End of Year Clean Up

Tis the season to start making sure my records are up to date, all is well in the business department and to see how much my revenue increase from previous year. I know each year I love seeing how much more I made than previous years. I am still not at my goal income and I still live pretty much broke, but I enjoy everything I do for work and looking at end of year to see even the smallest increase in revenue is what keeps me moving forward! This year, I had given up the Virtual Assistant business, only […]

Creative Business Signs

I am all about being professional yet creative when it comes to presenting your business to the public, of course most business signs are pretty plain and basic. After all we are professionals and a business sign is what makes or breaks that first impression. Since I am not a brick and mortar sort of business having an actual business sign set up out front isn’t important, I take take walk in clients with my virtual assistant business but I do like to ensure my online website is up to par with professional standards while still being unique to me.

Being a Virtual Assistant Requires Skills

Obviously when I started my virtual assistant business I was backing it with my years of experience in the office field. From a bank teller to an administrative assistant and office clerk I have the experience required to offer my skills virtually. Some of the skills I offer or projects I have completed were not based on my out of home work experience. Something like a screen capture isn’t anything I had to do before I became a virtual assistant and blogger. Taking a screen capture is actually convenient for the blogger side of me because it means I can […]

Looking for Writing Jobs

  Back in the day before I started my virtual assistant business and really dove deep into blogging for personal & money making reasons I started looking on Craigslist for jobs. You would be amazed to hear some of the jobs I actually did and some I didn’t do but found. I was making really good money between part time work I found on Craigslist and direct sales from home. I never went door to door nor handled any sales in person. I strictly worked from home without ever having to pick up a telephone, except for maybe the occasional […]

I Have The Skillz

Don’t question if I can spell or not because I do realize that skillz is really skills but the z just looks so much more cool, right? Anyways, about three or four years ago I was put into a position where I needed to make money from home to support a family of FIVE, yes that is true. I had the talent, the drive and the motivation but I wasn’t quite sure what type of field to go into. Then it dawned on me, I learned that a virtual assistant was listed as one of the top five businesses for […]

So many of us are looking for ways to make extra money from home and some of those people are stay at home parents […]

Catching Up On Sleep

I have been running around like crazy working LONG night hours, like up until 2am and trying to make the money my husband was no longer making since leaving his job in August.

That’s all that matters right now and with that income in addition to my blog and virtual assistant business, things will […]

Staying Focused, Connected and More

As Summer draws to an end and the warm days are here in NH it’s hard to remain focused on business needs. As a virtual assistant or a work at home professional you must be able to motivate yourself and continue to stick to a schedule no matter what mood you may be in. Lately I have been having a hard time focusing, simply because I need more “me” time.  I will be spending the last couple of weeks before school starts with my children more and so now my work schedule is changing, working in evenings rather than during […]
