  • Description

    My name is Victoria Rose, an Australian who backpacked solo on a mission to prove it's possible to travel and live overseas on an Aged Pension.

    In 2018/2019, this epic trek took me through Europe, Turkey and Asia Pacific for 18 months. AND ... mission accomplished :)

    I was born a traveller. Half a century ago as an 18 year old, I travelled solo to the UK for a 2-year working holiday. Even at that age, living the culture of the country was more important than mixing with overseas Australians.

    I'm now back home in Australia and it looks like new adventures in 2022/23 will all be here in Australia. Luckily, it's a big country.

    As a digital nomad specialising in building business Bots, I work with businesses to create a powerful on-line presence and to automate the boring bits that take up too much time, time that should be spent on doing what business owners love doing.

    Need help with social media? Want to upgrade your website, graphics, videos? Love to promote what you do? Can I help you with that? Not possible to confirm if my skills can support you in your goals, we need a conversation to confirm if that's possible.

    PLEASE take the time to read this full profile.
    Then you'll know whether or not I may be a good fit for your situation. You'll know whether or not we go to the next step of having a video chat to see if we are a match.

    As a best selling author (How to Make The Rest of Your Life The Best of Your Life: Tough Love For Smart Single Women Over 60) I travelled throughout Europe, Turkey and beyond as I struggled to write my second book. The struggle was real. But if you dream of writing a book then my experience may be very useful to you.

    2018/2019 Workaway gigs included teaching conversational English to 64 classes of middle school students in Italy. As a trainer (for nearly three decades) people often comment on how clearly I speak. Which translates into easy to understand.

    I spent the month of March in France working with a 58 year old French woman to launch her new business on Social Media. And that was fun.

    As a new business, we started from scratch on her branding: creating her logo, name (registered the domain name) built her Facebook business page, created videos, mapped out her marketing strategy, built her channel on YouTube, interviewed her on my weekly TV livestream show, mentored her to Go Live with her very first Livestream on Facebook and created her intro video for use on all the platforms she now owned.

    April 2019 saw me in Spain working with a chef to promote and build her cooking holidays on social media and beyond.

    Building her business included much of the assets already mentioned as well as videoing a 3-part cooking series and uploading to her platforms.

    May in Albania working with a Women's Centre supporting women and girls of domestic violence. This was achieved by growing their presence on social media, helping staff with their English language skills and helping out in their restaurant.

    July and August in York, UK working with a couple to grow their businesses using my specialist social media skills. Then September saw me in Worcestershire UK, looking after a Tibetan Terrier and supporting the owner with building her Facebook business.

    Oct/Nov in Thailand with the most amazing internet speed so I can continue to build my online business to support businesses with building their own ChatBot.

    I'm obsessed with VAbots and ChatBots and if you're in business, you should be too.
    I'd be more than happy to show you why :)

    IMPORTANT: My first Workaway experience was NOT good.

    The hosts misrepresented what their offer was. Not only was their home filthy, it was NOT an eco farm and the deplorable conditions they expected volunteers to live in (and they lived in) were not acceptable.

    BTW, I'm an ex-soldier with the Australian Army Reserves, so have lived in some bleak and isolated conditions.
    Nothing as bad as this Workaway experience.

    They told me other Workaways had turned up but left on the same day. And I could see exactly why.
    Finally, their listing was taken down by the Workaway Team.

    It is not fair to Workaways to waste their time and other Workaway opportunities by not honestly presenting the situation.

    PLEASE KNOW: I will not accept any Workaway placing if the Host has not agreed to a video chat. Sound fair?
