I've been a VA since 2012, but this is my first foray into blogging. I read and follow blogs from all over - hints and tips, industry news, personal updates - so why haven't I done it before? I think it's because I wasn't sure I had anything to say or that people would want to hear. Much of my work is results based, and blogging always came across as, well, a bit fluffy!
Then it occurred to me that small business owners want to know how to just 'do'. I'm not talking about self-promotion, or how to get more followers, but things that keep a business running smoothly such as organisational skills, using bookkeeping software, writing a formal letter, or chasing payments. That became my inspiration to create a blog and share my experiences with you.
I've worked with companies large and small, in a variety of industries, putting systems and processes into place to make life easier for their owners, their employees, and ultimately their customers. I've even become known as something of a handover specialist. (I can hear you now: "What on earth is a 'handover specialist'?" I answer that in my next blog post!)
So welcome to my blog, and please feel free to comment with your feedback or suggestions for something you would like to see going forward.
