Hi from Sunny Scotland

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself :wave::wave:

I have been working as an EA/PA for the last 10 years and decided if I didn’t make the leap now to work for myself to allow me to have a (slightly) less stressful juggle of work and 3 young children then I never would!!

I have worked in events, property and land management for most of my career and will be setting up as a VA working across East Scotland.

I am an equal mix of excited and terrified and looking forward to getting to know some of you and getting lots of useful advice and have a network of people to chat to on the lonely days… I think the lack of company during the day will be what I will struggle with the most.

Thank you for reading :slight_smile:

Hello!

It is all very exciting and terrifying. What I will say there is such a huge community of VAs and others who work from home out there that they sort of become your ‘work colleagues’.

I regularly meet up with others who work from home and we have a virtual lunch break.

It isn’t the same as physically working with others but it’s nice to know what if I need to there is always someone around to talk to!
