The Sun is Shining but the E-mails Need Mailing!

While the days seem longer this time of year, most business owners can’t seem to find the extra hours in the day! Outside the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, but in the business world, faxes are faxing, phones are ringing and deadlines are nearing! Whether your business picks up during this season, or slows down more than you’d like, there is still so much to do! I’ve found that when my clients delegate their ever-pressing projects to me, a sense of peace washes over them, no matter what the situation. Knowing there is someone you can...

The Summer Boom

The Summer Boom

With the summer season in full swing, I can’t help but think, how does the season affect local businesses?  For some, it’s their big revenue season; they’ve got the potential to make a LOT of money in a short few months.  For others it is the “slower” season, where budgeting is a must to make ends meet.  Local snow cone huts, water parks, amusement parks all seem to love the summer boom!  In my line of work, I see the benefit to both the busy summer businesses, and the less busy.  With the busier ones, help is definitely needed to make sure...

Women often run the household, play taxi for the kids, cook, clean, tend to their significant other and sometimes work on top of everything! They can easily get buried under all these duties and forget about “me” time. Any woman reading this is nodding her head in agreement! My applause goes to all these modern day super heroes. If you’re one of these, and you do run a small business, or work for a small business, I’m preaching to the choir. You’ve mastered the...

Time Is Money

Time IS Money – But wait…what about “me” time? As one could imagine, I’ve attended my share of networking events while building my business.  I’ve had the honor to swap stories, exchange ideas, brain storm and laugh with other brilliant people in business. When talking about the struggles within their companies, I’ve noticed a trend, “Not enough hours in the day”.  If you’re a business owner, an employee, a mother, a husband, ANYONE, you can relate to this! I’ve offered helpful tips, give any advice I can come up with, and refer to...

Compatibility is Key to Working with a Virtual Assistant

Posted by on Mar 19, 2012 in Blog, Using a VA | Comments Off on Compatibility is Key to Working with a Virtual Assistant

In the 7 years of working as a Virtual Assistant, I’ve had a multitude of opportunities to do some awesome work for my various clients.  As I’ve grown my business, I’ve stuck to a very basic, yet often forgotten idea: “My success depends upon your success, which is why I always give you my best.”  Often times a client may be hesitant to give up the control of a daunting project, even though they know they’ll never get to it in time. When they finally “find the time” to get to it, they’re so frazzled that often the project isn’t completed with...
