Hi everyone. I'm Angela


I’ve just joined SVA. I started my VA business in Aug 2021. I have worked in office administration for over 30 years. Finally decided it was time to work for myself and stop commuting 4 hours everyday to the office. So far so good.


Welcome, Angela. I’m just at the beginning of my journey and excited whilst apprehensive at the same time!


Hi Sharon
Thank you for your welcome.
Do you know why you are apprehensive?


A number of reasons really. The job I have I love but the company I work for has changed massively in the last 6 months and I’m not being treated very well which is causing stress but I’m torn between will they change back to what they were or should I quit the job I love?

I’m paid quite well and would want to maintain my salary level or beat it if possible but that should be attainable.

It’s the jump into the unknown I suppose.


Hi Sharon

In my experience things never return to the way they were.

It’s natural to feel apprehensive about the unknown. One thing is certain, you won’t know until you try.

Good luck and best wishes.



Welcome Angela , I started at the very same time as yourself.

Whereabouts are you based?



Hi Liam
Thank you for your welcome. I’m based in Eastbourne on the South Coast. What about you?


Sorry Angela , I’ve only just seen this!

I’m based in Doncaster, S.Yorkshire.

How are things going?



Hi Liam. Things are slow at the moment. How about with you?


Hi Angela,

Things are up and down, but I’m doing okay thanks.

Always up for a Zoom chat if you fancy it?



Hi Liam

When did you have in mind for a Zoom chat?



Hi Angela,

This week is fine if you have some availability.

Late afternoons are better , but not Thursday.
