A snapshot of the life of a virtual assistant

Posted on Categories Angel BlogTags , , , ,

The past few weeks have been very hectic week for me while wearing my Virtual Angels hat.  In the last week I have finished working with one client on site, this was intended to be a part-time three week role that began in February!  Extended several times and taken because December and January were quiet, it became tricky for me to balance everything that was going on.  During the same period I signed up two more clients, one which also involves some on-site work, great news!  With balancing my long term clients, the new clients and running Virtual Angels, I certainly needed more hours in the day or maybe my own VA!   So as you can imagine, as virtual assistants we really do understand the need for support and the importance of being able to balance work and life, with delegation when required.

During this busy period one of the events I have been involved with was the launch of the ‘Humans of Healthcare‘ art exhibition by Spark the Difference a social enterprise created by the amazing Sam Meikle.  Sam founded Spark the Difference, to ignite passion and possibilities in healthcare.  Building on her experiences from technology and health, Sam now brings bright ideas, people and opportunities together to propel positive change in healthcare.  The exhibition launched last week, on 5 May, and the evening was a huge success.  All the stories and pictures of the ‘Humans of Healthcare’ are inspiring and wonderful, do go along, take your headphones and a box of tissues!  The exhibition is running until 31 May 2016, at The Artworks Elephant, a short five minute walk from the Elephant and Castle station.  Sam and Howard are shown below, live from launch night, with their original images.

To top it all, Virtual Angels celebrated our third birthday!  It has been an amazing three years, with great highs and a few hiccups along the way, adjusting to being self-employed the big hurdle for me, though for my control freak gene, perfect!  I still remember the ginormous smiles on both of our faces when we won our very first client, what a day and memory.

Thanks to everyone who has supported Holly and I over the past three years and we are both looking forward to many more!
