My name is Lisa McFarlane, although I joined this group a while ago, I have been busy leaving the corporate world after 15 years and relocating my family from British Columbia to a small town on the Southern Shore of Nova Scotia (much closer to our families in Newfoundland ).
Now I am setting up a new VA business. I'm struggling with coming up with a name, and find it is delaying my getting going. After some brainstorming over the past few days, I came up with 'Balance Business Solutions'. I would love to hear feedback - both good and bad...
My background is finance / commercial mortgages / real estate, so I plan to target commercial mortgage brokers, private lenders, and small real estate developers. In addition to some admin, I would offer financial modelling, analysis, market research, loan presentations, proposals, etc.
I'm married with 3 children ages 7, 5, and 2. We moved to Nova Scotia to be closer to family, and for a slower pace of life and to spend more time together as a family. The challenge right now however is learning to carve out the time to work each day when the playroom is right outside the office and little ones are calling.
I'm looking forward to connecting with others and sharing the journey!
