Change Your Attitude, Change Your Results

You know the phrase, you are what you eat? That’s true in business too. OK maybe not literally, but the idea that your approach to something dictates the results you’ll get is something that’s been playing out for years, with thousands of business owners falling foul of it. Often they will take the approach of ‘if it isn’t broken don’t fix it’, preferring to focus on new things rather than changing the things they already do, But we believe this is wrong. Businesses should always be striving to improve their […]

How A VA Can Help You Get Your Pink Back

Did you know that flamingos aren’t always pink? They’re born as these fluffy little grey birds, which you could honestly mistake for any other baby bird. As they grow and mature, their soft down makes way for those iconic bright pink feathers. What can we say, we love flamingos! But the most interesting thing we learned about them is something we learnt just last week. Flamingos lose their pink colouring at one other point in their life, and you’ll never guess what it is.

The Art Of Admin Life

Admin is definitely a skill, and not one that everyone naturally possesses. But it is one that anyone can learn if they’re willing to put in the time and effort and understand how their brain works. A big part of admin is learning how to balance things, so you need to make sure you don’t spend so much time doing your admin that you never get anything else done. For some business owners, this means having dedicated admin time during the week, for others, it’s spreading it out little and […]

If you’re a business owner reading this, we’re willing to bet it’s been a while. As a business owner, you often find yourself trying to balance dozens of tasks for your business, decisions that need making and important deadlines to be met, not to mention your home life, children, and other family commitments.

VA vs PA – What’s The Difference, And Why Is A VA Better?

Why would I want to hire a VA? Surely if I need help, I should just hire an employee, right? Well, no. Not really. In fact, we’d argue that’s quite an outdated way of looking at things. Of course if you need more experts to deliver your services to your clients you should expand your team, but for things like admin, organisation and general business support, there really is no need to hire a full time employee. The role of the PA is all but dead nowadays, and has instead […]

Email Etiquette – The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

There aren’t really any industries out there that don’t use email. It’s just a fundamental part of business life now, and it’s often the only way we can communicate. So love it or hate it, you’re stuck with it! Now personally, we love email. It’s a really useful tool, especially as we work virtually, and need a good, reliable way to communicate with our clients. We wouldn’t really be able to function as a VA business without it. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its niggles. More specifically, there […]
