​Butler Business Owner Loves Wanneroo Business Association

Meet Rachel Boros, owner of SB Creations,  a Freelance Writer and Virtual Assistant living in Butler.  We've asked Rachel some questions so you can get to know her a little more!

Tell Us About You and Your Business

I’m Rachel, I am a Freelance Writer and Virtual Assistant. I focus on writing blogs, proofreading & editing as my main writing services, as well as general admin and document formatting through my VA service. I have a degree in Communications & Marketing and previously worked as a Marketing Coordinator and Personal Assistant. Add a love of the written word and a desire to read and write, and this explains the passion behind my work.

Outside of work, I’m usually found juggling two energetic children (while trying to look sophisticated on the school run) and managing positions on the committee of my local Book Club and local Playgroup. In-between all that, I enjoy hiking or running, and I freely admit to enjoying a drink of wine – red or white thanks for asking.

What do you love most about living and working in Butler?

We bought our house in 2011 and have seen so much positive growth in this area. Can you believe when we moved up here we had to get off the freeway at Burns Beach and drive a further 15 mins home?! Now you can just get off at Hester Ave and be home in less than 5 minutes. Kids today will never understand how easy they have it….. !!! I love working from home as I am only a few minutes from the beach or several beautiful parks, so I often go out for a walk when I need a break from work.

Share your thoughts on being a member of Wanneroo Business Association and how it has helped you in business

Being a WBA member has helped me personally and professionally. Having so many varied networking events to choose from, means I never get lonely or bored. Working for myself, I love to have these events in my diary to look forward to, and even when I can’t make events I love posting in the private Facebook group, and commenting on other people’s posts – it really helps build that sense of community between all the members. I’ve learned quite a bit from attending some of the workshops – and I have also perfected my ‘elevator pitch’ by attending so many events! At first glance, I come across as very confident and outgoing, but I have fears and insecurities just like most people, yet by attending events regularly, I have learned to be more confident and proud when talking about what I do for work.

Share a recent ‘big win’ for your business

Securing a really exciting blog writing client.. and also finally finding some semblance of work-life balance at last!

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself

Hmmmm.. well, I am actually only 9 years old – in Leap Years! Yes, 29th Feb baby here – next year I will be 10 😊

Where do you see yourself, and the business, in 10 years time?

I am really moving further into my writing services, and would love to be working on varied projects, earning an income for my family whilst still managing my work-life balance. I am keen to reach a level where I can be a role model for my kids, and for others out there just starting out in business. I’ve made so many mistakes along the way – hopefully one day I can help others by sharing my stories!
