A Wakefield entrepreneur is celebrating 10 years in business in March 2021 and reported her best sales year ever in 2020. Michelle Poole, 56, founded her virtual agency, Virtual Hand, in 2011 to support entrepreneurs who create their own business without support with the back end and marketing roles.
Now 10 years on she is celebrating her best year ever, during the pandemic which has left many businesses having to close but also when many people have created their own business due to being made redundant or pivoted due to the drop in demand of their previous business. This has provided a whole new market of opportunity for her business.
Michelle Poole said: “I am proud that we have continued to support businesses nationwide during this difficult time, by lightening their load and allowing them to do what they love. It’s a pleasure to work with inspired individuals who are sharing their talents both online and offline.”
