to clean out my business-focused physical and virtual checklists, streamline tasks, and support her as she developed over a dozen Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) formalizing my business plans and documentation. Hiring Melissa enabled me to respond to grow my business, create clarity with internal business operations, and support the hiring of our military spouse connected community.”

“I don’t know where my business would be without Melissa!! For the past several years, she has created newsletters, conducted research, tracked blog posts, and taken care of numerous other special projects along the way. She is incredibly organized and is always two steps ahead of me to make sure my projects are completed on time and with 100% accuracy! She is the epitome of a true professional.”

“I am a Board Certified Health Coach so my knowledge rests in health, wellness and coaching others.  I struggle when it comes to the business side of my business – mainly self-promotion and technology. Originally, I came to Melissa about a year ago to get help with my monthly newsletter.  I love working with her because of her knowledge but also because she has a way of nudging me out of my comfort zone in a kind, supportive way.  

When I received my passing grade for my boards in April, again Melissa nudged me to send out a press release which led to being interviewed by our local news station. Melissa was extremely helpful and supportive. She contacted the person to have it set up and got the communication between the station and myself going. 

Melissa loves what she does and this is obvious when you work with her. She is passionate about helping others succeed. I know I will work with her many more times in the future and I highly recommend her!!”

“Well-versed and consistent. Melissa St. Clair of Paper Chaser Biz LLC produced daily social media for Cape Carteret Aquatic & Wellness Center (CCAW) business Facebook and Twitter pages for over seven years. Quality educational and branded posts led to increased engagement and interaction on both platforms steadily over the years. Highly recommend this professional and personable virtual assistant service.”

“Melissa is a wonderful team member – not only does she pull together our monthly newsletter by juggling our editorial calendar and working with our content providers, but she also works with our webmaster on updates to the website. Remarkable when you consider that they’re both located in different states and yet, we’ve managed to establish a seamless and cost-effective process. She also handles client communications for us and acts as the first line of defense for questions and inquiries. I would highly recommend her services to small business owners looking to free up some time and work more efficiently.

“Melissa St Clair is a brilliant virtual assistant. She has taken my disorganized business and turned it into a well-oiled machine. She created systems and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) so that my business runs smoothly even when I’m on vacation. I had no idea how to create systems and SOPs, so I turned everything over to Melissa, and with zero instruction, she made it all work like a dream. She also works as project manager helping me and my team increase our productivity. Thank you, Melissa, for all you do to turn my business into a profit-producing machine!

“Efficient, organized and always a step-ahead, Melissa is more than a virtual assistant–she’s a partner in making my small business grow. She keeps my business running on both sides of the Atlantic and can handle whatever I ask of her. Melissa helps manage my social media posts, marketing, and writes my press releases. She understands the challenges of running a solely owned and operated business–especially in its early years. I highly recommend Melissa to any small business owner who wants to succeed and needs a team member to make that happen.”

I have had the privilege of working with her on numerous occasions in community functions and had the opportunity to see her work in business organizations as well. I am completely impressed by her commitment to community, her leadership, her caring personality, and her amazing acumen in business functions and support. Any client of hers is lucky to be in her hands!
