I started my Virtual Assistant business when my son was about 8 months old. I remember doing my first transcription job with him in the highchair next to me. He napped several times a day (honestly, I don’t remember how much now, but it was enough that I could do most of my work while he slept).
The thing is, 8 months is a baby age. And babies tend to get bigger, more mobile, and more demanding. And he did.
And now? He’s coming up on three years old. His increasing independence and time in day care is moving the business into a new phase. One where I will have more time, greater predictability, and the ability to expand and explore new and exciting things (which is the topic of next week’s post!).
A reminder on my special offer for May: Any one off projects booked in during May will get a discount of £2 an hour, or 5% off a package rate (e.g. mailing list setup). This will apply even if the work is to take place after May is over. And the good news for my current clients with whom I have an ongoing arrangement, I will honour the £2 an hour discount for charges incurred throughout May.
So, if you are looking for some help, let’s have a chat! And in any case, I’ll see you here on the blog again next week!
