The Doctor or The Dinner Lady - Who's More Successful?

Thursday, June 25, 2015

I thought success was directly related to my bank balance, my home and its contents and my car. On a mentorship call I was holding with a group of people on my Rockstar programme I recently used the analogy of the Doctor and the Dinner Lady, I wanted to share this with you.

Potential Clients Don't Seem To Want My Services - Do I Change Them?

Thursday, June 18, 2015

My Client Is Asking Me For Things That Don't Make Any Sense

Thursday, June 11, 2015



If you've been a virtual assistant for a while now, you've probably at some point or another had a client delegate tasks to you that don't make sense. This isn't uncommon, and it really depends on the client, and their level of experience with the tasks they happen to be delegating.

My Online World Turned Upside Down - By ActiveCollab

Thursday, June 04, 2015



This week I've literally had my online world turned upside down by the release of ActiveCollab 5 (as you can tell project management in VMF for my clients means a lot to me, so this really isn't me overdramatising, it's really a big thing that I want to share with you).

Wednesday, May 27, 2015



I made a vow to myself when I launched my new website design in April, that I would always bring you truth from my experiences on this blog, no matter how weird or bizarre or hard to swallow it may be, and this is one of those times where I would of thought, "Nah, nobody want's to hear that" - but actually I think you need to.

Beyond Backups - Adobe Business Catalyst For Wordpress?

Wednesday, May 13, 2015



Earlier today we received a support request from someone who is moving away from Adobe Business Catalyst in favour of Wordpress, primarily because they don't believe they use the features that ABC provides. I get asked a lot about the Wordpress/ABC comparison, and thought this would be good to share, since most people believe all they need is a backup of their Wordpress site for it to be 'okay' but in our experience that's not the case.

Is Too Much Desk Time Affecting Your Waistline?

Wednesday, May 06, 2015



Have you been feeling that your desk job has taken its toll on you?

Basically it's pretty normal that they get to a certain point and then everything comes to a grinding halt.

Competition - Probably The Most Misinterpreted Word In Business

Thursday, April 23, 2015



If you're in business or just starting a business you may have heard of the word "Competition" - this word, used in the context of business, almost sounds like business is some sort of game, and there can only be one winner, maybe a few runners up and a whole bunch of losers.
