Me? I’m Catherine and I am one of many things, as I guess you are too – but don’t tell anyone, I can’t multi-task.
I first started my business back in 2016, I’m a Virtual Assistant. I decided I needed to stop the 9-5 primarily to help manage my health. Addison’s disease and recurring pituitary tumours are a part of my life, with those come a cocktail of medication to keep me alive every day and also keep me exhausted, so working a traditional job that gives me a survival income isn’t really an option.
Saturdays used to be the only day I really felt were for me when I was employed. I was sick to death of working in a thankless, stressful environment. This can’t be what life is all about, surely? Counting down the years to retirement, but then wondering if I’d even make it that far if I continued as I was.
Fast forward a few years and I continue to run my Virtual Assistant business, but I have also written and published an award winning, bestselling book to help others start their own successful Virtual Assistant business – How to be a Virtual Assistant is available worldwide on Amazon, Kindle and Audible. I also mentor other virtual business owners to help them build and grow their business via my online membership.
It really is true; find a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.
I also enjoy sharing my knowledge by speaking at events, and that’s how I met Julie! By speaking at one of her events in 2019. Find out more about how I can inspire your audience here.
I do look forward to finding out all about you too.
