Working ON Your Business

Last week someone asked me what it meant to "work ON your business, rather than IN your business".

When you are work ON your business, you are doing things that make you money. Doing the things that make your business grow.

If you are working IN your business, you are doing the day to day things that businesses need to keep running, but aren't making money. These things are necessary and must be done, but they are taking time away from the time you could use to GROW your business.

That's where I come in. I'll do all the things, while you make all the monies. I am the gift of time, my friend. And who doesn't want more time?

What Would Your VA do?

If you had a #virtualassistant, what kinds of things would you have her do? Expenses!! Nobody loves doing them, but they are kind of important items on the to-do list. I do expenses for many of my clients. Now THAT, they love.

12 Days of Christmas

Last night was the last night of the 12 Days of Christmas. Yes, I started on the 1st. Yeah, it would make more sense to START on the 13th. But there is method to my madness. You can enjoy the gifts for all 25 days my way.

Every day for the 12 DoC, I wrapped an ornament in red foil paper. I hand made each gift tag. I attached the tag with red & gray twine. Each one contains an ornament. An ornament that means something special to me and Mr. Handsome.

On the 12th Day of Christmas my girlfriend gave to me…

12 Guitars strumming
11 Rolls of sushi
10 Movie passes
9 Cups of coffee
8 Palms a-swaying (palm tree with Christmas lights)
7 Months together (ornament frame with our pic)
6 Nights in Vegas
5 Gol-den Knights (hockey ornament)
4 Barking schnauzers
3 Chik fil A's
2 Margaritas
And a unicorn for the tree!

Holiday Duties

If you had a #virtualassistant, what could you have her do? She could shop for, write, address and mail your clients' holiday cards. She could even include gift cards for you, that she picked up on the way to the office.
