mentorship

Early in my career, I was lucky enough to work for a man who taught me many of the fundamental values I hold to today.  One of his favourite sayings was that I was not paid to sit at a desk from 9-5, but rather to 'do a job'.

I answered a really awesome question recently from one of the members of my Passport Club - she said...

"I need to know how to take what I know I can do and turn it into a strategic business case / plan for a prospective client. It's one thing to say, I can do admin, social media assistant, content curation, graphics, etc, but how does that go from a "resume" to a business??"

How To Finally Remove The Roadblocks To Success As A Virtual Assistant

Tuesday, March 07, 2017
