Arlia Hoffman has been an integral, indispensable contributor to the growth we have experienced in the North Fulton studio of Business RadioX over the past few years. Arlia is very well-liked by our show hosts and their guests, and she represents our brand very professionally. She’s both talented and responsive, and we’re delighted to have her on our team!
Owner and Studio Partner, North Fulton Business RadioX
I am an Executive Coach who develops leaders and teams, specializing in emotional intelligence (EI). I needed someone who understands EI to maintain my online presence and establish an email marketing campaign. I write most of my content and Arlia does the design work before posting. She is doing things I don’t know how to do and don’t want to do, like setting up a Mail Chimp campaign for new, existing, and prospective clients. She also set up my EQ Mentor Zoom call landing page, registration, and confirmation messages. When Arlia and I first started working together we met once a month by Zoom to scope out the work; now we touch base as needed through Zoom, Slack or email. She is more like a partner than an assistant. Arlia really listens and contributes ideas — she doesn’t just perform assigned tasks; she adds value. I’m so glad I found her through Office Angels.

I am CEO and Founder of Wella’s Way, a unique worksite employee financial wellness program. Sponsored by employers as a group benefit for their employees, this interactive program helps people achieve financial literacy and wellness. It’s a technologically adept program with the all-important human touch that enables employees to schedule online phone appointments with a financial expert. I was doing research to find the right scheduling software but realized I needed an expert so I called Office Angels. Diane was able to validate my software choice and then she customized and branded it, creatively translating our welcoming and user-friendly look and feel to our scheduling system. She also did the documentation, coordinated the installation on the website, has been training the users, and is now creating video tutorials for all participants. Diane is very proactive and collaborative and I am blessed to have her working with me. I also have other Office Angels who are instrumental to our success. One is currently revamping our CRM system and handling social media and another Angel is doing new business lead cold-calling. All of this is done remotely with no problems. We have weekly Zoom meetings with the whole team. Office Angels is speed-dialed on my phone – we couldn’t thrive without them.
Nancy Riedel, CEO & Founder
Priceless Professional Development is a consulting firm helping organizations hire, coach, and lead to create a committed, engaged, happy workforce. Diane has been our Angel for about three years. She is amazingly talented and versatile. She does research for articles, creates graphics, updates our website, handles our assessment center, helps with events, and is adept at learning and using several of our software programs. One of the many advantages of working through Office Angels is that Diane can easily access other Angels when we need additional specialized talent. She is always responsive, professional, and very pleasant. She puts in anywhere from 2 to 15 hours per week, depending on our needs. She’s very self-sufficient and capable, and I trust her. Diane is a joy to work with, and she has become invaluable to us.

FIREPOWER is an employee onboarding concierge. We design customized plans to make the first ninety days of employment a productive start to a long-term association. We needed help with our social media marketing presence and engaged Helaine through Office Angels to create an editorial calendar and then disseminate our messaging. Helaine, with a marketing background, has a good eye for grammar and provided good feedback on content before posting. She has added value beyond just performing administrative duties. What I love about Office Angels is that they are professionals who are conscientious and take their work seriously. Once a client proactively establishes the relationship and lets the professional know expectations, it’s a set-up for success.
Maria Forbes, President
I specialize in PR and marketing and had been trying to run the firm myself. I realized I needed help with managing my own marketing and found Helaine through Office Angels in the fall of 2020. She has become integral to my business as my marketing assistant and sounding-board. Helaine is almost irreplaceable because one of her natural talents is being able to capture the voice of her client. I never imagined having anyone else put out social posts for me; I worried about it sounding inauthentic by not doing everything myself, but Helaine quickly became a real collaborator — she really understands my business. She now handles my routine social media posts and other marketing. We have weekly calls and negotiate schedules when I have additional support needs. Her flexibility and consistent availability are key things that make the Office Angels model work for me. As an important added bonus, we are kindred spirits in that we are both moms and understand and accommodate the inevitable family situations that arise.

I am the founder of OpaStrategy. I work with leaders and their organizations to accelerate their growth with confidence, ease, and joy. Together, we set vision and strategy, build high-performing organizations that can deliver, and coach leaders to drive change with ease and authenticity. Our Office Angel, Diane, has been working with me for about a year and is an invaluable member of my team. She is a fantastic researcher, helping me to quickly get up-to-speed on industry trends, and prepare content for my newsletter. She’s also a stellar operations manager, helping me with things like website updates and holiday card preparation. Benefits of working with Office Angels include their high-degree of experience and professionalism, their flexibility, and their competitive pricing. I’ve already recommended them to many coaches and advisors in my network.
Growth & Innovation Advisor|Executive Coach
I have had the pleasure of working with two Office Angels this year as I have served as Communications Director for the International Coach Federation, Georgia Chapter. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience. The Angels are experienced and get things done well, with limited oversight. They are very professional and responsive and it has been a pleasure working with them.
Office Angels uniquely positions me for greater success each and every time I enroll them. As an entrepreneur, I rely on Office Angels to make my business impactful, meaningful and sustainable.

