The Woman Behind The Brand
I have a passion for getting to know people, building relationships and always hungry to learn. So let’s dive in to how my career experience has inspired me to become a small business owner myself!
I have a hospitality background which allowed me to learn a lot from different departments in a hotel or catering company. I always knew I wanted to have a career where I could learn the ins and outs of a business but never get bored. There’s never a dull moment with the hospitality industry let me tell you!
Fast forward a few years…I decided I wanted more of a 9-5 career and have been in the financial industry for over 7 years now. Working for a small family owned corporate office allowed me to gain even more knowledge of how a business operates. Within the last several years I have worked with amazing small business owners across the country that truly opened my eyes to what it would be like owning my own business. I also established relationships with Ramsey Solutions, Transamerica, Ameritas and other large corporations which sharpened my skills in marketing, social media and events.
During this global pandemic and so many businesses having to learn to pivot by operating virtually made me realize my skillset was needed in a lot of ways. I decided to form The Golden Solution LLC to give busy entrepreneurs and small business owners an opportunity to focus on the parts of their business that they love while I get to do what I love as well.

The two people that raised me to become the woman I am today...
Meet Trudy and Buddy Lindsey, also known as my Nana and Papa. They truly were my world and I miss them every day. I want to share with you what made them so amazing and why starting my own business means so much to me.
Papa had a 6th grade education but was a maintenance mechanic for over 20 years with the factory he worked for. He loved tinkering with just about anything until he figured out how to fix it. Papa would tell me it’s not always about book smarts but sometimes you have to use some common sense to get the job done.
Nana grew up in Germany and came to the states at 21 not speaking our language. She was an accountant for a building contractor for several years. Nana taught me that you have to work hard but also earn respect from the people around you.
Nana volunteered for many years running the athletic booster club for the local high school the majority of my family attended. She understood the importance of sports, education and being a part of a small community. I believe that’s part of the reason why I started to love event planning and the value of businesses coming together supporting each other.
Coming from a small town where everyone knows each other has been a blessing in a lot of ways. We support our small businesses and built relationships that have lasted decades and generations. They are the heart of our community!
I will forever be grateful for the lessons they taught me and the examples they set as my parents. They truly were the light of my life! I am told often that I am little Trudy or they see my Papa in my smile…I couldn’t think of a better compliment. I have no doubt they would be proud of this huge accomplishment in starting this business.

Shout out to my support team!
My daddy is such a hard working man that I love to death. The moment I came to him with the idea of starting my virtual assistant business then explained why I felt there was such a need he said, “well Priss sounds like you got it figured out.” He knows once I have my mind set on something I plan to make it happen. Thanks daddy for being so supportive of my dream!
To my brother and sister-in-law, I want to thank you for the endless weekends of spending time together. I look up to both of you for having careers you’re so good at, doing your own side hustles and building a life you enjoy. I couldn’t ask for better siblings always having my back!
My girl Miranda has been my biggest cheerleader. Our friendship means the world to me and I appreciate the endless nights bouncing ideas off of you to make this business happen. I am glad to have you in the passenger seat during this next chapter in my life (shenanigans and all)!
To my best friend Morgande, our friendship of over 24 years has had it’s ups and downs life threw at us. Having you by my side has gotten me through the hard times then celebrating the great ones. Thank you for being my rock, for always loving me for me and encouraging me to keep being the career woman I am.
