I Need a Virtual Assistant!

Are you feeling busy and overwhelmed? Are you an entrepreneur? Do you wish you had more time to spend with your friends and family? When your friends call on the weekend and ask you to do something fun do you say, “I’m sorry I have to work this weekend”. Are you constantly telling your kids, “I’m sorry I can’t play with your right now, Mommy (or Daddy) is busy working?” Are you tired of working ALL THE TIME?

If you are an entrepreneur and feeling busy or overwhelmed maybe now is the time for you to consider hiring a Virtual Assistant. Think of all the things you have to do. Do you really want to do those things? Do you even have time to do those things? Wouldn’t you rather be doing the things you love and working on what you are good at? You didn’t get in to business to do all the admin stuff... did you? You got in to business because you are good at what you do and you should be doing more of that and delegating all the other stuff.

If this sounds like you and you are ready to take the next step, I’d be happy to talk with you about how I can help you. If I'm not the right person for you I'm sure I can refer you to the right person. Contact me at

Why I think you should use your real name on Twitter

If you don't use your real name on Twitter...
  • I'm not sure who you are.
  • I forget who you are.
  • If I meet you in person I'm confused as to who you are unless you say I'm @TwitterIDSoandSo.
  • I start to wonder who I am talking to.
  • I don't quite trust you because I'm not exactly sure who you are.
If you already have a Twitter ID and don't want to change it because everyone knows who you are already then at least put your real name in your bio on your Twitter page. Why do so many of you not use your real name in the bio? And if you are all paranoid and don't want anyone to know who you are why are you even on Twitter? If you are cautious and worried about Twitter psycho's can you at least put your first name in your bio so I know you are a real person. If you are promoting your business via Twitter you could still put your real first name in the bio line so I know there is a person behind the business. I like people. I want to do business with people.

Thank you for listening to my Twitter rant.

PS. This post is not directed to anyone in particular. I have lots of Twitter friends who don't use their real name and even though I wish they would use their real names I still love them.
