MH Creative VA

Having gained over a decade of admin experience, Melonie Hopkins from the Isle of Wight, launched her business MH Creative VA in early 2022.


It is designed to provide social media support, copywriting and virtual assistant services to busy sole traders and small businesses on the island and further afield. 

Melonie helps business owners free up their time to focus on what they do best, rather than them struggling to keep up with admin, blogs, and social media. She offers three affordable social media packages as well as copywriting and VA services on a pay-as-you-go and retainer basis. 

Not only has Melonie been establishing her new business, but she has also been getting used to a new life on the Isle of Wight. 

“I moved to Cowes just 12 months ago, so I’m relatively new to the area and now that I’m settled, I want to get out more to meet other local businesses. GetSet Solent suggested I exhibited at the GetSet Solent Connect Expo, and it was a great way to meet other like-minded business owners and make useful connections.” 

GetSet Solent has also helped Melonie get MH Creative VA off to a flying start. 

“I’ve spent over 10 years in administration working for many different sectors but it’s very different to running your own business. While I know lots about business, the GetSet Solent workshops go into great depth. The branding workshop made plans clearer in my mind and enabled me to move forward. I also attended sessions on business finance, high-performance strategy and how to harness LinkedIn for professional growth, which have all helped me. 

“I’m being coached by Charlotte from GetSet Solent, and she’s brilliant. She’s very quick to answer my questions and point me to useful sources of information. It’s great to have her input when I need it.” 

The GetSet Solent programme has boosted Melonie’s confidence as well as build her client base. She is already thinking about ways to expand and is exploring the potential of hiring associates in the future.
