Delegate, Focus, and GROW Your Business

My Inner Virtual Assistant was stuck in a different Hat

Thinking cap

Now that the hustle and bustle of the corporate world is behind me, my view of running a business is more evened out than ever before. As a business owner, I saw things from that perspective. Before I had my own business, I saw it from strictly a client’s view. Tasting the best (and worst) of both worlds has been a great benefit when it comes to assisting others with their business tasks.

Virtual Damage Control

ClicPhoto Studio | www.clicphoto.com.br

I think it is safe to say that practically everyone is familiar with the term damage control; whether it is a car manufacturer that is scrambling to correct a dangerous defect, a company with an advertisement that offended a particular group of people, or even a spouse that came walking through the front door with a fresh bouquet of roses.

The Virtual Assistant and a Date with Grandpa

Becca chose another path

It’s funny how we all seem to have certain things in our lives that are routine. Same old same old, sometimes everyday of the week; sometimes only a few days of the week.

For the most part, I tend to be a ‘fly by the seat of my pants’ kind of gal. Having nothing written in stone on my calendar allows me to be ready for whatever may come my way. I am enjoying this luxury in my life. Back when I had my own business, it seemed like every minute of the day was written in pen on my calendar. Looking back, I realize I missed out on a lot of things that probably would have been pretty fun.

Now things are different; and I like it. A lot.

Online Assistance at your Fingertips

I have been called many things when it comes to spending money. Frugal, conservative, cheap, and sensible. I strongly believe in squeezing every penny out of a dollar. And squeeze I do.

Apparently my children have picked up on some of my fiscal traits. My oldest, a teenager, can hold on to money better than any kid I have ever met. I get a big kick out of it when she’s bugging me to buy her something she absolutely has to have and I suggest she buy it herself or at least go halves with me.

Suddenly it becomes less of a ‘must have’. Yep, that’s my girl.

Virtually Old Fashioned

Like a lot of people I know, I have reconnected with some old friends on facebook. One of those friends and I go way back, as far back as fourth grade. We went to one of those rural schools that had all grades from kindergarten through 12th grade under one roof. So basically we grew up together. Somewhere along the line we grew apart and didn’t really hang out together after 9th grade.

Facebook brought us back together and we have picked up right where we left off in high school. Amazingly, even though we didn’t stay in touch for the past 20 some odd years, our characteristics and parenting styles are as similar as they could possibly be without us being actually related.

Well, with the exception of one thing. I’m not even sure what to call it.
