Travel has always been something that I said I would do when I was older and the children were raised, but here I am journeying on a new adventure. This travel is as a Virtual Assistant and my path is the world wide web! Like the snowy, icy road above, it has been a slippery way, but in this New Year and with my friends, I will take flight, like the dragonfly over the Ocean!
I have been given an opportunity to travel along with other self employed, small business owners as I launch my own business! I have told quite a few folks lately, “I am flying on my own now.” This is inspired by the dragonfly that I so love.
Seriously though, Here I am. I am starting a new Virtual Assistant business with a new self hosted website – www.anitamhicks.com ! The road here has been a bit rough and I think my dragonfly’s wings are still damp! No matter – onward! In 2010, Virtual Assistance by Anita will take flight and soar into business.
This flight so far has been supported and guided by my wonderful husband, Danny. He has, out of necessity, become my web designer, my ‘how does this code work’ person, my co-pilot and my encouragement! A big thanks to him!
It is by the blessing of my friends and their excellent advice, help and encouragement that my business, like my beautiful blue dragonfly, is flying along this new path! Great thanks must go to Kim Wesley and Glenn Garnes. They are my solid rock that all dragonflies must have before taking flight. A huge thank you to my awesome friend, help and WordPress Super Woman, Michelle Mangen. Another amazing person in the creation and design of the new website, Deneen Wilson! A huge hug goes to her for the beautiful, blue dragonfly and for many hours of support to me! These folks are the reason that Virtual Assistance by Anita will fly over the snowy places and into the warmth of the sun in 2010!
There are many more folks who have reached out to me via the Internet to give me their honest input and help with regard to my business. I really appreciate you all — Marie, Sandra, and Kathleen, are just a few! It is a truly amazing place here in my virtual world.
Just a few short months ago, I read the book The Go-Giver. The principles of giving, without expecting anything in return, are outlined in this book! It was one of my first inspirations for becoming a Virtual Assistant. I can see that there are people in the world who are willing to help you, just because, without expecting anything in return. It has been my personal experience in the past month alone that dozens of folks have reached out to me. A select few have become my close friends.
Happy 2010! Happy New Year! Come on over and visit me at www.anitamhicks.com! Leave a comment, Please ! Tell me what you think! I love input! 🙂
