  • Description

    My name is Victoria Rose, an Australian woman backpacking solo on a pension throughout Europe and Turkey for the last 14 months. I'm now in Asia Pacific and look forward to spending the next 12 months in this region.

    As a LiveStream Strategist and BotMaster, I work with businesses to create a powerful on-line presence that grows and accelerates their Global footprint to make the difference they want to make in the world.

    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'm travelling throughout Europe, Turkey and beyond as I write my second book.

    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.
    And here I am again, wanting to live the culture of the people and not be a tourist.

    PLEASE take the time to read this full profile.
    When you do, you will know whether or not I am a good fit for your situation.
    You will know whether or not we go to the next step of having a video chat to see if we are a match.

    Recent 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 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 I'm 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 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 with me.
