From time to time, I find myself feeling a little frustrated when I don’t quite “have it all together.” Case in point, I’m currently sitting in my home office which very visibly has not been vacuumed since my return from vacation nearly a week ago; the mail basket sitting on my desk is overflowing with envelopes I’ve yet to open; my voice mail box is so full it can’t take any new messages; and I’m sipping coffee from one of 3 drinking vessels left on my work station during the course of the week. (About 10 minutes ago, I picked up the wrong mug. Ugh!)
For a few years, a sizable portion of my income while working from home was made as a VA (virtual assistant). While I did well and worked with some wonderful individuals (partners as well as clients), I soon became dispassionate about my work. I was stubborn and slow to accept and learn about blogging as an important facet of running a successful business and I was overwhelmed by social media in general. I’m not as stubborn as I formerly was regarding these common business tools, and while I still have so much learn about them, I am genuinely making the effort.
