About Professor Smedley
Professor Smedley is a tenured professor at Sacramento City College (SCC) in Sacramento, California. She has taught at various levels and at various schools for over 20 years. She holds a Master of Science degree in Computer Information Systems, a Bachelor's degree in Vocational Education, an Associate of Science degree in Management Information Systems, and certificates in Online Teaching and College Counseling. She has been a presenter at several workshops and conferences and has been a presenter at local high school career day events.
Professor Smedley has taught Business English, Business Communications, various Microsoft applications courses, Keyboarding, and Virtual Entrepreneurship. Most of her classes are taught online to local community college students. The Virtual Entrepreneurship course teaches students how to create and operate their own home-based businesses.
Prior to teaching at the community college level, Ms. Smedley taught high school and Regional Occupational Program (ROP) business and computer courses to adults and high school students. One of her favorite ROP courses was a course in entrepreneurship. This course was close to Ms. Smedley's heart, because students actually created their own product businesses and held selling events on campus. Students were able to keep the proceeds from their sales, which motivated them to choose their products wisely.
Ms. Smedley's interest in virtual entrepreneurship began in the 1990s when she operated her own successful, part-time, home-based business in computer services for many years while attending college and teaching part-time. Her business offered secretarial services such as word processing, database management, spreadsheet creation, desktop publishing, report typing, and resume design. Her clients included business executives, fundraisers, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and individuals. Ms. Smedley was a virtual assistant before she had even heard of that term!
Working at home allowed Ms. Smedley to spend more time with her husband and two young children when she was not attending college, teaching, and/or studying. Prior to owning and operating her own business and becoming a professor, Ms. Smedley worked full-time in administrative assistant positions for nearly ten years.
Through her Virtual Entrepreneurship book, Professor Smedley believes that she has come full circle in her professional development.

The book, The Virtual Entrepreneurship Textbook is by Professor Lauri Smedley.
Last year, Lauri contacted me by email and invited me to take part in a survey she was conducting as research for an upcoming textbook for a college course all about virtual entrepreneurship. I responded with a resounding yes, I would love to participate in the survey. I then invited her on the show and our conversation aired in one of the virtual assistant podcast episodes Episode 42: Your Input Counts. In the episode Lauri talked about the course she teaches at Sacramento City College and the research for her book.

And to Lauri, congratulations to you; your hard work and dedication is to be commended!
