A Day in the Life of a Virtual Assistant

Welcome to a glimpse into the daily routine of a Virtual Assistant (VA) - a role that's as diverse as it is dynamic. While each VA brings their unique flair to the table, here's a snapshot of a typical day in my world!

My day kicks off with breakfast, which I usually eat while playing a fake online casino game that I've played since 2016 - particularly during the challenges of the lockdown! Following this, I breeze through a brief skincare routine, brush my teeth, and if I have the time, I'll do a quick workout session in my garage. Currently, I'm hooked on Zumba dances, not just for the fun but also for the therapeutic benefits, especially in managing a foot injury.

After a shower and another round of skincare, I slip into my work attire - AKA anything elastic and comfortable - complete with makeup, ready to dive into the day's tasks promptly at 10 am.

The morning unfolds with a flurry of activity as I sift through personal and business emails, addressing urgent matters and organising the rest for later perusal. The core of my day revolves around tending to my client's needs, from curating engaging social media posts to crafting captivating graphics for new projects.

By noon, it's time for a well-deserved lunch break, during which I unwind with a gripping crime documentary, or another round of watching The Golden Girls! Post-lunch, I shift gears to attend to my own social media presence, engage in online networking, and revisit my inbox for any new developments. 

I wrap up client tasks by 5 pm, though I remain on standby until 6 pm, ensuring no urgent matters slip through the cracks. Once that's done and my evening is in full swing, I have my dinner and catch up on a variety of different TV shows from the week, or even indulge in a movie. 

I hope this glimpse into my day as a Virtual Assistant has shed light on the versatility and vibrancy of the role.

A Little Life Update!

Oh hey everyone! I know I've not been the most consistent on here in the last few years, but sooo much has happened. 

The last proper blog post I did was about a month before I set up my business - I don't know where to start so this is all out of order, but will try and do my best 😂

I no longer work at Morrisons! I worked there from June 2011 until December 2022. I quit on the 2nd of December so I wouldn't have to work there for another Christmas and it was the best feeling. I started my Virtual Assistant business in July 2022 and got my first client in November. That's right, I quit my stable job with only one client under my belt. Since then, I've worked with 6 of my own clients along with around 12 others as an associate VA. Currently, I have 4 of my own clients and help with 5 as an associate, and working a lot more hours. I LOVE this career choice and I'm so happy I made that leap.

Since June 2022 (the last proper blog post!), one of my friends had a baby boy, and another friend got married. I got to be her bridesmaid and it was such a lovely day. And another friend moved into their new home with their partner - it's a lovely house!

My Dad has also been unwell a lot, especially this year. He's been so dizzy/sick since Christmas that he's not been able to go back to work yet. Watching him trying to walk in a straight line is both hilarious and concerning at once - fingers crossed he is better ASAP. My Aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer and had an operation a few months later to remove it; it was successful! 

I've been to Florida again, along with another Center Parcs holiday. I won't be having a holiday for some time now as I need to focus on growing my business more and getting my income consistent. I digress... Florida in 2023 was really good, and I'm still in shock we got on 4 new rides at Disney, and then another new-ish one at Universal Studios. The weather was glorious and I had an amazing tan. 

I'm 80% sure a lot more has happened since my last update, but I genuinely can't remember off the top of my head! I'll try and do another update sometime soon 🙈

How have you all been this year so far? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

April 2024 Wishlist

Phew, this year is going quickly again isn't it - can't believe it's April already! January felt like a whole year in itself, but the last 2 months went by so fast.

Anyway, moving on to today's post - a wishlist. I've not made one of these for sooo long, so this is overdue... But here is my current wishlist for the time being!

As you can see, I'm in a bit of a pastels phase! I think it's the fact it's springtime and I'm loving all the colours that are starting to show up.

What's on your wishlist for April? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
