Good afternoon and happy Friday everyone!
So a little bit about me (will try not to bore you!)
Back in September last year I was sadly, like may others, made redundant due to COVID. It felt very sad as after 13 years with the same company, I wasn’t able to say goodbye properly to all my friends. Being the positive person I am, I took the news and embraced it (which did actually shock my husband). But it gave me the opportunity to focus on looking after our daughter and able to home-school her through lockdown.
During this time I applied for many project management roles, but the shear volume of applicants meant that even a response to say I wasn’t a successful applicant was few and far between. So on one of my many SD walks with my friend, I had a lightbulb moment! I was going to start my own VA business!
I am now in the last stages of setting up and hoping to launch Olive Branch VA early April. I have downloaded all the legal documents I need and updating them with my information, but this is an area that I find tricky! The jargon always sends my head in a spin! So this task keeps dropping down the list…eeek! Any tips would be appreciated?
Olive Branch VA ethos will be to EMPOWER business owners to work on their businesses not in it. Provide day-to-day admin and project SUPPORT and most importantly giving my clients and myself the life/work BALANCE we all deserve!
I am excited to be able to engage with so many like minded people and hope I can help you out in some way too!
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Its all quite daunting but incredibly exciting too!