I am President and CEO of Davis Consulting Solutions. We are a management consulting and community economic development firm providing diverse business and workforce solutions. I realized that I was missing many opportunities because I could not keep up with my email. Anitra Deen and Office Angels helped me get my office life together. I was functioning with five different email addresses and had approximately 20,000 messages in my inboxes. Anitra worked with me to create an infrastructure to electronically file and organize my email. She created various rules and templates that I can customize so that I don’t have to create messages from scratch. I am now able to quickly respond to inquiries and efficiently find and prioritize messages. We started working together in May 2021, primarily through Zoom. Anitra also created some Standard Operating Procedures and will be training my staff to maintain our wonderful new email management system. Anitra has been excellent about following up with me and keeping me on track —her personality is contagious. I am definitely grateful to have found her and Office Angels.

As a long-time client of Office Angels, I have come to rely on a number of their services in the operation of my consulting business. Their marketing services are exceptional — particularly in the area of design, material content, and website management. I have been extremely pleased with their work and recommend Office Angels without hesitation.

I wasted at least 20 hours trying to learn QuickBooks and was reluctant to call Essie because I assumed it would be so expensive. I was amazed to learn how affordable Office Angels is. My bookkeeper, Cynthia, has gone from one hour a month to two, but it’s the best money I’ve spent. Another Angel, Anita, helped me with LinkedIn and Debbie has provided excellent graphic design support. And now Karla is handling public relations, my monthly newsletter, webinars, and social media. She also expertly handled all aspects of my book launch. Each Angel is so good at managing their specialty area. In the future I intend to engage an Angel for public speaking support. My Office Angel team is the best and I have no fixed overhead costs.
Heather Rogers, Simply Organized
I am the national wholesale distributor of several exclusive jewelry lines. I’ve been using Office Angels for a variety of marketing and sales projects, including a redesign of my website, press releases, email blasts, brochure and website content updates, and a large and rush mail campaign promoting my appearance at a major trade show. I also recently had an Angel help staff my booth at a show in Atlanta. All of the Angels who have worked for me have been extremely professional, talented, responsive, and easy to work with on a virtual basis. I have been extremely pleased with the support I’ve been getting from Office Angels and plan to continue using them. They’re one-stop shopping for key support needs.
Lori Gadola, Link Design Accessories
The WBENC application process can be very tedious and seemed overwhelming. I travel a lot and having Debbie’s help was a life-saver. While I had all the information required, she organized it for me. She prepared a checklist of the documents I needed based on my business structure, made copies, prepared the submission, mailed the package to WBENC, and then followed up with them. It just wouldn’t have gotten done without Debbie’s support. I know my application is in process and I am confident that this certification will be beneficial.

Chief People-Whisperer/Executive Leadership Coach
I’m a communication and leadership coach. About a year ago I finally realized that I couldn’t do everything myself. I heard good things about Office and soon found my ideal executive assistant. Monique has been helping set up and organize my office systems. She creates a social media calendar and manages my online presence. She keeps me on track to write and publish blogs, reaches out to podcast guests, manages bookings, and gets the bios and head shots. Monique is my right-hand person, sounding-board, and confidant. In fact, she’s my whole back office! She’s not only a hard worker and very dependable, but she’s also a lovely person and we’re learning from each other.

Stacie Speaker Coaching
I engaged Leontine through Office Angels when I needed to prepare an employee handbook to comply with Department of Labor requirements. Office Angels was quickly able to connect me with Leontine, who is an experienced HR specialist. She asked a lot of thought-provoking questions and soon she was preparing job descriptions, recruitment ads, reviewing resumes, vetting applicants, prioritizing those who met our criteria, and scheduling interviews. She also helped me with the onboarding process and developed performance evaluation procedures. Leontine has helped me focus on my personnel needs as well as establish groundwork for dealing with personnel issues. She often serves as a good sounding-board and advisor. While I currently have four employees, before Leontine we had a revolving door. Now, she helps when needed. For example, when someone on-boards, she reminds me to conduct the 30-day review. Leontine is very easy to work with and definitely keeps the business owner’s interests in mind. Working with Leontine and Office Angels has been a very good experience.

