Hi everyone, I am Marion and I live near Sittingbourne, Kent. I have over 40 years experience of Executive PA/Senior Technical Analyst work. With the last 20 years of that working for a London company (with latter 6 years working remotely).
At the end of 2018 I took voluntary redundancy as the company changed hands thinking that I would be able to work locally. But, as others have found out, it was not to be that easy. Working part time for a local estate agent I then found myself out of work during this pandemic.
With a couple of mistakes made when trying to join online schemes and losing money I was told several times to be a VA. So that is what I am trying to do.
But having had my confidence crushed a bit after being told at an interview “why don’t you retire?” I am wondering whether I would be considered too old!
I have blogs, had my own websites and am always online and I have enrolled on courses that are supposed to help and have now found my way to your lovely forum.
This is not a hobby - I need to work financially and mentally but am worried I may not be good enough.
Anyway - that is me - thanks for letting me join.
