The Don’t Panic Management Story
Don’t Panic Management began as a small freelance operation in 2009, with about 3 clients and very low expenses. It was an unfortunate time for the economy, but a wonderful time for creatives—especially those who had a bit of business acumen. People were getting laid off left and right, but at the same time were rebelling against the traditional economic boundaries and starting their own businesses. It was an inspiring time for entrepreneurs.
Just like with any business, growth is great, but it brings upon challenges. New business owners were finding success and needed help. They wanted to hire someone who cared about their goals as much as they did and were willing to put in the time and energy into their success. That’s where the Don’t Panic team came into play.
Cut to today, and it’s apparent that this virtual workforce isn’t just a flash in the pan. It’s the wave of the future.
Since we launched in 2009, our skills and experiences have grown tenfold. Our team is made up of foster parents, artists, marketing consultants, nonprofit leaders—the list goes on and on. But we all have one thing in common: a unique set of skills combined with reliability, humility, and a curious mind that help us make our clients’ dreams a reality.
Whether the goal is to create more written content, launch a podcast, or simply organize an inbox, our assistants can get the job done. Because we’re in the weeds of the day-to-day projects that allow our clients’ businesses to run smoothly, we’re able to get inside their heads and determine their needs often before they even realize them, and we’re able to make decisions on their behalf when they’re overwhelmed and overworked.
We’re not just virtual assistants. We’re something more. 50% executive assistants. 50% marketing professionals. 100% badasses.
We’re Don’t Panic Management—and we’re more than just a VA. Want to know more about how we work? Read our full manifesto here.
