JVR Administration & Events

What does your company do?

For the past five years, my journey has been defined by a passion for administration and events, serving businesses and ministries with dedication and purpose. Although officially registered since April 2023, my venture into this realm began long before, driven by a desire to make a meaningful impact and facilitate growth within organizations. Initially, I embarked on this path through voluntary work, offering my skills and expertise to ministries and their leaders. These experiences were not just about administrative tasks or event planning; they were about building relationships, fostering growth, and bringing structure to entities driven by a higher purpose. With each opportunity, I found fulfillment in contributing to the success of these organizations and witnessing the positive changes that ensued. As time passed, my commitment to serving businesses and ministries grew stronger, leading me to formalize my venture and establish my own business. Since April 2023, I have been operating officially, providing tailored administrative support and event management services to a diverse clientele. My approach to business is rooted in a deep understanding of the unique needs and challenges faced by ministries and businesses alike. Whether it's streamlining administrative processes, orchestrating impactful events, or fostering growth and development, I strive to deliver excellence in every aspect of my work. Through my journey, I have learned valuable lessons about the power of dedication, resilience, and service. Every interaction, every project has shaped me into the professional I am today, fueling my drive to continue making a positive difference in the lives of those I serve. Looking ahead, I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and the opportunity to continue growing and evolving in my journey of entrepreneurship. With a firm commitment to excellence and a heart dedicated to service, I am eager to see where the future will take me and the impact I can continue to make in the world of administration and events.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Transitioning from volunteer work to a registered business has presented a significant hurdle: securing paying clients. Despite offering valuable services, there's reluctance among potential clients to pay for what they previously received for free. This shift in perception poses a challenge as I strive to sustain my business financially. While there are costs associated with running a business, many in the community still expect services to be provided without charge. However, my commitment to serving others remains unwavering. Despite the financial strain, I continue to offer my services for free, driven by passion and purpose. This decision is not only a reflection of my dedication to making a difference but also a testament to the importance of giving back to the community. Though navigating this hurdle is challenging, my resolve to support and empower others remains steadfast as I pursue sustainable solutions for my business within the community.
