Some people say we should separate work from home. I don’t. Why? I am a virtual PA (I know you know that since you’re on my blog). I am my business. I am also a mumma, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend. This is the reason why I sometimes share stuff about my life. You get the commodity, the full packet and why wouldn’t you want it? It’s those things that drive me. It’s those things that make me work hard and given me the ability to process and work how I do.
A great friend (Hi Joel!) told me; “people buy from people.” From that moment I made the decision to be me. 100% me. I think that is shown by how I network. I go in my dress but always wear my red Vans! If you meet me on a normal day, I usually wear jeans and Nike High Tops.
Why? I spent many years in the corporate world where I looked like everyone else, I couldn’t express me. Now I am me. I have multi coloured bits in my hair, well, they were purple but they are fading at different rates so look pretty cool at the moment (if I do say so myself). I wear the clothes I am me in.
I love my work. It doesn’t feel like work. I have some amazing clients who range in industry and its bloody awesome! But, each client knows and respects the fact that I am me. Because that, my friend, is the way I roll!
