My Newest Client…ME

It has been a big year for me.  A year ago I started this awesome journey of being a virtual assistant and starting my own business.  In the past year, I have grown from one client to nearly nine and growing!!!  I have networked locally, virtually and even started a website of my very own.  Yes, it is a work in progress and not as refined as I would like.  But there is room to grow and improve–a journey!

Through this career, I have afforded myself flexibility to work around my kids’ schedules, be at their events and help them with their homework.  Along with this flexibility, I have rediscovered the competitive, hard-working ethic that propelled me through college and graduate school.  I love my clients.  I want to work hard for them, do my best and see their business grow.  This drive became a little buried over the past few years as I focused more on settling our family and making sure the kids and my husband’s needs were met.  I still need to do that, but there is more in my life driving me.

The one thing, however, that I have let go is my fitness routine.  I have never been a workout queen of any sort or one to run a marathon.  But I have always maintained some sort of workout regime just, so I can honestly answer the doctor each year at my physical.  Lately though, my pants have been a little tighter and I feel out of shape.  I always said that I don’t need a scale, but rather my pants will tell me when I am out of shape.  Well, they are screaming at me!!!  WORKOUT, JENNY!!!!!!

So I have hired myself as a virtual assistant to maintain my workout goals.  I am going to do the Couch to 5K program and get back into fighting shape.  Okay, I really just want to drive down the road without feeling my stomach on my pants button.  Can I get an amen!  I am going to use the app to guide me in my routines and integrate the workouts into my work schedule.  That darn exercise will be on my daily To-Do list, and goodness knows I cannot stand an unmarked To-Do item. runfbI do not plan on posting my progress on my business Facebook or website, but rather hope I can integrate this into my work routine better than I have been.  So wish me luck…I have a feeling I might be my most challenging client!
