Back in 2009, when I first launched My Virtual Assistant, I figured that a lot of the work I’d be doing would be things like typing meeting minutes, letters and reports. Not that I mind doing that kind of stuff, but it’s funny how things turn out.
Instead, the kind of work I am being asked to do most often, are things like newsletters, media releases, internet research, website maintenance, designing flyers and other design work, along with a spot of photography and also a number of CV’s (sign of the times, I guess).
It’s been just over a year since I started working from home and I have to say that one of the best things about setting up my business is working with such an interesting array of clients, as well the chance to learn about a variety of industries.
I find my work extremely interesting, a wonderful challenge and I enjoy learning new things in order to accommodate my client’s requests. It’s a very refreshing change working with various business owners, as opposed to working at the same company every day with the same people.
