Five years down the line and it’s hard to believe how far I have come. I have worked in different sectors and different job styles. Some were fun and some not so much.
From working in a toy shop (basically playing with toys all day and using the excuse of ‘I’m showcasing them’ to my boss, who thought it was hilarious), to being a barista in 2 major coffee chains, to working in hospitality and office environments, I have ventured into the online world.
When Covid hit in 2020 (which was supposed to be a good year🤣), I realized the future of business was going to be online. After doing some research, I settled on a Virtual assistant diploma with Pitman training (Click here to check it out, really fantastic course).
When I lost my full time office job, it was the jolt I needed to start my VA business. My office job had become the source of all my misery and unhappiness and it was a relief to be free of it.
With mentorship from the wonderful Kellie Williams at At the drop of a Hat VA matching services (Click here to check out the services she provides), I have launched my business, Firebird VA, and am now in the process of building a network and honing my skills to find my ideal client and start this wonderful journey I have embarked on.
Always remember, a Phoenix has to burn before it can rise again. This is what I have based my business on. I had to walk through difficulties and unhappiness (the fire) to emerge on the other side as a phoenix ready to face this brave new world.