I’m a busy architect juggling multiple projects and I needed someone to help me stay organized. Leontine has been tracking my projects and providing executive administrative and financial management support. She has a great sense of logic, is extremely proactive, and is upbeat and a pleasure to work with. She quickly learned my business and has tremendously facilitated our company’s operations. She’s averaging about six hours onsite weekly and provides additional support virtually. She has really streamlined my project management and I’ve come to rely on her quite a bit.

Our very busy consulting practice specializes in leadership training, executive team development, and coaching. We’ve been relying on Office Angels for many years. Currently two Angels are supporting us. Kerry is our point person for outreach on speaking opportunities and also manages ongoing contacts with prospects. Karla is helping us think through our digital marketing. She’s great at organizing information, proactively suggests ideas and solutions, and has a great sense of humor. We highly value the support we get from Office Angels. Essie Escobedo helps us articulate our needs and finds a great match, not just in terms of skill set but also work style. She is absolutely the best.

I am a small business owner providing management consulting services to mid-sized companies. I found Office Angels over a year ago and started with a contractor that provides me with weekly administrative, PR, social media and client presentation support. This individual has exceeded my expectations. In addition, when I needed a person to help me with a client survey, Office Angels was able to locate the right resource within days. Finally, I needed a bookkeeper and once again Office Angels located a highly competent resource for my needs. Essie’s customer service has been exceptional — she’s just a delight to work with. I highly recommend Office Angels to any small business owner that needs to supplement their team with capable, reliable and professional people.

Corporate Performance Strategies
Not only has working with Office Angels had a positive impact on the operations of my business; it has also helped the company’s image as well. Having help with scheduling appointments and managing my calendar saves me time and allows me to focus on revenue-generating activities. Now I’m not just a one-woman show. My theme this year is work less, earn more, play more and having an Office Angel has helped me to do that. I’m able to keep more regular office hours and have some down time, enabling me to enjoy my personal life much more! As the owner of a company, you should be focused on revenue-generating activities and bring in help for administrative activities. Calling Office Angels means you don’t have to find the best people and interview them — Office Angels does all of that. Office Angels is great at working with clients to provide great people within your budget.

I see why you call your resources “Angels.” From the beginning, we had a match and the foundation for a long-term partnership. Running a consulting firm means that my focus is on providing first-rate services to our clients and identifying and pursuing new business. Our Angel helps to work through that list of tasks that I know need to be done but don’t have the time to do myself, and it’s good to see some those items finally checked off. From client research and prep work to editing final deliverables, I appreciate having professional resources available as I need them.
Michelle L. Matthews, President
Matthews Consulting Group
As a former CFO for small companies, it’s not that I don’t know how to run a business. But the demands of my current role as a financial planner make finding the time to spend on my own business almost impossible. And frankly, I would be happy if I never had to do accounting work ever again. But the work is there and has to be done. My solution? Office Angels! After years of unsuccessfully trying to hire the “right fit” I turned to Office Angels who quickly found the perfect candidate…perfect for her experience, and almost as important, her temperament. It is a match made in heaven. I am just beginning to realize how far I can go with the right person to help me. Thanks Office Angels!

EnergyLink is an energy consulting firm. We broker electricity and natural gas contracts for Multifamily Owners and Operators. We’ve been working with two Angels — Michele and Kathy. They each work about 20 hours a week, providing data entry and billing support. They log into our network and prepare spreadsheets, perform analyses, and contact suppliers to research charges on bills. I trained both of them virtually and their productivity continues to increase. Previously, we attempted to get this support through various staffing agencies but the quality wasn’t there. Our industry is complex, and now, through Office Angels, we are getting the high quality and attention to detail that is required. The Angels have the flexibility to work on their own schedules and submit their timesheets with itemized detail on work performed each day. We check the quality of their work and so far it has been excellent. We will definitely look to Office Angels for additional support as our needs grow.

I’m the owner of a boutique consulting firm focusing on training & facilitation, project management, and stakeholder engagement. I’ve done about 50 events in 4 months and Maritza has been handling the administrative tasks, such as making travel and logistical arrangements, compiling evaluations, and managing event follow up. She’s very professional and gets things done on time. Having Maritza’s support to handle all the details when I have multiple events and multiple clients has given me the assurance that things will get done well and in a timely manner for my clients. I love the flexibility of being able to count on the same person who knows my business and who is available when I need her. Office Angels and Maritza have been invaluable to my business.
