Happy 1st Year Work Anniversary To Me!
Today, 19th February 2017, marks the 1st anniversary of the day that I took my first steps in what some may refer to as a crazy risk, others have called it a brave leap, to begin my Virtual PA business, having quit my well paid job that I'd really, really loved being in for nearly 7 years, and WOW, has that year gone by quickly? I'm so proud of myself for having made it to the end of my first year and I am really looking forward to seeing what my second year brings!
Am I glad I took the leap?
You bet I am! It's been a huge learning curve; hard work, fun, stressful at times, but also very satisfying. I've been so very fortunate to have met and worked with some amazing and very talented business men and women who have helped me enormously on my journey so far. Whilst 99% of people have been incredibly helpful, supportive, appreciative and encouraging, I've also learnt that some people you just have to let go because the whole point of working for myself is to make my life better. There's no longer any room in my life for people who make me unhappy so I will only work with like minded people where we can both bring value to each other. I hope I have done that this past year, whether it has been by supporting someone with their emails, transcribing Minutes or YouTube interviews, researching travel and hotel bookings, or helping keep their bookkeeping up to date, I believe that I have brought value to their businesses.
So a big - no actually a massive - THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to every single one of you who may have played a part in encouraging me on my way; from my family and friends, to all my wonderful clients past and present who put their faith in me (you know who you are) and here's to many more years of working virtually (and some not so virtually) with you all!
THANK YOU ALL and CHEERS!
