Meet THE Team
Our team consists of talented and skilled individuals with experience across various areas, including virtual assistance, graphic design, video editing, website and blog editing, and social media marketing to name a few. At 8point8, all of us are experienced in working virtually and we are ready to support you – wherever you are in the world.
Meet some of our team members – experienced remote staff who have the skills, dedication, and passion to move your business forward.
8point8 was founded in Cebu, Philippines. When we started in 2017, we had a goal to help coaches, course creators, and entrepreneurs. With us, they can delegate tasks they don't want to do or have no time for. As a result, they get their time-freedom back and keep their sanity intact too.
As years passed, we continue to build trust with our clients through our dependable and friendly team who can handle just about anything you need help with, allowing you to focus on what’s important.
It is our goal to take away the hassle, stress, and time-consuming everyday tasks that get in the way of more important things. We offer skilled support without the headaches of using costly recruitment agencies or employing full-time staff.
About the Founder
Hello, I'm Lisa Sabala, and I'm a virtual assistant with over 10 years of experience helping busy professionals and business owners streamline their operations for greater success and freedom.
I founded 8point8 to provide practical, effective virtual assistance services to professionals and entrepreneurs like you. Our team is made up of skilled, detail-oriented virtual assistants who take the time to understand your unique needs and deliver results that help you achieve your goals.
In 2015, my husband Lee, a successful architect and loving partner, was diagnosed with rheumatic heart disease. Although Lee's health was declining, I was able to spend more time with him because my virtual assistant team was there to keep 8point8 running smoothly.
After seven years of surviving with a heart condition, Lee passed away in August 2022, leaving behind our three boys. While it's been a challenging time, their love and support, the family surrounding me, along with that of my work tribe at 8point8, have helped me keep going every day.
Now, more than ever, I believe that business owners and busy professionals need a team to build their systems of operation and achieve their goals. Without support, their productivity and growth will be limited to the time they personally have available. That's where 8point8 comes in. We provide virtual assistance services that allow you to step away from the grind, be creative, and develop growth plans. Whether you need help with administrative tasks, social media management, or content creation, our team is here to support you every step of the way.
I understand that using my personal story is a delicate matter, and I want to make it clear that I'm not exploiting my experiences for marketing purposes. I'm sharing my story to help others understand how having 8point8 to back me up made a big impact in how I overcame difficult life events. My story is evidence of why I'm so passionate about helping other business owners. With 8point8 supporting you virtually, you can focus on what really matters and achieve greater success and freedom. Because no matter how good your business is, no matter how much money it's making you, it cannot be traded for precious time you are missing out on with people you love.
Thank you for considering 8point8 for your virtual assistance needs. We're here to help you build a better business and live a better life with the time freedom you deserve.
Rooting for your success,
At 8point8, we can help with both your work and personal life tasks, allowing you to focus on what’s most important.
