  1. Thanks all for your good wishes. My first two weeks have been interesting. Some days have been pretty quiet and others I have been rushed off my feet. Someone who has been a "potential client" for months and months is finally coming good and my other new client has been great to work with so far. I am definately enjoying the freedom but still adjusting to the new way of life. Lyndsey - I may be in touch soon because the only thing I miss about working in an office is the company so a chat would be good! Best regards to all.
  2. Thanks for all the words of encouragement and support. I have been working part-time as a VA for nearly a year now and already have some clients. I hope that I will be able to use my increased availability to attract more new ones, yesterday was certainly a great start and gave me the lift I needed and the confidence that I can make it work. Thanks again.
  3. Hi all, I just wanted to share my news with you all. I was finally made redundant from my job on Monday! I have known that it was coming for some time and was getting increasingly fed up at having to go into the office every week and listen to one rumour after another about when it would actually happen. So now it's time for me to put my plans into action and have a go at running my business, on my own, just me without any back-up income from my job. I am so excited about finally getting the opportunity to do it yet I do feel a little overwhelmed by the amount of freedom and control I now have over my life. I don't have to set the alarm clock unless I want to, I don't have to work fixed hours, I don't have to justify an extended lunch break, I don't have to put in a request for holidays and I don't have to put up with back-stabbing, two faced, discriminative, exploitative managers ANYMORE!!!! (well unless I fall flat on my face!). I plan to try it out for about 12 months and see how it goes. A good sign is that I also got a new client today so maybe the Gods are smiling on me!
