My name is Cindee Houk, and a couple of months ago, I decided to make a significant change in my life after over 27 years in the health insurance industry.   I was so stressed out for such a long time, and my health and well-being were suffering.  Suddenly finding myself 50 years old, I didn't want to continue living this lifestyle.  That was when I decided to make a change.  I did a lot of research into careers I could do at home. Not wanting to work with insurance any longer,  I thought of how I could use my skills to make a living.  

I stumbled upon Virtual Assistance.  After researching this field and telling others about my idea, I realized there is a considerable need for these services.  Just by telling people I know, I have already received several prospects.  

Since my job required a lot of long hours, I decided to take a risk and quit my job.   It's scary, but I know I will be successful and it's much less terrifying than the thought of being unhealthy.

I created Virtual Assistance by Cindee, and my services include Social Media Management, Social Media Ads, Writing/Proofreading, Administrative Services, and graphic design.  I'm so excited as these are all things that I love to do, and my job will never be tedious or stressful. My website is in the process of being created and will be up and running soon.

I reside in Roseville, California, and am the mother to an awesome grown-up son who travels the world.  My favorite things to do are riding bikes, reading lots and lots of books, traveling, and going on long walks.  I'm also a Gonzaga Men's Basketball fan as well as a NASCAR fan!

While taking a virtual assistance class by Kayla Sloane, I found VA Networking.  I am looking forward to obtaining resources to help me with my business as well as meeting others who share my passion for Virtual Assistance.

Welcome Cindee! Way to go looking after you and your health first and foremost. That is such a awesome decision you made in your life and one you will appreciate years down the road. There is nothing better than to be a VA to work where you want, with whoever you want, whenever you want! ;)

Sounds like you are way ahead of the game already with website on its way plus I see you are a VAinsider (great decision!).

I love traveling and Nascar too so we have something in common. ;) 

We have tons of resources for you here and hope to see you tomorrow at our VAinsiders Coaching Call.

Thanks for the warm welcomes Tanya and Danielle!  Unfortunately, I won't make the call today as I have a prior appointment.  I will be on the next one though.

Have a wonderful day!
