- What is a virtual assistant?
- How much do they cost?

Cool Things Mentioned in This Episode
About Jaime Jay
Jaime Jay founded Slapshot Studio, LLC in 2013. He wanted a business that combined his life-long passion for the sport of ice hockey with his ability to build websites and thus the Slapshot Studio brand was born. With his signature customer service and DIY “get-it-done” style, Slapshot Studio quickly became the go to web development company for many entrepreneurs and small businesses.
At the core, the Slapshot Studio team develops WordPress website solutions that convert by integrating technology platforms such as Chatbots, funnels, social media, and more. Jaime is an amateur hockey player and starter geek who truly enjoys helping his clients build a solid foundation online that not only keeps his clients happy, but turns them into raving fans.
Since leaving the U.S. Army as a former paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division in 1994, he began working in corporate America. He worked for a couple different fortune 500 companies over the next 12 years. He learned a lot about business and working with others, but he never quite felt like he found his calling.
It wasn’t until the summer of 2006, when he co-founded a small real estate ad agency that he realized his passion for the entrepreneurial spirit. A whole new world opened up to him, but it wasn’t without heartache and trouble as the real estate bubble burst in 2008 and he lost all his customers in a span of just over three months.
After some considerable thought and self-grief, he picked himself back up and dusted himself off. He was always attracted to technology and most of his friends and family knew this. He decided to get back into web development and he bootstrapped his way from a one-person operation to a thriving business and a growing team as you will see today.
