I write this message at the start of a brand new year, a time for new beginnings, new ideas, new careers, new lifestyle change, new work ethic – a time to open a brand new clean page of your life.
Fear is something that stops us from trying anything new and if we live in fear we can be crippled by it. As the years go by we stop and look back at our past and sometimes we think ‘oh I should have done that, but I was too afraid of failure’. Have you ever had those thoughts? Perhaps you did not give into those fears and started out on something new based on faith in yourself and capabilities, strengths and support of those around you. Now looking back you are glad you took that leap of faith.
I started my Secretarial business back in 1999 after a lot of thought, research, seeking expert advice who gave me the full go ahead. I never looked back and enjoyed this journey, but still a lot of hard work to be put into it. I found others like me and joined forums, networks. I found most people were happy to give advice and support you in your endeavours. I attribute my success to my faith in God alone.
Life is constantly changing especially technology at a rapid pace. More and more businesses are learning new ways to market their business online through social media, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other web applications. The Virtual Assistant keeps up with new technology as well and helps small business entrepreneurs to achieve their online presence.
Are you going to make changes this new year? Let us know your thoughts.
